President's Note
Can we all just take a collective moment and smile at the beauties that are our children's school pictures this year? I know there are quite a few students who missed pictures, so here's a little word to let you know it will be worth your wait until make-ups are taken in the Spring. (PS - picture ordering deadline is Sept 2nd.)

I'm happy to report that our virtual PTA General Membership meeting was a success, and that those present voted to approve the PTA budget for 2021 - 2022.

Our Krispy Kreme donuts neighborhood delivery opportunity is live in our MemberHub store. Details are below.

The next PTA family event on the calendar is our Outdoor Movie Night at Stovehouse on Sept 13th. This was so much fun we when did it last October! We do ask that you register, but that's only so that the restaurants offering food specials that night will know how much they need to prepare. (The other restaurants on site will be open, too, but maybe not offering movie night specials. Eat wherever you like.) If you find out at the last minute that your family is free that night, PLEASE JOIN THE FUN, pre-registration or not!

Breaking News! Our spirit wear store will be open from Sept 1st - 15th. We will blast the store link through an EXTRA newsletter and all social media pages. This may be our only spirit wear opportunity this year - the vendors are having a very difficult time finding enough stock - so don't wait to purchase. Once the store closes on Sept 15th, that may be it for a while! (Hawk Pride members, be on the lookout for an email from Autumn Bray concerning your spirit wear perk included with your membership.)

Lastly, don't forget to join our HCES MemberHub and partner with the PTA by selecting your Hawk Pride membership level. The Hawk Pride membership drive ends on September 30th. (PS - saying again for the experienced parents in the back - Hawk Pride has replaced the old SOS Fund. There will NOT be a separate appeal to donate to the SOS Fund. Show your Hawk Pride instead!)

See you in car line!
