Dear HES Community,
I want to take a moment to send out a sincere "Thank You" to every parent that braved the wet weather to set up, work booths, organize, sell tickets, clean up, and take down this year's Fall Festival. I was so humbled by the dedication you all have when it comes to "getting it done" for your kids!! The weather didn't do us any favors but that didn't stop the Hammond ES community for kicking off this year in a festive fashion!! You all are amazing and the HES PTA is extremely thankful to each and every one of you for hard work on behalf of the kids!!!
This event wouldn't be possible without the hard work and leadership of Michele Johnson and her team of "stealthy" team members and we, the Hammond ES community, are forever grateful for her leadership. You will be missed Michele!! Thank you so much for so many years of festive memories!!

At last year’s Boosterthon, PTA raised funds to have a rock wall installed in the HES gym. The P.E. department at HES is working with HCPSS on its purchase and installation. The current tentative schedule calls for installation during winter break. We will keep you posted about the progress in this project. Again we thank you for your support of the PTA.
HES PTA hosted a New Families Night on September 20, 2016 to welcome families new to the HES community and to ease their transition to HES through information, friendship and community resources. It was well attended by 8 HES staff members, 3 ambassadors, 31 new parents and 26 children. After an information and question/answer session, the adults were led through a tour of the school and then everyone enjoyed refreshments and conversations together.
HES PTA is excited to share how the No-Bake Bake sale donations to support grade-level Educational Grants are being utilized:
