Recap - Recent PTA Events
  • Thank you to all the families who were able to join us for dinner at the Corner Stable in support of our PTA. We hope you enjoyed their crab cakes as much as we did!
  • The HES teachers and staff enjoyed a wonderful main course catered by Kloby's and sides and drinks donated by HES families as a small token of our appreciation of them during the February Parent Teacher Conferences.
  • Our first ever Family Sweetheart Dance was a big success! Over 80 families braved the cold to join us for a night of dancing, food, and fun. DJ Priestly from Mix 106.5 kept everyone dancing and having a great time to their favorite songs. Students, parents, and faculty showed off their dancing skills to "Whip/Nae Nae", "Cha-Cha Slide" and "Thriller". Michelle Anderson did an amazing job photographing all our families throughout the night. We also had lots of fun giveaways and prizes. We would like to thank Pepper Jacks, Pump It Up, Play N' Learn, Goldfish Swim School, and Mix 106.5 for donating the prizes that were raffled off to our families.
