We’re wrapping up a busy week at HES! Now we turn our attention to a short, two day week and Thanksgiving Break.

Our book fair concluded today, with students, parents, and staff all enjoying the opportunity to visit the book fair and to purchase books.  With two book fair nights, parents and students were able to earn a book fair voucher and to use that towards the purchase of books. A special thank you goes out to Mrs. Davidson, Mrs. Frank, and Mrs. Gregory from FRC who helped make our book fair successful.

The HES basketball Bearcats went back into action Tuesday and went up against BJES.  Our students played extremely hard and showed they have made great progress over the course of the season. At the end of the night, all four teams came away with victories.  We are so proud of our athletes and the sportsmanship they continue to show. The regular season is now over, with tournament action beginning on December 3rd.
