Photography Session

As we work with a marketing agency to refresh the school brand, we will conduct a professional photography session on campus Wednesday, April 13 and Thursday, April 14 throughout the day. We will capture images that depict the school dynamic without interfering in the daily activities. The picture library will be used in future marketing efforts, including a new website design.

Uniform for Pictures

We ask parents to help us with the photoshoot by sending students in chapel uniform on both days if possible. If chapel uniform is not possible for both days, please consider an alternate uniform that matches the guidelines and represents the school's visual image. We appreciate your help to make HSES shine!
 

Spring MAP Testing

Remember that the last MAP® formative assessment takes place April 11-13 for students in K-8th grade. This evaluation process will help measure the year's academic growth of students in LS and MS. Please help students this week by establishing a healthy routine with prompt bedtimes, nutritious meals, early arrivals, quality hours of sleep and time to relax.

There is no need to register for the summer of 2022 since June and July fall under the 2021-2022 12-month contract. For students that did not re-enroll for the next school year, their last day of school is Friday, July 29. For students that will continue with HSES, the last day of school is Wednesday, Aug.10.
If you want to change your child's schedule for the summer, contact Toni Bejko to review options. Thank you for re-enrolling your child before the deadline as we now invite new students to our very popular program. If you are still considering re-enrollment or would like to add a sibling to the program, contact Jen McMahon to discuss availability and waitpool status.
