The Gift of Giving

The Fund for Excellence (FFE) annual fund campaign enhances the HSES experience since 1991. The pandemic may have disrupted our bonds but it certainly has brought us together as a caring community.

We are humbly grateful for your support in this faithful journey to make our students thrive! Together, we can make a difference.

Preparing for Halloween

To ensure the safety of our campus, we are following the CDC recommendations to avoid high-risk activities during fall festivities.

This year, we ask parents to refrain from sending treats or goodies to hand out at school. We will also skip Halloween class parties and the exchange of candy or gifts.
