Go Texan Day

Get into Rodeo spirit by polishing your boots and dressing up with your best Texas gear on Friday, Feb. 28.
And the fun continues at 2:30 p.m. in the Gym with a two-stepping, stomping, dancing event for the whole school. Parents and friends can also participate in this Go Texan celebration!

Shrove Tuesday

Join the Holy Spirit Episcopal Community for a pancake supper at Buffalo Grille on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. 

As a tradition of our community, we enjoy delicious pancakes, celebrate with family and prepare for the lent season.

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, Feb. 26 is the first day of the Lent Season and we invite you to join us for Ash Wednesday.

  • Father Josh, Father Kory and Chaplain Suzy will conduct blessings and Ashes at morning carpool, a tradition at HSES during this time of repentance.
  • Worship with Lower and Middle School during Ash Wednesday Eucharist at noon.

Games Wanted!

Students and chaperones that participate in the Costa Rica Cultural Exchange program (March 1-7) will partner with the Episcopal Diocese of Costa Rica to enhance the youth center at Hogar Escuela, Heredia. For this effort, the group is requesting donations of new or gently-used games for all ages.
Drop off game donations in the front office by Friday, Feb. 28. Thank you for your kind support, or as they say in Costa Rica: Pura Vida!

Positive, Effective Discipline

The last parent education session of the school year is with Deborah Fry, Ph.D. on Wednesday, March 4 at 8:15 a.m. in the Library. 

Dr. Fry will share the roots and causes of children's misbehavior, how to diagnose the misbehavior and apply the proper tactics to redirect behavior with positive, yet effective discipline. 

PTO Movie Night

Join the PTO for a fun Movie Night with friends and family Friday, March 6 at 6 p.m. in Palmer Hall.

Cozy up with a blanket, pillow, nap mat or plushie to watch "The Secret Life of Pets 2" in the comfort of your own school. Pizza and concessions will be available for purchase.

Uniform Update

Students tend to outgrow uniform garments mid-year. Until we transition to Dennis Uniform for 20-21, contact the school if you need to replenish uniform items.

Although Tommy Hilfiger is still the official uniform provider until May, we do not recommend to place orders through their site since we can't guarantee availability.
