Hawk News from the Principal

Hello HCES families!

I am noticing that we have many students being dropped off between 8:00 a.m. and 8:03 a.m. in the mornings. Please make every effort to have your children dropped off so they can be in class by 8:00 a.m. And if you are later than 8:00 a.m., please be prepared to sign your child(ren) in as tardy. We need to begin our day and testing is coming up in April! We are working hard, we just need your support.

Kindergarten registration for the 2020-2021 school year is now open, so please share with others in your neighborhood who will have Kindergarten students next year. It does assist us to know in advance how many students will be attending in the fall. We will be registering students from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please share the news with others in our school zone. K for a Day will be April 24th, but we need parents to register our K students and then we can reach out about K for a Day sign-ups.

We are so happy that the Cecil Ashburn road is now open. We started the early 7:00 a.m. drop off due to the road closure. Now that the road is open, we will no longer have an early drop off available next year. We will remain open at 7:00 a.m. through the end of this year. Next year, the doors will open at 7:30 a.m.

We want to welcome our new families who have joined our HCES family throughout this year and PTA had a wonderful idea to host a Newcomer Breakfast next Wednesday morning, February 26th at 8:00 a.m. in our library. We will share our many volunteer opportunities and answer any questions you may have about our school! We are truly a family here and we want you all to feel welcomed! Also, if you are not a newcomer but would love more information on how to volunteer or would like to volunteer a grandparent, you are welcome to attend our breakfast as well! Come join us!

We have decided to move our National Blue Ribbon Celebration to April, so more information will be sent home soon.

Some of our amazing parents are planning our Hawk Hustle run to raise money for our school. The T-shirt order forms were sent home last week. We hope you will mark your calendars and make plans to join us for the Hawk Hustle run on March 18th! It was so much fun last year!!!

Thank you all for your support and enjoy your nice long weekend!
Ms. Spivey
