Hawk News from the Principal

Hello HCES families!

This is Read Across America Week and several grade levels have fun activities planned for our students. :)

Our Hawk Hustle kickoff will be this Wednesday, March 4th! We hope you will help support our school. This year, we have an amazing group of parents coordinating our event. Please make plans to attend on March 18th and run with your child or volunteer!

Thank you to our PTA for hosting our Newcomer's breakfast last Wednesday and thank you to our parents who attended. We are still in need of library volunteers, so if you are interested in volunteering, please call the front office.

This Friday is the end of the third nine weeks grading period. All students in grades 2-5 must have their AR Goals met with 80% accuracy in order to attend the Mystery Trip at the end of the year. Please encourage your child(ren) to READ, READ, READ!! :)

We are making every effort to begin our day right at 8:00 a.m. so it is very important for students to be in class and on time. 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 need your support, please.

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.

Our National Blue Ribbon Celebration will be combined with our Reading Night on April 16th at 5:30 in the cafeteria. Please save this date!

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,
Ms. Spivey
