Parents and Community Members:
This year, our motto is 'Level Up!' We believe our students have untapped potential, and we plan to push them to grow in character, behavior, and academics.
We will continue to focus on embracing your child, building strong relationships, and having good old-fashioned fun! We are committed to keeping our students safe AND challenging them to reach their full potential (although we know there is no limit to potential!).
The HES staff teaches students to have a growth mindset. What is growth mindset? It is the belief that our brains can always grow. It is the belief that people aren't born with a "fixed" intelligence and, with effort, grit, and perseverance, we can grow our brains! AND with practice, practice, practice, and FEEDBACK!
During the summer, our entire faculty read 'The Wild Card,' to help us use our own talents to build engagement in the classroom for our students. We hope our children will wake up excited about going to school and have experiences in the classroom that transform them into lifelong learners.
In my 20 years in education, I have never worked with a more passionate, committed, and unique group of teachers! I am so proud to be the leader of HES and am committed to ensuring your child receives a high-quality education. I have an open-door policy, and hope to visit with you soon.
Thank you for your support, and as always, it is a great day to be a Titan!
