From the Principal

 
 
HES is certainly a Place for Great Beginnings. I have witnessed first-hand the strength of our learning community. I measure this strength by the presence of highly professional and caring faculty and staff, parents who are greatly involved and enthusiastic children who come to school every day with a natural curiosity for learning. The HES community welcomes a strong home-school connection because hand in hand we can accomplish great things for our children. Have a fantastic year!
