Online Scholastic Book Fair Until October 31st
Please visit our Book Fair homepage for a link to our Online Book Fair, which will be open until Friday October 31st. If you couldn't find books at the Book Fair, use this site and have the books delivered to HES without any shipping and handling fees. This is a great way to order some Christmas presents for your children. If you want to order some for gifts, please send me an email so that I am aware and I can contact you when the books are delivered.

SMCPS is fortunate to have volunteers in our schools and offices. These individuals, at the request of the school system and under the direct supervision of a principal/site administrator or designated staff, contribute to student success and reinforce the values of education. All volunteers must complete the SMCPS Volunteer Application process. All volunteers working with children at HES should attend the Volunteer Orientation Training annually prior to volunteering in the school. The Volunteer Training will be offered at HES on the following dates this school year:
All trainings will begin promptly at 9:30 am.
Message from the Principal
We are excited about the beginning of a new school year. Our new parent handbook includes our vision and goals of partnership, safe and orderly school environment, and achievement. It also includes information on school policies and procedures. We hope that you will find it helpful as a reference for the questions you have now and will have throughout the year. Please become familiar with its contents and complete and return the colored copies of the current information sheet and the Use of Students in Public Information Programs (located at the end of this packet) as quickly as possible.
