The Annual Field Days went off fabulously. We were so lucky that the weather held out for us. The children had a great time playing games such as Relay Races; Kickball; Parachute; Balloon Walk and everyone's favorite on a hot day, Leaky Pipes. There were many other games as well. Thanks to Ms. Burleson, the PE teacher, and the many parent volunteers who made these days possible for the students.
We also had an "End of Year" barbecue for all students and staff. Thanks to Mrs. Saari and all the volunteers who came to help. Thanks also to Mrs. Mahoney at the New Ipswich Market for her assistance in purchasing the hot dogs and rolls as well as her donation of watermelon and the Frito Lay company for donating the chips. This was a great way to end another successful year at HHES!
Last but certainly not least, the school community gave a sendoff to the fourth graders leaving us and going onto Boynton. This is a tradition at HHES - all the students line the hallway and staircase and clap as the 4th graders walk through. We wish them the best of luck in their new educational endeavors.
The school community is thankful to all who make the these events possible and look forward to the new school year!
During the school year each grade level nominates two students to be the Student of the Month. They make posters with an acronym of the student's name with their best qualities and post in the grade level pod. At the end of the year, Mrs. Saari presents those students with a medal to acknowledge this achievement. Congratulations to all! Select link to view pictures.
The HHES DI team competed at the GLOBAL competition in Tennessee and they did quite well. They placed 12th out of 94 teams. Way to go! Congratulations!
The Destination Imagination Global Competition was held on the campus of the University of Tennessee. Some stats: 8,000 students; 15+ countries; more than 45+ states competed with 17,000 attendees. They had awesome educational exhibits and workshops for the students to attend when they weren't competing.
Thanks again to all those who donated to make this trip possible for the students.
