Math Night is set for Wednesday, March 21st from 3:30 - 5:00 in the Auditorium. Math Night is a fun event for kids in elementary school and their parents.

SGC Election Period
It is time for the election of new members to our School Governance Council! The School Governance Council (SGC) has one parent/guardian position open for election. Parents or guardians of students who will be attending our school during both the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years are eligible to run for parent/guardian SGC positions.
Our School Governance Council (SGC) plays a critical role in the success of our school. The SGC works with school leadership and the community to help determine the long-term direction of the school, design innovative solutions to increase academic achievement, and serve as school ambassadors to the local community. Specifically, the School Governance Council has the following powers:
- Create, approve, and monitor the implementation of the school strategic plan
- Manage the Request for Flexibility process
- Approve the annual budget recommendations and related allocations
- Participate in the hiring of the principal, in the case of a vacancy
- Provide annual feedback to the Area Superintendent on principal performance
If you are interested in running for the School Governance Council, please complete and submit a Parent/Guardian Candidate Declaration Form. Forms can be found on the district website, http://www.fultonschools.org/en/about/charter/Pages/electionresources.aspx
We are very excited about the work of our SGC. The Candidate Declaration ends February 23rd and voting in the SGC occurs from March 19th -23rd .

Georgia Parent Survey
Every year, the state rates schools based on several data points. One of these data points is a survey that all staff, students, and parents complete about our school. You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone or tablet. If you do not have access to the Internet, you are welcome to take the survey at HES. We encourage all parents to take the survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. No parent participation or low parent participation will negatively impact our school's School Climate Star Rating from the state. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Results from the survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. We greatly appreciate your time and effort!

Cada año, el estado clasifica las escuelas basándose en varios puntos de datos. Uno de estos puntos de datos es una encuesta que todo el personal, estudiantes y padres completan acerca de nuestra escuela. Usted puede completar la encuesta usando su computadora personal, smartphone o tableta. Si usted no tiene acceso a Internet, le invitamos a tomar la encuesta en HES. Animamos a todos los padres a tomar la encuesta porque los datos serán utilizados como parte del cálculo de la calificación de estrellas del clima escolar. Ninguna participación de los padres o participación de padres bajos afectará negativamente la calificación de estrellas del clima escolar de nuestra escuela del estado. Las respuestas de la encuesta son anónimas y se someterán directamente al Departamento de Educación de Georgia para su análisis. Los resultados de la encuesta no estarán disponibles para el público y no se publicarán en línea. ¡ Agradecemos mucho su tiempo y esfuerzo!

Morning Arrival & Afternoon Dismissal
Parents, during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal, parents are not allowed to park in local areas, walk to the school, and pick up their child(ren). This is a major hazard as buses are in the front of the school and we do not want to place any family at risk of danger by a motor vehicle. Therefore, if you elect to pick up your child via car, please obtain a car pool number and join us in car pool in the morning and afternoon.
