Dear HSE Families,

It is hard to believe it is already Spring Break – a week when we will get to enjoy a bit of time to rest and recharge. After that, it is back to work to finish this year strong! We have much to do and, as always, your involvement is needed.

The months of April and May mark the beginning to the end-of-year STAAR testing window.  We will start administering STAAR in April. This testing window will run through mid-May. The full schedule can be found on our online calendar and it will also be posted on Facebook, Instagram, and in the Tiger Tribune. It is very important that your students be at school and on time on STAAR testing days. Past experience has shown that students who take the assessments with their class perform at a higher level than those who take a make-up assessment at a different time.  If you need to schedule a medical appointment for your child in the next couple of months, be sure to check with your child’s teacher to find out what days to avoid when scheduling the appointment.

Some campus upgrades are planned during the break. To ensure HSE is completely safe, secure, and is the best place for learning, the following improvements will be made to our school:

  • Three classrooms will be expanded. Each will be gaining around 200 sq ft additional room to make sure our students and teachers have enough space for learning.
  • 20 new speed bumps will be added to our parking lot. 
  • New TVs will be installed in some classrooms.
  • Cafeteria food serving area will be renovated.

I also want to share more exciting news. We will soon begin the process of expanding all of the middle school classrooms. The plan is to begin construction the first week of summer break. Our goal is getting all new classrooms ready before August 1st.

We love having you visit and take part in what we do. Our HSE community is a wonderful place to be and, as a team, we continue to work hard to stay the BEST! We are anchoring excellence in a safe harbor for learning and riding the “Waves of Success”! 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
