HWES PTA News & Events

The HWES PTA is busy getting ready for a great school year! 

School Beautification Day will be held on Monday, August 15. Visit the Sign Up Genius here for this event. We invite anyone who is available that day to come out and help us make the school look its best. Currently, we are getting all new sidewalks and a newly paved parking lot. On August 15, we will power wash, weed, mulch and plant new flowers. If you can come anytime between 2pm-7pm and help, it would be very much appreciated. Bring along any garden tools you have (shovels, gloves, wheelbarrows, power washer, etc.). See flyer below.

To welcome staff members new to HWES, we'll be hosting a breakfast on Thursday, August 11, and to welcome the entire HWES staff back, we'll be hosting a second breakfast on Monday, August 15. Visit these links below to volunteer:
