Books for Babies -  We are excited to announce that we are helping with the "Books for Babies" program!!  There are four bright green boxes located at HES waiting for new or gently used children's books that can be passed onto families with newborns in our HES community!  This has been a very successful program at HES and the PTO would like to continue this wonderful program! 
If you or your family and friends have books to donate please add them to our boxes and the PTO will do the rest of the work!  Interested in helping with this great program? Please let us know at friendsofhes@gmail.com Thank you!

School store is OPEN! The hours for school store are every Friday 7:15AM - 7:40AM. Come check it out - Many new items for sale! Prices range from .10 cents - $1.50. If you don't see items that you like, please let us know and we will try to accommodate you! Children do not have to participate in school store - it is strictly a "fun" store where kids have the option to shop.  If you are interested in helping with the store, please contact us at friendsofhes@gmail.com

We hope to see lots of new faces this year!  Many of our core group members have kids in the older grades who will soon be moving onto Hazen and will no longer be part of our group.  In order for our group to continue to enhance our children's learning, we need to have help, even if you can't make it to every meeting but want to be involved.  WE NEED YOU!
Please contact us by email:  friendsofhes@gmail.com with any questions or how you can help.

Why Should I Join the PTO? Friends of HES PTO offers an invaluable link between students, school staff, teachers and families, but without you and your support it would not be possible for the PTO to continue to sponsor events and provide much needed contributions to our school. 
• PTO offers parents the opportunity to make positive changes in the school. 
• PTO distributes information on a regular basis via Facebook, e-mails and website so that members can be informed of and responds to school issues and activities in a timely manner. 
• Joining the PTO shows an interest in your child's education and school activities, shows greater support for his/her teachers and school and improves the relationship between parents and school personnel. 
• Have fun! 
How Involved Do I Have To Be? You can be as involved as you want to be. We understand that people have very busy schedules and that time is precious. Therefore we appreciate any time you can spare. Volunteers are always needed to chair committees and work events but if you can’t find the time, we just appreciate your membership. We only ask that you join, receive email updates, and check out our website.
