Month: September 2014

Parent Involvement is Key to Success

It used to be that kids went to school, dads worked and moms stayed at home. Once in a while, mom might bake cupcakes for a school party, but she probably didn’t attend it. Parents didn’t decorate doors and bulletin boards, serve on committees or volunteer in the classroom. MAYBE they helped with homework; but even that used to be way less common. Homework was the child’s responsibility.

A special letter to HES Williams Parents from Superintendent

Dear Parents,

We know you have options when it comes to your child’s education, and I want to thank you for partnering with us. We truly value our students and parents and believe that all children have the ability to be successful both in and outside our school.

Get ready for Galileo Benchmarks September 15-19

Can you believe we are already into our second month of school? As the saying goes, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” Now that we are entering September, we are excited to start the first round of Galileo Benchmarks for 2nd to 8th grade. This assessment system supports an array of technology-based instruction, educator effectiveness, and easy-to-learn tools that implement Common Core Standards. It is designed to benefit all students in achievement and help our teachers successfully and innovatively educate their students.
