Thank you for successful teacher appreciation dinners

Many thanks to all who contributed to the HES and Bromfield Teacher Appreciation Dinners! There was a wonderful selection of food and drink plus many hands to help set up and clean up. Thank you for helping to make this a welcome break for all faculty and staff during a busy day of conferences!

Coordinator needed to maintain HES holiday book gift program

Over the past 11 years, the PTO has collected donations from HES families to purchase Barnes & Noble gift cards for the HES teachers for holiday gifts.

The Holiday Book Fund was developed as a means to recognize our teachers on a school-wide basis in the spirit of the season. We are in need of a new volunteer to take responsibility for this wonderful program in order to continue this tradition.

The letter to parents as well as classroom holiday gift bags are ready-to-go and the prior coordinator will provide guidance and answer any questions. If interested, please contact Janice Kennedy at by Tuesday, Dec. 10. Thank you for your support!
