Parents, just a friendly reminder! These snack & drink items we hope to have tomorrow or Thursday for students Preschool-5th grade; see the photo for what each grade can bring to their teacher!

We have big changes right around the corner that will affect our dismissal process, school masses and P.E. classes! Due to IHM Church construction, starting Monday, January 29th our school Gym will be the temporary location of IHM Church services, and dismissal will all run through the Activity Center. Please see today's newsletter for all of those details since this will affect all HFE families!!! School masses on Tuesday/Thursday mornings will all be celebrated in the Gym starting this same date, lasting through February and most of March. IHM hopes to be moved back over to the church using their basement for masses by Easter, but this is all tentative and subject to change! P.E. classes will run in the Activity Center and blacktop outside when the weather allows it. We will keep our parents posted if anything changes. Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility as we navigate these changes during the church renovations!
We'd love to "SEA" you at the Book Fair during the Chili Supper! Orders can even be placed online during Catholic Schools Week! Students can also shop for items all during that week at their normal scheduled library times! It's going to be another great Book Fair!

There is no school today, 1/15 due to Teacher Inservice. Stay warm!!
The PIGS are officially here and open for business! This year, each grade is combined together in one pig, such as KA and KB are combined into one Kindergarten pig, and all donations for a grade level will be tallied together for those students to earn incentives together! KinderPrep will be combined with PK3/PK4! Pigs will remain on this table outside of the school office and students can bring coins, cash or check from home, or parents are welcome to stop by and "feed" the pigs of their choice! Pigs are brought inside and locked up after dismissal! You can stop by the Gym at the Chili Supper to feed the pigs, or donate from the convenience of your own phones! Each grade's pig will be available on the handy Silent Auction link that will be sent out right before Chili Supper weekend, so even loved ones from afar can donate to pigs or bid on great auction items! All donations go to the operating budget of HFE and help our school in such a huge way!!
