Dear Parents and Visitors of Herndon Elementary,
The safety and security of our students, staff, and all those who are in Herndon Elementary during school hours is of utmost importance. If you are planning to visit HES and have not registered in our Visitor Management System, please bring your license or ID and plan on an extra couple of minutes to get registered.
Once you are registered, checking in and out is a breeze and very quick each time you come. Thank you.4th Grade Young Scholars are collecting water bottles
The Young Scholars 4th graders will be building a greenhouse with recycled plastic bottles in the new year. We need your help to collect as many bottles as we can get! Bring any size or color plastic bottles to school and put them in the box outside the cafeteria. Put your recycling to good use and help us build a new green house for the HES Garden Grow garden. Thank you!DONATIONS of used Clean Clothing Needed at Herndon Elementary
Are you cleaning out your children's closets? Please consider donating used, clean, children's clothing such as shirts and elastic pants or leggings to HES. We are in need of boys' and girls' clothing, especially the younger grades. Thank you so much!PTA News... Silent but Chic Auction
Is there ever a good use for a velvet tablecloth? How big is too big when it comes to bows on gift baskets wrapped in cellophane? What kind of music inspires people to forget about their family budget? If you have opinions on any of these questions, we want you to join our team organizing the Silent Auction fundraiser. We want to make a classy, relaxed affair where parents can enjoy themselves, but we need volunteers to help us achieve that. If you have any insights or are willing to help, contact email@example.com.Bring On the Box Tops
After all the grocery shopping this holiday season, don’t forget to cut out and send in any clip-able Box Tops you find! These little elves are working hard sorting and counting them for us, so we can earn money for HES. If you find labels that say "SCAN,” be sure to scan your receipt in the BoxTops app within two weeks of purchase. Go to www.btfe.com if you need more information about how to download the app and scan receipts.
