Sensational September Happenings!

HHIE is off to a great start! We had a full house during our Back-To-School and Meet and Greet Events! We also held our first Student Improvement Council meeting and had a great turnout. PTO will be rescheduled due to an early release day. Thank you to all the parents and community members that made these such great nights!

MAP testing (math and ELA) and beginning-of-year reading assessments are almost complete. You will receive information about both of these assessments at your parent conferences in October and with Q1 Report Cards.

Due to Hurricane Irma, we have had to change some of this month’s activities. Progress Reports will now go home September 22nd instead of the 15th.  Our ESOL night, which was planned for the 14th was canceled and will be rescheduled for a later date.

HHIE Students took ACTION this month by writing letters to Hurricane Matthew victims of Houston and for our First Responders on the island helping our own community members with Hurricane Irma. Watch our students on the news by clicking HERE.

Your child(ren) will be receiving CLUBS brochures this week. This will give your child(ren) a chance to investigate other areas of interest or curiosity! Please sign up as quickly as possible as spaces are limited. We have a menu of offerings including: Crochet Club, Language Lab, Science Club, Coding/Gaming, Farmer’s Club, Chinese Chess Club, Cheer Club and Chinese Peking Opera Club. Fifth grade students will be receiving information about their upcoming overnight environmental education trip to Barrier Island in Charleston in January! Be on the lookout for that!

Please don’t forget to watch our daily news program, the Otter Morning News on Facebook and accessible on the HHIE website, under the Students tab. Lots of good information and even a few funny BLOOPERS!!!

Thank you for all of your support!
