Good Evening Tomahawks!

Happy Sunday!! We did it! Last week of school….last Sunday message of the school year! So many wonderful things going on this week...please read your email carefully so you know where to be to celebrate the end of another successful year here at HES! If you haven’t updated your contact information in InfoSnap, make sure you do that. We will be sending out teacher placement information and so much more via email in early August! Stay connected to our website and our facebook page over the summer for important dates and information that you will need to be ready for 2018-2019!

I want keep you long tonight but I do want to take just a minute to thank you all for your support as I have transitioned into the role of your principal this year! I have been overwhelmed by your love, your trust, your support, and most importantly, your patience!

This week will be bittersweet as we say goodbye to many friends that are transitioning to Indian Land in August. I am so sad to see you go but so excited for the adventures your are going to have with our friends at ILE. As our community grows together, the rich opportunities for our kids in and out of the classroom are growing as well and I know that next year is going to be the best year ever for ALL of us!

We are honored to be a part of the Indian Land Community and I am confident that we are building tomorrow’s future with love, learning and leadership. It is my pleasure to remind you for one last time this year to:

Love life. play hard. game on.

Have a great summer Tomahawks!!

Ms. Dalton


ALL UNUSED STUDENT MEDICATION NEEDS TO BE PICKED UP BY AN ADULT BY THE END OF THE DAY ON FRIDAY, MAY 25! If your student has any medication in the Nurse’s office, it must be picked up by an adult. We are unable to send any medications home with students for safety reasons. Medications will not be held over the summer, so medicine that is not picked up will be discarded. If you have any questions, contact Nurse Ann at 803-396-3759.

Please make sure your child’s negative lunch balances have been paid as we roll into the end of the year festivities of field trips and field days. All negative balances must be paid in order for your child to participate in any school related activities or programs. You can check your child’s lunch balance by logging onto your powerschool account. On a desktop, you can find the lunch balance on the left hand side, close to the bottom. On the app, scroll down on the dashboard and you will see ‘Meal Balance”.
