We are thrilled to partner with Champions, an accredited program with more than 30 years of experience and service. Students will be given the opportunities to participate in creative art, literacy, STEM, homework support, and more. Breakfast will be provided in the morning and snacks in the afternoon. I have attached a letter providing specific information such as registration, options, and the cost to attend the program. The following links explain the program much more.

    We utilize many tech tools to aid in the learning process at HES, such as:

    • Dreambox
    • Compass Learning
    • NWEA
    • MobyMax
    • iXL

    Students do not take ChromeBooks home; instead, they pick them up each morning and return them each afternoon

    HES is very fortunate to be able to provide each student with a ChromeBook (computer) that they carry with them throughout each school day
