Hephzibah Elementary's 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year
Mrs. Harman

From the Principal

Dear Parents,

Even though the weather keeps changing on us and the leaves are falling outside the classrooms, the academics here at Hephzibah Elementary are still at the forefront. The teachers and students have gotten into their routines and procedures and they are preparing for a successful year.

We have completed our first PAR Assessment and Universal Screeners and teachers are analyzing data in order to differentiate their instruction. Parents, you are encouraged to team with your child’s teacher and the school to ensure that your child makes academic gains.

Finally, I would like to thank the hundreds of parents who showed up for “Donuts for Dad” and “Muffins for Moms.” Both events showed how much you support your child and Hephzibah Elementary School.
