From the Principal

Welcome, Hephzibah Elementary, to the 2014-2015 school year! We are eagerly excited to have met so many new parents and students and look forward to forming positive relationships.

Staff members are rested and re-energized for another year of learning and growing alongside their students, and we hope you are as well. Several new staff members have joined us this year and they are doing a dynamic job. Our staff is focused and ready to meet the requirements for Georgia Common Core and the Georgia Milestone Test, which replaces the CRCT.

As always, we are here for you and your children and will do whatever it takes to see that they succeed in getting a quality education. We look forward to your continued support as we embark on the 2014-2015 Academic school Year!
