We hope summer fun is in full gear for all of our Hermes families!  Here are some updates from our principal, Mr. Dart.

On Tuesday, July 25th, Hermes will be hosting a Transportation Meeting at 10 am for parents wanting to learn about the new service for 2017-18. The meeting will be in the WHITE CENTER. Information will include how the program will work and who will be impacted. Parents can ask questions at the meeting as well.

On Friday, July 28th, Hermes will be having Math Adventures at Phillip’s Park from 12:30 pm until 1:30 pm, Mr. Dart and staff will be challenging students with math related activities, like Scavenger Hunts, Relay Races, and more. It is fun for the whole family! Parents need to be with their children during the event. We will meet near the RED Shelter on the PARK side of Phillip’s Park.

Hermes Student of the Year Rings in Summer Break!

Hermes students celebrated the last day of school on Tuesday, June 6th.  In a time honored Hermes tradition, one 5th grade student was chosen as Student of the Year.  Every year, each 5th grade classroom nominates two Student of the Year candidates.  These nominations come from teachers, fellow classmates, and a written essay project.  This year, the 5th grade had ten candidates, who then went on to create portfolios of their achievemnts during their time in elementary school.  These portfolios are scored by various administrators and staff members.  The Student of the Year is then announced at very special 5th grade awards ceremony on the last day of school.

The Student of the Year has a very special job on the last day.  They ring the large bell at the front of the school to signal that school is out and summer has begun!  Attached is a picture of this year's winner, Ayessa, ringing the bell as her mother proudly looks on.  

Happy Summer, Panthers!  We hope you enjoy time with your friends and family!  We look forward to seeing you again in August.
