The Apex Fun Run is Coming!

Mark your calendars! The Apex Fun Run is coming soon! Our Apex fundraiser takes place October 30 through November 10, with the Fun Run kicking off the morning of November 10

Apex will have their very own "station" at Field Day, very similar to what Camp Gladiator had last year.  It will include an obstacle course plus a table and monitor set up with a 90-second video that explains what APEX does. The students will also have their kick-off pep rallies on Tuesday, Oct 31 during co-curr. 

Apex Fun Run is an interactive leadership program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership, good character and fitness. This year's theme is UNITED! Students will join the Apex Squad on an exciting journey as they learn what it truly means to unite as a team.

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week will be held during the week of October 23. Here's what's going on:

Monday, October 23 - "Use Your Head! Wear Red" - Students should wear red clothing to school. In addition, Black Creek Canine Detection will hold a student assembly in the morning. 
Tuesday, October 24 -  "Don’t get Twisted Up with Drugs" – Students may wear their clothes inside out.
Wednesday, October 25 – "Your Future is Key so Stay Drug Free" - Students may dress for your future career. This theme is meant to get your student to begin thinking of future possibilities and interest in careers. Costumes do not have to be elaborate or store bought, however, they do need to be realistic career options. Costumes such as a princess, pirate, Ninja Turtle, or Sponge Bob would be perfect for Halloween, but they are not appropriate for this day, because they do not reflect a career goal.  If your child does not wish to dress up that day, feel free to substitute a HLES spirit shirt.  
In addition, Marcene Weatherall, KISD Coordinator of Counseling Intervention, will host a parent only presentation about drug trends in Keller ISD from 12:00pm-1:00pm in the HLES Library.
Thursday, October 26 - "Your Future is Bright so Stay Drug Free"– Students may wear sunglasses to school .

Friday, October 27 - “Sock it to Drugs” – Students may wear crazy socks to school.

Picture Day Notes

​Picture Day was October 17. If your child was absent, our retake day is scheduled for November 30. If you weren't able to send in your pre-payment for a photo package, you can still order online at through this Thursday. Our school code is HLE17. After Thursday, you may still order online but you will be charged a $5.00 late fee and your picture package will be mailed to your home address.

NOTE: The class photo that was taken was done independently from Glamourcraft by our PTA Yearbook chairperson and is not available for purchase. Glamourcraft will be back in the spring for another round of individual student photos as well as a class photo that may be purchased at that time.

Field Day

Friday, October 27 is Field Day at HLES! Events will be held outdoors and students will participate in various team and individual events throughout the day (see map​). A hamburger/hot dog lunch was offered to students and parents for a fee, however, the deadline to order has passed so if you missed it, plan to pack a sack lunch that day.  Please refer to the letter​ that was sent home to parents for specific details.

Parents are encouraged to come out and support your kids but must sign in at the front office before proceeding to the field. 

PTA is also hosting a tailgate games hour from 2:00pm-3:00pm and needs 12 volunteers from each grade level.  Please consider signing up via the Sign Up Genius link​.
