There will be a PTA meeting at 6:30 p.m. before the performance begins.  The students have worked really hard and put in many hours of practice.  What a great night to get into the holiday spirit!

Handwritten We Believe in making a difference

As the holidays are fast approaching, we would like to remind everyone about doing the volunteer registration.  With our upcoming classroom parties you MUST have a background check in order to attend the party in your child’s classroom.  It usually takes at least a week for it to be cleared.

We realize volunteers are an integral part of our school program.  Volunteers serve as a liaison between the home, school, and community and provide valuable support for all students.  We encourage all interested parents/guardians to sign up as a volunteer in our school. 

Per district policy, ALL VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION PROCESS EACH SCHOOL YEAR.

Would you like to support the teachers in your child’s school? There is a great way to do this.  Teachers would like to provide the latest technology for their classes.  These funds get paid for by generous donations from the community including parents and businesses.  Some of our teachers at E. Melvin Honeycutt Elementary would like their grants funded.  Below are the current grants written that need funding:
