Recess Aide Vacancy

One of our beloved Recess Aides, Mrs. Schultz, will be starting a new position soon. We are sad to see her go and will miss her! Therefore, we currently have a 3.75 Hour Recess Aide position available at Herbison Woods. This position is from 10:05-1:50 each day and 9:45-11:45am on half/CLT days. We are looking for a positive and hard-working person to join our team! Please apply here, if you are interested! 

Spring Benchmark Data Reports

You can expect to find your student’s progress reports for NWEA and Acadience to come home on Friday, May 19, 2023. These reports include information on how your student has grown since the start of the year.

Library Corner

Summer is almost!

As we wind down library for the year I am asking that all books be returned by Friday, May 26. I will be sending out reminders the week before with what books your student may have out and again the week after so all books can be returned before summer break. 

Don't forget to follow the HW library on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to find out what's going on, upcoming events, book recommendations, and much.
