Dear HES families,                                                                           


It’s hard to believe that August is here and the school year is right around the corner.  I hope this newsletter finds you relaxing with family and friends as you enjoy the last few weeks of summer.

As your principal, I feel so honored and excited to be the leader of such a wonderful building with a rich tradition of academic excellence.  The faculty and staff are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new second graders as well as our returning students.  The building is in fabulous condition as our custodial staff has been working tirelessly to prepare for opening day on September 6th. 

During this summer vacation, we hope that your children have been reading wonderful books and practicing their basic math facts so we can hit the ground running in September.  Mrs. O’Hara and I have seen plenty of bright smiles during the Summer Play School, which was held in our building, and we are excited about what lies ahead for our students at HES. 

We are optimistic that you will feel energized by the changes of a new class of students, a new grade level, or for some of you, a new school.  Our school year begins with fresh ideas, exhilarating plans and a great anticipation for increased academic rigor. 

The entire staff at HES is confident that this coming year will be filled with powerful and rewarding experiences.  Enjoy the remainder of summer, and I look forward to seeing you in September.

I would like to extend an invitation to attend our “Meet the Principal” breakfast scheduled for Monday, August 29th from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. in the Hewlett Elementary courtyard.  If available, please bring the family, have a bite to eat, and let’s get acquainted.   

With warm anticipation,

Mr. Christopher Uccellini, Principal
