HFE’s Volunteer of the Year: Caroline Donohue
4/8/2018 9:30 pm
There are few parents at HFE who have been as consistently present as Caroline Donohue. Caroline has volunteered in virtually every capacity from room parent to helping the fifth grade fund raise for their class legacy gift. She has been the chairperson of our very popular International Day (Caroline’s passion) for several years and has chaperoned her two children’s field trips every year they were at HFE. As the signature on her email says ‘always with a smile,’ and that is how she spends her time at school. Caroline’s youngest child is in 5th grade this year. We will all miss her and her incredible dedication to our school.
Mural for HFE!
4/8/2018 8:41 pm
The Eagle Alliance, led by HFE parent Tracy Lurey and HFE art teacher Ms. Strom, has commissioned local artist Lela Brunet to paint a colorful, whimsical mural on the large concrete wall behind the school. So as not to take away from the Eagle Alliance donations made toward our existing academic programs and events, the money raised at the Parent Party auction will be used to fund the mural.
The students were able to vote on their favorite from several options presented by Lela. See the below rendering for the winner!
The wall will be primed by volunteers during Hands on HFE on April 21, and Lela will be painting in May.
