Pine Hills Nursery donated cabbage plants to our 3rd Grade students about 7 weeks ago. A representative from the nursery came back today to weigh the cabbages and determine who had grown the largest cabbage. Congratulations to the top 4 farmers! Thank you to all the students who participated and worked hard to grow and care for their cabbages. We would also like to thank Pine Hill Nursery for working with our students and helping them to learn about growing plants.
We are excited to announce that we will be doing a Countdown to Christmas with a 12 Days of Christmas special dress event. The dress days are designed to use things you already have at home or that can be easily made at home, and as always, participation is optional. Uniform bottoms will be required if not specified. Also all attire must follow Handbook Guidelines for Free Dress Days. We hope that you will join us as we countdown the days!

We had so much fun celebrating Red Ribbon Week at HNCE (October 22nd thru October 26th). This celebration was established as a national drug awareness campaign in 1988 after the death of Drug Enforcement Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena. This week represents taking a stand against alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. It also means that people all over the country are dedicating themselves to healthy lifestyles. We should exercise, eat right, get plenty of rest, and try to help our friends stay free of drugs.
Students “Put Drugs to Sleep” and were “Tackling Drugs” on some of the dress up days during this fun filled week.
HNCE students enjoyed being greeted Friday morning by the HHS football team members. Thank you for visiting our campus. We wish you good luck and hope you have an awesome season.
On May 15th, our 3rd through 5th Grade students who participate in the Link-Up Program were able to perform with Gulf Coast Symphony Youth Orchestra at the Performing Arts Center. These students did a wonderful job representing HNCE.
Thank you to The Biloxi Shuckers and Schooner for visiting us at HNCE! Our students have the opportunity to participate in the “Hit The Books” program. Students can read a required number of books to get a free ticket to The Biloxi Shuckers game!
