Principal's Message for the week of 11.13.17

Announcements for the Week of November 13, 2017


Good Morning, this is Jessica Burroughs the Principal of Harkers Island with the announcements for the coming weeks. This announcement can also be located on the school website on the main page.


Week Events:

For the week of November 13th:

  • There are no significant events for this week.

For the week of November 20th:

  • Wednesday the 22nd is a half day for students, with the student day ending at 12:00
  • Thursday – Friday there is no school due to the holiday


Art Work:

Ms. Bryant, our art teacher, has been hanging student art work around the county.  Be sure to check it out at the SECU in Beaufort and the Community Theater in Morehead.


Cell Phones

Cell phones are no longer allowed to be out of the backpack at school.  This is in line with the policy and practices of all of our surrounding schools.  Students with a cell phone out the first time will receive a warning.  The second time, the phone will be confiscated by the staff member to be picked up in the main office by a parent.


Collecting Clothing

We are collecting new packages of underwear for our kindergarten age and first grade age students as well as gently used shirts and shorts/pants.  These items will be used for emergency purposes when students have an accident and we cannot get ahold of a parent.  We are also collecting baby wipes.  Please drop off donations in the main office.

Decoy Festival

Preparations have begun for the Decoy Festival (December 2nd and 3rd).  As a reminder, Harkers Island ES has a half day for school on Friday the 1st because the school building and staff will be involved in the decoy festival.  Duck Decoy raffle tickets and a letter have been sent home this week.


Follow HIES on Twitter @HIESPrincipal and/or on our main website.


If you have any questions please call the Front Desk at 252-728-3295. This message has been posted on the school website for your reference.


Our Harkers Island Students Shine Bright every day and Light the Way!  Join us in celebrating their daily and weekly accomplishments.  Have a wonderful weekend!


Shine your light and make a positive impact on the world; there is nothing so honorable as helping improve the lives of others.”
