Michigan Festival - A Day of Fun and Learning!

Each year at HSE, we take a day to do some learning on a particular theme.  This year's theme was Michigan!  All students were able to participate in a Michigan assembly, a Motown assembly, and a car show.  Students in second through fifth grades also were given the chance to choose two sessions from among thirteen different sessions offered by volunteers and HSE staff members.  Check them out below!  Also, click here to see some great pictures from our fun day!
