  • I am a resident parent at HEHES. I come to HEH every day. Every morning rain, freezing or hot, the teachers line up from the entrance through the hallways, from the bus drop, through the cafeteria, greeting and directing the pupils as they stream in. I have never seen a frown on any of these teachers' faces. They have time for a hug with any pupil, who seems a little preoccupied; they have time for every parent, who walks in with a child.
    I hear a call for the pledge of allegiance to the Flag of the USA, I hear a call for words of wisdom and a call for reflection, and finally an admonishment for Teachers and Students to have good day. What a neat, seamless family, what a united dedication to the education of the whole child.
    As students settle down to learning, I volunteer to work in a class here and there. The teachers are focused, they are on task and they are handling every challenge, typical of a room full of kids, curious about the world. From, the "Don't touch me! I have no pencil. May I use the restroom?" And many more bustling, the teachers stay in charge. Ms Fortier, Ms Cody and the whole crew in Pre-K special Ed. are great, so are Ms Richards, Ms Williams, Ms Johnson and Dr. Kengwa. They are many other great teachers that I have not met.
    I visit the Media center. It is like non I have ever seen. It is like a bee hive or an ant hill, bustling with activity. It is not just a room, where students come to check out books, it is a reinforcement center. The librarians are teaching, picking up from where the teacher left as well as suggesting and assisting students, and teachers, alike, to what reading materials are appropriate for what learning level. The librarians also take the time to read favorite works to the students. Ms. Bell and Dernard are doing a great job.
    HEH has a great parent school liaison, Ms Creech. God endowed her with the appropriate tool for the job, That Great Smile. If you meet Ms. Creech, you have met the spirit of HEH. She is kind and approachable. She loves her job and she does it well.
    The front desk is great. Ms. Phillips is always on task. She seems to know every student by name. She has a great smile and incising eyes, which carry a warning "don't let the smile fool you" as she welcomes guests. She is very alert and well informed. The school nurse and the admissions clerk are very resourceful.
    The Principal, Dr. Subblet and Vice Principal Ms. Bulluck are the most serious administrators I am yet to meet. They are so engrossed in their work that they forget to smile, at all. A smile is the only weapon given to people kind that disarms without firing a short. They are great leaders, you don't have such dedicated workers and such a great plant, without great leadership.

    Thanks Hamilton E. Holmes Family for having me. Even though I'll not be with you next semester, I promise to come back and give you a Papa John’s Pizza party.

  • I attended Hamilton E. Holmes for 5 years I had ups and downs but overall it was a pretty good school under Mr. King's administration.I would not take my child there if I where you because he/she might not learn too much.

  • My two sons are in the first grade. Ms. Weaver is an exceptional and encouraging blessing to my family. Ms. Norris is simply an inspiration to be the best despite all circumstances. My kids will definitely complete their elementary years at this school. God Bless the entire staff!
