CMS Bond Info: Invest Today.  Build Tomorrow.  
How can we make Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, already a great district, even better?  We can make sure we provide every student with the learning environments needed to acquire 21st-century skills – and that's why we've got a $922 million bond request on the ballot for November 7, 2017. We want to ensure that you learn about the bond, why they are needed and how they would be used.  Please visit the link below for answers to frequently asked questions!

Please see pictures below of the great things happening @ HGES:

Our spring Girls on the Run Team successfully completed their 5K race on May 6th!  In addition to their coaches, we also had several staff members come ​out to cheer them on in their race!

Our Kindergarten students took a field trip to Hickory Grove Methodist Church to sing for some of their members.  The Hickory Grove Methodist Church is a strong community partner for our school, and our students were excited to show their appreciation through a musical performance!

Our Girls on the Run Club had a special visit from Stephanie Ready.  Ms. Ready is an announcer for the​ Charlotte Hornets and also is the first female coach of a men's professional basketball team.  


We held our very first Father-Daughter Dance on March 3rd and just like our Mother-Son Dance, it was a huge success!  We had hundreds of dads, uncles, grandfathers and guardians show their support by attending the dance with their child.  All proceeds from the dance went to our PTO.  Take a look at some of our attendees & our staff volunteers!

In the spirit of our "no s​idelines" motto, Ms. Stewart, one of our front office secretaries, read to Ms. Keigher's kindergarten class.  Per our "no sidelines" motto, all staff members work together to best serve the students not matter what role they play in our school!

Fifth grade students created "graffiti" art for our school community, which contains positive and encouraging symbols and messages. This project was inspired by the recent difficult times in our city as well as across the United States.  The idea was to spread positivity and encouragement throughout our school in response.  Students were inspired by pop artist Keith Haring, who is famous for his "public art" in New York City.  He is known for his primitive, cartoon-like forms containing simple lines and bright colors. Students worked as teams to trace one another on large paper, and painted their own symbols and positive phrases.
