Dear Hornets Nest Family, 

Students continue to work hard in school and I am very proud of them.

Education is the key to your child’s success.  We are very blessed to have a great team of teachers at Hornets Nest.  Please find the time to thank them for working hard in teaching your child everyday.  Make reading at least 30 minutes every night a priority!

If you come by to visit your child for lunch or volunteer in a classroom, please introduce yourself and tell me your child’s name. 


Every child, everyday, for a better tomorrow,

Victoria Hicks


Hornets Nest Essential 7

1.      Always keep your eyes on the person that is speaking.


2.      Always respond appropriately to others by saying thank you, speaking when spoken to, and talking in complete sentences. It is not respectful to smack your teeth, walk away, roll your eyes, or shrug your shoulders.


3.      Cheer on others who do something well.


4.      Surprise others with random acts of kindness and do not ask for a reward.


5.      Accept that everyone will make mistakes and bad choices-learn from them. Do not laugh or stare when others make mistakes or bad choices.


6.      You must complete homework every day and make every effort to be organized.


7.      Always be the best you can be.
