Message from the Principal
Greetings HKTE Family,
I am extremely excited to be returning to HKTE School family and community. It is my pleasure to serve as your school leader. I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. We have an exciting school year ahead of us, and we can’t wait to begin!
HKTE school’s theme is “Promoting Excellence While Building Strong Foundations”. Our focus will be students are our priority and academic excellence every day in a safe, nurturing and student centered learning environment. HKTE faculty and staff will also sustain a culture of high expectations of our students, establishment of community partnerships and parental involvement.
I believe in our students and will make every effort to help them achieve academically and socially this school year. Our students will take the HKTE Student Pledge. "Today I will behave in such a way that makes my parents, my teacher and community proud. I will learn today because I can learn."
We believe it is important for families and schools to work together for the success of our students. I encourage parents to be active in school activities and volunteer when possible.
I also invite you to be a part of HKTE School Improvement Council (SIC) and PTSO. Please sign up during Student Teacher Meet and Greet August 11, 2016. Also, we will have Box Tops for Education Program. So please save your box tops and send them to school with your child. Additional information is posted on the school's web page.
Together, we can make a difference in the educational lives of our students!
Again, I’m excited to serve as your principal and I look forward to working with each of you and the community as we continue to build upon the successes and the uniqueness of HKTE.
Gloria D. Jenkins
