Welcome to the HI-Fives!

At HIES, each day is packed with activity, from the Primary School all the way to the Upper School. To highlight some of the exciting happenings and accomplishments that take place each week at The 805, Paul Barton, Head of School, created the weekly newsletter known as HI-Fives! Each week’s installment features five (or more) snapshots into the life of our HIES community members, from an exciting fine arts performance, to a special moment in the Kindergarten classroom to an exciting athletic win. HI-Fives are how we celebrate the diverse and unique interests and talents of our students, faculty and staff. If you want to learn more about what life is like at Holy Innocents’, this HI-Fives archive is a great place to start.

Kindergarten Class Celebrates 'Moving Up' to Lower School

Our Kindergarten students are officially off to first-grade! On Monday, May 20, the Kindergarten class celebrated their graduation from the Primary School and "moving up" to Lower School. After crossing the stage to receive their "t-shirt diplomas," the students performed songs for their families in attendance. Then, the students paraded through their new home: the first-grade hallway!
