HLES students, staff and friends celebrated the partnership with Office Depot on Friday. Superintendent Ragsdale, David Bleisch, Office Depot’s Chief Legal Officer and Board Member David Morgan were among our distinguished guests. We danced, cheered and celebrated because Office Depot selected HLES as one of only 7 schools in the nation to partner with as a Start Proud School. Office Depot donated 1,000 backpacks stuffed with supplies and a $20 gift card to our school! Each and every student received a backpack on Friday. Office Depot also donated 6 pallets of supplies to our teachers and a $1,000 teacher gift pack to Ms. Lashonda Tutt! Hats off to Andrew, Alex, Andrea and the entire Office Depot crew for an amazing day and partnership!
