    "Academics is top notch! My son is in kindergarten and he has learned so much this year. I would like to see more school spirit though. What happened to spirit week? A formal kindergarten ceremony? The End-of-the-year music show was lacking enthusiasm, coordination and pride. Some of the students were dressed in shorts and a t -shirt, one other student was wearing flip flops. Performance and singing go hand in hand and having all the kids stand on bleachers and just sing is a bit blah. Kindergarteners deserve a formal ceremony not in the classrooms. the students are deserving of a well put together event. Even if it's just a big one at the end of the year. A simple letter home with an enforced dress code would have made a difference. Feeling a bit discouraged:("

    "Yes, the PTA works hard to raise funds for the school and pay for things that were cut in the budget. They are a group of stay-at-home moms with the time to do so. The school is awesome with fabulous teachers who educate and love your children. The administration is first class and they truly care for the children. However, I too agree the PTA is rude, unprofessional and act like an extremely tight knit click of high school girls. Give a non PTA parent a chance, you might find them kind and helpful as well."

    "Hawkes Bluff Elementary is an amazing school. Originally I considered placing my children into a private school, but was urged to check out HBE. 8 years later, not only have I saved high tuition fees, but I feel my children have received more services and have been challenged academically! Most of the staff has been part of HBE for 10+ years and don't seem to ever want to leave. Having a veteran staff really says something about a school! The staff truly loves and cares for the students. Communication to the staff is welcomed and easy! As far as the PTA, they are a bunch of hard working VOLUNTEERS! The PTA Board supports the school wholeheartedly, and it saddens me to read the mean comments about a group of ladies whom put all of the HBE student body first! The family events and fundraisers are what the children will remember most, not how much they raised, but how much fun they had helping their community and being an active citizen! "Clicks" are only what they seem, and I am sure the PTA would welcome any help from any volunteer."

    "HBE rocks! From the teachers to the kids, this is a great school! EVERYONE is on board to make this the best school around! There's a few negative comments about the PTA, but the truth is HBE's PTA is extremely active, they do great things for our school that due to budget cuts the school would not be able to afford and as a parent what I appreciate most is the amazing experience & happy memories of their Elementary school! The Fall Festival & Food truck event was a blast! Keep the fun family times coming!"
