Greetings Titan family,
Before I share some upcoming event information, I have exciting news to share about our staff.
As you are probably aware, we have been searching for a new Music teacher and a new 4K teacher. Today, I am pleased to announce the hiring of two new teachers. Please join me in welcoming Ms. Bernadine (Bernie) Henderson (Music) and Ms. Ada Wicks (4K).
Bernie comes to HTES with over 30 years of experience in teaching and composing music. Her background includes teaching positions at various schools, including Harare International School. In addition, she has led and directed numerous music festivals, concerts, and events. These include:
- The Harare International Festival of the Arts, Music, and Stage (HIFA)
- The Harare Jazz Festival
- The Italian Jazz Festival
- The Zimbabwe Combined School International Jazz Festival
Ada joins HTES with many years of experience working with children of all ages. This includes teaching duties in both the Nacogdoches Independent School District and the Aldine Independent School District. Her work also includes experience in youth advocacy and adoption services.
Bernie and Ada will officially begin their orientation and transition on Friday, October 1.
Here are some other items to note this week:
- Individual School Pictures (Chapel Uniform) is October 5
- Pet Blessing Day (details coming soon) is October 6
- Fall Break (no school, campus closed) is October 15-18
- Red Ribbon/Spirit Week (details TBA) is October 25-29

Related to the Halloween Festivities on October 29, we will need volunteers to help with class parties and sponsoring grade level treat tables. Please contact Ms. Escalante ([email protected]) if you are interested in volunteering.
Thank you for your support and partnership.
It’s a great time to be a Titan,
