Welcome to Hoffmann Lane Elementary

Dear HLES Parents & Community,
 
I want to sincerely welcome you and your family to Hoffmann Lane Elementary. We are so happy to have you join our school family.
 
My husband, Brandon, and I are originally from Fredericksburg, Texas and are both educators.  We have two boys, Braydon and Bryson, who are active in school and sports.   When you add two dogs, Marley and Madchen, into the mix, we manage to stay pretty busy.
 
I have been in education for 19 years and am beginning my 5th year at HLES. Our teachers and staff are both skillful and compassionate.  We constantly strive to foster well-balanced students.  They participate in valuable instructional experiences as well as creative fine arts and character activities.
 
We have a very strong PTA program and throughout the year we have multiple opportunities for parents to volunteer at our school.  We believe the partnership between parents and our school family is paramount to the success of our HLES Leopards! 
  
Please stop by or give me a call if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to another great year! 
Leslie Durst, Principal

Chess Champions Announced from District's First Tournament

The Canyon Lake High School cafeteria was packed with 300 participants anxiously waiting to play chess on a Saturday in January. The pawns, the rooks, the bishops, the queens and, of course, the kings were lined up neatly in rows ready for the action. This was the district's first chess tournament of the year and here are the results.
