Principal's Message

Welcome to Hallettsville Elementary School. My name is Trina Patek and I am excited to serve as the elementary principal for the 2018-2019 school year. My enthusiasm for education and passion for supporting students to reach their highest potential have been shaped over the past 27 years as an elementary teacher, school counselor and principal. In each of these roles, I have worked to ensure that all students thrive and achieve academic and social-emotional success.


Student success is our utmost goal at HES and we are dedicated to utilizing research-based best practices for each student to reach their full potential. Hallettsville Elementary encourages family involvement and hopes to build educational partnerships with you. By working together, we can help each student achieve an excellent education in a safe and positive environment. Please join us and share your talents in the classroom and throughout our school community. Our Student /Parent Handbook will provide you with useful information and should answer questions about our school, the district and important policies.



Warm Regards,

Trina S. Patek
