Fire Safety Week

Three members of the Hay Springs Volunteer Fire Department took time out of their day to meet with elementary students for Fire Safety Week. Craig Housh, Matt Anderson, and Terry Bronson talked with students about the importance of knowing what to do in case of a fire. Please review your family’s plan with your child including: a safe meeting location, how to call 911, knowing their home address, and having a safe exit out of the house.

Flexible Seating

Second Grade teacher Mrs. Vander May signed her class up for a Donors Choose project asking for donations for flexible seating. Last week the donations were met including a donation of magazine and box tops fundraising. The second grade classroom has a complete set of unique seats for each student to use! Using these different types of seats we hope to gain muscle strength and balance, and have the ability to let their little bodies wiggle while focusing. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped fund-raise!

2nd Grade Post Office Field Trip

Second grade asked for a Scholastic book sponsor to provide $9 for each student to receive a dollar book each month for the rest of the year.¬† We had an overwhelming group of sponsors from Hay Springs, Nebraska to Oklahoma! So we practiced our friendly letters, wrote “thank you” letters, took a class picture of everyone with their new books, and finally made an exciting trip to the post office to stamp, send, and sort our letters as we learned how postal workers are community helpers! We also found our personal mailboxes from the postal worker side!
