seated with hatParents and community members – Join us for a visit with Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States.  He will be arriving at the Hay Springs School Auditorium at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9, 2014.  Highlights of his visit include election highlights, inaugural speeches, and the Gettysburg address.

Just a taste of the presentation is this quote from his website: “As the 16th President, I was the first Republican, the first with a beard, the tallest, the first born outside of the original 13 colonies, the only one with a patent, the one who granted the most pardons, probably the strongest and one of the few poets.” (

Read Across America, begun in 1997, is a day set to celebrate reading. It is celebrated each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.  This year members of the High School National Honor Society were our guest readers.  Seth, Eli, Jordan H, Joey, Whitney, Kat, Jenn, Nate, and Kolter shared books and activities related to Dr. Seuss books with the preschool and elementary students.

The Little Hawks Book Bags reached a milestone this month. Aubrey Anderson, the daughter of Matt and Jessie Anderson, was the first to have 500 books read to her.  She was recognized at a special presentation during Read Across America.

Little Hawks Book Bag program started in October 2012 with a  goal to have all preschoolers be read 500 books by the time they start kindergarten.  Book bags were purchased through a generous donation by Security First Bank.  The books were labelled and bags filled by Ms. Bila and the National Honor Society.

The fourth grade class has been working very hard on writing all this year. Normally we are focused on Narrative writing as that is what our state test will be on this year. Recently though we read a story called Cendrillon in our Reading text book. It is a Cinderella type story. We decided to write our very own Cinderella or Cinderfella fairy tales and share them with other classrooms. The 4th graders wrote stories, edited them, then made them into books which they then illustrated. We would like to thank the students and teachers that allowed us to come into their rooms and share our stories.
