Creative Kiddos Summer Camp

This summer camp is over for the year. We, once again, had a blast with our Creative Kiddos. They have made watercolor paints, watching it fizz as we mix vinegar and baking soda, and marveling over the strange consistency of the mixture, both liquid and solid at the same time. They mixed primary colors, learning how to make a rainbow of colors for their paints with only three colors to start with.

We made silly putty, enjoying getting our hands all gooey until it suddenly turned firm and dry. Once again mixing colors, both in the process of making and in combining everyones finished products.

We have painted with frozen paint, milk and chalk, tape and even regular old paint. The week is finished but we had a great time and hope everyone enjoys the rest of the summer.

Giving Back to the Community, April 13th

In appreciation for the support of our community, the students at HSH would like to “give back” to Hay Springs. We are seeking businesses, groups, organizations, and even the elderly who are in need of help. Teacher supervised groups of students are willing to wash windows, stock shelves, clean shops, rake lawns or scoop snow if necessary. We are willing to assist in any way needed.

Our “Give Back to the Community Day” is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on April 13, 2016. In the event of inclement weather, April 27, 2016, will be the alternate date.  If you would like to be added to our list, please call the high school office at 638-4434.
