Over the past few months, NASB has worked with students, educators, alumni, and more all across Nebraska to show just who, and what is public education in Nebraska and what it can create.  This video highlights the fantastic learning experiences happening every day in Nebraska’s public schools.  Nebraska has amongst the best teachers, administrators, and school board members in the nation leading our youth, and this video is a great opportunity to share those successes.
Students across Nebraska from kindergarten to 12th grade are featured throughout, as well as education leaders like Commissioner of Education, Dr. Matt Blomstedt, school board members, superintendents, teachers, and more.
Cameos from famous alumni proudly stating that they are products of public education in Nebraska include U.S. Senator Deb Fischer, Tom Osborne, U.S. retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson, and University of Nebraska Regent Tim Clare, to just name a few.

Want some free time in class?

If Kindergarten through 12th grade collects 2000 items for the food drive, every class will get 1 hour of free time.

Collect 2500, you get another half hour. Collect 3000, another half hour.  Classes can receive up to two hours of free time!

A case of Ramen Noodles counts as one item

Diapers count as two items!

Hay Springs Hawks: Homecoming 2016

Hay Springs Hawks: Homecoming 2016

Homecoming 2016 will take place the week of September 26-30th. Like every year there are plenty of fun activities planned for the week.

As for the dress up days. We encourage everyone to take part! Both the elementary, middle/high school students will be judged on their costumes. The dress-up days will be as follows.

Monday: Fake an Injury Day

Be creative with this one! Come to school pretending to have a weird “injury”. Arm in a sling, bandaged head, turf toe, who knows? Let’s see who can create the most interesting “injury”!

Monday there also be the ultimate kickball showdown! It will be the freshman/seniors vs. the sophomore/juniors. It will take place at the softball field.

Tuesday: Tacky Clothes Day

Go look through the old trunk in the attic. Maybe your mother was a disco diva, or your father has a suit that looks like it was made from the upholstery of an old Volkswagen? It’s time to wear it to school! Show off your tacky cloths. Most days you want to look your best, today you want to look your worst!

Tuesday will also feature blind volleyball at Lister-Sage.

Wednesday: Hillbilly Day

Channel your inner Hillbilly! Hillbillies know how to have fun, and so do you. Go look through your closest, maybe you can wear a Canadian Tuxedo? (All denim) Overalls, big hats, fake beards! It’s up to you. Come to school and let’s get ready to have a good ole time!

Thursday: Hat & Jersey Day:

Show your school spirit by wearing your Hawk Jersey and maybe a hat. Any jersey might do! Show off your pride on this day!

Homecoming coronation will take place on Thursday at 3:00. The pep rally will follow downtown at 3:30. Students will then walk back to school to be dismissed.
