Personal Finance Challenge

Hay Springs High School Students competed in the Fall Finance Challenge!

The Finance Challenge is sponsored by the Nebraska Council on Economic Education. The challenge promotes budgeting and general financial literacy in a competitive environment.

We had two teams that competed in the Fall Finance challenge which is a computerized test where students compete against other Nebraska teams. Hay Springs teams competed against 385 other high school teams. Our Accounting 1 team which was comprised of Kaelob Marx, Mattie Johnson, Erin Kadlecek and Payton Schoenhals placed second place winning $20 each. Our second team Personal Finance 1 was comprised of Sam Kearns, Addie Regier, and Thomas Scherbarth and they ranked 92nd in the High School Division.

Students will also compete in the Spring competition in late March. If the students are in the top five in the region they will advance to the regional competition and then on to the National Competition.

Kindergarten Visits Hay Springs Museum

Kindergarten enjoyed an afternoon at the Hay Springs museum.  Their favorite parts were sitting in the old desks and dancing to music on a record player!  They are all glad we live in the present and not the past.


Equine Visitor

First Grade is working on a Social Studies unit about Life Long Ago. We conducted interviews of family members to find out what life was like long (or longer) ago. We learned from our interviews many things such as how some people rode horses to school longer ago. We were fortunate to have a pony visit us this week! Goliath quickly made friends with everyone in our class and also made a visit to the PreK class as well. It was a great experience and we now have many horse enthusiasts! Thank you to the Gaswick family for sharing Goliath with us.
