Move That Bus!!!

The School Rental House is almost COMPLETE! The shop classes have been working on one of the school’s rental houses throughout the school year, and are almost finished. Mr. Badje’s Shop classes painted the walls, put in new carpeting and redid the floors. They also added some new counters in the kitchen and in the bathroom they put in a new shower and sink. They also put in some windows. Mr. Badje and his classes have been working very hard this school year and the proof is in the pictures!

Early Development Network

Nebraska is a national leader in providing early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities. Thousands of children and their families have benefited from the state’s early intervention program, known as the Early Development Network.

How can the Early Development Network help?
The Early Development Network provides services and supports that are designed based on the needs of children birth to age three and their families with the belief that parents know what is best for their families. These services are designed to act on what families think is important for their child and family. Friendly, supportive people who listen to and respect families staff the Network. These people can connect families with other families who have had similar experiences.

The goal of the Early Development Network is to provide coordinated services for Nebraska families as conveniently as possible. The program helps families to understand their child’s disability and provides assistance in dealing with situations that interfere with the child’s development. Families may choose a particular service or all services. Families also may refuse services at any time.

How do I find out if a child is eligible?
The Early Development Network serves children from birth to age three and their families. A child is eligible for Early Development Network services if he or she is not developing typically, or has been diagnosed with a health condition that will affect his or her development.  Identifying such delays or disabilities usually involves both the family and a team of professionals.

If there are concerns that a child is behind in his or her development, people are encouraged to call the Chadron office at 1-308-747-2405 or 1-800-717-1231. Referrals are taken year-round from anyone with concerns, including parents, childcare providers, and others who have obtained the permission of the parents.

Children’s Book Drive

Hay Springs Public Schools has demonstrated outstanding test scores on our standardized tests. To continue these test scores, the sixth graders feel that it’s important  for our younger students to actively read over the summer.

The sixth grade class is organizing a book drive for the Hay Springs Elementary and preschools. We are asking the middle level and high school students and staff to participate by bringing two or more gently used children’s books to distribute to the Elementary and preschool students to read over the summer.

We are taking book donations until May 11. You may bring the books to Ms. Bila’s room.
