Box Tops Update

A great BIG thank you goes out to those who collected box tops. Mrs. Olson just sent in a total of $725.00 worth of box tops.  This money is used to buy supplemental materials for classrooms, new playground equipment, and other non-essentials. Your support is very much appreciated. Way to go and keep on collecting!

You are welcome to drop your Box Tops at the school anytime.  Starting April 2, 2012, you will also be able to drop your Box Tops off at Security 1st Bank in Hay Springs. Look for our “Box Top Drop-Box” in the lobby. Go Hawks Collectors!

Math and Muffins

The 1st grade room was a little crowded on March 8th as parents and family members joined their students at school for Math & Muffins.  The idea behind Math & Muffins was to involve family members in the learning process.  While enjoying juice and muffins family members and kids played math games to reinforce what’s being learned in the classroom.  It was a very successful event and the students are already asking when we can do it again!

Swing Choir to Perform

On Thursday, March 22nd the high school swing choir will be giving performances in preparation for their upcoming contest on Friday, March 23. At 2:30 pm, the Swing Choir will be performing for the elementary students in the cafeteria.  At 3:00 pm, they will be performing in the lobby at Security First Bank.
