The Book Fair is in full swing. Stop by after school and take a look. Next Thursday we will be open until 8:00 pm during Parent-Teacher Conferences. If you can’t make it to the school, you can shop online. Just click here! The online purchases benefit the school and are delivered free of charge to the school. The online store is open until October 20. The online store features a larger selection of books. There are selections for all ages from pre-school to adults. For all you Harry Potter fans, the entire series with new Brian Selznick cover art is on the site.
Three members of the Hay Springs Volunteer Fire Department took time out of their day to meet with elementary students for Fire Safety Week. Craig Housh, Matt Anderson, and Terry Bronson talked with students about the importance of knowing what to do in case of a fire. Please review your family’s plan with your child including: a safe meeting location, how to call 911, knowing their home address, and having a safe exit out of the house.
Second Grade teacher Mrs. Vander May signed her class up for a Donors Choose project asking for donations for flexible seating. Last week the donations were met including a donation of magazine and box tops fundraising. The second grade classroom has a complete set of unique seats for each student to use! Using these different types of seats we hope to gain muscle strength and balance, and have the ability to let their little bodies wiggle while focusing. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped fund-raise!
Second grade asked for a Scholastic book sponsor to provide $9 for each student to receive a dollar book each month for the rest of the year. We had an overwhelming group of sponsors from Hay Springs, Nebraska to Oklahoma! So we practiced our friendly letters, wrote “thank you” letters, took a class picture of everyone with their new books, and finally made an exciting trip to the post office to stamp, send, and sort our letters as we learned how postal workers are community helpers! We also found our personal mailboxes from the postal worker side!
I am requesting that students offer input into the Hay Springs School classroom behavioral expectations by answering the following questions by checking the response that most accurately identifies your feelings concerning the best possible learning environment in your classrooms.
