The fifth graders have been investigating solar energy. Today, we conducted an experiment to learn which earth materials, dry soil, wet soil, water, or rocks, collect and store solar energy most efficiently. We first placed each cup of material in the sun for 20 minutes, then moved the cups to a shady area where we recorded the temperature every 3 minutes for 21 minutes. So…which material do you think collected and stored the most solar energy? And which material lost the most solar energy? Leave your guesses in the comments!

Groundhog Day is coming up on February 2nd. First grade needs your help. We will use our Groundhog Day predictions to create a graph and analyze if our predictions are correct!
What do you predict Punxutawney Phil will do? Will he see his shadow and predict 6 more weeks of winter? Or will he not see his shadow and spring will be on it’s way! Some sources say he has been correct about 39% of the time.

HSPS got into the spirit of the season this week when students and teachers donated food items to the Good Neighbor of Hay Springs. The group was challenged to bring as many items as possible. Classes were competing against one another for a 2-hour early release for Thursday before break. Teachers were promised to get a one-hour late start for their next staff in-service. Seventh graders took high honors and will enjoy an early out; teachers also made their goal and will be rewarded at the next teacher in-service. The Good Neighbor is always in need of items, especially during this time of year. Mrs. Marx and students rallied together and loaded the goods into the suburban and took a trip to the Good Neighbor where more volunteers waited to start putting holiday baskets together for needy families. What a difference a little time and effort can make in the lives of so many. Happy holidays to all from all of us at HSPS!
