Week Of The Young Child
This week, April 2-8, is the Week of the Young Child. The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early childhood education association, with nearly 60,000 members and a network of 52 Affiliates. The purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child is a time to plan how we—as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation—will better meet the needs of all young children and their families. Please watch for more information and pictures as our preschool classroom celebrates this week with Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday, and Family Friday.
Ground Hog Day Celebration!
The Hay Springs Public School PK-5th grades enjoyed a Ground Hog Day celebration this morning…or rather a “Hound Dog Day” celebration…with a special visitor! After learning about the weather outlook for the next 6 weeks, the kids had some yummy treats before returning to their room. A huge thank you to Mrs. Weyers for organizing this warm and wonderful event on such a cold day!

HSPS 2019-2020 Afternoon Preschool Class Year End Video
We had such an amazing afternoon preschool class this year with all of our morning kids returning and adding some great new friends. I was both happy and sad while creating this video, sad that we had to leave so much unfinished and happy to look back on all the smiles, growth, and learning that we did have together. I hate that we didnt get to end our year with our classmates, to say goodbye, or to give our kiddos a real graduation to celebrate all that they have accomplished. I am so proud of this class and can’t wait to see the amazing things they do next year! It’s tough to think that when I see them next, they will be in kindergarten, but I know that they are ready! Congratulations Hay Springs Preschool Class and parents, have an amazing summer!
