Elder’s Wisdom Program

The 2013 Elders’ Wisdom community celebration will be held on Thursday, April 11 at Hay Springs High School. This year’s honorees are Margaret Bork and Delmer Hindman. As in the past, the evening will feature good food, fine entertainment, and a thoughtful look into the lives of the honorees.

The celebration will begin with a free-will donation supper, which will include a variety of fresh soups and desserts. Supper will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. The program will follow at 7:00 pm in the auditorium.

Mistress of Ceremonies Mrs. Beth Jungck promises to deliver an upbeat program featuring the school choirs, short films about the honorees, and other lively entertainment in keeping with the theme of the evening. After gathering oral history from Margaret Bork and Delmer Hindman, the high school Video Production class created the two short films about the honorees.  The Video Production class includes Christian Bila, Austin Reed, Patrick Biesterfeld, Laurin Bronson, and teacher Mrs. Efta. We hope that you will join us for the 13th annual Elders’ Wisdom Program!

Elder’s Wisdom Honorees Announced

The Video Production class has been busy planning for the Elders’ Wisdom Program, 2013. Honorees this year are Delmer Hindman and Margaret Bork, both long-time residents of the Hay Springs area. The students are learning about how to conduct an oral history interview and to produce a short film about each honoree. In the process, they are using historical resources to learn about local history and the times in which the honorees lived. The students recently visited Mr. Hindman and Mrs. Bork in their homes, in order to properly introduce themselves and to plan with each honoree for a filmed interview.

The Elders’ Wisdom Program is set to be held on the evening of Thursday, April 11. As in past years, a meal, entertainment, the films, and plenty of socializing will all be part of the event. Watch the Hip Hop for a formal announcement as the date draws near!

New Program to Begin – Girls on the Run

Are you a girl in the 3rd through 6th grade?  Do you like spending time with your friends, playing games, living a healthy lifestyle, making positive choices, exercising or running?  If you answered yes to ANY of these questions, Girls On The Run (GOTR) is the right program for you!

I have coached three seasons for the Girls On The Run organization in Lincoln.  This organization is a national organization just for girls and I am so happy to bring it to this area of Nebraska!  Hay Springs is excited to start this program at our school.  We will also be collaborating with the Chadron Public Schools teams for a community 5K fun run at the end of the season!  This season will begin in March and run for ten weeks.  The group meets every Tuesday and Thursday for the ten weeks.  Each time we meet, we will do a warm up activity, talk about issues important to girls, team building, do a running activity to prepare for the end of season 5K, and then have a wrap-up.  Each lesson is filled with high energy cheers, fun, and ultimately, Girl Power!

If you think this is something you would like to do, or would like more information, please stop by and talk to Mrs. Heiting or have your parents email her at kyli.heiting@panesu.org.
