Community Interaction via Facebook

Hay Springs School is diving into a new form of community/school interaction via Facebook. The first opportunity comes from the 5th grade taught by Mrs. Anderson. The class would like the community to weigh-in on their ecosystems and the food chain decomposition project.

Fifth graders have been learning about ecosystems and the food chain to develop the idea that plants, animals, and fungi form a system of interdependent parts, with each part dependent of the other parts for its material nourishment.  In our latest investigation, we made mold terrariums to see if the same food will mold faster or slower in different conditions.  Two groups had to test a way that they could encourage decomposition, and two groups had to test a way that would inhibit decomposition.

Group 1: The Popinators – Will adding soda to the food will cause it to decompose more quickly?
Group 2: The Frighties – Will placing mold terrarium in a warm place cause the food to decompose more quickly?
Group A: Camo Princesses – Will adding vinegar to food will inhibit decomposition?
Group B: The Great & Powerful Mold Stoppers – Will placing terrarium in a freezer inhibit decomposition?

For your chance to weigh-in, follow the link below or log onto the Hay Springs Public Schools facebook page.

Flu Season has Arrived

Wyoming is reporting statewide flu activity and Nebraska is still at local but could be changing quickly according to Panhandle Public Health District. 

Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. You have the power to protect yourself and your family this season with these three actions to fight flu.

  1. Get a flu vaccine. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. A yearly flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. As long a flu viruses are circulating, it is not too late to get vaccinated!
  2. Take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs. Wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands often with soap and water. If you become sick, limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them.
  3. Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them. If you get the flu, medicine, called antiviral drugs, can be used to treat flu illness. Antiviral drugs can make illness milder and shorten the time you are sick. They may also prevent serious flu complications.
