Weekly Update April 11th, 2014


Whew! We did it! CAS tests have been packed up and shipped out. Standing Ovation for our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders for their hard work! And to our staff who completed CAS administration with such ease (it seemed). Now, on to more exciting news! CAS Kickball was a huge success. Students played each afternoon after testing and celebrated the end of a long two weeks of testing with a pizza party! Thanks to Mr. Toland for coordinating the tournament! PK-2nd grade students have been working extra hard this week. I’ve seen 1st grade students creating their own version of Cinderella and PK students studying the life of a seed. In Kindergarten students created a beautiful garden out of basic shapes, which they cut all on their own!
Check it out in the main hallway!

I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing and fun Spring Break! 

Staff Highlight

hargrove.jpgJanice Hargrove has been an aide in our self-contained Autism classroom at least since my arrival in 2011. Ms Hargrove, I believe, is the best kept secret at Hearst. Because her classroom is not in the spotlight, many of you may not even know her. But, she is one amazing educator! And, she has a smile that lights up any room. If you’ve not met Ms Hargrove, I encourage you to drop by  room M202 and introduce yourself!
