Weekly Update February 28th, 2014

As the Sochi Olympic Games came to a close, all of us at Hearst reflected on the Olympic games. Throughout our school we embraced the Olympics, and teachers used their creative juices to incorporate much of the Games into their lessons. In Ms Boyle’s classroom, students tracked the medals, creating charts and graphs throughout the process. In Ms Schiers’ class, students created Olympic Posters. And, in Ms Barron’s 2nd grade classroom students created their own “Olympics Cereal Boxes” to display in the hallway. We are all ready for Spring, but it was great fun to celebrate winter, winter sports and the spirit of healthy competition!

Staff Highlight

Ms Hicks works very closely with students on a daily basis, helping to improve their reading and math levels and work on social-emotional development.  Ms Hicks enjoys spending time with her family when she’s not at Hearst. Actually, even when she is here, she’s not too far from family, as two of her granddaughters are Hearst Owls.
