Weekly Update January 17, 2014

It’s been another busy week here at Hearst!

Our 2nd graders have been practicing different ways to do double digit addition! I got to see them trying lots of different strategies to work on accuracy and speed. In Ms Boyle’s scientists experimented with CHOCOLATE! They had fun AND got to learn about different states of matter. We had some indoor PE days as well, but Mr. Coleman had his athletes moving! Using a fun, interactive SmartBoard program, students spent their indoor PE time in full PE mode. I’d call it Insanity for Elementary School!


Staff Highlight

Vandivier.jpgMs Vandivier has lived and worked in the Hearst neighborhood for many, many years. As the school librarian, she works to establish a literacy rich environment throughout the school. Ms Vandivier takes great pride in the beautiful library she has developed over her years here. Through creative fundraising efforts she has created a collection of over 10,000 books for our students to enjoy! Ms Vandivier has four (almost) grown children and loves to garden and knit!

YUMMY Science in 1st grade!
