Points of Pride – May 19, 2015

 

Hancock Elementary School

  • The third grade finished up their study of vertebrates with individual oral presentations about an animal that they researched.  A parent volunteer worked with each student to create a PowerPoint as a visual support for their oral presentation. The presentations for parents and students at HES were quite informative.
  • HES students, parents and teachers had a wonderful time preparing for and participating in Children and the Arts.  Students painted mini pictures which were on display at Joseph's Coat.  They also created "hot air balloons" to carry during the Giant Puppet Parade.  Finally, many children and parents helped out at the food court where the PTO sold ice cream as a fundraiser.  Fun was had by all.
  • Finally, last week the fourth grade built raised beds for Cornucopia.  K - 3rd graders filled the beds with young vegetable plants that they grew from seed.
