First grade students have been busy using their creativity on a project for the hallway. After reading "Grandpa's Gazillions Number Yard," our students got to work on designing a setting using numbers. Then, our students completed a writing to go along with their project! Great job, first grade!

Recently, our third graders completed an experiment where they learned how energy changes form. These scientists started by changing the chemical energy of a battery into mechanical energy to power a motor. Students also created and connected a color wheel that demonstrated light and sound energy as the wheel turned. All of our students showed perseverance and problem solving skills, as they adjusted the motor wires and worked to secure their color wheel and battery. Way to go third grade scientists!
School and family/community partnerships are vital to the success of Hempfield School District. We strive to use a variety of outreach tools to maintain strong communications networks.
To assess our efforts, we are offering a communications survey, which will be conducted annually. This survey focuses on the communications climate that exists relative to three specific areas: school building to home, classroom to home, and school district to community.
All Hempfield residents are encouraged to participate in the survey by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 3 so we can appropriately measure communication preferences and the effectiveness of our outreach.
The district recently solicited feedback from our stakeholders about three draft calendar options. This month’s 2-Minute Talk, explains the draft calendar process as well as the next steps that the district will take.
REMINDER: Friday, February 17, 2017 is a snow make-up day. School is in session. Students do not have school on Monday, February 20, 2017 in observance of President’s Day.
