The girl’s competitive cheer team took second place at the recent District tournament scoring their highest point total of the season. This has qualified the girls for the Regional tournament and allows them to continue to pursue their run at a State championship.
We also have three wrestlers who have advanced out of the Regional tournament to compete at next week's State title event. All three of these young men will represent Hart in hopes of being crowned State Champion!

Despite the wintry weather this past week, HMS was able to hold two full nights of Parent Teacher conferences and we are proud to report that over 60% of our parents (all numbers not in yet) made the effort to attend. It is always good to connect with parents and let them know how their child is doing academically as well as socially and emotionally.

Spitler had a successful Book Fair during conferences. We earned $1,050 in Scholastic Dollars, which is used to purchase books for March is Reading Month. Every child will get to select a brand new book during our Reading Fiesta!!

We are very proud of our children’s behavior on our recent field trip to Sandcastles Children’s Museum. We had a long ride to Ludington, and our behavior was excellent! We even had to be really quiet so our bus driver could listen at a railroad track! We were on our best behavior at Sandcastles. We followed the 4 Bees with the additional Sandcastles rule of Have Fun! Awesome job, preschoolers!

Imagine a world with no change. It's virtually impossible. The mail would still be pony express or telegraph, horse and buggy or your own two feet would be the primary source of transportation. To not have change is almost counter-intuitive to human nature. Since the beginning of time, the human race has always sought out ways to do everything better and faster than before. This natural part of the human spirit is what has drove the greatest inventions ever...electricity, indoor plumbing, computers, cell phones etc. Business has to embrace change or they become extinct as a result of the competition. In many ways, the human race and business have a lot in common. Competition drives their behavior and survival. Schools need to understand that they are not an exception to this natural fact. We must change to survive.
Students and families have so many choices when it comes to receiving a K-12 education, that if families are not satisfied with their current situation they can and do take their business elsewhere. It is absolutely imperative that Hart Public Schools actively seeks out improvement in its instructional delivery, academic programming and its extra-curricular activities which includes both Arts and Athletics. Hart Public Schools must have a competitive edge when competing for students. In this era, this is exactly what every district must do....compete.
As part of our competitive edge, Hart Public Schools is actively pursuing the full implementation of Google for the 2014-2015 school year and leaving the world of Microsoft. We are re-evaluating our athletics with a comprehensive plan that includes off-season programming and we are looking at preserving and growing our Art offerings.
It is a great day to be a Pirate!
