Pirate Pride


The Hart Competitive Cheer team were the Conference Champions, District Champions, Regional Runner-Up and 7th overall in Division IV for the State this season.  I was pleased with how the girls performed at the State Finals.  We switched up the choreography, and I was very happy to see the hard work pay off.  I couldn't be more proud of my team and their accomplishments this season.  It was a very enjoyable season and another one that I will always remember. - Mrs. Hlady, Competitive Cheer Coach



This week a teacher witnessed a student making a bad choice, but rather than quickly reprimand him/her, gathered their thoughts and used it as an opportunity to talk about why we don't do certain things, why there are rules etc.  When the student was asked "What are we always telling students to do?"  The student quickly replied "Do the right thing" then proceeded to apologize for "not doing the right thing".  It makes HMS "proud" to know that positive life skills are not only being "taught" but being "caught" one student at a time!
 - Mrs Hallack, Secretary



During Math Specials the students have been working on their math skills using the iPad. Students have been able to work on games like Splash Math and TODO Math that work to improve a wide range of skills that get them ready for classroom math instruction. This week our first graders have worked on greater than, less than, and equal to using the Butterfly Math app. Last week Ms. Castillo's class chose a food "Bonus Day Activity". They practiced subtracting 3 digit numbers using graham crackers (100's), carrot sticks (10's), and smarties (1's). - Ms. Schmalz,Teacher



The DWECC is taking part in many March is Reading Month activities.  I am proud of our center's families who are attending the Lights Out! Family Storytime at Spitler on Tuesday.  Our center has already read over 100 books between reading at home and reading in the classroom!
- Mrs. Scott, GSRP Teacher
