Harrison Central Elementary

• In recognition of the National Awareness Day, September 25, of the If You See Something, Say Something D.A.R.E. Officer Deputy Tony Sedgmer education our grades 3-6 on not only how to stay safe, but also how to keep others around you safe, also.

• Third grade students learned about some of the tools scientists use to do their job. Students then looked at objects using hand lenses and finally under a microscope!

• Third graders created and presented “Role Model” posters in Social Studies class after reading about role models and the behaviors and characteristics that make a person admirable.

• Mrs. Rocchi’s 21st Century students walked four laps around the playground. We kept track of laps with silly bands on our writs. Then we traded in the bracelets for a necklace charm of a tennis shoe. Each mile earns a charm. Our goal is to walk the equivalent of a marathon. The support and encouragement the children showed each other was heartwarming. One mile is not easy! They are learning about valuing their health, teamwork and responsibility (they are keeping their necklaces to add charms in the future.)

• Each student in Mrs. Doty’s 2nd grade class adopted a pet this week. With the adoption, students promised to read to their pet 20 minutes each night. The students were excited! The class also used their Smartboard to practice spelling words; it was a fun, new way to learn!

• Mrs. Tiffany works with Miss Elizabeth Tipton’s kindergarten class in Project Kind. Students learn ways they can show kindness to each other throughout the day.

• Fourth grade enjoyed the ever-popular field trip to Zitko Farm. Students enjoyed learning all about how a working farm operates on a daily basis.

• After Miss Anna Tipton’s 2nd grade class read the story, A Walk in the Desert, Miss Terri brought in a real cactus so the students could visualize what they’d just read.

• Miss Jacobsen’s 1st grade students learned about problems and how they are solved in their reading story, A Pig in a Wig, this week. They wrapped up the week by summarizing the story using a graphic organizer and creating their own pig in a wig from the story. Also, the first writer in the spotlight for the new school was Chloe Lan. At the end of each week students do a quick write sheet with a writing prompt about the weekly story. They must try to sound words out, use words in the word bank and from the word wall to complete their writing. Chloe made sure to include her capital letters and ending marks on her sentences as well as sounding her words out on her own.

• Avalyn Sall was recognized for the kindness she shows to others. She allowed another student to be the line leader during bus dismissal. She demonstrates good leadership qualities on a daily basis by helping others, following the rules, respecting others, and working hard. Way to go Avalyn!

• September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and Harrison Central Elementary had the opportunity to remember one of our own, Drew Palmer. To keep his memory alive, students took a walk around the school led by Drew’s family. Although Drew is no longer with us, he will always be remembered!
