Bell Tower Preservation

The bells from the top of the former Harrison Central building have been preserved and brought to the new school in Mr. Noble’s shop class, as they will be working on the preservation. The first bell dates to 1868, the second bell 1901, and the third bell 1930. The bell originating from 1868 survived a fire from when the building caught fire in an earlier year. After the preservation is complete, the bell will be located in the area next to the track, where there are many items from the history of the school.

Easter Fun

Some of our 5th and 6th grade students learned about the Mexican / Spanish tradition of making confetti eggs also known as cascarones. The students took great interest in this multicultural experience.

Kicking It in Kindergarten

A big thank you to the Harrison County Farm Bureau for their recent donation of books for our students. Mrs. Pelegreen is reading a book about farm tractors to a kindergarten class.

Kindergarten has been working on clay eggs in art class.

Fun in First

First grade has been Weavin’ Watermelon with Ms. V in art class!

Soaring in Second

Second grade students got the privilege to be read to by high school student athletes. The book read to the second graders was titled “The Hog Mollies and the Visit with Victoria.” Each second grader gets their own copy of the book courtesy of The 2nd and 7 Foundation. The mission of the 2nd and 7 Foundation is to promote reading by providing free books and positive role models to kinds in need while encouraging young athletes of the community to pay it forward. 

Students in Miss Tipton’s 2nd grade were each given a Peep. They had to answer questions about the peep using their imagination, then they could eat their peep, and lastly, they had to turn their answered questions into a paragraph with at least five sentences.

Harrison Central seniors; Kaitlyn and Abbi came to Miss Tipton's 2nd grade to teach a lesson on plants in agriculture. They read a story to the students about seeds. Then they gave each student a foldable of the life cycle of a sunflower. The two seniors walked through the life cycle of the sunflower with the students asking them questions as they glued labels on each step of their foldable. When completed they had a foldable sunflower. The students enjoyed the lesson!

Fabulous in Fourth

Fourth graders completed a Mystery Science activity called “Rocking the River.” They watched a video about purple sand on a beach in California and determined that a river was bringing pieces of the rock from a mountain which was not nearby. Mrs. Agostini and her students simulated the activity using construction paper as boulders to show how the rocks break up as they are transported.

Fantastic in Fifth

Fifth graders have been working on Straw Weaving Bracelets with Ms. V in art class.

Accelerated Reader goals were set higher the 3rd nine weeks, and these students in each of the 5th grade homerooms met and/or surpassed their goals. They were treated to an extra recess before Easter break. Great job, fifth graders! 

Tweeting from 21st

Mrs. Starr’s 6th grade 21st Century Enrichment class constructed towers out of drinking straws. The towers had to hold the weight of a softball, volleyball, and basketball. The tallest tower that held the weight of all three and deemed the winner was constructed by the partnership of Amelia Puskarich and Mikayla Pelegreen. Great job to all students! All straw towers were successful at holding the weight of the softball.

Mrs. Starr's 4th grade 21st century Enrichment class just completed a project in which they had to create a new state using the levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. The students were required to create a name, adoption date, climate description, an outline map of the state, a flag, description of the government, education, and justice systems, a list of reasons to visit the state, and design a state seal. To share their creations, the students used display boards.
