Anti-bullying Campaign at HGES


Students at Holly Grove participated in a campaign to stop bullying.  Each morning there was an announcement to share with the students how to handle a bullying situation in a safe way.  Students watched a video from that explained what bullying is and ways to stop it.  Classes decorated their doors or created banners outside their classrooms to show their commitment to stop bullying and to treat others with respect.

First Grade Learns About Pumpkins

Students have been learning about pumpkins, their parts, their life cycle, and their uses for Science enrichment.  Today they participated in an activity cutting open pumpkins in groups of 3 with a parent volunteer.  They removed the seeds and used a place value board to practice counting by ones and tens.  The activity was followed by a pumpkin snack.
