Herington Schools would like to thank all Veterans for their service to this great country today for Veterans Day. The High School Student Council created a unique opportunity for the high school students this morning. Instead of having a normal assembly where students get talked at, students were able to be talked with by Veterans. There were 11 veterans who were set up at tables. Students were free to move around the gym to learn about our community veterans and their lives. Students gave very high compliments on the event being very personal and most wished there was more time. The veterans were pleased with how respectful the students were when listening. This was a great opportunity for students to connect with community members and to learn communication skills. STUCO would like to thank all Veterans who came out today. They will be doing something like this again next year because of the success of this year!

Then, Mrs. Koehn cut the papers apart and mixed them up, and distributed the descriptions to the class. The final step was for students to read the descriptions and match them to the correct picture of each student! #beingallwecanbe

Mrs. Gutsch's third grade class enjoyed several beginning of the year activities. One meaningful experience was reading "Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes" and discussing how Pete does not let little things get him down. We brainstormed issues that get in our way sometimes, one of which is other people's words. Students then squirted out an entire mini tube of toothpaste (representing others' words) and were asked to put the toothpaste back into the tube. This proved almost impossible! The takeaway: choose your words wisely, because once they come out of your mouth, you can't put them back in! We can clean up the mess, but we cannot fully put the toothpaste back into the tube! Our focus is using meaningful and kind words and having a positive attitude. #beingallwecanbe

Emilie Roe was honored Wednesday, May 1, in Topeka with a $1000 scholarship. She placed 5th in the 5th Annual Kansas Financial Scholars Essay Scholarship Contest. The essay contest was sponsored by the Kansas Banking Commission, the Kansas Securities Commission and the Kansas Insurance Department. Ninety students from across Kansas submitted essays for this contest. Students must have been enrolled in an approved financial literacy class. The personal finance class required to be taken by students of USD 487 to graduate meets this requirement. The essay had two parts. In the first part, students had to discuss a real-life event that they, a friend or family member has experienced that made a significant impact on the student’s view of smart money management. The students then had to interview one to two persons who are already active in the field/career to which they aspire. The students then wrote a 3 to 6-page analysis of how they will apply what they learned from the interview, what you wrote about Part 1, and what you learned from your financial literacy course to their own life as they prepare for the future. Congratulations Emilie!

Mrs. Gutsch’s third grade students learned about the life cycle with Mexican jumping beans! The students explained that the mother moth laid eggs in the seed pods and these seed pods have hardened since last September. During this time in the seed pod, the eggs have developed into larvae. This larvae has now dug its way out of the seed pod and formed a chrysalis. Finally, the larvae sheds the chrysalis and out comes a moth! Complete metamorphosis! #growinglearners

Herington schools will be collecting items until April 26 to send to families who were affected by the recent flooding in Iowa and Nebraska. At the elementary school we will accept cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items, non-perishable food, and cash. The high school and middle school will collect cash only. Our collections will go to Mills County, Iowa, with an emphasis on the residents of Pacific Junction. About 600 homes were damaged by the flooding in Mills County when three levies broke, and Pacific Junction still has homes that are under 3-4 feet of water. We chose to send our supplies to Mills County because it is a rural community with similarities to Dickinson County. #growinglearners

Mrs. Amy Gutsch's third grade has been participating in some IDL (Interactive Distance Learning) opportunities. These are taught by Greenbush Science Center in Southeast Kansas, and are offered to our district through the local TEEN network, which is headed by director Lena Kleiner. We connect through cameras and microphones brought in by Ms. Kleiner on the Zoom internet meeting platform. By participating in this, students gain extra science opportunities and expertise from certified science instructors. Often we can observe live animals, unusual plant species, or an experiment that we would not otherwise have access to in our classrooms. This month we learned about early flight discoveries from ancient artist and engineer Leonardo da Vinci. He left behind volumes of sketches of flying machines that later scientists utilized. We learned the engineering process and recreated it in a couple simple exercises. Students watch, learn, and follow the science instructor, Sharon Bertolio, lead them through lessons and experiments. We then continue the project after disconnecting from the 45 minute session. #growinglearners

In Round 5, Round 6, and the Championship,the number with the greatest value won. On Monday, we will all be back to practice in Number Worlds and busy building MATH CHAMPIONS! #growinglearners

We are on the first leg of our journey in this lab.  The higher we “splat” from, the better the chances of breaking the cell membrane and releasing the chromosomes.  Tomorrow we will stain, seal and view the chromosomes.    Wish us luck!

Attention Parents of K-3 Students: Reading Roadmap's Literacy-Integrated Family Engagement program, or LIFE, is a key component of our overall strategy for improving literacy for K-3 children. LIFE is designed to bring families together with schools to create supportive connections that will deepen children's relationships with their parents and enhance their literacy skills. Families that are connected to schools and to a community of parents are more likely to reach out to their child's school and to each other for support. LIFE sessions facilitate emotional and academic experiences aimed at increasing a child's reading skills while supporting a culture of literacy at home. Each week features activities to bring families closer together and create closer connections between families and our school. Parents and children work together to become lifelong learners and readers. The spring 2019 session begins on Jan. 28. Contact Deana Baldwin if you'd like to improve your power as a parent!

Dear Parents and Guardians, As part of SCHOOL/DISTRICT commitment to students’ safety and mental health, beginning in January, 2019 we are launching an anonymous reporting program, which will allow students and parents to make anonymous reports about concerns of safety or student wellness. Our program is student-focused, as opposed to crime-focused, meaning it is a tool for alerting caring adults about students who need help—not snitching. This is part of our continuous effort to increase campus and student safety, and provide students with a safe, completely anonymous outlet to share concerns. Students can use our new P3 Campus app to report: bullying, suicide concerns, depression, sexting, stealing, threats, cutting, abuse, dating and domestic violence, fights, drugs, alcohol, weapons or other types of dangerous situations that threaten their safety or the safety of others. Their reports will be addressed by a trained team of school officials and law enforcement, when necessary. When you or your student have a concern, you can go to P3Campus.com on your computer, tablet, or laptop-- or you can download the free P3 Campus mobile app-- and make a 100% anonymous report in less than five minutes. The use of anonymous reporting apps in state programs like Safe2Tell Colorado have proven to be successful in providing the tools and information needed for school officials and to proactively address concerning behaviors, potential incidents of violence, and other harmful situations on campus before they develop. We look forward to working with you and your student to continue making SCHOOL/DISTRICT a safe school.
