Lizzy Russell of Hillsboro Elementary/Middle School writes:
Third graders are learning the different properties of multiplication and division as well as learning their multiplication facts by using different tricks and songs.
Third grade has also been discussing food chains and food webs in science and even created a food chain on the laptops using clipart and powerpoint.
Since next week ends the first nine weeks all HEMS teachers are gearing up for their first round of benchmarks. We will have parent teacher meetings on Oct. 11.
*All of the eighth grade language arts classes presented their personal oral narratives last week using verbal and non-verbal techniques. Students created fabulous stories about favorite places, hobbies, and animal encounters of all kinds.
*HEMS Cross Country team participated in the Division 2 championship at Page on Sept. 26 and Nathan Hawkins took 1st place, while Tucker Whitten placed 4th; the team as a whole did a great job finishing the season.
