New laptops for K-12 resource rooms

The students in the K-12 resource rooms were greeted with six brand new laptops at the beginning of the school year. A big thank you goes out to Mr. Attrill and his students for setting up the computers! The students have been working diligently with the laptops on a daily basis using them for research, homework, current events, and monitoring their grades. Many of them have commented on how nice it is to be able to use them in the classroom setting whenever they need it.

Hinton Round- Up

Hinton Kindergarten and Discovergarten Round-Up are scheduled for Friday, March 30 and we are very excited to meet our upcoming students. Two sessions will be offered, with the morning session taking place from 9:00-10:30 AM, and the afternoon session from 1:00-2:30 PM. We are asking all parents to register their child by calling the school with this initial information: the child’s full name, making sure that it is spelled correctly, address, phone number, and birth date.

Early registration is essential to reserve the session you prefer. Discovergarten is Hinton Community School’s transitional kindergarten program and provides an additional year of maturity growth for children who developmentally need it. The early childhood staff will be notifying the parents if this wonderful program would benefit their child.

If your child is 5 years of age on or before September 15, 2007, please call the Hinton Elementary office at 947-4428.

Students having fun reading.
