Discovergarten and Kindergarten Registration for 2011-2012

Registration has begun at Hinton School for the 2011-2012 Discovergarten and Kindergarten classes.  Due to the opening of a new building in the fall of 2011, we are foregoing the traditional Roundup process used in the past.  The administrative team, along with the early childhood staff will hold a parent registration and information meeting on March 7th, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. During the meeting parents will have the opportunity to learn about the Discovergarten and Kindergarten programs, meet the early childhood staff and have any questions answered.  Parents will also be filling out all the necessary registration forms to attend school in the fall.  Parents should  register their child in advance by calling the school (947-4428) with this initial information: the child’s full name, address, phone number, and birth date.

Discovergarten is Hinton Community School’s transitional kindergarten program. Discovergarten program provides children with an extra year in which to grow socially, cognitively, and physically.  The program is open to all students who have turned five by September 15, 2011.  The program has no charge and follows the school calendar. 

If your child is 5 years of age on or before September 15, 2011, please call Janet at 947-4428.

Coaches vs. Cancer

P1011033Coaches vs. Cancer teamed up with the Hinton Hope Relay for Life team and made $950.00.  The team sold pink pom- poms, pink ribbon tattoos, baked goods, and pink ribbon cutouts decorated in honor or memory of someone who had cancer.   These were hung on a wall of honor in the lobby. Students could also wear a hat for $1.

 

That night, pink paper was sold to make paper airplanes. They were thrown at pizza boxes to see who could get the closest, and whoever got the closest got the pizza certificate. We also did a 50/50 raffle. The person that won donated all the money back to relay. The coaches were Coaches vs. Cancer polos and the cheerleaders were decked out in pink and tossed out pink towels.

The staff also got to wear jeans for the day if they paid five dollars.  It was a “pink-a-licious day” and very profitable for Coaches vs. Cancer.  All proceeds were deposited in the Hinton Hope Relay for Life account at the American Cancer Society.
