Routes to School Program
Calendar - Searchable
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
Coaches 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.
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.
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.
