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.

Fundraiser for Emily Knop

A free-will donation chili supper and a silent auction will be held from 5-7 PM to benefit Emily Knop on Friday, March 11 at the Hinton Community School multi-purpose room. 

Art Show in Sioux City

The 22nd Annual Juried Youth Art Exhibition will be at the Sioux City Art Center February 26th through April 17th. The Art Center is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They’re open on Thursdays from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. On Sundays, they open at 1:00 pm and close at 4:00 pm. The Art Center is at 225 Nebraska Street, Sioux City. The opening reception will be on Sunday, February 27th from 1:30-3:00 pm; the awards presentation will begin at 2:00 pm.

In January, twenty artworks from Hinton’s elementary students were submitted to be judged. The second graders included: Taylor Reuter, Desi Riley, Aislynn Haefs, Robbie Batcheller, and Morgan Montgomery. The third graders were: Alka Eilades, Kyle Brighton, Jaden Jenkins, Luke Derochie, and Kara Pridie. The fourth grade artists included: Jillian Hicklin, Turner Schmitt, Kiana Smutzler, Sam Vaught, and Megan Montgomery. Finally, the fifth grade was represented by: Jacob Vondrak, Jacob Kirwin, Madison Kovarna, Samantha Kallsen, and Morgan Schoenrock.

Many teachers from different schools submitted artwork for this show. There were 469 pieces by different elementary students that were judged. Jenny Bye from the Sioux City Art Center said, “This year was a tough competition and the bar was set high.” They only had room for 91 works in the show, and 4 of those spots will go to Hinton students! Fourth graders Jillian Hicklin and Turner Schmidt had their Egyptian scarabs selected. The judges also picked two fifth grade fans created by Jacob Kirwin and Madison Kovarna.
