Meet Farmer Pher!
The kindergarten classes have adopted a farmer for the year. His name is Farmer Pher, some of you may know him as Christopher Fischer! We have learned so many things about farming and pigs! Each class has adopted a pig. We have named our pig and Pher keeps us up to date on how much our pig weighs. We have had a Farm Chat with Farmer Pher and Melissa Nelson. Melissa is our Agriculture Lady for Hinton Elementary.

Project Read
Fourth grade students were invited to participate in Project READ this week at Hinton School. Project Read is an initiative that will promote literacy and encourage students to reuse books. The project begins with every student receiving a free book. Students will Read, Enjoy, And Donate: READ!! When finished reading, the students will be able to donate the book back - and take a new one to enjoy. The cycle will go on and on!! With over 80 books to choose from, the students learn how one small book can provide enjoyment for so many!!! If you would like to contribute to Project READ- we are accepting new or gently used 4th grade level chapter books.
