Students in Grades K-6 will have a unique opportunity this month. The Hagerstown Elementary School Parent & Teacher Organization is sponsoring a two-day visit by the mobile classroom from the Center Of Science And Industry in Columbus, Ohio. The hands-on, learning theme coming to HES is called The Incredible Human Machine. COSI’s ‘Body Mechanic’ will help students learn what it takes to keep their body engines in tip-top shape by exploring the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems, plus learning about nutrients and how exercise keeps a body healthy. The HES PTO is looking for parent and community volunteers to assist COSI personnel at learning stations both days. If you have time to spare, please contact Ms. Ullery at 765.489.4555 to lend a hand.
In additional PTO news, Ms. Ullery shares that the last Book Fair provided HES with a bonus that allowed 250 students to select a free book from the Book Fair to add to their at-home libraries. Just in time! January is a perfect time to curl up with a good book.
