Dear HTS Community:

  • Our annual Senior Citizen Appreciation Breakfast was held on Thursday, April 19th. Our distinguished guests enjoyed a light meal and casual conversation about Harding Township School. Entertainment was provided by the HTS Chorus, Jazz Band as well as the cast of Seussical, Jr. Additionally, the group enjoyed a Lorax presentation from our first grade students and watched the very first episode of HTS TV.  A great time was had by all.
  • The HTS PTO will be sponsoring their annual Fashion Show Fundraiser on Friday, April 27 at the Madison Hotel.  The event will be held from 6:00-10:00 and tickets are still available.  For more information, please contact Terry Ducey ducey5@yahoo.com We hope you can support this wonderful event.
  • Our students and teachers in grades K-2 are finishing up their first year of working with Singapore Math.  In the fall, Singapore Math curriculum will “move up” with our students and be taught in grades K-3; this curriculum advancement will continue each autumn.  If you have any thoughts about this program, please share them with us.  You can contact us directly at HTS or leave your opinion in the comments section of this blog.
  • It’s a little late, but here is George Will’s annual baseball quiz.  Any taker that can top my 11 correct answers wins a prize which, consistent with baseball parlance, will be named later.  Good luck.
  • The HTS Class of 2013 is offering parents a Date Night! On Friday, May 4th, parents are encouraged to drop their children off at HTS from 6:00-10:00 and go out to dinner and a movie.  The event is open to HTS children in PreK and up.  HTS teachers, grade 7 students and their parents will be on hand to offer children a treasure hunt, games, peanut-free snacks, a movie and much more.  The cost is minimal – $20/ per student with a family limit of only $30.  For additional information, please contact our class advisors, Mr. Alworth talworth@hardingtwp.org or Ms. Haro mharo@hardingtwp.org
  • Lastly, and on a more serious note…as I post this, people across the globe are commemorating Holocaust Remembrance Day.  Parents can find some powerful videos on YouTube here and here and here and use them as a “teachable moment” at home.  Please preview the videos to make sure they are age appropriate for your children.
