Last week some of our students participated in the Hour of Code Week that is celebrated all around the world. This celebration is held to promote computer programming and coding in schools for students of all ages. Our Hershey Elementary students love exploring, problem-solving, collaborating, and creating through coding apps and the code.org website. We are excited to continue to support and challenge our students in these areas and in computer science to prepare them for their futures.
Students in Mrs. Dunlop's 4th grade classroom decided to answer that question. As a reward for outstanding behavior, they decided to dress for their favorite careers. Can you guess what they are going to be?
Way to go Mrs. Dunlop and the stuents in Rm. 49!

Last week the PTO provided an amazing opportunity for our students to purchase presents for their families and friends for the upcoming holidays. The snowball express was visited by all of our classrooms and students throughout the week. Our students were so excited to be able to purchase gifts to give to their family members and friends. We thank the PTO and all of the parent volunteers who helped make the snowball express happen!
Third-grade students have been learning about rocks and minerals during science. A few weeks ago we were treated to Mike and Roberta Straka’s “Rock, Mineral, and Fossil Show”. Mike and Roberta are field paleontologists who enjoy sharing their expertise with elementary schools throughout the Northeast. During this assembly, students learned about how rocks form over millions of years, the different types of rocks and the rock cycle, and how rocks are formed from minerals. One highlight of the show was seeing an authentic 8-foot triceratops skull!
