2nd Grade 4th Grade Maker Space Exploration

Students in 2nd and 4th grade worked on problem solving in our Maker Space. They worked in teams assembling marble runs and designing with Strawbees. Students also programmed the Ozobots and the Sphero robot balls. It was a fun day of Hadfield community building and learning with some of the new tools we have in the Maker Space.

Thank you to all of our guests that attended Grandfriend's Day on March 1st. It was a memorable day at Hadfield for everyone. Our students had an awesome morning reading and spending time with these special friends.

The Importance of School Attendance

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.


Please click HERE for more information about the importance of attendance.

Staff Parking Lot

Just a reminder for safety reasons students should not be picked up in the staff parking lot. Parking is available on Bell Street. The staff parking lot has two handicap parking spots. Please only park in those spots if you have the correct handicap permits.

MARCH PHYSICAL ACTIVITY CALENDAR


SHAPE America recommends school-age children accumulate at least 60 minutes and

up to several hours of physical activity per day. Each bout of physical activity should be

followed by cool-down stretches that help reduce soreness and avoid injury. Happy exercising!
