New Britton Elementary
September 15, 2023
I AM. YOU ARE. WE ARE. BULLDOGS!
News from Mrs. Mankin
1st Grade - Mrs. Hower's Class
3rd Grade - Mrs. Poe's Class
Hamilton Southeastern Schools (HSE) are fortunate to have community partners for for 1st - 5th grades. Our 1st grade students travel to Ritchey Woods for the Nature First science-based, outdoor learning experience. Second grade students learn about life on a farm as they observe and interact with animals and plants at our Fishers AgriPark. Our 3rd graders learn about our local government with a City of Fishers municipality partnership. They are able to visit several government buildings and participate in simulations. History is "brought to life" for our 4th grade students as they take part in experiential learning at Conner Prairie. When our students transition to 5th grade in HSE, they take part in hands-on experiences at Hub and Spoke. We are fortunate to have these community partnerships, and they will serve as the foundation for the work that we are embarking on as a district as we further develop our high school career pathways. I will be sharing more about this work in the upcoming weeks and months.
As always, thank you for partnering with us in education! Enjoy this beautiful weekend. Take time to relax.
