Hartshorn School Highlights
Wyoming School Wonders
- Ed Foundation Donation
On the agenda, this evening is the annual donation by the Ed Foundation for the proposed mini-grants in the amount of $150,999. We want to thank the Ed Foundation for their tireless efforts to support the district and the mini-grant process is one of the favorites of the staff and students.
- Comprehensive Equity Plan Review
On the agenda this evening is the approval of the Comprehensive Equity Plan review process. This is completed every 3-years and is designed to ensure policies, regulations and procedures are in compliance with fair and equitable practices. These practices are in effect for Board governance, professional development, affirmative action and staff hiring practices.
- AP Studio Art Show
Everyone is invited to this exhibit of the AP Art students’ final portfolios. You can see some of the AP work around the Ed Center, but when you see each student’s work displayed in a thematic way, it is astounding. Stop into the HS gym on Wednesday, May 29, from 6-8 pm.
- HS Academic Awards Program
The Senior Class Awards will be presented to our students on Friday, May 31 at 8 am. Congratulations to all.
