This month, students at Hayshire Elementary have been learning about the lifecycle of chickens by incubating eggs of their own. During this lesson, students learned hands-on about the life cycle, embryology, and even how to care for baby chicks. We are happy to report that Mrs. Rankin's class had 15 chicks hatch and following the completion of the lesson the chicks will be transported to their forever home on a local farm.
In the spirit of March Madness, our readers at Hayshire Elementary will be voting on their favorite book on the bracket. Each week the students will cast their vote until a Grand Champ book is selected for the hallway.

Each classroom received a bear to assist these students with learning and practicing these social skills to succeed socially and academically.
The smiling faces show our students enjoyed activities from learning how to work positively together, be a problem-solver, do the right thing (even when no one is watching), take care of others, and take care of themselves.
