Recently at Hiawatha Elementary School, each first grade class performed a creative, choreographed dance for an audience of kindergarten students and their fellow first graders as part of the Circle of Dance program.

During the program, students learned essential dance skills, such as balance, coordination and flexibility, while memorizing each of their individualized dance routines. Working together through eight practices, students also learned the importance of teamwork and collaboration while working to perfect their routines.  

Hiawatha Book Initiative Unites School Community

Students, faculty and staff at Hiawatha Elementary School recently participated in a buildingwide reading initiative that fostered a collective love for learning through the Andrew Clements book, “Frindle.” 

One Book, One School is an annual initiative at Hiawatha that provides each student and staff member with a copy of the same book to read. This year’s book, “Frindle,” is about a boy who renames a pen a “frindle” and it eventually becomes a new word in the dictionary. 

In celebration of the initiative, Hiawatha hosted a family event on Feb.28 organized by librarian Kim Walker and art teacher Nicole Healy where students and their family members created invisible ink, bookmarks and made new words in addition to other engaging activities.
