What is up friends and family (my older kids know I say that all the time when I talk to the older groups), we’ve been out of school for two whole weeks now, and I miss you all so much.
Starting this week, it is our goal to begin offering homework help via Google Hangout sessions with Ms. Hayley, Mr. John, or Mr. David. We can help you guys with any homework or classwork that you’re struggling with at home. You can also chat with us in hangouts if you have questions or want to talk to anybody, play the ABC game, or just miss talking to us!
On our blog, there is a tutoring page with youtube links to instructional videos for some of the homework that’s been sent home. There is also a google request form for anyone who needs the one-on-one help. We are available to help from 12-4 on Monday-Friday while schools are closed. Get your parent’s permission and chat with us on Google Hangouts! You can contact us by typing elc_hp or Hardin Park ELC into the chat box!! Talk to y'all soon!

Hey hi hello after school!
Today I want to encourage everyone to participate in the scavenger hunt that Mr. John put together. It’s really cool, and is a great way for you and your family to get outside. It’s supposed to be really nice this weekend, so this is a way to get some fresh air and exercise outside while you take a break from your work at home! You have to do the pages in order but can rearrange the trails however they make the most sense for your family! Make sure parents and kids work together on this one!
I went on four of the trails with Mr. John, Ms. Alex and Ms. Lydia and they were tons of fun! I have one more trail to do tomorrow before I can move on to pages three and four! We were actually much more put together than I thought we would be! I forgot to wear converse (the one time I actually wore cute shoes), and got water in my shoes, and I almost fell in mud, but it was all good! I learned I would not be able to count 500 feet without technology and I need to improve my spatial awareness, but my phone figured it out (thank's to the kids who showed me the measurement app on my phone when we did World Record Day).
Don’t forget to send us pictures of you & your families on the trails. Maybe I will get to see you (from a distance) on trail five tomorrow :)
Miss you all!
Ms. Hayley :)
If y’all haven't come to Hardin Park for dinner (between 4-6) to pick up some free meals, you need to come see us! :) Ms. Hayley will be outside helping hand out meals and
tonight is baked spaghetti!! You will also get breakfast for the next day! The entire school has been helping our awesome cafeteria staff make you guys lots of really awesome meals! After school donated most of our snacks & extra books to be given out with meals. I will be out there showcasing my gymnastic skills and hitch kick abilities. It takes a villiage y’all, come see yours at work!!
Its day two friends
We spent all of last week cleaning toys, bins, centers, rugs, storage, and our office!! We cleaned literally every toy and every single thing the kids could have ever touched. We organized our all of books, and made a resource corner full of books that are educational. We shampooed the rugs & made some changes to the 5 O’Clock Cart! Everything is cleaned & organized! Let us know what kinds of things y’all are doing at home. We miss everyone so much!
Things I miss from after school:

Welcome to the after school blog! We are going to keep y’all updated on all the stuff we are doing here at the school to prepare for you guys to come back. We are also going to be posting links to activities and things that you can do while you are learning from home. I miss you all so much and I can’t wait for all of you to come back so I can hug every single one of you again. Keep checking the page for extra posts & links. Let me know if there’s anything that you miss from after school & we can figure out how to get it online. I love and miss you all!!! See ya when school gets back.
