“While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary.”

Student Achievment
Three HA seniors have signed on to play college athletics:~Jon Morrison~(University of Rhode Island baseball),~Nathan Kelley~(Castleton University baseball), and~Hannah Berard~(Widener University soccer). Congratulations to all of them.

Celebrating Black History Month
The HA English department will be hosting book displays in Ms. Camuso and Mr. Vreeland's rooms to showcase literature from famous African-American authors. Faculty hope that students will peruse these when they have time and try out a new author that they have not read before. The English department will also host a bulletin board in the hallways which identifies some famous authors, speakers and a historical timeline of significant events in black history.
HES 4D students are studying biographies of famous African Americans including: Sojourner Truth, Mohammed Ali, George Washington Carver, and Langston Hughes.~
Students in second grade have learned about George Washington Carver and Ruby Bridges. Students were fascinated to hear how Carver made more than 100 things from sweet~potatoes and more than 300 products from peanuts. Ruby's bravery impressed students and they were struck by images of guards escorting Ruby to and from her school building.

HES Events and News
HES Principal Search:~Parents, family members, and community members are invited to meet our candidates for the next HES principal on~Thursday, February 15th from 6 pm - 8 pm.~If you plan to attend, please send me an email. If you would like to ask the candidates a question, please include your question in the email.
Second grade news:~In the STEAM lab this week 2W celebrated the 100th day by building creative structures out of various materials. Final products included a a five story building made of only 100 index cards, a giant sphere made out of 100 toothpicks and 100 mini marshmallows, a campground scene made out of 100 straws, and a suspension bridge made from 100 Popsicle sticks.
Fifth grade news:~Did you know that the 100th day of fifth grade is also the 1000th day of school for fifth graders? At the end of 4th grade, current fifth graders completed 900 days of school, and thus after 100 days of fifth grade, they have completed 1000 days of school! In honor of this event, the fifth graders, in teams of 5 or 6, built toothpick structures of buildings around Hadley with 1000 toothpicks. They were quite creative and are displayed in the HES library.~ Check them out if you get a chance!

HA News and Events
Update on HA school-wide read,~I Am Malala -~In October Mr. Vreeland's creative writing class interviewed immigrants and wrote interviews about their experiences. In November, the English Department invited four speakers from the UMASS Center for International Education to speak to our students about their experiences with international education. Additionally, the Diversity Club held a screening of On the Way to School. In December the Diversity Club held a successful Eat for Education fundraiser which raised funds for girls' education. Plans for the remainder of the year are as follows:
  • February the library will have book displays with similar themes to~I am Malala, stories of immigration and refugees.~
  • March the Diversity Club will hold sessions for Women's History Month which will include conversations about Malala.~
  • The History Department will integrate topics pertaining to Pakistan into its curriculum in April and May.~
  • Also in May, the English Department and Diversity Club will screen David Letterman's~My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman~with Malala.~
  • Finally, in June, Ms. Camuso, as a representative of the English Department, will run a session for Multicultural Day. We hope that students have been enjoying and learning from the many varied experiences that we have developed to support our school-wide read,~I am Malala.
Message from the Health Services Team
Unlocking last week’s surprising fact
Last week we learned that when building resilience in young people, the relationships with parents are significant but so are relationships with other caring adults.~ Research has shown that improved resilience can result in improved learning.~ With this in mind, Hadley Public Schools has created a number of programs to ensure that all our students have relationships with caring adults.~
~
Surprising fact of the week
The Phi Delta Kappa Educational Foundation research indicates that when educators promote educational resilience in students whose life circumstance put them at risk of failure not only does it result in improved learning but it can result in “remarkable” academic achievement.
~
Resource of the week
Here’s one just for fun.~ See if you can spot some resilience building tips in this video from Kid President on Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (you can skip the ad):
~
Stay tuned to learn about activities in our schools that support resilience building and show our students that we care about them.
