It was "the best day ever" according to some of the students! They have been learning about the letter H for helicopter. Click here to view photos from the day.

September is National Childhood Hunger Awareness month. The students at East Hardin Elementary School rallied together and brought in 1,933 canned food items in five days. The collected food was given to Mr. and Mrs. Beckham at Our Daily Bread Ministries to be given to needy children and seniors in our community through our backpack program to help feed the hungry. Mrs. Kathy Stricklin's 4th grade class brought in 239 cans, and Mrs. Amanda White's 2nd grade brought in 179 cans. Both of these classes earned a special pizza party! Many thanks to all who participated and to Nurse Mary for heading up this project. East Hardin - You rock!!! Click here to view pictures of the winning classes.
