"Jones Motor Company is proud to sponsor Teacher of the Month! This month our winner is Denise Phillips, Librarian at East Hardin Elementary School. Denise, who usually delivers all the surprises, was very surprised today as her Pre-K & Kindergarten students gathered to celebrate the award with her. Denise "goes above and beyond to encourage her students to love to read." Denise, you are an inspiration to us all. We are so proud to have you as a part of our community and a leader in the education of our students. Here's to you. Congrats!"-Jones Motor Company of Savannah, TN. Click here to view pictures.
Peyton Stricklin, fourth grader at East Hardin, stands in front of the "Loose Tooth" bulletin board in Nurse Mary's clinic. He has lost three teeth already this year and leads several other students who have lost only one. He is still sporting that nice smile. Check Peyton out here.
Mrs. Stephanie McGowen's Pre K class welcomed several grandparents to East Hardin on Friday, September 11 to celebrate Grandparents Day. After a short introductory talk where she explained the importance of Grandparents being in the lives of their grandchildren, a light snack of cheese and crackers, grapes, cookies and Hawaiian punch or water was enjoyed by all. Each student presented their grandparent with a poem titled, "A Grandchild's Hand" which was accompanied with their own hand print. Click here to view pictures from the day.
The students at East Hardin will be participating in a food drive to benefit Our Daily Bread Food Pantry on the dates of September 15 - 18 (Tuesday through Friday). "We collected 1,933 cans last year and have set 2,200 cans as our goal this year", according to Nurse Mary Warren who is heading up the food drive. This is a great cause and will directly benefit several children at East Hardin. Please help your child to collect cans to bring to school each day during the competition. The winning class will receive a bowling trip.
The following is a message from our guidance counselor, Mrs. Lindsey Alexander. To help ease back-to-school butterflies: Write down the need-to-know information to help your child remember details such as what time class starts and ends, teachers' and/or bus drivers' names. Use a wall calendar or personal planner to record when assignments are due, tests will be given, extracurricular practices and rehearsals will be held. Have them organize and set out what they need the night before (homework and books in their backpacks in their backpacks by the door and clothes laid out, ready to go).

This year, the East Hardin King and Queen will be based on who turns in the most Box Tops. Each Box-Top will count for 1 point. The top boy and girl in the school will be named the King and Queen. They will also receive $50.00 each. Students may start collecting box-tops now, but do not turn them into your homeroom teacher until September 28, 2015.
