Elementary Dr. Seuss Theme
Second grade students made cards for nursing home patients.
1st Grade Valentine's Day
Each 1st grade class designed cards and wrote messages of care to members of our community for this Valentine's Day. The cards were distributed by the teachers to these community members: Hubbard Fire, Hubbard Police, Elmwood Assisted Living Home, the Hubbard Library and the VFW. The students were eager to share happiness and joy in our community.
Secret Life of Pets at HES
Students at Hubbard Elementary participated in the annual contest to tie into the High School art students’ larger than life papier mache sculptures. This year the theme for the papier mache was The Secret Life of pets and was based off of the recently released film. Large scale characters were created by students in Mr. MacMillan’s and Mrs. Lockovich’s High School Visual Art classes. Each year the elementary students look forward to the unveiling of the projects.
Mrs. Marino, Hubbard Elementary Visual Art Teacher asked students in grades kindergarten through fourth grade to spend time over their Thanksgiving break to create a drawing, painting, or sculpture of what they think their pet that they have or wish they had does while they are at school. Students were able to work with family members or on their own to complete projects. The voluntary project was turned in before Christmas break. Over a hundred students participated in the project.
Mr. MacMillan and Mrs. Lockovich’s art students worked to judge the elementary works and pass out awards to the winners. The High school also sponsored an essay contest where students could write about what they think their pet that they have or wish they had does when they are at school. Overall, the collaborative project was yet another a great success for the Hubbard Art Department and the students of the Hubbard Schools.
ES Holiday Concert
Prior to winter break, hundreds of proud parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and friends gathered at the Hubbard Auditorium to hear the students of Hubbard Elementary perform their annual winter concerts. Under the direction of Miss Danielle Aurandt, students in grades K-4 performed a variety of holiday songs and dances with a total of 5 concerts. These concerts gave the students the opportunity to perform as a group in front of a large audience and even speak individually. The students did a wonderful job and demonstrated the strength of our elementary music program and the importance it has to the overall development of our young students. Music at the elementary level helps develop language, reasoning, focus, and coordination skills. Through music, students also learn how to work together as a team and create a final product with a feeling of genuine accomplishment.
Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. Music is science, math, language, and physical education, but most importantly, music is ART. It is one of the most magical aspects of human life that shapes people and cultures from every part of the world. Music, however, does not need to make excuses for itself. As Emerson wrote, “Beauty is its own excuse for being.” Without music, our lives would be less whole, less human, less valuable, and less complete.
Hubbard Elementary School - Veterans Day
Welcome to Hubbard Elementary School!
Welcome to the start of an exciting year. We extend a warm greeting to all of our new students and parents and welcome back those who have been with us in the past.
The elementary school years are a particularly exciting time for students, staff, families, and the community. Our school community strives to instill in each child the excitement that comes with learning, where the bar is set high and academics are aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Our teachers and staff are highly qualified and committed to serving all aspects of each student, academically, emotionally and physically. The school prides itself in “Making Excellence a Tradition.” With the partnership of Home and School connection, we aim to have your children succeed in their academic endeavors. Working together will be our common focus. When decisions are made, they will be in the best interest of the children.
In addition to creating a welcoming environment for the students and their families the teachers will be teaching from the Ohio Common Core Learning Standards. These standards incorporate skill specific lessons, utilize cutting-edge materials, and technology based assessments to monitor student progress. These more rigorous standards are geared to college and career readiness and will be the driving focus in our classrooms.
I plan on working diligently with parents and the faculty to foster an atmosphere that promotes academic excellence, trust, respect and a true learning community. I strongly agree with the educational theory that a strong home/school relationship is a key component to an effective school. Your child is my top priority and I am honored to be working with the families, staff, and community of Hubbard to foster the education of our youth.
With Hubbard Pride,
Principal of HES
