Going Green at Red Hawk Elementary


 

Since 2010, Red Hawk Elementary has been yearly awarded the Green School Environmental Stewardship Award issued by the KISD. This is based on Michigan legislation that encourages schools to participate in environmentally-focused activities. In order to be certified as a Green School, staff and students at Red Hawk had to qualify in areas of recycling, energy saving, environmental learning, and ecological activities. A school is eligible to receive a Green School, Emerald School, or Evergreen School Designation if the school or students perform a required number of activities. In March of 2015, Red Hawk staff and students exceeded expectations by qualifying for the more prestigious Emerald School Award bestowed by the State of Michigan and the KISD.   We are proud to be Red Hawks!

Pi Day at Red Hawk Elementary


CSPS-Pi-Day-at-RHE

Pi Day was celebrated at Red Hawk Elementary with a day of math games, contests, computations, memorizations, calculations, recitations, celebrations, creative Pi shirts, and eating of pie! In Mr. Verwys’s Advanced Math, three students earned certificates for memorizing the most digits in Pi. Taking 3rd place was Emma Earnest with 104 Digits, 2nd place was Hailey Begeman with 136 digits, and in 1st place was Logan Douglas with an amazing 163 digits! The top school winner was a student in Mr. Gariepy’s Advanced Math class. Daniel Vaugn memorized an astounding 171 digits beyond the decimal point in Pi! Congratulations to our students for going above and beyond in their learning.

How better to conclude a day of Pi than with fresh pie? Parents were asked to bring in fruit pies as part of the celebration. Forty-five delicious pies were brought in and our Student Leadership Council served slices to students, staff, and the parent volunteers who helped throughout the day.

A Step in the Right Direction at Red Hawk Elementary


CSPS-Step-in-the-Right-Direction-web

April Stevens, Principal

Students are taking a step in the right direction by performing random acts of kindness at Red Hawk. Names of the students caught in the act are written on “shoes” and placed around the perimeter of the hallways. Currently, there are over 400 shoes walking along the Red Hawk walls. Teachers (and even our principal!) are stepping up by wearing the red Converse shoes on Early Release days.

March Battle of the Books Madness


by Karen Tackmann, Red Hawk Teaching Coach

 

Are you like many people in the United States, consumed by college basketball, March Madness?  This spring Red Hawk Elementary combined two of our favorite things (sports and reading) to create March Battle of the Books Madness.  Eighteen books getting judge by the biggest fans and the harshest critics of books for kids – 6th grade students!  Every morning we anticipate who will win and move on to the next round.  We discuss, vote, cheer, moan, and discuss a little more.

Battle of the Books is an accelerated reading program in which students read 5 – 16 books and come together to discuss and test their knowledge of the books they have read.  The competitions (battles) are similar in style to the TV series, Family Feud.  On May 14, students will be randomly placed in teams of four to compete in eight preliminary rounds of battle with the final battle taking place May 18.  The suspense is mounting and so are the piles of books the 6th grade students are reading!
