This testing will begin Monday, March 22, 2021 and continue through Friday, April 9, 2021 for the Language Ar...

Instead, the awesome teachers at Hocking Hills Elementary came up with the idea for a Honk Out. We request 4th grade participants to arrive at the school by 3:00...
Mrs. Cassady's Second Grade class celebrated the 100th day of school today with cookies that made the number 100. Why is this good learning? Grade 2 has been working on the following two standards all year, and they have even gone beyond 100 in problem solving.
