testing Ready for testing !

To help alleviate some of the pressures of the upcoming state K-PREP assessment, Hickman County Elementary hosted a “Stress Free Day” for its students the day before the test.

Students were able to participate in fun activities such as face-painting, kickball, volleyball, Twister, and balloon races, and treats such as snow cones and popcorn.  The day ended with each homeroom performing their group’s chant, created at one of the stations, and the unveiling of the newest Proficient-Distinguished banner hanging in the HCES gym.

As students entered the building Tuesday, they were surprised with a make-over of the school to a beach theme.   The entire HCES staff stayed after school on Monday to redecorate the school with this year’s beach theme and slogan of “Seas the Day.”  Both student entry-ways and the school’s hallways were given the beach touch, drawing oohs and ahs from students.
