  • Ms. Paige's Class

    Last week Ms. Paige’s class talked about recycling in a unit about school helpers and working together and sharing responsibilities. Last Friday, the class walked around the whole back part of the school and picked up trash.

    They were able to fill 10 Walmart bags full of trash!

  • 4-H

    The 4-H club at HEM is working hard this holiday season.  They are currently holding a food drive for the food bank. This food drive will run through Nov. 20th.  Students are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items. The food can be placed within one of the two barrels that are in the front of the school by the office.   If both barrels are full by the end of the food drive, Mr. Labbe’ has agreed to kiss a Farm Animal!

     Next, the 4-H club will be going to Heritage Manor Nursing home on December 5th to sing Christmas carols and to bring in goody bags for each of the residents.  They need help in gathering the items that the residents are in need of, such as Chap stick, hand lotion, and a full box of Kleenex.  All items can be brought to Ms. Strahan or Ms. Campbell's classroom.

  • IB Middle Years Programme

    As of September 1, 2015, Hammond Eastside Elementary Magnet School is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Hammond Eastside Elementary Magnet School believes is important for our students.

    *Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme and the IB CP. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

    For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org

    Darlene Hammer, acting Principal, was informed of this excellent news on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 by the IBO and is extremely pleased to officially begin our MYP endeavors.
