The district has used a total of four inclement/emergency days. Since we only have three days built into the district calendar, we must add another day. Therefore, school will be in session on Wednesday, April 12th. This day will be a two hour early dismissal in place of the two hour early dismissal that was canceled on our last snow day.
Rock 'n' Roll Reading Night 2017 - A New Format Begins!
Rock 'n' Roll Reading night is one of those events that makes Hereford Elementary School a special place to learn and grow. This year, the format has changed with the input of our PTFS and our grades three, four and five student councils.
Why do we do Rock 'n' Roll Reading Night?We want to:
Celebrate the Hereford Elementary students that have worked hard to complete their fall and winter reading logs by creating an evening of fun activities with our local businesses and student organizations;
Provide an opportunity for our local businesses and student organizations to develop and support relationships with our families; and
Showcase community-based opportunities available to our students so they may become involved with structured activities beyond the normal school day.
Who comes to Rock 'n' Roll Reading Night? Only eligible Hereford K-5 students who complete their fall and winter reading logs will receive an invitation. Those children must bring an adult to participate in the evening. Siblings or other family members cannot attend unless they have completed their logs and have received an invitation.
What will happen at Rock 'n' Roll Reading night? Invitees and their adult chaperone are welcome to bring their own dinner to start the evening. The meal will be held in our cafeteria. As dinner winds down, the real fun begins! We will have a DJ, a photo booth and a petting zoo to name a few of the exciting activities. Most activities will be located outside on the playground area to provide a carnival-like atmosphere.
