Kindergarteners in Room 129 at the Hansen School read Scissors and Needle, a story about a clever witch who gets creative with a pair of scissors and a magical needle and thread, using cut-out shapes to create everything she needs for a comfortable life. Inspired by the book, students made a class quilt, the patchwork design made up of individual panels each student created.
Hansen School students made cards for veterans, decorating the front of the card and writing a message inside expressing gratitude for their service. These cards were given to the Stoughton Redevelopment Authority to display for the Veterans Day parade on November 11. The Redevelopment Authority office is located across from the Town Hall, which is on the parade route. First grade students are pictured here with some of the cards that were made.
5th grade students at the Hansen School are pictured here after completing a challenge to make the longest paper chain they could using just one sheet of construction paper (along with scissors and tape).
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Baeta visited the Hansen Elementary School, greeting students as they arrived. Here he is with Mrs. Raeke's first grade class at the start of the day.

SPS elementary students (and their families) from all of our elementary schools are invited to attend these author events.
Our 5th grade students have been enjoying hands-on science lessons with SEED, Inc. (Science & Engineering Education Development).
