Last week author Brian Lies visited the Maquan School to speak with students about writing and illustrating. Brian shared his experiences about writing and rewriting. His message reflected the growth mindset and Mr. Lies reiterated this with students multiple times when sharing his belief that "practice makes better." The Brian Lies performance was made possible through a grant from the Hanson Cultural Council.
Due to the generous funding from PTO, grade two students enjoyed a performance from Young Audiences last Thursday. Students, who are involved in biography studies in the classroom, were able to watch a performance about Ben Franklin's life. The performance would not have been possible without the funding from the PTO. Hanson PTO is currently working on another fundraiser, the April raffle calendar. This Friday, March 24th will be the last day to pass in raffle tickets for the April raffle calendar.
