Is your child in 3rd-5th grade and interested in being a part of the HFE STEAM Club?! The STEAM Club meets Mondays from 2:30-3:45 in the Media Center. All students who sign up will be put into a lottery and 40 names will be drawn for fall and 40 for spring. To sign up for the STEAM Club lottery, come visit our booth in the Media Center during Open House on Friday, August 9th. If you can't attend Open House, you can also sign up online from August 12th-August 16th by 3:00pm on the HFE website (not the EA website). Mrs. Strom and I will pull names for both semesters the following week and parents will be notified by Friday, August 23rd. Fall STEAM Club will begin after Labor Day. Spring STEAM Club will begin after winter break. Come see us at our booth during Open House.

HEARDS FERRY ELEMENTARY OFFICIALLY AN IB WORLD SCHOOL
Heards Ferry Elementary is eager to announce we are officially recognized as an International Baccalaureate World School!!!! Our mission is to develop self-motivated, globally minded thinkers through inquiry and reflection. We developed strategically a program of inquiry that enables students to take responsibility for their learning, think critically and become empowered to take action in the community. The Character Education program, Cookies for Character, was developed to encourage students to exhibit the attributes of the learner profile. The attributes of the learner profile are Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, and Reflective. We are proud to offer Spanish as a second language to students in grades 1-5. We believe this program is an essential step towards developing compassionate,lifelong learners to help the world become a more peaceful place!
We would like to also congratulate High Point Elementary and Lake Forest Elementary for also becoming authorized IB World Schools. All three schools feed into and Ridgeview Middle School and Riverwood High School. This creates the first PK-12 Feeder Pattern IB Cluster in Fulton County Schools.
We would like to thank all stakeholders for your enthusiasm, dedication, support! It takes a village!
