Mount Hope's art show was another huge success! Classical music played through the intercom as students and their families enjoyed the work created by our very own Huskies! Students enjoyed pointing out their work to their friends and families as much as they did becoming part of the work with the photo opportunities around the building. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate our artists, and Mrs. Frank for her guidance in helping students create the work as well as setting up the displays!

Students in Mrs. Stephens' 2nd grade class went on a shopping spree while learning about economics! Students created their own items to "sell" and set up shop around the classroom. They then shopped for their favorite items and kept up with their remaining balance to make sure they didn't overspend!

Excitement filled the air at MHE as students eagerly gathered to witness the rare celestial spectacle of a solar eclipse. Armed with protective eyewear, they gazed skyward in wonder, marveling at the gradual dance of the moon obscuring the sun. Students across the playground exchanged awe-filled whispers and shared their observations with wide-eyed fascination. For these young learners, experiencing the eclipse was not just a lesson in astronomy but a magical moment that ignited curiosity and sparked imaginations.
