Hodgesville Elementary School started the school year with an open house Aug. 21.
The school received a landscape upgrade over the summer and everyone was pleased with the improved look of the school and newly painted lines on the parking lot area. Everyone also received an explanation of the changes for when parents leave students in the mornings and pick them up at the end of the day. The new plan is designed to ensure a safer school and a more efficient way for parents to bring their children to school and pick them up.
The theme for the open house was "Passport for Fun," and all the students received a passport paper listing another country or a state teachers had visited. Every doorway was decorated with information from a different country or state, and the children went to every room to visit and received a sticker on their passport for that location. In their own classroom, they got to explore and ask questions.
Hodgesville Elementary School’s open house with a ‘Passport for Fun’ serves as a fun way for students and parents to kick off the school year.
Participants enjoyed visiting the cafeteria for a snack, a chance for the door prize and a good way to start out the new year.
