Halecreek Elementary

Principal Letter

Having finished my third year as Halecreek principal and twenty-first year at Halecreek Elementary, I am even more excited than ever about the great work being done at our school! Our veteran staff members have worked extremely hard over the last two years to develop a deeper knowledge in both common core math and ELA, which has had a positive impact on student achievement. Additionally, Halecreek is fortunate to offer an annual after school program in several areas such as Lego Robotics, Science Investigation, and Art.

Halecreek Raises Money for Heart Health

Jump Rope for Heart is a program that veteran teacher Gail Milspaugh has stood behind for more than 20 years. The program benefits the American Heart Association, whose main mission is to prevent heart disease and stroke. “ I want all of my students to have healthy hearts. The AHA provides health related resources that I use in my physical education classes,” said Milspaugh. The students pledged more than $15-hundred dollars, the money will go toward heart health research. Any student who made a donation was invited to the gym to jump rope and tally how many leaps they made in a minute.

Staff Bring Kids to Work

Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day has been in existence for over two decades. The day is designed to enrich the lives of boys and girls, by exposing them to what a parent or mentor does in their profession. Staff at Halecreek Elementary proved that they share this vision by bringing their children and family members to their school workplace. The goal is to help kids discover career possibilities, so that they can meet their full potential. The staff that participated includes: Ms. Fuss, Ms. Carter, Ms. Schiappacasse, Ms. Markavich,

Congrats, Mrs. Hall! You're Jay Towers in the Morning's Teacher of the Week!

Mrs. Hall has been an amazing 3rd grade teacher so far to my daughter! She is kind and very informational and focuses on every student and their higher learning. My daughter has become great at math and English due to her methods. She even taught me a new math trick that I wish I knew when I was in school! What stood out the most for me though is she got every one of her students a scarf she made herself and gloves for Christmas! She's an amazing teacher and definitely deserves an award for best teacher! 

Students Receive Backpacks

Kristen Fuss the principal at Halecreek Elementary understands that the success of her students is partially determined by them having necessary resources. That is why State Representative Erica Geiss, along with AT&T Representatives Robert Jones and Gregory Clark stepped up to donate 50 backpacks filled with school supplies to her students. “Our students were so excited about receiving the new backpacks and supplies. It may seem small but it’s important for them to have writing utensils, paper, glue and tape.
