Below are the names of the Mountaineer Summer Reading Program (ASU supported) winners for Watauga County. These students were the top readers in their grade bracket for all of Watauga County Schools. Hardin Park is represented in three of the four divisions.
Hardin Park will be taking part in the National Walk/Bike to School Day on October 7th! On that morning, students, parents and staff are invited to meet at the SECU (State Employee's Credit Union) behind the school and either ride their bike or walk to school to start the day! Registration begins at 6:45am that morning, bikers depart at 7:15 and walkers leave at 7:20. This event helps students to have fun, build healthier habits, promote a cleaner environment, support safety and boost their sense of community. We would love to have a huge turnout, so please try to take part in this fun activity!
This is what phase 1 of our playground will look like. Additional pieces will be added as funds become available. Please consider donating to our inclusive playground fund. Thank You!
NORTH CAROLINA CROSSING SIGNAL
Effective January 1, 2016 North Carolina school districts will be using a standard crossing signal to help protect students when they need to cross the street to board the bus or after exiting the bus. The school bus driver will first hold palm out indicating that students should WAIT before stepping into the roadway. After the driver has checked for safety, he or she will then give students a “thumbs up” indicating that the students should then check for traffic and then cross the street. The driver will indicate the direction to walk by pointing with his or her index finger.Students should view this important video that explains the new bus crossing signal.

Dear Hardin Park Families,
Under legislation adopted by the NC General Assembly, each public school in NC will be assigned a School Performance Grade this year. It’s important to understand the new School Performance Grades and this letter will help explain them.
For K-8 schools, the grade is based on the 2013-14 results for End-of-Grade (EOG) reading and mathematics tests for grades 3-8, EOG science tests for grades 5 and 8, and the End-of-Course (EOC) Math I test for students who take Math I in middle school. The grade is calculated using a formula that gives 80% weight to student proficiency and 20% to students’ academic growth.
Although the state’s formula is heavily weighted toward proficiency, it’s worth noting that most educators believe academic growth is usually a better measure of school quality. There is no perfect measure of school performance, but academic growth does ask a better question to evaluate schools: how much progress did students make during the year? How much did their skills and knowledge improve after an additional year of instruction? Not every student will achieve at the same levels in all areas, but every student can learn and grow, and it is the responsibility of schools to help each student learn and grow as much as possible.
With that in mind, we are pleased to note that our school exceeded the state academic growth targets for 2013-14. This success reflects the hard work of students and teachers and the support they receive from school families and our many community partners. Thank you for your help in achieving this result.
Our School Performance Grade for 2013-14 is “B.” The grade on the reading section was a “B” and the grade on the math section was a “B.” We will use the data behind these grades to focus our attention on areas that need improvement and to further strengthen performance in areas where our students are already succeeding at a high level. We are committed to continuous improvement in instruction to help our students grow and learn to their highest potential.
If you would like to see more information about School Performance Grades and how they are calculated, you may want to review the PowerPoint presentation available on the news and data page of the Watauga County Schools website.
Please also note that the state is continuing to publish annual School Report Cards. School Report Cards provide more detailed information about state test results, faculty qualifications, and other factors for each school and school district in North Carolina. A link to this information is posted on the school website and a printed copy will be available on request from the school office.
We are grateful for your continued support as we partner with you to help your child achieve his or her full potential. If you have questions about School Performance Grades, School Report Cards, or other school topics, please let us know.
