Updating elementary schools
Gardner Elementary is also one of five Blue Ribbon finalists this year, which goes to the best school in the state of Kansas.There were no tears Thursday, but they are expecting a lot more emotion Friday when the kindergartners come to class for the first time.The building that now houses Hawley School was built from donations to Newtown by Mary Elizabeth Hawley in 1921, and was in fact named after her parents.It was a modern building for the time, having as it did central heating, an auditorium, a chemistry laboratory, and fireproofing; however nowadays it lacks facilities with respect to other schools in the district, such as central air conditioning.Elementary education starts at the age of five or six, depending on the particular state and whether a kindergarten (K) year is provided.
Together, we can make Earl Harris Elementary a great place for all children to learn.To qualify for kindergarten a child must be five years old on or before a ‘cut-off’ date, e.g. Usually a child must be enrolled in kindergarten or first grade in the calendar year in which he turns six.Elementary school, which is almost always co-educational (mixed boys and girls), is usually attended from the age of 5 or 6 until 11 (grades K to 6), when students go on to a middle or junior high school.The Hawley building was re-used as an elementary school, serving kindergarten to grade 8.The high school moved from Queen Street in 1970, and the Queen Street building became what is today Newtown Middle School, with the Hawley elementary school reduced to serving kindergarten to grade 4.
