  • Sock-tober

    Posted by 5th grader, Antonio Castillo, NHE Student Council President on 10/29/2019

    Why a sock drive?  We all know how good a brand new pair of scoks feel, especially for those on their feet out in the cold.  Nob Hill Elementary School competed against Garfiend Elementary School to see who could bring in the most socks to donate to the Union Gospel Mission. Garfield Elementary School donated 1005 pair of scoks; while Nob Hill Elementary School brought in 1775 pair of socks. One 5th grade Nob Hill student said, "Not only is it fun to compete against another school, but it was also fun to compete agaist other classrooms in our school.  It feels good to give back to our community and more important to help one another out."

    Way to go Garfield Elementary and Nob Hill Elementary!

  • Nob Hill First Annual Math Bowl

    Posted by Erin Thomas on 6/10/2019

    5th Grade Practice Test

    5th Grade Student Practice Test

    Nob Hill Elementary held their first annual Math Bowl in April.  The purpose of the Math Bowl was to encourage study at home and the memorization of grade-level math facts.  Each student received flashcards to take home and practice with their parents.  Students also had the opportunity to practice online in preparation for the Math Bow competition, and 71 students took advantage of this opportunity.  During the Math Bowl, which was held online, each class first warmed up with a practice test, and then the students competed against each other in identifying correct answers in the shortest amount of time on the qualifying test.  The top three students from each class then competed as a grade level in the final round.  The winners, who received a ribbon, goody bag, and recognition at the student of the month assembly, were:

    Kindergarten:  1st place:  Stella Campos; 2nd place:  Adrian Ulloa; 3rd place:  Jeannine Ferry

    1st grade:  1st place:  Conner Newman; 2nd place:  Nalah Bellah; 3rd place:  Julia Cabezas; Honorable Mention: Sloane Cavallo (perfect score)

    2nd grade:  1st place:  Edgar Lozano; 2nd place:  Joseue Guzman; 3rd place:  Tadashi Arzola

    3rd grade:  1st place: Delaeny Dewitt; 2nd place:  Tegan Fairbairn; 3rd place:  Rolando Maciel-Garza

    4th grade:  1st place: Joshua Whitney; 2nd place: Rylie Carter; 3rd place:  Quinn Marang

    5th grade:  1st place:  Connor Mansfield; 2nd place:  Maximus Martinez; 3rd place:  Adelaide Loeser

    We are so proud of all of the students and parents who supported this work toward meeting grade-level math standards!

    Posted by Erin Thomas on 2/20/2019

    MACK STEPHENSON WINS NOB HILL ELEMENTARY NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC GEOBEE

    Local Students Compete in the First Round of National Competition

    YAKIMA, WA JANUARY 30, 2019—161 students from Nob Hill Elementary participated in the school-level competition of the National Geographic GeoBee on 1-30-19. Mack Stephenson, a 5th-grade student, won first place, with Paige Gasseling, a 4th-grade student, winning second place and Ryker Hatley, a 4th-grade student, finishing in third place.

    GEOBEE

    The school-level competition is the first round in the annual National Geographic GeoBee, a geography competition designed to inspire and reward students’ curiosity about the world.  Questions cover not only geography but also cultures, physical features, history, and earth science.

    The National Geographic Society developed the GeoBee in 1989 in response to concern about

    the lack of geographic knowledge among young people in the United States. Over more than

    three decades, 120 million students have learned about the world through participation in the

    GeoBee.

    School champions, including Mack Stephenson, will take an online qualifying test; up to

    100 of the top test scorers in each state then become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee.

    The winners of the State GeoBees receive an all-expenses-paid trip to National Geographic

    Society headquarters in Washington, D.C., next May to participate in the GeoBee national

    championship, competing for cash prizes, scholarships, and an all-expenses-paid Lindblad

    expedition to the Galápagos Islands aboard the National Geographic Endeavour ll. Learn more

    at www.natgeobee.org.

     

    In addition to the GeoBee, National Geographic also offers classroom resources, student

    experiences and professional development opportunities for educators.
