  • 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!

District Announcements

  • Drive-In Graduation Events Canceled (5/26/20)

    May 26, 2020, Yakima, WA - At this time, the Yakima School District regrets that we have canceled drive-in graduation events for Eisenhower, Davis, and Stanton.  In recent communications with the Yakima Health District and guidelines set forth by the governor, we have determined that any celebration, other than virtual, is highly unlikely. The District, in conjunction with high school leadership at Eisenhower, Davis, Stanton and Yakima Online, will not facilitate or support a drive-in or virtual watch party, due to the growing concern of the number of infections in Yakima County and our lingering Phase 1 reopening status.

    While the district is still hopeful that a June 13 procession down Yakima Avenue to honor our graduates could happen, there are growing doubts, due to the status of Yakima County as a COVID-19 hotspot. This processional is something that we know our graduating seniors deserve but it may not be possible. We hope to provide updated information on the possibility of the June 13 processional on June 1.

    Class of 2020 Seniors – please check your specific high school’s website for more graduation details. www.YakimaSchools.org

  • June 17 is the last day of school for YSD students

    According to guidance from OSPI, unless districts can show that student learning was NOT impacted by the emergency closures (either loss of instructional days, loss of instructional hours per day, or both) districts are required to add five (5) days at the end of the school year. For the Yakima School District, that means June 17th will be the final day of distance learning for the 2019-20 school year. Support will be available to students via distance learning through June 17.

  • Be Counted! 2020 Census

    Census 2020 The census is a way for our community to seek the necessary financial support from the government that it needs.  Our schools depend on the census count for accurate program funding. In mid-March, you will receive an invitation to participate in the census from the Census Bureau. Be sure to count everyone in your household - even infants.  Responding to the census is the law, however, it is against the law for the Census Bureau to inquire about personal information such as immigration status.  It is illegal for the Census Bureau to pass on your contact information to other government entities. They use your contact info, such as your name and address, to know if you have already been counted. Once you have responded, you will no longer receive notices from the Census Bureau and a census worker will not come to your home.  If you have any questions, we have put together videos and information for you online at www.YakimaSchools.org/2020census
