Hardin-Houston's annual Spelling Bee was held on December 10 in the commons, where forty-five students in grades 4-8 participated. After sixteen rounds of competition, seventh grader, Hannah Hollinger emerged as the school's champion speller. Mariah Booher who is a sixth grader was second place, and in third place was Collin Walker. The Regional Spelling Bee is the next step for this group in Lima to be held sometime after the first of the year. Congratulations and good luck to our spellers as they move on.

AmeriGas School Days Program
Thanks to AmeriGas Propane, we are beginning a donation program that benefits the school district. The School Days program allows district residents to turn in their original propane receipts to the school district, and submit them to AmeriGas Propane for a donation. For every gallon shown on those original receipts, our school will earn $.02. Now, that might not seem like a lot of money, but it adds up quickly.
Original receipts can be submitted to the school office anytime, and we will do the rest. Please help us help our school. If you have any questions, please contact Amy Ayers at 295-3010 ext. 3002.
