Hartsfield Elementary School


Moving on back to last week's visit to Hartsfield Elementary School and our JGF 🤝 kindergarten classroom connection through TalChamber w/ Ms. Crimbley and her SUPER Fit Kids!

Each year, our coaches, family & friends adopt a family for the holidays - gift giving and more. This year, we chose to spread-our-love of gift giving, more like SURPRISE-giving and giving the gift of FUN FITNESS adventure & more to the boys & girls in Ms. Crimbley’s kindergarten class. They all just LOVED their gifts of books, puzzles, arts ‘n crafts, and gift cards. And, Alexis C. Gaston - Health and Fitness Coach & Jen Bricker Simpson, Health and Fitness Coach had SO. MUCH. FUN. just get-ting fit with the kids in their classroom.
Happy Christmas & Merry Holidays in our local community.

PS: take a look at the poster/sign they made for their front door.
"Be NICE to each OTHER. It's really all that MATTERS."

Hartsfield Elementary School TAG students had a lesson on chemical reactions.
Mrs. Hagan's TAG students at Oak Ridge Elementary, Astoria Park Elementary, and Hartsfield Elementary School have been working on chemical reactions.
Providing consistency and love for our students is something LCS teachers do every day.
Creating relationships and memories continues despite the pandemic.

If you happen to see one of your former teachers getting groceries or about town, make sure to let them know how much they mean to you.

Being remembered by former students means so much to Erika Clark at Hartsfield Elementary School
She started as an intern at Hartsfield and has been there 25 years now. Over the years she has built relationships with thousands of students who regularly pop back into her life. “I go in Publix and students smile and say hey Ms. Clark, remember me?” she said bashfully. “When I’m out with my own family and students stop me it gives me a warm feeling that they remember me and in some way I touched their life. Mrs. Clark added, “To know that you can make a difference in their lives is what gets me up every morning, and I’m a proud Hawk at Hartsfield."

For Nancy Oakley, Hartsfield has become the definition of family.
Her children all attended Hartfield, and she also served as PTO President.
While being an active parent at the school, she decided to become a teacher.
And that’s just what she did, and for the last 25 years she has been teaching and loving the students at Hartsfield. “I love the family atmosphere here,” she said. “My three sons are in their 30’s and Hartsfield has become my extended family."

Rudean Rodgers also shares a love of Hartsfield and is completing 35 years of service and will retire this year. “From day one, I didn’t really want to go anywhere else and I made Hartsfield my home.” She admits she will miss her coworkers tremendously. "Even though this is my last year and I'm ready to retire, I wish I had more time with my fellow employees. My heart will always belong to Hartsfield." ❤️
You are all invited to these FREE events (outside) coming up soon!
What happens at school during the summer? Hartsfield Elementary School Principal Dr. Rhonda Blackwell-Flanagan is busy with construction on her new Family Resource Center. She has a gift of seeing potential in many things and explained, "I'm a visionary and when I start imagining, I start creating things that happen...and this came to fruition and it's going to be so cool!" Dr. Flanagan believes that parents are critically important to the success of Hartsfield. She plans to dedicate the room to her parents during a ceremony in early August.
Running into Monday!!!

Our 4th grade learners are LOVING decimals and fractions! "Can decimals be my homework?!" They asked, excited for their homework! It's even better when you can use your desk as your nonconventional workspace, too. We are so proud of how knowledgeable our learners are at Hartsfield.

Here is a good question: If dinosaurs came back, what would they do? Our learners used their creative minds in art class to create scenes with dinosaurs in modern times. They thought of cities, farms, jungles, and more for their dinosaur friends to roam in.

During the month of March, our learners will be focused on the Learner Profile Attribute "Open Minded". An Open Minded learner knows that all people are different. They listen to the points of view of others and consider many possibilities before making a decision. They celebrate the differences that make all people unique.

Ask your learner how they are open minded at home and at school.

In addition to that, our dress up days were so fun! Learners all over campus dressed up with themes such as Kings and Queens, wearing what makes them feel like royalty. What an amazing week and Black History Month!

Another huge thank you to Cobb Middle School for also visiting Hartsfield to inspire our 5th graders for their soon-to-be middle school journey. We love how excited our learners are to continue on their education and experience the amazing programs available at Cobb. They showed off their variety of classes they offer including STEM, band, agriculture and more!


Next week is Black History Month Spirit Week! We have a great week of activities planned and can't wait to see how our learners respond to the daily themes.


This was such a fantastic opportunity for our learners. Thank you Title I LCS!

The Hartsfield Hawks had a STEM-tastic time during Wednesday’s Mobile STEM Lab. Families discussed and learned about various STEM careers. After learning about density, families were tasked with assembling an ocean robot and making sure that their robot floated. After ensuring that their robots floated, families practiced balancing their robot by adding weight to create sinking and floating behavior. Families were able to modify the weight and retest their robots.

Last week, the Jack Hadley Black History Museum visited Hartsfield for an amazing Black History Month experience. Our students learned about how the Jack Hadley Black History Museum was created, told to us by Jack Hadley himself! Students also learned about black inventors and scientists while being able to interact with the impressive collection of items from the museum. We're grateful for such an amazing visit and loved hearing Mr. Hadley's story.

In art class, students have been working on Ancient Egyptian inspired art of their own. Using the sentence, "I am a leader/king/queen of..." as a prompt for their own creations, students have been visualizing what makes them a leader or the type of leader they aspire to become. Keep an eye out for this art displayed by the front gate!
