  • 2/24/2018 ARCADIA – After Cliff Hackman, Hamilton Heights Primary School assistant principal, fielded a number of calls from parents expressing concerns and anxiety related to the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., he had an idea. With the monthly fire drill approaching, Hackman wanted to take advantage of a teachable moment.
    While the school setting remains one of the safest and secure places for students, Hackman said he understood the concerns. He reached out to the local fire departments to see if they would like to participate in Heights regularly scheduled monthly fire drill. They were more than happy to help and arrived in force. 
    Personnel from Jackson Township Fire Department and the Cicero Fire Department were present at the fire drills, interacted with students throughout, and provide a little safety education while they were there. The media was there to capture the moment and help share the message about how one rural district continues its proactive safety efforts in the wake of a national tragedy.

  • Heights plays host to Costa Rican exchange experience
    2/8/2018 ARCADIA – This is Jane Shields’ third time coordinating an exchange experience for Costa Rican students and their local host families at Hamilton Heights.
    This year, 17 high school students (aged 15-17) and three teacher chaperones from three difference schools of the Limon Province of Costa Rica got to call northern Hamilton County home. After an amazing two weeks of non-stop fun and education, the Costa Rican students and their host families said their goodbyes but the time together and shared experiences of this cultural exchange will last a lifetime.
    The exchange students divided their time between attending classes with their Heights’ partners and taking excursions to other schools and Indiana attractions. After school and on the weekends, the group kept a full schedule engaging in a wide variety of local and regional amenities.
    “The students had a full two weeks during their visit here,” said Shields, Hamilton Heights’ Spanish teacher.

  • Sheridan Coalition Committee working to improve town
    2/1/2018 SHERIDAN – The Sheridan Coalition Committee has become an important part of the community and yet probably most residents have never even heard of it.

    The Coalition was the brain child of Gloria Del Greco, a NEP Community Wellness Coordinator for the Purdue Extension Service. Her office is in Noblesville. Purdue established the Community Wellness Coordinator positions in December of 2015 to help communities make the healthy choice the easy choice.
