    Nob Hill Elementary focused this year on teaching students to create and reach goals and how to break down long-term goals into reachable short-term goals. Staff and students focused on achieving goals in three areas of student life: body, mind, and family/community. To support this effort, the NHE Specialist Team created the “Nighthawk Strong Challenge” for the 2021-22 school year:   

    -To strengthen the body: run 30 miles during our weekly Mileage Club (do running)

    -To strengthen the mind: read 30 books or achieve 30 points with the Accelerated Reading program (do reading)

    -To strengthen the community: do 30 good deeds for family or in the community (do right).   

    Families supported this effort by helping to track the books read and the “do rights” completed in the home and community.  All our students participated in mileage club; some students completed the reading portion; others served in the family/community, but we had 49 students complete the entire 30/30/30 Nighthawk Strong Challenge! 

    To celebrate and finish this challenge, the entire school went on a field trip to Zaepfel Stadium to run the last mile together. The students who met every goal of the challenge received special recognition and all NHE students earned a Nighthawk Strong t-shirt! Congratulations to our challenge champions:

    Ruben, Lucius, Giovanni, Sidney, Cynthia, Iszack, Octavio, Dominic, Taylor, Emiliano, Bob, Matthew, Keenon, Amir, Soletta, Sabrina, Logan, Azariah, Julianne, Jack, Adrian, Ben,  Abigail, Camila, Adam, Diego, Lena, Kayla, Kennedy, Amy, Charley, Noe, Jack, Thomas, Kaylyn, Nalah, Declan, Julia, Azalea, Michael, Ida, Scarlet, Stephanie, Penelope, Sophia, Aubree, Oswaldo, Roxanna, and Lydia.

    This opportunity would not have been possible without funding from the ROSSEY Study and the extra efforts of the wonderful NHE Specialist Team:  Mr. Luna, Ms. Hanson, Mrs. Kajrenius, and Mrs. Kaluzny.

    The Nighthawk Strong challenge is a new opportunity created by the NHE Specialist Team to help students learn to make and achieve goals to strengthen their body, mind, and family/community during the 2021-22 school year.   To strengthen the body:  run 30 miles during our weekly Mileage Club (do running); to strengthen the mind: read 30 books or achieve 30 points with the Accelerated Reading program (do reading); to strengthen the community:  do 30 good deeds for family or in the community (do right).   Families support this effort by helping to track the books read and the “do rights” completed in the home and community.   This long-term goal was split into three short-term goals or phases.  For phase 1, September-November, we had 68 students successfully complete the challenge!  We are so proud of all of our students who worked at achieving their goals, and give special congratulations to the following students for achieving their first goal of 10 miles/10 books/10 deeds:  Reuben S., Mia R., Lucius W., Laiklyn M., Julian V., Ben C., Piper R., Iszack Q., Cynthia H., Octavio T., Emiliano L., Amir M., Bob H., Giovanni B., Matthew W.,  Leilani S., Julianna R., Julianne L., Fermin B., Elsia M., Harlie B., Fiona P., Ava L., Taylor F, Gavin F, Ivanna R., Lucas G., Sophia U, Sofia C., Jalaya E., Lily M., Ireland W., Logan R., Abigail Q., Ben S., Adrian U., Adam F., Diego P., Camila C., Lena H., Charley H., Amerie M., Treyvon G., Kayla J., Kennedy S., Michael A., Julia C., Scarlet R., Sadie G., Ayden P., Dez M., Levi G., Addy K., Janessa R., Azalea D., Jack W., Noe S., Kaylyn D,  Declan D., Mariana H., Akiko A., Yaretzi C., Issaiah Q., Lydia H., Elise G., Lily L., Nalah B., and Jack C.

  • MAY THE SOCK BE WITH YOU

    Posted by Colleen Kaluzny on 6/3/2021

    Nob Hill Elementary truly cares about the greater Yakima community.  This was recently demonstrated when the 5th Grade Peacemakers facilitated a sock drive and Nob Hill students, staff, families, and friends responded in kind.  Beginning on April 20 and culminating on May the 4th, colorful boxes were filled with donated socks in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors (593 pairs to be exact)!  The proceeds were then sorted (based on size and need) and subsequently donated to Rod's House, Camp Hope, and the YWCA Women's Shelter.  As always, the "force is strong" at Nob Hill because after all..."if the sock fits, share it, you must".
