Art 3 Students Create Packing Tape People

For the past 2 weeks, Art 3 students in Mrs. Cano’s class have been working on creating Packing Tape People. After learning about Installation Art, students were to choose a visible space in the school where they could display their sculptures. Some students chose the hallway or the cafeteria, while others placed theirs in the library and even in classrooms. To create the sculptures, students had to wrap themselves in saran wrap one body part at a time to protect their skin and then layer packing tape over top of the seran wrap to provide strength and stability to the sculpture. Once all of the parts were completed, students worked together to build their sculpture, adding clothing that they made as well as props that helped bring their sculptures to life. This group project requires teamwork, creativity and even some bravery as you have to trust your fellow classmates to safely cut you out of each wrapped piece. The end results are great and each group proved to be successful!


Quiz Bowl

Quiz Bowl is an academic quest for knowledge.  Quiz Bowl tests the knowledge of participants while planting and proposing new questions and concepts.  Teams have weekly practices which consists of reviewing previously used questions in the attempt to be prepared for future meets.  Meets are held rather irregularly, usually once a month.  At a quiz bowl meet, participants form a team of four each person having a pencil and paper for computations and a buzzer.   The team is encouraged to work together to reach a conclusion as fast as possible. At the meets, each school is asked 50 questions with a half-time break to switch out team members.  There is no way to study for the meets as the questions are obtained from every conceivable topic, from astronomy to zoology. However, participants enjoy the challenge and a positive learning experience is achieved.

School Paper

We work on the yearbook for the high school and the newspaper. Each month we release a paper for all of the students and staff to read. Each one of the staff members submits four articles that include two news stories, a miscellaneous article, and a feature. After reading all of them, Mrs. Uitto selects the ones that she thinks would fit well in the paper.

The purpose of the Paw Print is to inform the people of Hardin Northern what is going on in their school and their surroundings. We try to make it as interesting and exciting as possible for all of our readers. We hope you enjoy!

History Brigade

Due to restrictions related to Covid this year’s Veteran’s Day Ceremony is virtual. We would like to invite the community to watch this celebration video of our Veterans. The Student Council Members along with Mr Foster and the History Brigade have put together a video honoring our Military Veterans. This also includes a special musical performance by our 4th grade classes. We hope you enjoy and thank you for all who have served our country!

Living Memory is a project sponsored by the Hardin Northern History Brigade. We want to honor those who have served our nation. Our goal is to help preserve the stories and memories of our local veterans for future generations. To show our thanks and honor your memory, we would like to invite our local veterans to schedule an appointment to visit the school and sit for a short interview while we capture your story on video for display on the school website. Feel free to bring any pictures you would like to share.

If you are interested in having your story preserved in Living Memory, please contact the History Brigade by calling or emailing Joe Foster at or by visiting the school web page for the Living Memory Project.

Reenactors from different time periods came to Hardin Northern today to introduce elementary students to history. “We’re giving the students a taste of what early history was like”, said Mr. Foster HN HS history teacher, who organized the event. Stations were setup throughout the campus such as artillery, infantry, fur trade, WWI, WWII, and even the FCCLA was there demonstrating how to cook 1800’s style.
