Fall AR Celebration

We read because we love to, but we also read because we love the AR Celebrations!  Students who met their Accelerated Reader goals for the first nine weeks went on an adventurous trip to the new Hancock County play area/pavilion/splash pad (conveniently located across from the school).  Accelerated Reader promotes individualized growth in literacy and comprehension, and it acts as a catalyst to spark a new world of discovery through literature and informational text.

See You at the Pole

September 28, 2016, thousands of Christian students across the nation gather for a student-initiated and student-led worship, scripture reading, and prayer service around the school’s flagpole.  This tradition began in Texas in 1998, and HNCE students continue that tradition today.


Red Ribbon Week

Hancock North Central Elementary will be taking part in a week long, district-wide program called Red Ribbon Week.  Red Ribbon Week was designed to create an awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs.  The national theme this year is “YOLO(you only live once). Be Drug Free.”  Red Ribbon Week started in 1985 as a means of honoring D.E.A. agent Enrique Camarena, who lost his life in the line of duty.  Today, Red Ribbon Week has grown into a national observance- a time for schools and communities across the nation to come together in the fight against drugs.  At HNCE, we will focus on the many aspects of health and safety.  You can take advantage of this time to open a dialogue at home and discuss issues like peer pressure and making the right choices for a healthy future.

Parading Through the Storm

Vocabulary Parade


Hancock North Central Elementary School once again, made vocabulary fun and engaging.  For the second consecutive year, HNCE celebrated their Vocabulary Parade on Friday, March 11th.  Each student was assigned a vocabulary word, and their teachers challenged them to create a costume illustrating the word’s meaning.  Students proudly marched in their creations showing off what they learned to their parents and community friends. HNCE turned this rainy day into a remarkable one!
