HES wins VIking Leaders Award

May 13, 2024

Viking Leaders Award: Heartland Elementary School Principal Kimberly Hornberg presented the Viking Leaders Award to the 2nd grade students in Mrs. Odom's room. They learned about civics in social studies this semester and wanted to do something to improve their community. They chose to replace a broken bench in their school’s sensory garden. The seven- and eight-year-olds developed and implemented a plan to raise money with the hopes of being able to purchase two benches. While their goal was to raise just over $400, through their effort they were able to raise more than $1,000 and purchased chairs in addition to the benches for the sensory garden. By taking this initiative, they exemplified key proponents of the District 304 Viking Leaders Award.
