On Thursday, April 15, 2015:11 girls and 10 important female women in
their lives attended the ROX Self-Defense Program after school at HW Good
Elementary School. All participants enjoyed dinner and conversation before
the self defense program began.
Self Defense techniques were taught by Dr. Lisa Hinkleman (ROX Founder)
and Ms. Lisa Mumau (School Counselor). The participants were taught safe
ways to protect their personal space when they may feel threatened or
intimidated. Many of the girls practiced various self-defense techniques
with their partners and utilized the self-defense gloves and targets.
ROX is a program that supports healthy development and empowerment for
young girls. The girls participate in a 20 week evidenced based curriculum
Students in grades 2-4 who achieved their accelerated reader goal were rewarded with a baseball trip to the Altoona Curve Stadium. Special thanks to Mrs. Sites for organizing the program.
The 4th grade students at HW Good Elementary school recently completed a research project on Native American Tribes. Students In Mr. Kasic’s Social Studies classes were split into groups and worked cooperatively to gather information and give an oral presentation on their tribe. Randy Rothwell, father of HW Good 4th grader Whitley Rothwell, assembled a full size teepee on the playground behind the school as part of his daughter’s presentation. All of the students at HW Good were able to visit the teepee, as well as view the numerous Native American artifacts on display.

Students in Kindergarten received a developmental school counseling lesson
with Ms. Mumau about bullying. The students listened to the book, A Bug
and A Wish and learned how to stand up to a bully. Students developed
their BUG statements such as: It bugs me when you tease mean and their
WISH statements, "I wish you would stop".
Students and Ms. Mumau also discussed the characteristics of a bully
and how students can get help when they are involved with a bully.
Keep up the great work, Kindergarten students!!!!
