Jane LaDue – Computer Lab, Lyndsay Smotherman – Librarian, Julia Russell – Creative Dramatics, Caitlin Williams – PE
In Creative Dramatics students are exposed to all the arts including music, art, and drama. Students study famous artists and recreate their artwork. They work hard to present programs for Veterans Day and Christmas. Under the direction of Mrs. Julia Russell, fifth graders create ornaments for the West Hardin Christmas tree for Christmas on Main and make personalized ceiling tiles as they complete their last year of elementary school.
When students visit the computer lab, they improve reading and math skills by working on Starfall, Lexia, iXL, Prodigy, and more! They earn certificates for their hard work and are so excited when they level up!
Physical Education is a little bit of everything:
Students not only play a variety of games in P.E., but they also participate in the 5 Star Fitness Challenge. This is a county-wide program that tests each student in pull-ups, sit-ups, shuttle run, sit & reach, and a mile run.

West Hardin Elementary Library
The purpose of the school counseling program at West Hardin is to facilitate learning opportunities in a manner that ensures all students can achieve school success. We strive to meet the personal, social, and educational needs of our students while working alongside our parents. We advocate for students’ well-being and offer guidance and support when the need arises.
Some activities that we enjoy to build relationships and skills include many different social stories, props such as puppets, games including bingo, and lots of interaction through conversation. Some topics include study skills, manners, feelings, self-esteem, hygiene, friends, bullying, healthy choices, fire prevention and much more.
If I can ever be assistance to you or your child, please contact me at the school.
