Principal's Message


Hello,

Hildreth Elementary School serves residents of the town of Harvard as well as residents of Devens. We are a PreK-5 School located in a beautiful community in central MA.

As the principal of HES, I am excited to work with parents and families to maintain the good work happening here in Harvard and continue to move us forward in being a leader in educational excellence. I am grateful for the wonderful families and staff that make Harvard such a supportive community.

If there is anything that we can do to be helpful, please let us know. We can be reached at the school at 978-456-4145 or by email at jmyler@psharvard.org and smulcahy@psharvard.org

Josh Myler, HES Principal

With our new Innovation Lab, students have even more opportunity to explore many ways to solve a problem. Take a look at this example:

Engineering Process

Students thought of problems that Edward Tulane (from our read aloud, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane) faced due to the fact that he was a doll and could not move by himself.

They were put into groups based on the problem they chose to solve.  Groups discussed possible tools which might help Edward move and be relieved from his problem.

Groups chose what they thought was the best tool to rescue Edward Tulane, and then made a materials list.
