What's Happening

  • We are pleased to welcome Mr. Morris Barco as our new principal for the 2016-2017 school year!

  • Visit the Portsmouth Public Library to check out summer reading books. 

  • Summer Healthy Moves
    Have a blast while caring for those you love by making these 4 Healthy Moves part of all your summer celebrations. Your kids will learn healthy habits as they eat smart, exercise, and have fun. 

    DRINK SMART TO PLAY HARD
    Choose drinks with less added sugar. Teach kids how to recognize drinks that are high in added sugars. Encourage them to choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. Kids should drink 2 to 3 cups of low-fat (1%) or fat-free milk a day, depending on age. 

    CHOOSE MORE FRUITS & VEGGIES 
    Offer kids fruits and vegetables during meals and snacks. Try new fruits and veggies together as a family. 

    LIMIT SCREEN TIME 
    Help kids discover fun ways to stay busy and active this summer. Limit TV and video game time to no more than 1-2 hours a day. 

    GET ACTIVE
    Kids need at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day. Help your family get moving with games, dancing, and more

mission It is the vision of James Hurst Elementary to recognize the need of the students to have a strong academic foundation as established by our state. We will create an atmosphere that promotes a desire to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
