    The Hartford Central School District offers a plethora of programs to create not only great students, but great people. Many of these opportunities for students are listed below:

    Battle of the Books: Held each year for grades 3-6. Hartford students read books assigned to their respective grade level and participate in a local competition regarding details of the books they read.


    Enrichment: A program for grades 3-6 that consists of faculty and staff sharing a talent, interest, or activity with students once a week for five weeks.  There are two sessions each year.  Some of these programs include playing different board games, conducting science experiments, working on a movie trailer, learning about another culture, and more.


    Small Group Counseling: Groups for elementary students formed on a variety of topics including friendship skills, study skills, confidence, and family dynamics. 


    Spelling Bee: Held each year for grades 4-8.  The winners from each grade compete during a school assembly, and those winners advance to compete in a regional competition.


    Strive for Five: A middle school incentive program recognizing achievement and improvement in academic performance and held at the end of the second and third quarter.  An assembly is held to recognize honor roll students and those students who meet the qualifications for Strive for Five.
