Greetings from Gail

April 24,  2014elem 0514 3

We had a wonderful spring concert Wednesday night. There is nothing more beautiful than the sounds of children's voices. This was the first K-4 music concert we have had and I hope it will become a Samuel Morey tradition.

Another thing happening this spring is each class will have a presentation by Amanda Garland who is the School Zero Waste Coordinator with Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District. In addition to the presentations on recycling, Amanda brought us more recycling buckets for the fourth graders who are leading our school recycling. In the fall she will also help us with composting.

Some of the lessons students will be learning are:

  • Importance of recycling
  • Importance of composting
  • Landfills—where their trash ends up
  • Natural resources that we get from the earth

Did You Know?

Our Wee Deliver postal system workers have issued a challenge to the rest of the school to find poems and send them to their friends using our school postal system. April is poetry month. This is a great way to have students read poems and use our postal system. They get practice on how to address envelopes and our postal workers love to deliver mail!! They can also write their own poems to send.
