A Monday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

June 9, 2014

It's hard to believe there are only a few weeks left until school ends. Our last day is Monday, June 23rd, a much later date than usual. While school is still in session, please encourage your child to maintain positive behaviors and to stay focused on school work.

Next Monday, June 16th at 8:30 a.m. we will hold a special REP to say good-bye to this year's 4th graders. Next year they will be attending Samuel Morey and we'd like to send them off to our sister school with a special presentation. Parents and friends are welcomed and encouraged to attend this 30 minute event.

There is still time to register for Summer-Scapes 2014. We're offering three morning academic programs and more than 20 afternoon fun camps. Participants can look forward to exciting field trips like the ECHO center in Burlington, the Seacoast Science Center, and an awesome trip to Wallis Sands State Park in Rye, NH. Many camps are still open and scholarships are available to those families in need. Please consider registering your child for this incredible summer camp experience.

This Sunday, June 15th at 9 a.m. we are looking for volunteers to help build two new structures on our school campus: five raised garden beds and a natural playscape area. The gardens will benefit our school by teaching our students to cultivate vegetables that will be used in our kitchen, and helping them to learn the science behind plants and vegetables and how they grow.

The new natural playscape will have many benefits as well. It will offer activities for students like balancing on wooden beams, climbing on leveled stumps and boulders, and stepping on strategically placed stones.

We know this is a busy weekend for families, but if you have any time, please consider stopping by school to help. We are still looking for natural items like boulders, long logs to be used for balance beams and several stumps of different lengths.
