Happy May Day!

May 1, 2015

Pretty soon the weather will be warm and we’ll be preparing for the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It’s hard to believe that we only have 7.5 weeks remaining of school. During this time we have many exciting events and activities happening.

Join us on Wednesday, May 6th for our first celebration of Non Fiction. The students have worked all year reading and writing about informational text and this evening is their opportunity to show you what they have learned. Be prepared for an exciting night of Explorers, Artic Animals, Planets and more!

Next Friday I’ll be traveling to Twinfield Union School in Marshfield, VT with Mrs. O’Hearn and 7 members of our Student Leadership Team. We’ll be attending the Vermont Rural Partnership Conference and sharing our composting work. It should be an exciting day for our students—they will be meeting new friends from all around Vermont, attending workshops, and learning about the projects started by other small, rural schools.

Soon we’ll be saying good-bye to our 4th graders who will attend Samuel Morey next year. On the 12th of May they will spend the day at the Hulbert Outdoor Center bonding and having fun with their future SME classmates.

Our Students are Amazing!

Congratulations to our 3rd and 4th grade students for finishing the SBAC testing! They all did a great job and we appreciate how seriously they took the testing. We are proud of them!

On Monday, Mrs. Russell rewarded 8 students for their participation in the Reading is an Investment program. As part of their library curriculum all students are introduced to basic financial concepts and if they complete the reading challenge they are eligible to win a $250 college savings account.

Kindergarten Registration and Orientation

Saturday, May 9, 2015 8:30-11:30
The school year isn’t over yet, but we are already looking ahead to next year and our new group of kindergarten students. If you have a child that will be 5 years old on or before August 31st please call WES and ask the WES Administrative Assistant, Carrie to make an appointment. The orientation will take approximately one hour with extra time after to meet and greet with the school nurse.

On the day of orientation, we will see children in groups of 5 or 6. Our primary educators watch andmwork with the children to get to know them better. Our principal, Tammy MacQueen will meet with parents for a school tour, to review the kindergarten handbook, and acquaint parents with some of the procedures and traditions at our school. She’ll also be able to answer any questions parents may have.

We look forward to meeting our new students and parents next Saturday!
