Fencing for the playground for next year's budget

I would like to show the board at the next meeting a part of the playground that we are hoping to fence in when we order the fencing for this summer. We currently have temporary fencing up to keep the students away from the next door neighbors garage which we think is asbestos. We would like to make sure that we keep that garage area out of reach so the kids aren’t able to touch that surface.

Steps have been repaired

The steps to the second floor of the old building were repaired two weeks ago. This is a real safety upgrade and something we now don’t have to worry about.

Collaboration with the Montshire Museum

Many of our teachers have been taking advantage of the Montshire museum partnership in order to plan their science work. They are using materials loaned by the Museum and they are also collaborating with Museum staff to plan or in some situations co-teach lessons.

Upcoming field trips

On Tuesday, May 3rd the Kindergarten lst and 2nd graders will be taking a field trip to the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich. We will keep you posted when the details of this trip become clear.

On Thursday, May 5th grades 3rd to 6th are going to be visiting the State House in Concord and the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. We will keep parents posted with more details when this trip gets closer.

On Tuesday, May 17th we will be doing a whole school trip to the Hulbert Center in Fairlee VT. We will be taking all of the classes on this trip with the exception of the preschool class because they only have a half day schedule. There will be no preschool scheduled on May 17th. We will leave the school by bus at 8:30AM and return before the afternoon buses leave the school.
