Harris Students of the Month
Big Shout out to our students of the month for December! They have displayed Perseverance in the classroom.
Congratulations to our students of the month for January. Honest hearts produce honest actions. You make us very proud.
Congratulations to our February Students of the month. These fine citizens of Harris School are role models to all!
During the month of March, Kindergarten worked on simple addition & subtraction number sentences, as well as opinion & narrative writing. As they continue to introduce new sight words they will begin small group reading instruction. They will also begin learning about the life cycle of plants through reading non-fiction texts & hands on exploration.
Kindergarten celebrated the 100th day of school and Groundhog Day! Here are some pictures of their adorable faces.

FOURTH Grade NEWS!
fifth Grade News!
Fifth grade is continuing to work on multiplication and division of fractions. They are reading "George's Universe", a science fiction novel and working on writing science fiction stories. Over the last few days they have visited the Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket. They are looking forward to getting started on their graduation projects in a few weeks.
Mrs. Pires fifth graders completed a Culture Project at the end of March. The projects were displayed for their families and students presented their work during gallery walks.
Successful Family Events!
Lego Night on March 19th brought in about 40 families. Families explored science and engineering by constructing a car with legos. The children then raced the legos down ramps and determined if their model car was great as is, or if it needed some fine tuning.
Fun filled family time was had by all. If you joined us, thank you for making it worthwhile! If you were unable to attend, we hope to see you at our next family night!
