WOW! Words of the Week

Big picture
Words of the Week is a fun way for the Fremont community to help our students' vocabulary SOAR! Each week we will post a MATH and ELA vocab word that may appear in our informal and formal state assessments. Our hope is that staff, families and students will find fun and engaging ways to learn these terms! You could: Play a word game in the car! Keep a running list of the words! Hang them on the bathroom mirror! Sing them! Create a word scavenger hunt!

Here are this week's words:

mode: The most frequent number—that is, the number that occurs the highest number of times.

root word: a basic word with no prefix or suffix added to it

Public input needed for 603 Bright Futures Survey

Big picture

The 603 Bright Futures survey includes an opportunity for anyone interested to provide feedback that will be a useful source of information to improve schools, programming and policies statewide. The NH Department of Education will open its survey on March 13, which will remain available through April 28 to allow everyone the opportunity to respond. Once the survey closes, the results will be shared on the NH Department of Education's website.

In response to the disruptive effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on student social, emotional, and mental health, the State of New Hampshire is providing opportunities for positive childhood experiences at New Hampshire-approved overnight and day youth recreation camps. Through the ReKINDling Curiosity program, qualifying students will have up to $750 of their youth recreation camp fees covered by the Department of Education. For many children, especially those from low-income backgrounds or with disabilities, accessing summer enrichment opportunities that support continued development of the whole child is more important than ever. By relieving student anxiety and trauma resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, these experiences will help New Hampshire students return to in-person school with a rekindled curiosity, excited and anticipating a return to academic instruction in the fall.
