Harris Center Field Trip for Grades 3 & 4

These past few weeks 3rd and 4th graders have been learning about different types of local animals and how their structures and functions help them survive. Students put their learning to the test on a field trip to McCabe Forest where we searched vernal pools, looked for salamanders, and made observations as we explored the forest. Students had a great time hiking, learning, and having fun!

The students rotated through three stations in the forest, which included ponding in the vernal pools, nature journaling near the river, and learning about the challenges salamanders face when making their journeys from vernal pools to the forest. They had a great day filled with laughter, exploration, and learning. Thank you to the Harris Center for making it such a great day!

Please Register By May 1

Click HERE to register for summer learning!

Good Afternoon,

It is time to register your child for Summer Learning. Please use the following link to sign your child(dren) up. An early registration will ensure that we have the staff and resources to host a robust summer learning program.

Explore and Expand, Title 1 and Summer Academy will begin on July 5th and run through July 27th. The programs are either 3 or 4 mornings a week depending on the age of your child(dren). A more detailed description of summer learning opportunities can be found in the registration form.

Similar to last year, all summer programming is free including transportation and lunch. Please note that we are working to increase the number of buses so that there are additional common pick-up and drop-off locations for students. We will work closely with town summer Recreation Programs to coordinate so that children may participate in both rec. programming as well as ConVal summer learning.

Please reach out with any questions!

Planting with Grade 1

First graders are beginning their work with Cornucopia planting seeds in our new garden beds at school. We can't wait to see what comes up!

First Grade Loves Learning about animals

During the winter, first graders learned many facts about how animals survive--by hibernating, migrating, or adapting to the cold. They have been learning to write informative texts about wild animals. Now, we are learning about how animals take care of their young to help them survive, and how animals and their young are alike and different. After the break, we are looking forward to learning how to write a special kind of poem about our animals.

Practicing Sight Words in Kindergarten

In Kindergarten, we have been working hard all year on learning our sight words. So far we have learned 36! This week, we went on a scavenger hunt around the school to look for our words on signs and posters that were hanging up. It was a really fun way to get some practice and we were great sight word detectives!

Kites in PK

The preschoolers in Ms. Starr's class made kite creations. They went outside and tried to fly them.
