Regional School District No. 6
Mrs. Leavitt returned to school to surprise the students with a new "buddy bench"
for the playground. What a great spot to "come sit and be my friend,"
as the quote on the plaque states. Thank you, Mrs. Leavitt!

It is hard to believe that we have only been in school for six school days. Everyone has settled in, and routines are running smoothly. The older students in each class have helped so much, since they know the routines so well from last year. We are looking forward to Open House on September 19th because we have so much to show you!
Please take a look at the "A Look Ahead" section below. There are new times listed for a few events, including the Back to School Carnival that will take place this Saturday. It's going to be a beautiful day. I hope to see you there!
In preparation for our first round of Enrichment Clusters, students share their interests with the staff.
Mr. Leone talks to students about the vegetable artwork they are creating in preparation for the Harvest of Dreams Luncheon.
Mrs. Brady and a young scientist closely examine a monarch caterpillar.
