Dear Middlebrook Families,
First Selectwoman Vicki Tesoro came to visit Middlebrook this week to celebrate our summer reading with 4th and 5th graders who participated in Trumbull’s First Selectman Super Summer Reading Challenge. Students volunteered to share the book they read, a brief summary, and if they would recommend it to their peers. She handed out certificates and a small gift to the students. The challenge was for incoming 4th and 5th grade students to read and record books on their summer reading log between June and August. Middlebrook had over 50 students participate!
Middlebrook School's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Our super second graders have been learning about the rich history of the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade (which began in 1924 to help immigrants celebrate their cultures because they missed their homelands) through integration of all parts of our curriculum. Our classes built floats based on their research of fairy tales, American legends, monuments and faraway places. They have been studying the map route, solving word problems, understanding the STEM behind creating floats and building balloons.
Enjoy the pictures from our version of the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade!!
