Boosterthon Glow Run
Students at FFES enjoyed our Boosterthon Glow Run this week. Kindergarten through grade 5 completed anywhere from 30-35 laps around a darkened gym, complete with glow sticks, motivating music, and a giant blow up tunnel. After a week of fundraising, we exceeded our goal thanks to the support of family and friends. The money raised will be used to update our playground among other exciting projects.
Thanks to our PTA, Southwick's Zoo brought their Zoomobile to IBES! This program includes an animal handler and a presenter who will provide a general introduction to the subject of animal ecology. We will explore topics such as traits used to classify different animals into groups like birds, reptiles, and mammals; types of interactions between animal groups; how animals interact with their environment.
the trek of the Iditarod
Jill Duggan's Class is working on a special project where they pick a racer to follow on the trek of the Iditarod. One resource is a book by famous Iditarod champion Susan Butcher who is quoted as saying. "I do not know the word ‘quit.’ Either I never did, or I have somehow abolished it."

Plymouth North High School is participating in its second annual Pulsera Project. Student volunteers from Spanish classes have been selling hand-woven bracelets made by artisans in Nicaragua and Guatemala.
