……and the countdown begins, 10 More days of this school year! Some of our Grade 2 friends are off to the RISD museum today, the weather is perfect for their adventure.
Next week we will be having a special visit from the local Exeter and West Greenwich librarians. We will be working together to share our plans for recognizing student reading efforts this summer. We have come up with new ideas to encourage trips to the library! We are fortunate to have made some great community connections for this summer! I will tell you all about it next week!
I had the joy of attending the final PTA meeting for this year last night where we bid farewell to some friends who are moving on and welcomed in the newly appointed board members.
It will be a pleasure to have Jenn Spira in the role of President, Tom Cale as our Vice President, Maeyee Barrette as our Treasurer, and Jeanne McCaffery and Kelly Fichter will stay on as our Corresponding Secretary and Recording Secretary respectively.
This week, during our Grade 1 and Grade 2 meeting we discussed WORLD OCEANS DAY which is officially on June 8. There are great resources out there. Here is the website that I used to share the information with the students: http://worldoceansday.org/
I connected this to the fact that we live in the Ocean State and we shared stories about all of the treasures we have collected from the sea. Some students were exited to learn about my sea glass collection!
How exciting it is to see all of the Grade 2 Animal Projects coming in!! They are awesome! Do you know I actually received an edible EAGLE today! Who knew you could make such a thing! Yum!!
Have a super weekend!
