MASTER GARDENERS' VISIT
St. Albans City School is designated as an approved Master Gardening site where master gardeners and aspiring master gardeners can complete hours to meet the requirements of their certification. Heather Smith, our farm to school coordinator, led the tour. She is a long-time master gardener and the overseer of the many gardening projects initiated since 2013.

The purpose of the gardeners' visit was to showcase the needs of the various projects and to invite these master gardeners to donate their time to the school. The visitors found the tour interesting, as evidenced by the length of their visit. They left impressed with what had been accomplished by City School and enthusiastic to become a part of St. Albans City School's story. 6-21-2018

PICTURES FOR THURSDAY



TUESDAY'S GOODBYES FOR THE SUMMER










STEP UP DAY GATHERINGS
All the learning communities hosted students moving up grades from younger learning communities. Teachers organized get-to-know each other activities. This helped the teachers familiarize themselves with their new pupils and assist the students in meeting their peers from groups they rarely interacted with during the past school year.  Students had in-classroom breakfasts. 6-20-2018. 






WEDNESDAY'S GOODBYES FOR THE SUMMER 
For those here on step-up day.










REPEATED PICTURES FROM 
WEDNESDAY's ANNOUNCEMENTS

TRIUMPH POOL PARTY

As winners of the Walking Wednesday participation contest, team Triumph won an hour of pool party time at the St. Albans recreation department pool.  Although temperatures were only in the high 60s, there was sun and the students had a good time. When asked about the experience, they said "It was fun". 6-19-2018.  LINK TO 25 PICTURES










VOYAGERS
The Voyagers also had a pool party due to the fact that they walked zillions of laps around the school's walking path. It too was a blast.  LINK TO 34 PICTURES

DREAMERS

Students from Ms. Gleason's, Ms. Walsh's, Mr. Barker's and Ms. Williams' classrooms assembled in the cafeteria to sing to their parents and members of the school. The kids did a great job and the LINK TO 285 PICTURES show it.  Families, you should be able to find a number of pictures of your child.









VOYAGERS 

Team Voyagers visited Kill Kare state park on Monday, 6-18-2018. The weather was overcast, windy and warm. Everyone still managed to have a good time.  Ms. Mitchell kindly shared photos.  LINK TO 40 PICTURES










RENAISSANCE EGG DROP
On Tuesday morning Mr. Pelkey dropped all the carefully packaged eggs (created the previous day) off the edge of the building closest to the softball field.  About half the eggs survived the 2-story drop, much to the jubilation of the students who had designed the packaging. It was a short and fun event to observe.  LINK TO 31 PICTURES









PRE-K (GLEASON) END OF YEAR CELEBRATION
There was a three-song concert followed by a short award ceremony. There were a lot of smiles evident between the students and parents. 6-19-2018   LINK TO 153 PICTURES
