Dear SACS community,

We all need to help make sure our compost is usable. That means NO TRASH! we are still struggling to keep trash out of the compost at breakfast. Here is how we did on Monday.

Here's how the compost should look.

Let's all work together. When we can keep the compost clean there will be cause for celebration!

Thank you,  Your School Counselors

Note:  There seems to be quite a bit of uneaten fruit that could be going into the share fridge rather than into the compost.

The Investigators used their harvested pumpkins to make some yummy treats for Fun Friday. First grade students made delicious pumpkin spice ice cream, second grade made sweet roasted pumpkin seeds and for a contrast, third grade roasted salty and spicy pumpkin seeds. All community members tried some of each treat. It was a Fun and Tasty Friday!



Maker Faire
This past weekend a few SACS students joined other Vermont educators and students from the Create Make Learn Institute at the Champlain Maker Faire as part of an interactive Learn to Code display with EMMA (Everyone May Make Anywhere), a mobile makerspace. 

The students used Makey Makeys and Scratch to create an Onomatopoeia garden where plant and flowers said onomatopoeia words. They also had a station where people could 'fish' for animal cards and when the card was 'caught' it made the animal noise. It was a great day to show off our learning and also see all the creations and ideas other people had.

Salsa Making
Triumph made Salsa with Mrs Lamb and Mrs Smith on Friday 9-23-2016.  The tomatoes and other vegetables used to make the salsa came from the school and community gardens.  Delicious!

Are you interested in how computers work?  Want to learn more about creating programs and games along with making lights and motors go on and off to create an interactive project.

Yes CODESMYTHS is back and better than ever, and you are invited to join.

Make sure not to miss the kick-off event
this Thursday, September 29th at 8:15 in the Library!!

What is CODESMYTHS you ask?
It is an opportunity to apply your problem solving skills in a self-directed environment where you learn how to program and write apps for computers of all sizes.  You get to collaborate with fellow classmates and learn a skill that is applicable in school and out in the workforce.  It may even be  a bit of FUN, especially as you get to design what you want to create.

The kick-off event is for 4th - 8th grade students new to Codesmyths, so you can get a better idea of what you do in the course, why we teach it, and how to sign up.

For Snacks Today we have Grapes
One cup of grapes, with about 100 calories, provides more than a quarter of the daily recommended values of vitamins K and C. Grape seeds, which are edible, are chock-full of antioxidants.

Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
