PICTURES AND REPORTS
Explorers Were Visited by Two Members of the St. Albans Humane Society. They brought a dog and two cats to have the children touch and love. The Human Society wished to thank the Explorers and St. Albans for the over 600 pounds of shoes they collected. The donated shoes resulted in hundreds of dollars given to the humane society, assisting them in defraying animal food and health care costs. Thanks everyone. LINK TO PICTURES

Unity and Disunity Presentations by 4th through 6th Graders 12-21-2016
Incredibles, Triumph, Discovery and Voyagers students shared their learning about the periods and events that drew us together or separated us as a Nation. It was clear from the evening that each community put a great deal of effort and thought into creating their performances. Thank you to the many families and friends that turned out for the evening event. Thank you also for understanding the less than optimal sound that made it difficult to fully appreciate the creativity of the students and teachers.
A few pictures of the event.
