The high quantity of water that cucumbers hold causes them to be about 10 degrees cooler inside than the air temperature outside them. This means that they are cool to the touch and is where the phrase "cool as a cucumber" comes from, although the phrase usually refers to somebody being in a calm frame of mind rather than them being a bit chilly.

THURSDAY - Cucumbers



We are done with snow tubes and snowshoes until the next winter storm. Enjoy the warmer weather.

SACS 4-6 Dance

Team Triumph is hosting a Wild Western dance on February 16, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 pm.  The cost is $3.00. The dance is going to have a lot of Western style activities like “The Bandit Dance Off”. You can also dress up in western clothing and if you do, your name goes into a raffle. We will be drawing names for awesome prizes.  If you give the DJ 50 cents, you can give a shout out to a friend.  There will be drinks, snacks and sweets for sale as well. Students will be expected to follow all dance expectations. Students will need to be dropped off at the gym doors entrance and picked up at the front entrance of the school. Please make sure that you are on time to pick up your child.

Does art inspire you? Clouds that look like faces? Sugar? Discovering new galaxies? Artists have looked to the world around them for centuries to gain inspiration. This year’s 10th anniversary of Doodle 4 Google asks students to do the same. The winner’s artwork will be made into an interactive doodle on as well as loads of scholarships and prizes. 

Use your imagination to create a Google Doodle based on what inspires you.

The HOPE interns have completed their first project!  This Sap Sled is multi-terrain, it can be used with skis when there is still snow on the ground and when the snow melts the wheels can be put on quickly to continue gathering all the sap necessary to make that tasty syrup in the new sugar house.  There are some clues in the picture of the next project the interns will be working on.  Can you guess what it is?

Sixty-three students and ten adults walked to school this morning. As usual, Team Incredibles had the highest number of students come to school by foot (or bike).

The temperatures were fine and the only real challenge people faced were icy sidewalks.  Local Motion, the organization tha loans us bikes each spring, provided us with hot chocolate to serve to the walkers upon arrival.  Thanks to the walkers and leaders who made this Walking Wednesday possible.
