BANANAS: In regions such as North America and Europe, Musa fruits offered for sale can be divided into "bananas" and "plantains", based on their intended use as food. Thus the banana producer and distributor Chiquita produces publicity material for the American market which says that "a plantain is not a banana". The stated differences are that plantains are more starchy and less sweet; they are eaten cooked rather than raw; they have thicker skin, which may be green, yellow or black; and they can be used at any stage of ripeness.    Content from Wikipedia


Warmer than yesterday but not by a lot.
The wind is still a serious consideration for outside recess.

Our very own Mrs. Levine was nominated and awarded the Ignite award! She received this award for her innovative use of a 3D printer within her curriculum. All of her 4th, 5th, and 6th graders have learned how to use the 3D printer and were expected to print a part to help keep their egg safe during an egg drop challenge. 

Mrs. Levine attended the Ignite awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 3rd. We are so lucky to have such a brave, persistent, and innovative teacher in our school! Congratulations Mrs. Levine!

Here is one more item worth viewing concerning the Vermont 3-D Architecture competition where Maple Run students placed second. It is a 2 1/2 minute video made by Mr. Galle from Town School and it shows the research and 3-D construction processes, along with photos of the competition. Two students from Town School are included in the video. LINK TO VIDEO

The team had time in the large gym to play with the blue blocks and to run around 4-6-2018. LINK TO 40 PICTURES

Here are a few pictures taken of the older students at lunch. Enthusiasm for pictures in this age group is low, so thank you to those of you who tolerated a photograph. Keep a sense of humor while checking them out.  LINK TO 22 PICTURES
