Ms. Virginia from Dairy-in-the-Classroom visited Ms. Bachand's room on Tuesday 5-15-2018. She educated the students about collecting and using fibers from plants and animals to create clothing. Wool from sheep and fibers from alpacas and rabbits were a major focus of their learning. Ms. Virgina read a book to them that involved collecting and processing wool. Finally, students had an opportunity to try out mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. The whole visit was very interesting. LINK TO 51 PICTURES

Congratulations to Ms. Adams, Mr. Lewis, Ms. Rouleau and Ms. Jarvis for completing Masters degree work and graduating this school year.  We welcome more pictures like this from other teachers.
