WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN
WALKING CONTEST BETWEEN
LEARNING COMMUNITIES STARTED
MONDAY MAY 7TH!
It will run for four weeks from May 7th through June 1st.
All laps must be completed on the ½ mile gravel walking path. Laps indoors, around the gyms or beyond the school campus on field trips will not count! Tally sheets will be left on clipboards on a table next to the recess shed.
The success of this contest depends on the honesty of all participants. Only record the actual amount of laps you completed. Thank you.
On SBAC testing days all laps around the walking path count double towards the contest. The people doing the tally at the end of the week will double your laps for you on SBAC days.
Tally sheets will be analyzed each Monday and updates on the contest scores will be provided each Tuesday in our announcements.

Navigators in Ms. Adams classroom are shown learning about fruits, vegetables, and seeds from Dairy in the Classroom teacher, Ms. Virginia. Students learned what foods are produced in Vermont and how seeds grow. Ms. Virginia ended the class by reading a short story book that showed ways to overcome the tendency for kids to be picky eaters. The whole session was well received. LINK TO 40 PICTURES
BREAD BAKING BY TRIUMPH
Some students from Team Triumph got to experience bread making with Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Lamb. As with earlier teams of students, they followed the King Arthur bread-making course with online video instruction coupled with the expertise of their two food instructors. The result was amazing bread by the end of the school day which many teachers got to taste and appreciate. 5-7-2018
