Students participated in a Penny Carnival on the afternoon of June 7th.  Students paid pennies to play various games to benefit the physical education program.  Mr. Dan Cyr organized the event with the help of older students.  The older students manned each station for a set period of time and switched so they would have a chance to play as well.  Luckily, the rain held off!  See photos

3D Printing Through the Grades

posted May 31, 2018, 2:43 AM by Gina Jandreau

Fifth and sixth grade students have been working with students from kindergarten to grade 4 to create 3D pieces for their needs.  Students created a blueprint of their design in their classroom, then sat with the fifth/sixth grader, who used the online Tinkercad program, to create their project. They helped the third graders create pieces for their nonfiction dioramas, one kindergarten class created Mother's Day key chains, the first graders created animals for their Safari Read program, and fourth graders created spaceships for their science fiction unit.  They still need to create Father's Day keychains with one kindergarten class.  Photos of all of their creations can be seen here.
