  • ARRIVING ON TIME TO SCHOOL 

    Students who arrive after 8:42 are tardy and will need to receive a pass from the front office. Due to the volume of parents driving students to school in the morning, please allow yourself extra time so that your child will make it in the building on time and not be marked tardy. We appreciate your help with this.

  • Creating Gingerbread Structures

    Yearlong art students collaborated on a problem based learning art project by delving into the delicious history of gingerbread, yum! Students researched the evolution of gingerbread from its meager beginnings as a hearty treat to the major art form it has become around the world today. Students worked in pairs or teams of three to design and construct a traditional or non-traditional gingerbread structure based upon a set of criteria giving during art class. Each group or pair focused on creating an original structure that represents unity through the use of color, pattern, and theme. Teams had to be mindful of the overall appearance of the piece as well as their technical skills when working with this challenging art medium, food.

  • Virtual Visit from Jennifer Richard Jacobson: Author of "Paper Things"

    On Tuesday, November 13th the Battle of the Books Club students were able to experience a virtual question and answer session with children and young adult books author, Jennifer Richard Jacobson. From her web site, www.jenniferjacobson.com here is a brief bio on the author: JRJ Coming from a long line of educators, I always knew I’d be a teacher. I didn’t always know I’d be a writer, but somehow it turned out that way. I kept a diary since the age of nine, and I won the Edith Bird Bass Essay Contest as a senior in high school in my hometown of Peterborough, NH. While an undergrad at Lesley College, I took a course in children’s literature and fell in love with the genre. I tinkered with writing while teaching, holding administrative positions, and getting my masters, but it wasn’t until I moved to Maine and returned to the classroom as first grade teacher, that I became determined to write a children’s book. I told my students we were going to write up a storm that year. I was going to teach them everything I knew about writing, and they in turn would help me to become a better writer. And they did. I consider the children’s novel I wrote that year to be “practice” and although it will never be published, it kept me on the path, kept me writing. When my daughter was born, I decided to try my hand at a writing career. I wrote articles, books for parents and teachers, teacher guides and emergent readers for first grade reading programs – anything that would give me the time and space to continue trying to break into the children’s field.

  • Providing Meaningful Postitive Feedback Through Gallery Walks

    On Thursday, November 8th, Mrs. Bradley’s 8th grade students showcased their Anthem book projects through a Gallery Walk in the classroom. The students displayed their projects on their desks and the desks were arranged in a circular fashion. Students were able to walk through the “gallery of projects”, while leaving feedback slips for their classmates. Mrs. Bradley instructed her students to provide specific, meaningful, feedback to their peers by using the following criteria: Understanding of Novel, Creative Engagement with the Task, Clear and Engaging Presentation, and Whether the project was complete. The gallery showcased the student’s creativity is a variety of different mediums such as: movie trailers, newspaper articles, video game designs, book jackets, top ten favorite websites for the character of “equality” as presented in the novel, and movie soundtracks. Mrs. Bradley provided the students with examples of meaningful feedback, and stressed how hard she knew the students had worked on these projects and how important it is to be able to receive specific feedback from peers as well as teachers. The projects were truly engaging and thought provoking. It is clear that the students put a great deal of time and effort into these “works of art” as well as into the feedback they provided for their classmates.
