Temple School 3rd and 4th graders published their second KIDSCANDO News last week which celebrated their New Year’s Resolutions. Children wrote these resolutions using their TREE (SRSD) writing protocol. They are currently working on science articles for the next Kids Can Do News, where they will practice TIDE, another SRSD writing protocol for writing informational text which they are currently learning to utilize during essay writing.
Each Friday, TES children celebrate what they CAN DO during a whole school assembly. We had three children perform with Mr. Parshall, demonstrating their new ukulele skills as well as a sing along. We also had multiplication mastery demonstrations through song by several third and fourth graders and five children perform a jump rope routine. We ended with a snowboard demo video of one of our super second grade skiers. TES Kids CAN DO a lot!
SMS students are working on a STEMs project in EHP class with Mrs. Brezovec videotaping a local manufacturing company about the process of production, engineering and technology.
This is a collaborative effort with local STEMS coordinator and local businesses.
Hancock Elementary students have been hard at work. As a part of our WIN time, fourth grade students have created NBC Time. NBC stands for newspaper book club. The newspaper element is just that – a newspaper. Fourth grade students are writing poems, creating comics and writing information articles about events at HES. The book club involves fourth graders working with kindergarten, first and second graders during reading. Their goal: to ensure that k, 1 and 2 are ready and able to succeed in the next grade! Mrs. Topping, our kindergarten teacher, reports that both she and the kindergarten students are thrilled to have the support from fourth graders.
GES celebrated the recent holidays in style just before the last break. We hosted our first annual Holiday Feast. Students and their families enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner served by all the GES teachers, along with a wonderful sing-a-long after lunch. Our school was full of cheer! We are looking forward to getting some snow soon because we start our After School Clubs next Monday! Students will participate in one of four different clubs; Outdoor Club, Math Club, Board Game Club, and Art Club. Teachers will be running the clubs for mixed grade level groups for four weeks. It was a huge success last year with every club full to capacity and we are looking forward to another successful club season!
On Tuesday, January 12th the NH Association of School Principals awarded ConVal High School Principal, Brian Pickering with the NH Secondary Principal of the Year Award! We are very happy that Brian has been recognized for this award and for the contributions he has made to the students and to the staff at ConVal High School.
