On Monday students presented their Black History Month poster projects. This week they are either writing research papers on their BHM poster person, or their reading responses to Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curits. Everyone has now moved on to, or finished, reading Behind Rebel Lines by Seymour Reit, and we’ve begun discussing the Civil War in class.
Additionally, students made progress on their textile projects with Anna! We can’t wait to see the final result!
On Friday, Environmental Science guest Isobel Arthen come in to work with the kids. She led them through an experiment about wetland models to observe the ecosystem services they provide, especially around pollution and flood control.
David Ruggles Center Field Trip: Friday, March 13th. We’ll have a shortened academic and lunch/recess time to make it to Florence for 1pm.
Half Days & Parent Teacher Conferences: On March 18th and 19th. Pick up will be at 12:30pm on both days, and we’ll have conference slots every hour until 4:30.
Lowell Field Trip, EARLY ARRIVAL: On Friday, March 27th we will be going on our second trip to the Tsongas Industrial History Center this year to do their “Industrial Watershed” program. In order to be there on time we will need to leave school at 8am! We apologize for the inconvenience but think it will be a great trip. As always we will do our very best to be back by 3:30, but sometimes we do hit traffic on the way back. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility: parental support makes these wonderful educational opportunities for our students possible!
