Students at Stratton School made a large “Get Well” poster for Mr Bellwood who is recovering from surgery. Mr Bellwood came in for a visit during lunch so the students could present him with the poster. We look forward to having Mr Bellwood back at our school soon!
Grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade had their first “Pick A Better Snack” visit. This is a program through Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County (HCC) based in Farmington. They visit local schools once a month to educate students about nutrition through hands on activities.
Grades 6-8 went on a field trip to The Common Ground Fair in Unity, ME. Students explored the fair grounds and learned about organic agriculture and farming in Maine.
This week during Grades 3-5 OOB Friday students participated in a rotation of activities. Students are tasked with building a frame that will serve as a place for building during recess times, students began their design process by collecting measurements and brainstorming placement and designs for the frame. Students also dug up and split perennials from some of the garden beds that have become overgrown. Lastly, students continued their work with knot tying skills.
Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade had their first “Discovery Detour” Friday afternoon. During this first week students completed a scavenger hunt using their 5 senses. They were in mixed grade level groups and focused on teamwork, collaboration, and our ROAR expectations.
