Week of April 16

Please note that informational papers for scheduling spring conferences went home Thursday or will go home on Monday with students.  Here is a copy of the paper:

Mr. Murphy may be at a conference on May 4. If that happens, he will have alternative hours for conferences as well as feedback left with Mr. Gleim.

Below are a few recent photos of students'  reconstruction of the first successful Virginia colony at Jamestown.  They have been doing an excellent job, and more photos will be shared as the work progresses! 

- showing what a palisade is (the fort walls) with popsicle sticks

- attempting to create origami models of canons (and showing great patience)

- creating miniature tents for the settlers
Palisades are almost done, and green, origami cannons are outside the walls

Week of April 9

This Friday, April 13, is an in-service day.  Students will not be at school. 

School conferences are coming up in early May; scheduling information is in the works.

Thursday afternoon this week, students will watch a performance of this year's drama play: Olivia!  Congratulations to our performers and stage crew who have been working to make this a success!

These are photos from our "Cocoa with Your SRO!" celebration event last Thursday.  

Students enjoyed about twenty minutes chatting with Officer Langevin about their prepared questions and impromptu questions over a cup of hot chocolate.

Thank you to Officer Langevin for his time!
