I cannot believe that we are at the end of May! The second graders put on a fabulous Memorial Day program this week. We also held our Special Olympics this week, another great annual event.

Memorial Day Program
The second graders, under the direction of their teachers and music teacher, Mr. Rheaume, gave us an AMAZING show! They shared songs, poems, the Gettysburg Address, and other interesting facts about Memorial Day. Thank you to all those that came out for this highly anticipated yearly tradition.

Special Olympics: School Day Games
This week we gathered in the name of friendly competition and fun to celebrate our school day games. Mrs. Urquhart, Mrs. Nasuti, along with Eric Archambault from Special Olympics MA, Superintendent Yvon, Officer Fulone, and State Representative Joseph McKenna kicked off a morning of celebration, athleticism, and fun! Congratulations to all of our athletes and their teachers who participated! A special thanks to parents and students for coming to cheer on our amazing athletes!

Third Grade Hatches Chicks
As part of their unit on Life Cycles, grade three students incubated and hatched chickens. We had an excellent hatch this year with over 20 chicks making their way out of their eggs!
