Open House
Despite the September heat, we had a wonderful Open House night on Tuesday! Thank you to all the families who came to explore the building and meet their child's teacher!

The Power of Positive Thinking
This bulletin board says it all! It's all about how you think and speak that can determine how successful you will be!

Say Cheese!
LaPrade studio was here this week to take our fall pictures. A retake date will be made available as soon as it is scheduled.

Outdoor Recess Rocks!
I caught the fourth graders enjoying the warm weather during their recess time this week!

Science Mystery Boxes
Mrs. Dagenais's students put on their detective hats while shaking several mystery boxes this week. Based on the sounds they heard, the students documented the properties that described the items they heard in the boxes.

Have You Read a Good Book Lately?
Fifth graders created projects for Open House using a book they recently completed. These awesome projects made it look like the students were all sitting at their desks reading a good book!

Command, Woof! Exclamation, Bark!
Mrs. Tedisky's students worked on an activity to master the difference between commands and exclamations. 

Take A Look At Me Now!
Mrs. Fitzpatrick's class did a great job creating self portraits!

Fourth and Fifth Grade Designs
Fourth and fifth grade students have kicked off the year with some great projects, assignments, and ideas! Look at all the greatness captured in the hallways this week!

PTO Ice Cream Social
We kicked off the year on Friday night with our first big PTO event: The Welcome Back Ice Cream Social! Thanks to the Ice Cream Lady we had lots of delicious ice cream! New this year we had an AMAZING assortment of raffle prizes, a visit from Trax the mascot of the Worcester Railers hockey team, a magician, face painting, and some carnival games! We even had our spirit wear available for sale! A huge thanks to Melissa Johnson and all of the volunteers who helped to make this such a successful event!
