Soccer practice was cancelled this week. A couple of the kids did not see any problem with having the first soccer practice with snow on the field.   They will just have to hope the weather is better next week. If the weather cooperates it will be next Wednesday right after school.

Spring vacation is the week of: April 18

Spring concert is Monday, June 6 at 6:30. So far now the last day of school is June 7.

Sally’s class have started making puppets for their show in May. THEY ARE GOOD.

We are leaving this in the newsletter again this week about Sally’s class puppet show. The kids started building their puppets this week. We are still collecting materials for building puppets. We need the following list. Actually looking at this list, many of these materials can be picked up at the recycling in Londonderry.

1.      Large pieces of card board.

2.      We need one extra-large piece-refrigerator box size and 8 approximately 3 x 4 foot pieces that have no folds in them.  (From re-cycling)

3.      Newspaper-the real stuff-no shiny colored paper. (New York Times is good paper)

4.      A toy lawn mower that we can borrow for the show.

5.      2 small squirt guns we can borrow for the show.


On Saturday, April 16, there will be a talent show at the Townshend Town Hall. There is a free dinner at six and the show upstairs at seven. The Windham School singers have been asked to participate. If your child is able to join us for this event, please let Sally know soon. She needs to sign up ahead of time, and wants to be sure she has enough students before she does. We will also play some songs on ukuleles.

Mr. PJ’s class tested MondayTuesday and Wednesday morning. With donations from parents he cooked a breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast, along with fruit and juice.  Thank you.

There are baby turkeys at Meadows Bee Farm. The children have enjoyed watching them. They have also been planting greens in the green house.

Amy Carson made macaroni and cheese for this week’s lunch. This helped Lisa out, relieving her of having to get in here and get a hot meal ready by lunch time.  Thank you everyone who helps out.
