Habits of Mind: “Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to learn”

Monday, December 21  Pasta dinner put on by Mr. PJ’s class and the students going to Keewaydin in May. The next day’s lunch will be leftovers from the night before.

Tuesday, the 22nd is our Craft Fair in the afternoon. This is being coordinated through Mrs. Kehoe.

Wednesday, December 23, is the morning we will be going ice skating at the Vermont Academy rink. We will need parents to drive and welcome everyone to skate with us. Children need helmets, mittens and snow pants. If your child has skates at home, be sure they bring them.

Before we leave to go skating at Vermont Academy we will have an all school meeting which will include the gift exchange. It is a half day and from skating they will go home for the beginning of Christmas recess. Please be sure your child brings in a gift for the person whose name they drew, by next Monday. Yes, we know we are doing over kill, but do not want to get caught short on a gift. If there’s a problem let us know ASAP.                                                                          

After our holiday, the newest art project will be the students doing a mural of a farm. The finished art will be on a piece of plywood the same size as the one we have hanging in the All Purpose room now. This week each child signed up for what part of the scene they would be drawing and painting. They drew a sketch of it. Then by groups they lay on the floor and started to fill the four foot wide picture in.    Erelyn hopes to have time during the next two art days before her time here is over to give all of us an idea of how this will be done.  

After Lisa cooks us up a fine meal on Tuesdays she stays and helps with art.  She stays in contact with Erelyn during the week and gets supplies ready ahead of time. This is a big help, saving everyone a lot of time. Thanks, Lisa.

Lunch this week was two kinds of sweet sausage, with peppers and onions, penne pasta with homemade alfr edo sauce, salad with black olives. Oh, and there was some really good homemade kimchi from the farm that Sally’s class made. Beth and Susan Persa are consistently here helping Lisa. Ladies you have a nice break coming up. Enjoy.

Mrs. Kehoe made up the sign for the pasta dinner Monday night.   Gather family and friends for a night of pasta before another round of holiday food and desserts. See you here.
