Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to learn”

Wed. May 28: Kathleen Meeks, of Maybelle Farm in Wardsboro, was here Wednesdayto do a wet felting workshop with the children. Kathleen has forty sheep, with a name for each one. Sally's class went first and made wooly soap and wool beads. Ms. Meeks is very talented, leading everyone through the workshop in a clear and concise way. Mr. PJ's class went in at 2:00 to do the same wet felting. What she picked for everyone to learn was a good choice. There was no pass or fail, it was creating out of different color strips of wool something that appealed to their eye.

Monday, June 2nd: Spring concert at 6:30. There will be a puppet show in Sally's classroom before the concert by the first and second graders. Primary concert children can come anytime after 6:00 to show their parents their work. The show will be at 6:15.
