The last soccer game was a BLAST. Parents and family members against the Wasps. Jack took at least five rolling falls, Jake now has a chipped tooth. Lucca was a great goalie, but dang also was Lisa for the parent’s team. Rihanna tried to hold her own against both her parents. Helena and her dad scrambled over the ball with him stumbling to make sure he did not knock her down. Nyah gave one good try to push her father out of the game and if we could have got rid of Rachel in front of the goal the Wasps would have scored more goals. Gracie is short but fast and persistent. Kylie hung in there and scored a few good kicks. And any time Lillie gets a straight kick, the ball is fast and high. Mary had to deal with a grandfather and mother in the game which was no problem, she just kept in there after the ball.


 A lady from the Brattleboro Art Museum will be here for an hour on Friday, October 28th, again for an hour on Monday the 31st. On Monday, November 7, we will be taking a field trip to the Museum.


At noon on October 28 we will go to the Mongolian Performance at Leland and Gray


Then that night is the Halloween Party (Oct 28) at the Windham fire House at 5:45. Judging is at six. Make sure you get there early so you can get in on the hay rides. There are hotdogs, cider and goodies galore. If you would like to bring along a party snack, the better the selection. Grapes or crackers and cheese are a nice change from all sweets.


SBAC testing will be the week of October 24. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium(SBAC) is a suite of computer-based tests in math and English language arts for third through eighth grade. What works really well is to have them come to the All Purpose room for English muffins, eggs and orange juice.  The biggest part of that seems to be that they eat, chat and relax and are more ready to start testing. There will be no homework next week.


This past Monday, we went to the pottery studio to make ceramic pumpkins. Per usual there were no duplicates, all originals.  Since they had been introduced to clay at the end of last year they quickly dove into creating their one of a kind pumpkin. We will be going to the studio again next Monday to glaze our pumpkins and other creations.
