This time of year, there are always lots of exciting happenings at school.
Here are a few that have taken place in the past week or so.
Last Friday, we visited The Portland Museum of Art and focused on seeing animals and their habitats in art.
On Monday, we took a bus to the Community Center to see the district art show. We got to admire the amazing art work of students in grades K-12. The kids loved seeing their own creations on display. The show is going on until midday Friday and open to the public if you'd like to see it.
Yesterday, the 3rd graders performed a very impressive music program. We got to see a musical representation of an old Japanese fable, "The Stone Cutter" performed by Mrs. Grady's class. Ms. Johnson's class entertained us with some spirited patriotic songs as well.
Finally, we are lucky to have a high school senior from Cape Elizabeth High School, Rachel Holmes, working with us this week and next week as part of her Senior Transition Project. Not only is she a big help with reading and giving extra support to the kids, but they also love the attention of a cool teenager.
