This week we showed love for our school, our community and our planet. Let’s start with a HUGE shout out to the organizers and attendees of this week’s Spaghetti Dinner, which was held at Manchester School of Technology, MST. The parent leads on this event were Amanda G and Meghan S. Our community partner, MST, fielded a talented and generous team of cooks, runners, and servers who were overseen by MST faculty. The crew kept the lines short and the yummy food in good supply. All funds generated by this event – approximately $500 – were donated to our school. We look forward to many other partner events with MST. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make the night a success!

Monday, April 22nd, is Earth Day. Since it is also the start of our April Vacation, we had a multifaceted celebration today to mark this important day. We began with a morning meeting where we read a book together, led by Ms. Mindy, about caring for our planet. Some Lower Elementary Students shared a recently completed research project about recycling and another duo read a poem about the earth. The meeting finished with a presentation by our students who are working on an all-school gardening project.
