Our Robotics Club members are also hard at work on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Mr. Proehl, Mr. Lynch and Ms. Jones.  Our Basketball teams are all playing at Home against Mascoma tomorrow, Saturday Feb. 3; please come out and cheer them on at 11 am, noon and 1:00 pm in our gym.  Home games are also scheduled for the afternoons of Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 5 and 6.

Congratulations to students whose artwork is currently being shown at the Claremont Opera House gallery.  The theme is Kindness in Action, and the students’ work will be displayed through February 19.  Thanks to Ms. O’Connor for making that happen!
