Dear Parents,                                                                                     

This week, our Lower Wing students went to the Montshire museum for a special science program; grade 4 students experienced ‘Step Up Day’ as they met with next year’s 5th grade teachers and learned more about ‘life in the Upper Wing’.  Students in the Upper Wing are completing and posting their final math projects showing several visual representations of concepts from geometry, algebra and statistics.  The 7thgraders are writing the 8th grade prophecy, which they will share next week. And the 5th grade hosted their senior pen pals for lunch!

Mark Your Calendars for upcoming events next week:   

Monday June 18: Grade 5, 6. 7 and 8 will travel to the NH Seacoast Science Center; they will be returning at about 5 pm to campus.
