Dear Parents,                                                                                     

Happy New Year and welcome back!  It’s been a short week, but we’re seeing lots of activity all around our campus.  The energy level is up and students are focused on learning as they:

  • applied their mapping skills to identify specific geographic places and features with Ms. Tilton;

  • worked with 4 Winds volunteers to identify predator and prey, as well as their adaptations that make them successful;

  • completed fraction calculations and made the connection to decimals with Mr. Budd;

  • identified main ideas and supporting details in reading passages with Ms. Varga;

  • compared ice cube melting rates in different liquids with Mr. Colombo;

  • read about snow horses coming to life with Ms. Jones;

  • conducted simulated interviews with notable American colonists for Ms. Dangelo;

  • wrote essays from their library readings with Ms. Udelhofen.

Starting next Friday (January 11), we will begin our Ski/LIFE days. Any students who wish to take a bag lunch with them to Sunapee or Lebanon for their Ski or Swim lesson days will need to let The Abbey Group know so they can prepare a sufficient number of lunches each of those days.

Mark Your Calendars!  

January 7:  School Board Meeting (Budget discussion) at 6:30 in the Library

January 8:  CCPTO Meeting at 7:00 pm in the Library

January 11:  First Ski/LIFE Friday!

January 21:  Martin Luther King Jr. Day - No School

Lost/Found items are piling up – please come and claim your boots, jackets, mittens and other clothing.  Also, in addition to the snow, it’s been very icy around the playground; please make sure your child comes to school with boots and snowpants so they can be safe and play safely on those surfaces.                                 

Have a safe and relaxing weekend; warmest regards,

Jennifer Prileson, Principal
