Deadline For Year End Surveys
Please take a minute to fill out the school survey as well as the PEF survey. I hope to have everyone’s responses by June 10th. We really want to hear your opinions on what we are doing well and where we can improve. Comments are especially helpful. Thank you!
Our third trimester’s study of Journeys and Cycles culminated in a wonderful celebration Wednesday evening. Students presented projects on topics such as the Underground Railroad, Route 66 and cells. There were plays, songs and many items on display. One classroom was even transformed into an ocean full of sea creatures. It is always wonderful to see how excited the children are to share what they have learned.
Lost and Found
Our lost and found table is spilling over with items. Please remind your child to check for items they left behind. Anything still here at the end of the school year will be donated to charity.
This week’s star students recognized for their perseverance were: Bindi, Charlotte, Devansh, Gaby, Julia, Myleigh, Spencer and Talia. Great job!
Mrs. Fesh’s Class Share
Each of Mrs. Fesh’s students chose one of their Journeys & Cycles projects to share with everyone. These included Route 66 Scrapbooks, Personal Journey sunglasses posters, and 3D butterfly life cycles. Then 3 students taught all Polaris students a new song that Izzy created called the Bobby Pin song.
Look For Library Books
The end of the year is coming up fast, so now’s the time to think about returning books to the school library. Most, but not all of our books have a sticker on the back that says “Property of Polaris Charter School Library.” If you find other books at your house that you don’t recognize as belonging to your household, please ask your kids if they came from the school library.
If you’d like to add to our library, please take a look at the library book wish list here:
In an attempt to streamline the donation process for families and for the school, we have set up wish lists on the websites for NE Paper & Supply and Amazon.com. Follow the links below to see the items we need. You can order online and they will ship directly to the school. In addition, Polaris will get money back from both sites. NE Paper & Supply will give us 10% credit for every item ordered. Amazon.com gives us 0.5% towards Polaris on every order placed through Amazon Smile. You can increase the benefits even more by ordering an Amazon card through the SCRIP program. Thank you to everyone who supports our school! If you have any questions, feel free to contact Michelle Mathieu in the Front Office at 603-634-0034.

June PEF Meeting – Thursday, June 11th, 7 PM at the school
We will hold elections for the 2015-2016 PEF Board, Thursday June 11th at 7:00, as we now have volunteers for every PEF Board position!
But that doesn’t mean we don’t need YOU! We still need committee members and volunteers. The Board can’t do it on their own. Bring your ideas, tell us about your skills, interests and talents. Together we can make next year the best PEF year yet!
In order to run the after school enrichment program next year, the PEF is looking for an individual who will volunteer to keep things running smoothly during the school year. Arielle, Tara and Abby are willing to do most of the planning over the summer, and put together a brochure. For more details on this opportunity, email Brianna and Ali at firstname.lastname@example.org. Without a volunteer for this crucial role, there will not be Enrichment programs for the 2015-2016 school year.
End of Year Picnic – TOMORROW – Saturday June 6th noon to 4:00pm at Elm Brook Park (Rain date June 7th)
