  Last Day of School

Our last day of school was originally set for Thursday, June 16th.  However due to the many extra hours we have this year as well as the fact that teachers will be starting Responsive Classroom training June 20, our LAST DAY is a half day on Wednesday, June 15th. Parent/Teacher/Student conferences will be Wednesday afternoon and Friday as scheduled. Thursday will be a staff workshop day.

During this week, each morning I asked students to share times when they showed perseverance. Times such as learning to ride a bike, learning to skate and performing in a play when it was scary were some of the things mentioned.

Torrey also shared a poster that she made with a quote about perseverance:


Star Students

This week’s Star Students were: Colton, Crosby, Lasya, Leo, Mayla, Sophia and Viveanna. Way to persevere!



 Perham Class Share

Today we acted out a silly song that we have been singing in class called “Don Gato.” Although the song did not have much to do with perseverance, we needed to stay focused and fix problems with our play in three days.  This took teamwork and dedication.

Buddy Time 

Students in Ms. Haynes and Ms. Gilbert’s classes got together this week. The Intermediate students provided some assistance to Primary students with their projects. They were a great help!


Field Trip

Primary students had the opportunity to visit the Seacoast Science Center/Odiorne Point on Thursday where they experienced a presentation with a naturalist and then explored tide pools. Luckily the weather cooperated and it was a great day!

PEF News

Pennies for Polaris

Do you or your students have pennies or other spare change at home? Maybe in a piggy bank, or a jar, or in the cushions of your couch? Turn that change into playground fun! From *May 20th thru June 3rd*, the PEF is holding a penny drive.

All donations will go towards new equipment for the playground.

We want the students to be a big part of this fundraiser, so please encourage them to bring their coins in to school and ask family, friends and neighbors for their help too.

Pennies for Polaris, it just makes cents!

If you have any questions, please email me at alicia.ferrieo@yahoo.com.
