Circle Letter 4/10/15

April 10, 2015
Dear Families,
       If you are looking for something fun to do with the family tonight (and support our schools) plan on attending the wonderful Kittery Live Talent Show.   The event is held at Shapleigh School with Mitchell School performers beginning at 4 pm!  Good luck to our performing students!
       And next week be sure to show your personality and silliness… with our school wide Spirit Week!  Monday: Crazy Hair Day; Tuesday: Clash Day; Wednesday:  Green Day (Earth Appreciation!) We will also be going to the Traip Climbing Wall on Wednesday so good “green” climbing clothes are recommended.  Thursday: Red Sox Day.  And just a reminder there is no school on Friday before our April vacation.

       Our Native American Studies are really underway at this point.  This week students have been selecting a region and tribe to research independently in class. Our research will include books, web sites, videos, documentaries, legends and a guest speaker.  Each student will also be making a diorama depicting tribal life of his or her tribe and region. More information on this school/ home project will come next week.  However, each student will need a shoebox (no bigger boxes please) to work on this project… so be on the look out!  We are also in need of toilet paper and paper towels cardboard rolls… We will use them for a few Native American crafts!  Please bring in any items you might have next week.  Lastly, our class art marker supply needs replenishing. Please consider making a classroom contribution with a package or two.  Thank you for the support and help.   Have a great (warm!) weekend… J
