Dear SES Families ~
The fifth graders have been enjoying fun activities (Fort Ticonderoga, above) and the Egg Drop, below. Although the forecast was foreboding for the trip to New York, the weather cooperated, for the most part, and a great time and valuable learning experience were had by all!
The always exciting 5th grade egg drop did not disappoint! Students and spectators had a blast and we want to congratulate the two winning teams: Spencer Hughes, Remi Stewart and Arianny Garcia Brito, along with Bennett Eliason, Kane Hatch, and Brady Cashman.
Girls on the Run concluded their 8 week life skills and empowerment program with a non-competitive 5K at the Champlain Valley Expo on Saturday. This amazing program inspires 3rd – 8th grade girls to define their lives on their own terms through lessons that encourage positive emotional, social, and physical development. Our SES girls added their personal spin this year by writing notes of thanks to all of the faculty and staff members who have helped them throughout the year and painted individual stones with expressions of gratitude and love that were placed in the garden bower.
Community Meeting on Friday was special, inasmuch as Addison Kneale was awarded the 2021 – 2022 artwork prize and all of her peers were thrilled to congratulate her.
Reminder from Jennifer Faith, our wonderful Librarian: It’s that time of year! All books should have been returned by June 1st. We still have 260 books that need to be returned – please help them find their way back to the library.
Check under your bed, behind the couch, and on your bookshelf as books have a funny way of hiding and are rarely lost. Please let Mrs. Faith know if your books are truly lost so you can make a plan to replace your books.
A shout-out to Ms. Johnson’s Kindergarten class for being the first class to return all of their books! They will be receiving a treat from me! Which class will be the next to return all of their books?
Today our students participated in Step Up Day! They had the opportunity to visit the classrooms they will be moving into in the next school year. They engaged in lively activities, got to know the teachers a little bit better and learned about the highlights of the upcoming year.
This week will be filled with lots of fun activities and field trips for individual classes (see the Important Dates calendar), but none more so than the “Stowe and Tell” event tomorrow (Tuesday, 6/7) at 1:00 PM, with a special visit from Stowe Public Safety and partners. Fire trucks will be by the rink, ambulances and rescue equipment will be on our playground blacktop and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Air & Marine Operations will land a helicopter in the field. Public Safety staff will be supporting each area and you are invited to meet some members of the team. Many thanks to Fred Whitcomb from the Stowe Police Department and Alex Schmidt for facilitating this amazing event.
We are thrilled that the student body may now assemble in the gym for Community Meeting, and parents and community members are invited to attend. Our last traditional Community Meeting will take place at 8:30 AM on Friday, June 10th with Brian Barney presenting and Tamara North’s 4th graders leading “Guess Who.”
SES / 6 Day Rotating Schedule ~ What does this mean? This year we have a 6 day Unified Arts rotating schedule. It will be important to know what day it is on the schedule so that your child/ren will have the important materials and supplies needed for their Unified Arts classes.
