We've had such a fantastic first week of school. The kids quickly got back in the groove of school life and are thriving in the classroom. We just published out first piece of writing which was modeled after the book The Best Part of Me. I'll post final drafts soon. For now, check out a few of their photos!

Troy Kingsbury stopped by with a few friends today! Every WES student got to check out the race cars, get autographs, prizes and meet Miss. Vermont! The kids who filled out their entire Race to Read form got to sign not only Troy's hood but Cameron Ouellette's too! Look for them on the Thunder Road track this year!
And don't forget...if you finish your form, bring it with you and find Troy! He'll be there on June 16th giving away hot dogs and RACE CAR RIDES!!!!!!
Today we popped our day 9 balloon! 4th graders crafted some very detailed paper airplanes then we had a friendly (okay not too friendly) competition! The most common distance was 19 feet. Ciera's soared way past our tape measure and went an estimated 40+ feet! Way to go girl!

We had a blast today! The kids learned so much while visiting Small Step Farm! We planted asparagus and learned that it will produce for the next 15-20 years but the catch is, the first two years are maturing years! The kids noted that they could come back when they're almost 30 and eat from the same plant! Cool.
We also planted potatoes, lettuce, kale, chard and parsley! We picked out veggies for the WES garden and finished our trip with maple creemees. TOP DAY!
