A few highlight pictures from the week

Always great to combine fun with meaning - I already posted some pictures last week from our Star Wars activity night, here are some of the organizers pulling together the donations they collected that night in support of the Shelburne Food Bank.
MS Student Council sorting their canned food donations from their Star Wars Activity Night last Friday

Believe it or not today marks the 91st first day of school - and a walk through our first grade classroom finds that we are hard at work on both literacy and math - love these two pictures that Pati grabbed on her walk-around this week.

Also this week, Meteorologist Tom Messner shared his wealth of weather knowledge with the 3rd grade classes.   The students have been studying weather including weather forecasting, fun weather facts, as well as other specific weather elements. Tom gave the students  a close-up look "behind the scenes" at the TV station about how the weather broadcast is created. The visit was highlighted on the Thursday night news!
Yes that's Tom Messner - sharing a weather forecast lesson with our third graders

A big wave that will got SCS a feature spot on the Channel 5 News Thursday night!
Outside - the work continues on our renovation.   If you drop off on School Street you've probably grown numb to the worn out 1967 windows that line the E and the C Wing.   However the D Wing which is almost ready to welcome classes next month features beautiful new windows as well as brick foundation and metal siding above to replace the rotting plywood on the old.   This summer all the 1967 windows will be upgraded to look like this - can't wait!

The "old" look - soon to be replaced

The new look - this will be on all of our C wing (ie. art, music and K classrooms) as well as the E Wing
And who doesn't love a nice tile job - and perhaps knowing that it is the wall of our new wing bathrooms you can appreciate how excited it is to see a non-porous, easily cleaned surface that looks great right behind our typical bathroom amenities.   Inside and out - things are looking good and hopefully going to stay that way for years to come :-)
