Congratulations to Livie!
Congratulations to all who participated in the elementary yearbook cover contest. This year the judges had a difficult time selecting from all the quality entries. Students achieving honorable mention were Corinna Donovan, Quinn Farnell and Catherine Washburn. The finalists who will all be featured in this year’s book are Tommy Linehan, Summit Wallace, Kendl Santelli, and Malia Olson. Livie Nute’s artwork will adorn the cover!



Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
A reminder that this Thursday, May 7 is our last Teacher Appreciation Luncheon. I have only had about a half dozen responses so far and as you know it takes many more to be successful. This month’s theme is “Favorite Community Cookbook Recipes.” You can choose your own favorite if you don’t have your cookbook yet. It also coincides with National Teacher Appreciation Week so let’s make sure they get the message: We appreciate all they do! I still need help with cleanup beginning about 2:30. Have your dishes to the teachers lounge beginning about 10:30 a.m. and up until 1 p.m. Let me know by email or call 349-0234 what you plan on bring. Thanks again to all of you who make this happen! —Colette

Poetry Blooms, A Thank You
A big thank you to everyone involved in our first annual Poetry Blooms: A Spring Celebration of Literacy. It was a great success and many students had a chance to shine while reciting poetry. Special thanks to Becky Winter, Sandy Robinson, Scottie Early-Moss, Mike, all the parents, and the K-5 teachers. It was a true community school event. We hope to make it even better next year. Contact your student’s teacher with your ideas for next year!

Brown Bag Lunches
Students should plan on “brown bagging” their own lunches the last week of school as the kitchen needs to take inventory, pack and move out for construction. We are looking forward to a new kitchen and a new “commons,” formerly the cafeteria and MPR, which will be fully operational by the start of school next fall. Thank you to Kathy and her entire crew for a phenomenal year! The climate, food service, etc. have never been better!
