Ms. Cooke's Kindergarteners reflected on their growth throughout this school year with pencil portraits. From Ms. Cooke: "I wanted to share with you the amazing portraits created by your children with only a pencil, from the fall and spring. I looked at them with each child and heard from them the ways they feel they have grown this year. These "exit interviews" were profoundly moving and I am constantly astounded by the self-knowing and wisdom of this group of very special humans!"
NMC students explored beach themed activities last week in Ms. Schieb's class.
SBRSD elementary students enjoyed Field Day 2022 this morning!
The New Day Club headed to Boston to walk the Freedom Trail, explore Quincy Market and see the Paul Revere House! Our students couldn't have been better ambassadors for SBRSD! We had an educational and fun day! This trip was generously funded by an Eagle Fund Grant, 2022.
From Ms. Johnston: "We are so excited to welcome Franco and Llyr back on campus! We need our pup friends more than ever- even for those who seem to be fine. Benefits of working with a therapy dog are many, both physically and emotionally. They include helping us feel calm and relaxed, lowering anxiety, alleviating loneliness, enhancing social engagement and interaction, reducing stress, reducing depression and increasing pleasure. Thank you Lisa and Honor for sharing your best friends with us. "

Thanks to a STARS residency grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Mount Everett students spent a week with Shawn Stevens from the Stockbridge Munsee Band of Mohicans. Shawn shared his history and culture with us through presentations and projects. Students also worked after school and all weekend to build a wigwam, all the while learning about traditional Mohican practices. You are welcome to visit the wigwam at the Sheffield Historical Society.
