Reminder: With the end of year approaching, we need to get all School Lunch balances cleared up, so please make sure to help us get it all settled in the next few weeks. Any extra money can be carried over to next year, but we especially need to make sure all 8th graders are paid up before they can graduate.

Below are two links, one for students and one for parents, where you can take a short 10 question survey to help us see where we need to improve in meeting the needs of every child.

Progress Reports went home this week for middle school students, so if you did not get one yesterday, make sure to check today!

 

I was recently asked if the Fishercats Field Trip this year was taking place instead of the instead of the Camp Takodah trip we had taken the last few years. The answer is yes, as it seemed like it was time for a change and the trip looked like a good opportunity to learn while having fun and coming together as next year’s middle school. We would like to have ALL students participate and please notify us if a student is not planning on participating as we will have work they can do here on the things we will be discussing on the trip, such as the history of our primary and the election system.  If permission slips were not sent in today, please send them in on Monday, thanks!

Thank you to all who were able to attend the Open House event this week. Those who were able to stay for the dedication ceremony and tour (after the transition/move up hour) of the Bradley/Patty Outdoor Classroom, witnessed something really special. It was very heartwarming to see the pride and excitement of our students who participated in this project and to hear them describe what it has meant to them. Thank you also to everyone who helped with the woodchips after, when the rain finally stopped for the first time all day!

 

KHS/CCC Summer Camp Opportunity: Available for Grades 5-8 from June 27-30. 8am to 1pm each day. Cost is only $40 and that includes lunch!  Packets are coming home today and there are only 80 spots (out of 100) left. (If your child does not bring home a packet today we have extra!)

 

There is a Westwood Center (Keene) resident/World War II veteran who will be attending an “Honor Flight” to Washington DC to see the WWII Memorial later this month.  A part of this program is the giving of cards after, to thank them for their service. It anyone is interested, please send your cards to the school (by 5/20 at the latest) marked “Honor Flight Thank You” and we will make sure they get them.

 

A huge THANK YOU to Sue Rogers who donated a portable basketball system for the gym this week! (We are still looking to purchase one more but would gladly accept a donation of one in really good condition.)

 

The next WYSI meeting will be on May 10th at 5:30 to discuss the sports banquet, a few budget item requests, and where the future of the organization is heading (we need some more people to lend a hand in order for our group to continue!).  Then you can stay around for the PTA to see how that dedicated group can be helped!
