Every March, all voters in the district are provided with the opportunity to vote on the budget for the following school year.
In addition, there are some items that frequently appear and require voter approval, including acceptance of the auditor reports, appropriation of funds for the various district trust funds, and School Board member salaries.
Gloria and Dawn from The Antrim Grange came to visit third graders on Friday, March 16th. We learned about the Grange, and all of the things they have done for our communities, like busing students to school, getting electricity to everyone, and setting the number of days students have to go to school. They gave each third grader their own dictionary to keep!
Mrs. Zawacki’s class is learning about how animal body parts (adaptations) help the animals survive and make their lives easier. We started by reading The Snail’s Spell and What Does This Tail Do? to learn exactly how different animals use their body parts. Then Jeannie Connelly from the Conval Arts Integration Program came to do a project with our class.
Kindergarten students at AES have been working hard for over 100 days! We were fortunate to spend the 100th day of school with the “big kids” from GBS and CVHS. Sorting 100 marshmallows was exciting. Even following the “We don’t eat dirty marshmallows rule”. What could you build with 100 sweet, sugary, and very dirty marshmallows?
Art Day at AES 2018
Each year ConVal Art Integration collaborates with elementary schools to provide an all day Art Day experience. Jeannie Connolly meets with representatives of each school staff to design lessons and projects that connect with school ideas and learning. This year our Art Days are based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). It is a tremendous amount of work to organize and facilitate. It takes the collective support of all staff! The impact on student creativity and learning is well worth the work! Art Day also promotes community partnerships. Many visitors can be found throughout the school on Art Days either facilitating a project, sharing their expertise, or offering helping hands. I have heard many times from parents, staff and students, “I Love Art Day!”
3rd Annual Kindness Week
One of the things that makes Antrim Elementary School special is that we have four core values that are at the heart of everything we do. If you’ve ever been to one of our weekly assemblies, you’ve seen students recognized and celebrated for demonstrating one of our values of Kindness, Respect, Cooperation and Honesty and you’ve heard the school singing songs to remind ourselves that these are the values we’re all striving to embody.
The week of March 16th – 23rd, our school will be highlighting one of these values and will be participating in Kindness Week (our own version of the nationwide Great Kindness Challenge). This will be our third year celebrating Kindness week and students and staff will participate in activities ranging from reading stories about kindness and creating bookmarks with kind messages, decorating classroom doors with a kindness theme and performing kind acts both in the school community and beyond. This will be an engaging and exciting week where we all take time to remember that no act of kindness is too small.
