In kindergarten, we read The Colour Monster, a book about a monster who’s feelings are all mixed up. He learns that he can sort his feelings into colors. We worked with Jeannie Connolly to make our own color monsters. One side of our monsters are green for when he is calm, and one side is all colors for when he feels mixed up.
As part of our Arts Integration Program, Jeannie Connolly hosted a walking tour of downtown Antrim with our 3rd grade students.Did you know there were 12 schools in Antrim, Edmund’s was once a blacksmith and a butcher, and the name of our library can never change?
On Friday, October 5th, Antrim Elementary 4th graders visited to Sturbridge Village. We had many dedicated family members there as chaperones to share in the historic fun. Some of the popular activities were seeing blacksmiths at work, interviewing the village attorney, and seeing animals at Freeman Farm. It was a beautiful day and students and their families had an awesome time exploring.
On October 15th AES will begin our two week long “Pennies for the PTO” campaign. Ten percent of the funds raised will be donated to the local chapter of End 68 Hours of Hunger with the balance going to the PTO to help fund PTO sponsored programs for our students.
