AES had a wonderful Enchanted Forest evening which included the Scholastic Book Fair, Letterland activities, Masks and Castles activities, Dinner, Title 1 information and a Reading Room with Therapy Dogs. Pictured here is one of the three therapy dogs listening in as students read to each other.
To encourage students to respect themselves, each other and their surroundings, AES conducted a two week Respect Rollout. When demonstrating respect students were given a sheet of paper to create a “snowball”. The snowballs were gathered and a Snowman was created. Respect is one of the 5 core values of Antrim Elementary School.
As part of the the Children in the Arts’ 1st Festival of Light Lanterns parade in Peterborough on December 1st, AES students created lanterns. Prior to the Peterborough parade AES students lined the halls of AES with their lanterns for all to see.
