On Wednesday, May 30, Antrim Elementary’s 4th graders went to Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. It was a lovely day with perfect weather. The students were engaged and respectful throughout the trip. They learned a lot about the various occupations which will be very helpful for their Colonial Fair Project.
We hatched 6 chicks in second grade this spring! The students have been so amazed to learn what is going on inside a fertilized egg each day until it hatches on Day 21. We candled the eggs and were able to see if the chick was growing. We even saw one chick moving its wings one time when we candled!

This week at AES has been filled with much kindness. The students were encouraged to practice random acts of kindness and to notice when others did. The students earned paper gumballs for their kindness acts which were displayed on a huge gumball machine. The week ended with an assembly in which community members were invited and celebrated for their support of AES.
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?
