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.
The AES PTO Gear Store is open now until 9/29.
All orders will be sent home with children a few weeks after the sale ends. All gear is screen printed by a local family and we are happy to be able to support Blueberry Hill Design Works while supporting the PTO.
We had a warm and overcast first day back in the garden on September 13th. The students found the garden overflowing with plants. Jumping right into this season’s theme of Field Investigation, students searched for evidence of Summer garden care. We devoured a fresh snack of ground cherries, basil, kale, and chives.We brought fully developed radish plants into the shade to inspire scientific drawings in the garden journals .
On Friday, Antrim Elementary Eagles met their reading buddy for the year. Each class pairs up on Friday afternoons with a class from a different grade level. It’s a great way to end our week and share an enjoyment for reading together. Students often pick out books especially to read with our buddies.
February 23, 2018 was Art Day at AES. What a special day and we greatly appreciate all of the volunteers that came to share it with us. Whether it was creating sea creatures for our Children in the Arts Day mural, making colors disappear by creating spinning tops, learning team work by building a castle,
After reading Officer Buckle & Gloria by Peggy Rathman, kindergarten students in Mr. Stultz’ class wrote their own safety rules for AES, and they are currently creating a safety rules book of their own. The Kindergarten students presented their posters and safety rules to the A.E.S community during assembly.
The Third Graders at AES have constructed a bird feeding station outside of their classroom windows. They have been working with the Harris Center learning about birds. The students will be observing and recording the birds they see this winter, and they will send their data to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in New York.
On November 15, 2017, Antrim Eagle Groups created children’s book themed wreaths for display at the annual Antrim Festival of the Trees. You can see them all on display at the Antrim Library on November 25th from 10-4, and any time after that when the library is open through the holidays.
