Antrim 4th graders have been working on a State Symbols project with Jeannie Connolly, our Arts Enrichment Coordinator. The 4th graders consulted text and internet sources to become experts with their chosen state symbol, wrote a paragraph and drew an illustration, and then put together their books with Jeannie, Mrs. Storro, and family helpers.
Community volunteer Mr. Tenney came to help AES fourth grade students learn to play Cribbage after school. Thanks to Muzart teacher Mrs. Storro for dreaming up the idea of introducing this wonderful mathematical game to our school. What a nice way to spend the afternoon during the cold weather months.
This November AES Third Graders worked with the Harris Center and The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests to create a Salamander Population and Adaptation Research Collaboration Network (SPARCnet) Site at McCabe Forest. The SPARCnet site consists of two plots, each containing 50 wooden boards laid out in a 5×10 array.
NEA-NH President, Megan Tuttle, and Manchester Monarchs Players came to Third Grade as part of the “Read Across New Hampshire with the Monarchs” program. After reading, the players answered questions and signed items for our classrooms! The players were impressed with our newest school value, GRIT. The Monarchs give out GRIT awards after each game –
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.
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.
