On Friday, August 30th, the Antrim Elementary Eagles gathered for their first assembly of the year.
The students and staff came together with the school mascot to welcome new friends, practice being an Antrim Eagle, and sing together.
What a wonderful way to start the year!
Students enjoyed their first day of school at AES! They enjoyed meeting new friends, connecting with former ones, and starting the new year as Antrim Eagles!
AES students and families enjoyed seeing former friends and meeting new ones at the AES MEET & GREET on Tuesday, August 27th.
They were able to get a sneak peek at their new classrooms and meet their new teachers. Our new Kindergarten friends were able to try a short school bus ride for practice.

Welcome Back AES Families!
Can you believe it is August already? Before you know it, we will be back in full swing for the 2019-2020 academic year. I wanted to let you know about a few things that were happening over the summer, and a few things to look forward to shortly.
Students at AES just finished a month-long exposure to computer coding during their after school coding club. Organized by Mr. Stultz and Mrs. Syre-Hager, students had the opportunity to learn the basics of coding while working with kid-friendly themes such as Star Wars and Angry Birds. Dash, a programmable robot, made an appearance a few times where students took turns coding commands to made it move,
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.
