Dear Fellow Moose,

I did a double take as I was examining the calendar and realized that half of the week next week is in JUNE. These last few months have been abuzz with activity, special presentations and learning.

Today we were delighted by Mr. Bender and the SES bands playing toe-tapping numbers. They will perform tonight at 5:30 as well. Bravo musicians! We were also transported into the past today, as 6th graders presented their hero research in their Living History Museum. Heroes came alive in our gym ( in full costume) and told us about their amazing lives. The sixth graders did a wonderful job researching and writing about what it means to be a hero as well as identifying and studying a particular hero to them.

Next week the PTO is presenting "Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader" on May 30th at 6:30pm. We have many special guests from town as well as teachers participating in this 5th grade level trivia game! It should be quite entertaining! Please consider coming to this fun event.

Tony Vacca, a renowned world rhythms percussionist will perform for our whole school on Thursday, June 1st at 2:00 pm! He will also lead a workshop for 5th and 6th graders at 1:00. We are thrilled to have this talented artist visit and perform at our school!

On Friday, June 2nd our student led drama club will perform their 3rd annual masterpiece musical at 2:00 and 6:30. Students in grades 2-5 are participating in this production. Special thanks to fifth graders Forrest Carvalho and Arin Andrews for leading and directing this adventure and to Becca Flinker for facilitating and supporting it. Events like this are what makes our small school so special. Thanks to the families, staff and students who encouraged this opportunity.

I wish you all a very happy long weekend.

See you Tuesday May 30th.
