8TH GRADE WREATH SALES
The holidays are closer than you think, and the 8th graders are selling wreaths! You can purchase a wreath from any 8th grader, or in the office. The 18” finished wreath is adorned with either a red or burgundy bow, and the price is $15.00. Proceeds from the sale help support the class activities at the end of the school year. Wreath Sales are through November 29, and will be ready for pick up on Tuesday, November 30, or one week later on Tuesday, December 6. (This is because we are receiving the wreaths in two lots.) Mrs. Fisher will remain after school until 5:30 pm on those two days for wreath pick up. Students will deliver their wreaths to the purchaser unless other arrangements are made. Please have the money collected when you come to pick up your wreaths.
RSU 1 collaborates with First Student to provide student transportation to school and home safely and efficiently. We request that students only ride their assigned bus to and from school unless extenuating circumstances are pre-approved through the school office. This allows the school district to more accurately conduct contact tracing when there is a positive COVID-19 case and reduce the potential number of quarantines. Thank you for your understanding and assistance with this matter.
8th GRADE FLOW ART
Congratulations to: Julianna Gustafson, Tabor Gale, Brody Overmiller, Brady Chubbuck, Caleb Longbottom, Kendall Darling, Ethan Wilson and Garrett Riley who were selected to participate in an art exhibition at the Patten Free Library. The show is focused on art that was created on the 8th grade FLOW trip that took place earlier this year. The artwork will be displayed from Thursday 11/17 until mid-December.
SNOW DAYS AND DELAYED STARTS
RSU1 will be returning to traditional snow days this winter. On days where there is inclement winter weather and roads are not safe, schools may have a delayed start, or the school building will be closed for the day. In addition to an automated phone call to each household, notice will be made on TV Channels 6, 8 and 13 beginning at 5:30am. School cancellations can also be heard over the following radio stations: WGAN 560 AM, WCLZ 98.9 FM, WPOR 101.9 FM, WJTO 730AM, WMGX 93.1 FM. Please remember that our schools are listed under RSU1, not individual towns. Please be sure the school has your correct phone number, so that you will receive all notifications.
The students in Intervention have been busy writing letters. Some students in second grade read about what happens to a letter when it is mailed at the post office. They then wrote a letter to a classmate, learning about the structure of a letter and the envelope. These letters were mailed so they can look for a letter to be delivered in their own mailboxes at home. A few fourth and fifth graders have been discussing and thinking about their reading identity. How do they feel about reading? What are some favorite books and authors? Where do they like to read? Who are they as a reader? What plans do they have to grow as a reader? These students have written a letter to their future selves or have created an identity web that will be opened in June. We are excited to see if any of our thinking changes.
