Learning About Gratitude, Butterfly Style
Last week the Butterfly class invited David and Scott, the maintenance team, for a special snack. The Butterflies wanted to show their appreciation for all of David and Scott’s hard work, especially the recent installation of a new shelf in their classroom. The students wrote a beautiful invitation, baked blueberry muffins, drew pictures, and decorated crowns for the grand event. Through activities like these, the Butterflies are learning kindness and how to be part of a community.
PMFS Theater Season Has Arrived
With the Fourth Grade Circus just a month away, we have officially entered theater season here at PMFS. After you see the Circus, come to ArtsFest in April for theater, art and music. And, of course, the Sixth Grade Musical in May.
The Sixth Graders have begun diving deep into preparation for the musical, learning songs and staging and designing elements for the production. This immersive process will go through almost the entire Spring, culminating in the world-premiere performances on May 3 & 4. The script is written by Gillian Pokalo with music by John B Hedges, and is inspired by the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf. There will also be opportunities for younger students in our community to participate and support the musical as ensemble or crew through a musical theater club we will run in April. More info will be coming home shortly!
Beyond the Bell Enjoys a Glimpse of Spring
BtB made the most of a rare winter thaw recently. They went to the blacktop for a change of pace, where kids got to stretch their legs and enjoy the beautiful weather! The children loved the chance to choose between basketball, four square, chalk drawings and…creative relaxing?
