Third Graders Ready to Wow You at the Thanksgiving Program
Chimes, drums, boomwhackers, oh my! The students are shifting into high gear preparing for next week’s Thanksgiving concert. This year’s program involves a lot of moving parts, varied instrumentations, and a great deal of independent musical responsibility for each performer. As the performances come together, it’s wonderful to see each student’s confidence grow as they begin to take full ownership of their part of the puzzle. Come out and support your students in this challenging program they’ve put together for our community. And, with Nat King Cole, Rossini, and Santana on the program, where else will you hear this combination of music?!
Congratulations, PMFS Soccer Team!
Big Happenings in the Little House
What have the Dragonflies been up to? So far this month they have…
Met (and fallen in love with!) their First Grade reading buddies:
Baked muffin-shaped scones with Jacob and his dad, John:
And had a VERY exciting visit from Spencer the guinea pig:
Busy Beavers at Beyond the Bell
Some imaginative students made a fort out of wood they found scattered around campus. They worked together to design and build it, with very little help from teachers and staff. It’s now quite a popular spot to play!
Plymouth’s Peaceable Kingdom
For Color Day last week, Gillian conceived of this great all-school art project: she turned one of Edward Hicks’ Peaceable Kingdom paintings into a huge line drawing, cut that drawing up into squares, and had the students color each square as if it were a stand-alone piece. When Gillian put all the squares back together, a new work of art was revealed. Different individuals coming together to make a beautiful whole –what a perfect metaphor for community!
