"When I grow up I want to be some kind of engineer; I'm just not sure which type yet."

Biome Brochures
4th grader Ryan Naylor shows off his Biome Brochure to South Bristol school board Member Clay Gilbert and Superintendent of Schools Steve Bailey.  Several Students from Mrs. Snow's class shared this type of Informational Writing during last month's school board meeting.  Students were able to show how they collected research and created brochures with text features designed to highlight the important components of their Biome.  Ms. Glidden, our tech integrator provided support for the students.

The Puppets are Coming, 
The Puppets are Coming!!!
     The Bread and Puppet Theater, a professional company from Vermont, will return to SBS after a decade hiatus.  Our students and staff will work with these puppeteers all week using "Character Counts" as our theme.  We will be making puppets, writing scripts and performing theatrics to highlight our 8 Character Traits we want to foster in our children.  There will be two shows on Friday the 18th (1:00pm and 6:00pm).  Attendance my students is required.

Helpful Hint:  As creative juices flow, so does paint!  Please have your child wear clothing which is appropriate for this type of messy work.  Fashion needs to be replaced with practical clothes which you don't mind paint being spilled on.  Smocks are encouraged!!!

Notes Needed, Please
    Parents are reminded to send a note to Connie if their child is getting off the bus at a location other than home.
