Joel celebrated Poem in Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 14th. Every April, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and on Twitter using the hashtag #pocketpoem.

Saturday, March 5th at the Andrews Memorial Town Hall, teams got together to participate in the spelling bee. Here are some pictures from the event. All proceeds go to the Clinton Education Foundation Scholarship Fund. This fund provides students and teachers with funds to attend workshops, summer camps, or leadership programs. Teachers often use the funds to purchase supplies that are not part of the budget.
From the NELMS website: "The purpose of the Spotlight School Award is to recognize schools that have a record of effective teaching and learning for young adolescents and consistently implement middle level best practices. A NELMS Spotlight School is recognized for developing strong effective programs that reflect concepts contained in Turning Points 2000, and This We Believe, and current middle level state recommendations."
