The staff at Highland-Goffe's Falls would like to thank the Norwin S. & Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation for their generous grants recently awarded to our school. Mr. Lamy received $471.00 to establish a numismatics club with students, and Kindergarten through second grade teachers received $500.00 for supplemental math materials. We have been very fortunate to have been the recipients of these grants from this wonderful foundation!
PTA president, Stacey Weigler; Reading Specialist, Heidi Rivard; and Guidance Counselor, Tricia Towne collaborated to write this grant to purchase additional books for students to read with their teachers and families. We were able to buy over 160 new titles (with multiple copies) to add to our Leveled Lending Library. The students are already enjoying them!
More Information will be sent home with the kiddos for an upgrade on the product they buy that day. Last year HGF received a total of $1118.08 for bringing in the most food of all elementary schools in Manchester so we received 75% of our sales. I know we can do this again. The food donations go to the NH Food Bank. Let's do it again, sooooooo
"Bring some food !" Collection of food will begin on .
Mr. Lamy and I will be collaborating again on a slide show presentation to coincide with a song the students will be singing for our Memorial Day Celebration. We would like to include pictures of family members of our Highland students that have served or are presently serving in the military. Please do not submit pictures of second cousins, friends, acquaintances, etc. We will not accept these as the song allows us only enough time to include immediate family members. You may send a picture of this family member, in military attire, to email@example.com in a jpg. format. The picture should be no bigger than 500K in size. Pictures that are too large quickly take up a lot of space on our server and limit the number of e-mails we can receive. Please include the person’s name, relationship to student and military branch with the picture. Also, please limit the number of pictures you send to two per child. Hard copy pictures may be brought in an envelope with the proper information on it and will be scanned at school- and returned to student.
Pictures must be submitted by Monday, May 11th as the Memorial Day program is Friday, May 22nd at 9:00 am and Mr. Lamy and I need sufficient time to put this together.
Boys and girls that are current members of the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts are encouraged to wear their uniforms for the Memorial Day Celebration. All other students are encouraged to wear red, white and blue for this special day.
Parents and children of appropriate age are invited to attend this respectful ceremony.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
Their donation will be used to purchase four Snap Circuits electronics kits which, through fun hands-on activities, will introduce our students to the fundamentals of electronics and circuits, and nurture their curiosity in this important area of science and technology.
