5210 WrapUp

posted Jun 6, 2017, 12:41 PM by Corinne Altham   [ updated Jun 6, 2017, 12:42 PM ]

Dear Small School Families,                                     

It has been a successful and fun year, challenging ourselves through the 5210 Let’s Go program.  From healthy snack challenges, a screen free week, and being physically active at home and at school, we have learned many new ideas for different ways to continue living a healthy lifestyle.

Summer is a perfect time  to get outside and enjoy all that Maine has to offer!  In this week’s totes, I have added a Summer Activity list.  I hope you try out some new activities together as a family and have a safe, fun, and restful summer!

Thank you!

Amy Brier

Please contact Kirsten McWilliams at 1-207-409-8767 or email her at to choose a week. It’s easy, fun, and so helpful. A few times that week, bring your kiddos to play on the playground while you briefly water and weed our growing gardens, thus helping our harvest! It’s fun to get dirty!

There are LOTS of great clothes in our lost and found. It's located in the school lobby. A reminder: clothes with a name on them find their way home much faster. Feel free to come in before or after school to check the pile.
