This week 1st grade students show off their singing and dancing talents in their performance of "Nursery Rhymes Rock". Thank-you to the 1st grade team and Mrs. Peabody and Ms. Potts for allowing these students to share their talents with the whole school.

On the day before February vacation, students were engaged in many activities to keep their hands & minds busy!  The 3rd grade classes were busy "delivering mail" as students practiced their letter writing and communication skills across all grade levels.  The 4th grade classes showed off their individual inventions at the "Invention Convention" demonstrating their knowledge of simple machines.  All classes celebrated Valentine's Day with stories, bingo games,  crafts, math activities, and of course their were plenty of moustaches to go around!  It was a day filled with high energy and plenty of Valentine's cards, treats, and hugs were shared by all.
Thank-you to the PTO and the parents that helped coordinate last weeks Movie & Pizza Night for Francis Wyman.  It was a great success with almost 200 students enjoying the presentation of "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" following a pizza dinner at school.  A great time was had by all who attended.

Please enjoy a safe & relaxing February break!  See you back at school on Monday, February 23, 2015!
