Artist Kirstin Campbell Marks helps put the finishing touches on our Polar Express hallway art!

Our class worked hard on our beautiful Polar Express door and hallway mural! They are very proud of their hard work and had a great time working on this masterpiece.  Unfortunately, we didn't win the pizza party. Our display is number 1 in our book!

It's Monday!

We have collected 84 cans of food for GSB Cares a Ton! We have been in competition with Mrs. Peaslee's class. We are one can behind. We will be collecting until Friday the 18th! Please help us reach our goal. 

This year, our student council is having a door decorating contest. Our class chose the theme of "The Polar Express." The winner of the contest gets a pizza party on Friday! We are hoping to win! Our Technology coordinator, KJ even rigged up an iPad with train sound effects. Every time some one walks by, a train whistle blows! Here is what we have so far...

Please remember to return your Paddlin to Poland permission slips. We will be starting our winter activity challenge in the new year!

Happy Monday!

Recycling Presentation

Our friends Barry and Tim from the Lincoln County Recycling Center and Barry from the Nobleboro/Jefferson Transfer Station. We learned about what we can recycle at home and how to sort materials at the recycling center. Students were excited to learn about their new initiative to collect organic materials to make compost.
