Maine Discovery Museum

On Friday, April 14th, the first grade took a trip to the Maine Discovery Museum in Bangor. It was a long ride, but everyone had a grand time. The time flew by. We ate our lunch in the snack room before we made the long trip home. You can see below that one of my kiddos fell asleep on the way back. Thanks to our wonderful P.T.F. for funding this field trip.

Thank You,

Mrs. Sturgis

Guest Reader 4/7/17

I’d like to thank Michelle Lewis, Reese’s mom, for volunteering to be our guest reader on Friday afternoon. She read Little Loon and Papa to end our week of books about loons. We heard a few realistic fiction books, a couple of fiction books, and one nonfiction book with beautiful photography of Maine loons.

Thank You,

Lisa Sturgis

Guest Reader 3/31/17

I’d like to thank Dawn Bailey, Avery’s mom, for volunteering to be our guest reader on Friday afternoon. She read Nibbles: A Green Tale to end our week of books about seeds, trees, and gardening. We also planted our marigold seeds on Friday as well. Everyone was very excited about this. We’re looking forward to the first sprouts.

Thank You,

Lisa Sturgis

Guest Reader 3/27/17

On Monday, March 27th, we had a special guest reader, Rebecca Jacobs, from the Maine Agriculture in the classroom Read ME agriculture program. She spent thirty minutes talking about agriculture in Maine and reading the book What’s in the Garden? She also left us a copy of the book to keep in the classroom. It was the perfect beginning to our week of reading books about seeds, trees, and gardening.

Thank You,

Mrs. Sturgis
