|Liberty Ride Trolley Tour of Lexington and Concord|
The Upper Elementary Seniors and their history teachers Seth and Meg went on their first field trip of the school year on Wednesday, October 1: the Liberty Ride Trolley Tour of Lexington and Concord (tourlexington.us/libertyride.html). The purpose of this trip was to kick off the yearlong study of early U.S. History and the American Revolution.
Seth asked the students, “What was the most memorable moment from our Liberty Ride Tour?” and here are their answers:
|Camp Becket in the Berkshires: Upper EL Outdoor Education|
Next week the Upper Elementary students will travel as a whole community to Camp Becket Chimney Corners, nestled in beautiful Western Massachusetts. Students will focus on team building skills, gaining trust, responsibility, respect and independence and learning about our environment through activities, demonstrations and project adventure experiences.
"What are you looking forward to at Camp Becket?" asked Meg Duffy, UE teacher.
"Everything! Especially Gaga ball and everything else: campfires, nature hikes...there's a lot of other things!" 6th grade boy
"I'm looking forward to canoeing the most." 5th grade girl
"Low ropes! I also can't wait for this job game. It's really fun." 5th grade boy
"Mostly Gaga ball, and the campfire is really fun because of the jokes that they tell and the skits. Sometimes we do songs. Last year they did "What Does the Fox Say." There's also canoeing. It's really cold but you want to do it over and over again." 6th grade girl
|LMS Family Day at Cradles to Crayons|
Seventeen families (46 parents and children) participated in Family Day at Cradles to Crayons on Saturday, September 27 from 10-noon. Parents and children worked at various stations: Triage, Outfits, Book sorting and ordering/shopping. Dave Cotugno, the Family Philanthropist Associate and the liaison between Cradles to Crayons and LMS, let us know that over 350 children in need were helped as a result of the morning’s work. See photos on the C2C Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/c2cboston
Saturday, November 1 Cradles to Crayons will have a similar opportunity for families to volunteer. The sorting and organizing of items will be at St. Brigid’s church in Lexington on the morning of 11/1.
|The Greenhouse is Coming! The Greenhouse is Coming!|
After nearly a year of research, discussion, planning, fundraising, and brainstorming, we are happy to announce that the greenhouse is coming. In fact, it will be here before November begins. We have cleared an unused portion of the Children’s House playground in preparation for the build of a 26’ “Growing Dome.” In order to give you a sense of our timeline and the upcoming changes to the campus, we thought we’d break it down into three distinct phases.
How can you help?
In order to complete this project in a timely fashion, we need a small crew of builders. Do you have construction experience? If you are interested in applying to volunteer on this project, please fill out this questionnaire
. Also, stay tuned for further updates on our progress!
