Nice work Boston Terriors!

I am so proud of the students in Ms. Boston's classroom.  They all took on an independent or guided learning opportunity with some outstanding results.  They produced some exciting animal research projects that they shared as well as a BEAUTIFUL blanket that was a collaborative effort, with rectangles made from all the different knitting students.  I am honored that they presented me with this blanket, I am so proud of their LEARNING shown in this blanket - imperfections and all.  During our discussions students were able to express their struggles throughout the learning process, the challenges of learning something brand new, and the pride of accomplishment with the completion of this work.  (and thank you to Ms. Boston and Ms. Gath for the guidance you provided to our students!)

Barrows Beautification Day Postponed until Thursday, May 29th


Due to the cold temperatures, soggy grounds, and potential for rain showers, the Barrows Beautification Day has been postponed to the rain date of Thursday, May 29th.  We hope to see you there!
