ECHO Science Center

We had a FABULOUS field trip to the ECHO Science Center today!  We've been talking about the many ways that Lake Champlain helps our town of Colchester so it was nice to spend some time looking at the animals and habitat around the lake. We became engineers in the "Innovation" room, we hunted for buried treasure in the old shipwreck, we touched starfish and looked at many underwater animals, and we played with sand to mimic the lakes topography. We had a blast!!  Our morning flew by! Here are some photos of our fun!

Grandfriend Day at UMS

We had a fabulous afternoon with our special friends! We read the book "Spookly the Square Pumpkin" and make a bookmark. We shared some delicious pumpkin muffins and finished our afternoon with a outside recess! Thank you to all of the special friends and family members that came to make the day wonderful! Here are some photos from our afternoon.

Potato Harvest

The second graders planted potatoes when they were in first grade and last week, we were able to harvest them and donate them to the Colchester Food Shelf! It was so much fun!! Here are some photos from our adventure!
