Dear
Families,


          Spring Vacation is here! With spring
in the air and longer days we are all anxious to have more time outside next
week.


          The week after vacation we are having
our Biography Exhibition.  Each student
studied a famous person and created a report and “artifact box” about that
person.  Many students want to dress as
their characters, so please look around your house over vacation to see if you
can find some costume materials for the presentation.  The exhibition is Thursday, April 27th
from 12:30 to 1:30. (This is a time change from our last Weekly Window.)


          Our peas are up!  Third graders are participating in an
inter-island school competition to grow the most peas by early June.  We are following the tradition of Thomas
Jefferson who held a similar competition with his neighbors.  We wrote letters to the students at the Oak
Bluffs School to ask them about their pea’s progress.  Our peas are just peeking out of the ground.
We will be monitoring them closely through the next month.



         

          Have a wonderful vacation!
