Dear Families,

           June 20th is quickly approaching
and students have been involved in many end of the year events. Thanks to
everyone that helped with graduation last week. 
We also want to give a round of applause to the students who played
instruments in the String Performance. 
We have blossoming musical talent at our school!

          One of the highlights of our week was spending
Wednesday afternoon visiting the Polly Hill Arboretum looking for native
species in the arboretum’s collection of trees and plants.  Many local plants from the island hold their
own special beauty against the more exotic species found at the Arboretum.

          Next week we are having a year-end
mini-project period. We are going to continue our focus on shellfish and the
ocean biome, but with an emphasis on what we can do as global citizens to
protect the creatures that live in the ocean. We are going to head up to
Menemsha on Wednesday morning for our last fieldtrip this year. We will be
visiting the fish shops, jetty area and beach to collect materials to use for
art projects in the classroom. Our goal is to raise awareness about the
importance of keeping our oceans clean. Please pack a snack, drink, lunch and
change of clothes in case we get wet wading. We would love a parent or two to
join us in Menemsha (9:00 -12:00). 
Contact Karin or Alyssa if you are interested.

Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Yours,Karin, Alyssa, Mercedes and Jennifer
