Tour of the United States Landmarks- Brought to You by Grade Two!

Second grade has been busy in traveling the country through the use of our LEEF grant Virtual Reality goggles to learn about our US landmarks!  Today they take YOU with them on a tour of each one.  They worked hard on speaking clearly and using expression.  The second graders did such a great job, you may see them on the next travel show!  Enjoy!

Name that State Gameshow! Your Hosts: The Fourth Graders!

The fourth graders produced their own movies to see how well YOU know your New England states!

First, they collaboratively researched their states.  Secondly, each group of students wrote their scripts together. Thirdly, they decided on a green screen background, and lastly, they used the DoInk app to film one another, encouraging expression in their voices.


From beginning to end, so proud of their efforts!  Fourth graders can do it all!!


Now let's see how YOU do in their gameshow!

Center Tech Experts!

Two second grade students and a fourth grade student took it upon themselves to ask if they could bring in some technology projects they've been working on at home.  Knowing this is such a great opportunity for leadership and for the classes to learn from their peers,  I definitely took them up on their request!

Jack taught the second graders all about Stop Motion by showing examples he made and instructing students in making their own.  Bella showcased her work on iMovie trailers, by directing interested students in creating a class trailer.  Langdon brought in Nintendo Switch, and explained how he built the parts that work in the games played on the Smartboard.   

All three students were excelled in their presentation and instructing classmates. The students learned a lot and had such a great time doing so!  It was a joy to watch our tech experts in action!

Paws4Cardinals

I am thrilled to report after our successful pilot program last year, we are expanding our dog assisted intervention program, Paws4Cardinals, at Center School. There’s nothing Murphy enjoys more than working with children to spread happiness and provide assistance.
This year, Murphy will be visiting twice a week as well as coming in for "Meet and Greets" with all of the Center School students as a way for them to get to know our dog assistant better.
As expected, the visits are a highlight in the day for all involved! To learn more about Murphy, please click on his website: Paws4Cardinals
