I'm writing with the news you've been waiting for...but before I get to that I'd like to share a couple of the outreach projects that your children have been working on.
Michele Arthur, who is one of our lunch and recess aides contacted me last week. Michele is very involved in the b Positive project. The organization was sending some b Positive t-shirts to the brave men and women being treated at the Walter Reed Medical Center. She thought that it would be great to send some cards made by our students along with the shirts. We were happy to participate in such a great project and are grateful that Michele included us. Michele is a very positive person and we are so happy that she has joined our team at Clough.
Speaking of outreach, students from Nipmuc recently visited with our third graders and shared their DECA project. They are collecting loose change for children in Kenya. So far we have filled one small mason jar. Could you please consider sending your child in with a handful of change for this worthy cause? I'd love to support the children in Kenya as well as our Nipmuc students in completing this project with success.
Finally, the news you've been waiting for: Our big production, Geology Rocks, is scheduled for December 21st at 10:00 AM. The students will be performing in the cafetorium. This musical opera will run for approximately 30 minutes. It will be followed by a holiday themed cast party. Please try to attend if possible. However, if you're unable to attend, know that there will be two more such productions this year. I'm looking forward to this science-themed play as it is really a great way to culminate our study of rocks and minerals. If you're able to attend, you'll see that our budding geologists can really ROCK!
