Monday, October 31 is Pumpkin Day for students in Grades K-4! Morning classes and group stations focus on seasonal activities and academics. Hooray for Pumpkin Day! (Parents, save costumes for evening; we'll be busy having fun with pumpkins at school.)
Summer Readers Celebration
October kicked off with Nobleboro Historical Society's Applefest, grades 5 and 6 attended DRA's Wabanaki program. Kindergarten and 1st grade visited an apple orchard. We had picture day, open house, senior buddies and chess club. The soccer season ended and basketball began. Readers and students involved in online work during the summer had their celebration. Meanwhile, several interested 8th grade students experienced backpacking with a fall outing club trip (below).
Fall Outing Club Participants
No wonder it seems like October has zoomed by! We're looking forward to November, too, with parent-teacher conferences (11/17, 11/21 or 11/22), our annual Thanksgiving Feast (11/18), and picture retakes (11/21). Parents of 8th grade students should watch for an email reminder for Family Night at Lincoln Academy (11/2). More about November highlights will be out in the next blog. I'd like to share one more picture from the recent outing club trip. Beautiful!
