This month's SEL theme is Friendship.
Activities will be centered on inviting friends to play, making friends and fixing problems when they arise. Topics include:
- Having successful conversations with peers helps you make and build friendships.
- Giving a sincere, thoughtful compliment is a good way to start a conversation or keep one going.
- Being assertive can help you join, and invite others to join, a group.
BHS Community Garden is Growing
Posted March 29, 2019
Our hands on, standards based, science lessons continued this week with educators from the Hitchcock Science Center. The spring lessons will revolve around beautifying our courtyard space to make it an outdoor classroom as well as a mindful space.
First grade learned a song about plant parts, they sorted plant parts, they decided what they would be planting in the courtyard garden and started their leaf seeds (lettuce and spinach) inside. Fourth grade explored composter designs with Mr. Ted. The students then planned and diagrammed their own composters which will be made to use in the garden. Our gratitude for LEEF for supporting this important work.

Thank you to those who came to support our sandwich making "mission" this morning. Students, families, and staff worked together from 8 - 8:25 to make hundreds of sandwiches for our friends in need. There are going to be some happy people with a bit more in their bellies thanks to everyone's generosity. Thanks especially to the PTO and our Community Service leaders for organizing this monthly event. It is a first-hand experience of always remembering that kindness does indeed count.
