Open Circle Luncheon 4-6-16
An Open Circle Luncheon was held on Wednesday, April 6th to honor students who demonstrate friendship skills. Our Open Circle curriculum teaches students to become ethical people, contributing citizens, and successful learners. The focus of this luncheon was good friendship qualities and helping others. As part of this learning, we ask students to help support the local food bank. We are collecting items to demonstrate ways we can help others. Thank you to all those who are willing to contribute an item for our collection!
Stop, Drop & Read 2016
Stop, Drop, and Read Program
Second grade students at Main Street School participated in a program during the month of March called “Stop, Drop, and Read.” This is a program sponsored by the Exeter Fire Department to promote reading. Students were encouraged to read and record their minutes daily throughout the month. Two lucky participants were awarded with a ride to school on a fire truck, and all students who read daily were awarded with a water bottle and a certificate for their participation. The program this year was a huge success, with second grade students reading a total of 1,679 hours! Thank you to the Exeter Fire Department for sponsoring such as great program, and congratulations to all second grade readers!
