Main Street School students pictured here were recently recognized for their cooperation skills. We highlighted the graphic novels called "Lunch Lady" written by Jarrett Krosoczka. We also took time to recognize our own lunch lady heroes- the ladies who work in the cafeteria to cook the students nutritious meals! Nice work!

NH State Senator Visits MSS

As a part of the second-grade science curriculum, the students in 2MC/P became aware of how the environment affects the lives of various animals. As a result, they became interested in conservation. Using Project Based Learning concepts, the class decided to complete a project based upon their interest. Past classes have selected projects that influenced the school administrators, teachers, and students to become more aware of the impact certain school practices have on the environment.

This year's group of enthusiastic students were interested in trying to make community changes. They embraced the idea of protecting the ocean and its animals by encouraging local restaurants to limit the number of Styrofoam containers used by customers and eliminate the number of plastic bags used in Exeter. They also encouraged Main Street School to begin composting.

They researched the issues surrounding these topics and secured with parental help a knowledgeable speaker, who ignited their passion for the project. They wrote opinion essay and letters which were sent to the Exeter Select Board, State Representatives and Senators, and local businesses. State Senator Morgan and State Representative Grossman visited the classroom to hear the students' concerns.
