Main Street School held it’s very first Open Circle Luncheon of the school year on Wednesday, September 11th. These luncheons are designed to reinforce skills that students are learning through the Open Circle curriculum in the theme areas of friendship, cooperation, problem solving, feelings, leadership, and celebrating differences. The theme for our first luncheon was friendship, and the students photographed below were recognized for their developing skills in this area. These student photographs will also be displayed during this month on a bulletin board outside the Main Office or Gym. The literary characters highlighted are from various dinosaur books, where the characters demonstrate friendship skills. We use characters from books to support the themes. Congratulations to the students who were honored during today’s luncheon.

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.
