Feelings” was the theme of our Open Circle Luncheon on Wednesday, March 11th. Students pictured here were honored for their ability to recognize the feelings of others. We highlighted the book How Are You Peeling? by J. Elffers and Saxton Freymann because it talks about different types of feelings using the faces of vegetables and fruits with moods. Students are encouraged to recognize their own feelings and express those feelings in safe and healthy ways using words.

Remember to:

Be Kind

Be Your Best

Be Respectful

Be Safe

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.
