Points of Pride – May 19, 2015
Hancock Elementary School
- The third grade finished up their study of vertebrates with individual oral presentations about an animal that they researched. A parent volunteer worked with each student to create a PowerPoint as a visual support for their oral presentation. The presentations for parents and students at HES were quite informative.
- HES students, parents and teachers had a wonderful time preparing for and participating in Children and the Arts. Students painted mini pictures which were on display at Joseph's Coat. They also created "hot air balloons" to carry during the Giant Puppet Parade. Finally, many children and parents helped out at the food court where the PTO sold ice cream as a fundraiser. Fun was had by all.
- Finally, last week the fourth grade built raised beds for Cornucopia. K - 3rd graders filled the beds with young vegetable plants that they grew from seed.

Greenfield Elementary is busy! Kindergarteners are reading and writing so well! They've grown so much since the first day of school! First graders are learning about the phases of the moon, planting vegetables in our gardens and measuring in math. Second graders have been studying what is was like to go to school 100 years ago and visited the Monadnock Center Historical one room schoolhouse. Third grade visited Squam Lake Science Center to learn more about NH animals and Fourth grade is busy practicing their lines and songs to get ready for the annual 4th grade play. Many students took part in the Children and the Arts parade and enjoyed the day full of dance, song and art.
Francestown Elementary School
On Friday, May 22, all FES students, staff and community members will walk to Cemetery #3 to honor our fallen veterans. We will be accompanied by veterans, widows, widowers and family members from the Francestown community. Together we will lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The program will include the students singing songs, the reading of a poem, bagpipes, and taps. The Memorial Day service is a long-standing tradition in Francestown.
