AES

Recently, Steve Ullman, President of the Antrim Historical Society, organized a wonderful presentation on the history of Antrim schools for the third and fourth graders at AES.  The five presenters, who are all Antrim school alumni, described the similarities and differences between Antrim’s schools, teachers, and students today and those of thirty to seventy years ago. Among the many things students learned were:

​​The old school on High Street had a steeple to hold the bell that signaled the start of the school day.

Students had to learn how to dance, and they used authentic, historical costumes. 

Girls could not wear pants to school. They could wear ski pants in the winter, but they had to take them off once they got to school.

After WW2, schools received surplus cans of food from the Army for school lunches.

 

BES

The Bennington Conservation Commission and Bennington Recreation Committee have offered two After School Science Club sessions to all interested 3rd and 4th graders at Pierce School. Taking advantage of nearby Bruce Edes Memorial Forest, students started by learning about animals and their habitats and will soon be observing the changes that spring brings. Students made nature journals in which they have been drawing and labeling their observations as well as collected forest specimens. 

 

FES

Francestown students participated in our annual New Hampshire Dance Institute residency last week. Under the skillful direction of Lisa Cook, NHDI teacher, all students in kindergarten through fourth grade learned two complex dances. The theme this year was the water cycle and students learned embedded facts about this topic as they leaped, spun and danced the week away. Our final performance on Friday evening was wonderful and the FES gymnasium was jam packed.

 

SMS

SMS production of "Stuart Little" was put on by the Drama club and advisor Taylor Koban this weekend.  Great production and lots of students and community members came to see the play.

 

GES

GES is busy making lots of community connections!  3rd & 4th Graders have been working with Jenn Sutton from the Harris Center.  Third grade is learning about vertebrates and 4th grade is learning about NH mammals.  Both classes have spent time outside, tracking animals and looking for evidence out in the woods behind our school.  Second grade has been learning about states of matter and are in the middle of a unit on maple sugaring in NH.  They hope to travel to Old Pound Road Sugar House soon!  Students are actively engaged and working hard!  Everyone is looking forward to warmer temps so we can extend our learning to the great outdoors even more!

 

District Special Olympics   

The ConVal High School Special Olympics team went to Waterville Valley, March 1st to the 3rd, to participate in the New Hampshire Winter State Games. Ten students represented ConVal High School in cross-country skiing, snowshoe and alpine skiing. We stayed at the Town Square condo’s, got to hang with our friends, make our own breakfast and lunches and joined all the other NH participants for dinners. The following three students volunteered to support our team – Emma Mellon, Kara Ammon, and Louis LaFleur.      

 

The team performed very well and came home exhausted and wearing lots of bling.

 

Meghan Updyke competed in Snow Shoe – she earned a bronze medal.

 

Three young men competed in Alpine (slalom, giant slalom and super g) 

Andrew Hopkins – gold and two bronze

Garrett Shows – bronze medal

Dylan Coyne – three gold medals. 

 

Six athletes competed in Cross Country (50 meter, 100 meter, 200 meter). 

Caitlin Ellis –  1 bronze medal

Branden Davis – 2 gold medals and 1 silver medal

Brandon Chase – one gold medal, 1 silver medal, and 1 bronze medal

James MacFarlane – 1 silver medal,  1 bronze medal

Jason Kulgren -  bronze medal, two  4th place ribbons

Jarek Noschese –  1 gold medal, 2 bronze medals. 

 

ConVal athletes competed hard, showed great sportsmanship and represented our school district with pride.  They are looking forward to next year.
