News from the Admissions Office
We are delighted to invite all prekindergarten siblings of current students to join us for a kindergarten screening on Tuesday, February 7th from 1:45 until 2:45 in the kindergarten classroom. An application, application follow-up, and a recommendation from your child’s current preschool should be completed in order to attend the screening. Please give me a call if you did not receive an admissions packet or if you would like to set up a time to visit. We look forward to welcoming our eight siblings for the screening. — Betsy
Books tucked under arms and into desks, backpacks, and cubbies. They are everywhere! Our students love to read. They love to read because you have passed along your love of reading to them and because we continue to nurture that love through daily exposure to high quality children’s picture books and literature.
In this, our 20th anniversary year, our newly expanded library collection is pushing toward 10,000 volumes! This marvelous collection offers something for everyone. Please remember that our library is accessible online. You and your children can browse from the comfort of your home! Libby Robbie has just refreshed our collection with new selections in all genres. Browse this list (attached) for the newest selections and then come “check out” our library! Cozy up with a good book. I will do the same. — Best, Jean

Parent Snack: Thank you to the third grade parents for the very delicious snacks last Friday!
Passport to Winter Fun: On Friday, January 27, students in kindergarten through fifth grade attended a presentation from a member of the Upper Valley Trails Alliance (www.uvtrails.org). All students in the Lower School received a passport and are encouraged to participate. To begin participation, each student must complete the front flap of their passport (many classes completed this in their homerooms). The goal is to be active for one hour a day for thirty days. Students can earn incentive prizes along the way and can be entered into the grand prize raffles when they reach thirty days. See the passport for more information or contact Mrs. Grenier or the Upper Valley Trails Alliance.
The Upper Valley Haven: Winter is a time when food shelters are the most depleted of items. The third grade class is collecting food for The Upper Valley Haven on February 7th-14th. Please bring in items by Tuesday, February 14th. The Haven right now especially needs peanut butter, white/brown rice, canned fruit, pasta, baked beans, and healthy snack items. They always need canned soup, fruit, vegetables, pasta, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, dried beans, cereal, napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, soap, toothpaste, and laundry detergent. We would greatly appreciate your help!
Middle School Coffee and Health Seminar: The Middle School Coffee is scheduled Thursday, February 16th from 8:00-9:30 am in the art room. The speaker will be Ann Burge from the Pregnancy Center.
