"Home of the Blue Wave" where our school motto is DYB (Do Your Best!)
I am so excited to begin my work here at I-LES! I feel truly honored to be a part of this positive, fun, and nurturing school community. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop by this summer, or call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this year terrific!
Enjoy the summer,
Don’t Forget! Summer B.L.A.S.T. begins July 18th and ends August 4th.
The program runs Mondays-Thursdays from 8:30a.m-11:30a.m.
This is the last newsletter of the year, and my last opportunity to thank the amazing Inter-Lakes Elementary School community for its support and dedication to our school. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your principal for the past 18 years. As I pack up my office and head into the next chapter of my life (not sure exactly what that's going to be!), I will bring with me the many great memories of life here at I-LES.
Parents of Inter-Lakes school age children: We are very excited to announce the fourth year of GOT LUNCH! Inter-Lakes, a summer healthy lunch program for Inter-Lakes school children. Although our target is the population that qualifies for free or reduced price lunches during the school year, it is NOT a requirement for participation. If you need help this summer, this program is designed for you.
The fourth graders have been fortunate to experience two fantastic field trips during the last few weeks of school. On May 26th, they traveled to Concord where they toured the New Hampshire History Museum and the State House. At the history museum, they viewed many interesting artifacts and also had a scavenger hunt to match objects from the past with their purpose.
Grade 2 is gearing up for an exciting last few weeks of school! Second graders have been working hard practicing for their upcoming play, The Bremen Town Musicians. Your child’s teacher has sent home information on when and where your child’s play will take place. Next week, second graders will be visiting Remick Museum in Tamworth! Students will need a lunch, snack, sneakers and appropriate clothing for the weather. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
We hope you all have a fantastic summer!!
We can’t believe that this is our final contribution to the newsletter for 2016! What a great year it has been in third grade! There are many activities going on as we end this awesome year. Students are reviewing skills as they prepare to take an end-of-the-year assessment for math.
Some of the skills will include multi-digit adding and subtracting with trading, basic multiplication facts, word problems and fractions.
We are completing our Foss Science studies. Students are building carts and looking at designs.
SThe children in 1st grade have been working on many forms of writing over the school year. We have focused mainly on writing poetry for the past couple of weeks. The children have been working really hard at using lots of descriptive language so the reader can make pictures in their mind. Here are some of the finished products. You can read more at our Celebration of Learning on June 2nd. Hope to see you there!
