Sandwich Central School



Dear Parents and Friends,

Well, this is it! The final newsletter of the 2013-14 school year. We have two more weeks of learning, fun and games, so the time will be well spent.
The District is investigating full-day kindergarten beginning with the 2015-16 school year. There is a survey being taken this week and we would like to have your input. Currently the District has two alternatives for kindergarten: Inter-Lakes Elementary School has a half-day program that lasts about 2 hours and 45 minutes per day while Sandwich Central School has an extended-day model that lasts for 4 hours. A committee has been researching the benefits of providing full-day kindergarten for all students. Attached to this newsletter is a paper copy of the survey which you can send back to school by Friday, or you can also take the survey online by following the links on the District or school website at


Mrs. Petitti’s Primary Multiage Class


Reading, Writing, Science: We had a lot of excitement in our class this week. Our chicken eggs started to hatch.  At this time four of the seven eggs have hatched.  The children have enjoyed listening to nonfiction books and hearing about the changes that occur to the embryo while it was in the egg.  They heard how the chick would work its way out of the egg and then got to observe a chick hatching during our class time...there were many squeals of excitement. They put together a book entitled, How A Chick Hatches and enjoyed reading it to each other.  The children enjoyed making a model of the life cycle of a chicken. Afternoon friends organized the facts they collected on their farm animal.  They are starting to learn about paragraphs. 


Mr. Chapman’s Upper Multiage


Language Arts, Science and Social Studies: The Upper Multiage has been deeply invested in several research projects.  Each student has selected an animal that calls New Hampshire home, and they have been busily gathering information about that animal’s habitat, diet, predators, special features and adaptations, life cycle and migrations or hibernation behaviors.  The students voted to do these projects during our Mock Legislature, as they had enjoyed doing a similar project when they were in Middle Multiage.  It has been fun to watch as they draw from their previous learning of how to write an animal-related research paper.


Ms. Littlefield


Math:  It has been a busy week in math for both groups! Everyone took the end of the year assessment on Tuesday and Wednesday, and both groups started new units this week.  The Rookies have started a unit that introduces them to multiplication. In this unit we will be stressing what it means to multiply and we will be using cuisenaire rods to help visualize this concept. This week the Veterans learned how to solve 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication problems using the traditional multiplication method, for example 34x68.  In their new unit the Veterans will be reviewing measurement and data; they will also be learning about using coordinate grids.
