Please remember that there are two "no school" days for the children next week!  Tuesday, November 8th is Election Day.  There will be no school for kids while the day will be used for Teacher Workshops.  
Friday, November 11th is a no school day in observance of Veteran's Day.

Many thanks to volunteers Shea and Joe McGonigal, and Kim Doyon for coming into our class yesterday for our Halloween craft day!  They brought adorable Halloween crafts that were perfect for first grade fun.  Here are a few pictures of our morning:

Making ghosts!

Frankensteins.....

...and vampires!

One of our school social workers, Deb Hannon, is teaching one session per week in our class.  We are working on what it means to be 'mindful' at school.  Last week's session included an activity focused on teamwork.  Our project was to fill a box with blocks having passed them all around the room without moving our feet!  We soon realized how much we can accomplish if we work together.  
Here are some cute photos of the activity:
With help from our friends...

...we can move a pile of blocks into an empty box.
