    Note from Francie 4/11/14

    Basketballs on the court.  Forts under construction and renovation.  A new sandbox (thanks to Jesse!).  The garden emerging from under the snow.  All of these are sure signs of spring.  The energy and enthusiasm that comes with spring has also been channeled into lots of productive learning at school.

    Recycle for Art

    The Art Program is looking for a few items! We are in need of about a dozen clear plastic liter beverage bottles for an art project. Plastic table coverings for messy projects are always appreciated (shower curtains, vinyl tablecloths, sheet plastic, etc.). If you have fabric scraps you would be willing to donate they would be joyfully made into works of art! Please contact Sue Aldridge if you have items to donate, or send them in on Art Day-Tuesday.

    April Fools

    An April Fools Day Treat from the kitchen!

    005 003

    Note from Rochelle

    The reading challenge was a great success! It seems as if the idea of Francie with purple hair was a very good motivator. Thanks to Francie for her willingness to be a little silly in the name of reading. Most of the classrooms far exceeded their goals, and have set the bar high for next year’s challenge, but that is a long way off. In the more immediate future, it is the season to vote for the Vermont book awards. Votes for the Red Clover Award have been cast by K-4 students, and sent on to the state level. The World’s Greatest Lion by Ralph Helfer is a standout for Marlboro students. If you have a student in Kindergarten through 4th grade, ask them what they thought of that one.

    It’s Complicated: the social lives of networked teens

    Well, parents can have a reading challenge too, and in a free e-book format!

    What is new about how teenagers communicate through services such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? Does social media affect the quality of teens’ lives? In the eye-opening book It’s Complicated, youth culture and technology expert danah boyd uncovers some of the major myths regarding teens’ use of social media. (

    Read or listen to the NPR piece on boyd’s research and the book in “Online, Researcher Says, Teens Do What They’ve Always Done.
    Read an extract from It’s Complicated: The Social Lives Of Networked Teens by danah boyd in the Guardian.

    Screen shot 2014-03-16 at 9.08.20 PM

    While I have only read an excerpt so far, I have heard danah boyd (no caps – that’s what she goes by) speak and have read her previous book “Hanging Out, Messing Around and Geeking Out: Kids Living and Learning with New Media” and find that her research is impeccable. While you may not agree with all of her conclusions, it is almost guaranteed you will gain some insight into the current lives of teens through the interviews and examples she includes.

    Get the free download of the book here. Buy a copy here.

    Send your BoxTops for Education to School!

    Collecting box tops from the “Box Tops for Education Program” is an easy way to make a little money for the school. Look for the Box Top logo on hundreds of boxed products at the Co-op, Hannafords & Price Chopper (you’ll find them on cereal, granola bars, sandwich bags, etc.). Each one is worth 10¢ for our school. Just tear them off the box or wrapper and send them in to school for Stephanie Shiman, Box Top coordinator. Collecting a bunch before you send them in is great, just pay attention to the expiration dates.
