Last Day of School

 Last day of school? How did that happen so quickly? It was quite a year at the Rowe School. We created plays about a greedy octopus and a boa constrictor, designed brochures about landmarks in Washington, D.C., did a walking tour of the town of Rowe, traveled to Plimoth Plantation, Pine Hill Orchard, The Museum of Science in Boston, Old Deerfield, Red Gate Farm, we “visited” Brazil, skied at Berkshire East, had a Pot Luck and Movie Night, Tailgate Trick or Treat, and Spaghetti Supper, learned about addition, fractions and algebraic equations, read about animals, trucks, and wizards,  learned Spanish, wrote about our families, vacations and favorite things, learned through Project Based Learning, made beautiful art, sang songs and played our instruments, played with our old friends and made new ones. We’re looking forward to more fun and excitement next year.
   May the summer bring you all the rest, relaxation, fun and family time you want. Email is the best way to reach us during the summer, and check the website for updates on calendars and the schedule.
   I found an interesting article about how encouraging your student to read during the summer can help them as they head to school in the fall, I hope you find it interesting:  http://www.readingrockets.org/news/10-tips-stop-summer-slide
