“Un lavoro ben fatto!”

 Last night’s Spaghettis Supper was truly “Un lavoro ben fatto!“, which is Italian for a job well done! Mr. Beebe and the 5th and 6th graders worked hard serving the dinners, the families and school staff did amazing work prepping, cooking and cleaning up after the dinner, and the PTP was instrumental in planning the…

Spring is coming…

 It feels like Spring is waiting to “spring”, but one never knows up here on the hill. We’re making plans to get the students working outside when the weather permits, and planning to build on the work the students did on our school gardens last year. Please make sure your students have appropriate clothing to…

Winter’s not over yet…

   What a crazy weather week. From 67 degrees on Wednesday afternoon to 15 degrees on Thursday night. I guess winter hasn’t gone away entirely. Please make sure your students have appropriate clothing to be able to play and study outside no matter what then weather.    Tuesday is the final day for our Americorps…

What a week!

It has certainly been a crazy week, between the snow day, the Outdoor Science Day and the field trip to Mass MoCA. That said, Wednesday’s day at the Park was a great one, snowshoeing through the woods and following animal tracks with our friend Ted from the Hitchcock Center, building snow shelters, or learning fire…

That was a crazy week…

   Thanks to all the students (and staff) who wore Patriot’s gear last Friday, it obviously worked. And we collected food for Good Neighbors. The Rowe School community comes through again!    It has been a crazy weather week, I’m sorry that I have to be the bearer of bad news (or good news, depending…

Another great ski day!

Another great day of skiing yesterday. The conditions were great, and the weather was lovely. So many students tried new trails, and are proud of their development as skiers. Thanks again to the chaperones and staff who make the day possible, and to the PTP for the financial support.    I hope you’ll be able…

No skiing this week

It’s too bad that the weather didn’t cooperate so that we could ski this week, but that means we have three more ski days coming up, January 19th and 26th, and now February 2nd. Looking forward to next week. We sent a call and email out to all families of students in grades K-6 with…

A great day of skiing

   What a great day of skiing! We had eleven students (and one adult) who had never skied before, and they all did a great job. The older or more experienced students were helping out students who were still learning, it was great to see.    We also had 22 adult chaperones (not counting staff)…
