Penny Drive for Spectrum Sleepout

Many girls and boys are doing a Spectrum Sleep Out.  We are trying to raise money for homeless adults and children.  We are sleeping outside to show what homeless people do EVERY NIGHT!!!  There are approximately 1,000 young people that are homeless in VT! That's not good! So help the homeless by donating to our Penny Drive for Spectrum!  We've already started collecting coins and bills!  The Girls and Boys are competing against each other in a healthy competition to see which Penny Drive collects the most donations!

Town Meeting Day

Learning to vocabulary connected with Town Meeting Day by matching words with definitions! We were als working in small groups and practicing habits like listening, being flexible and persevering!

Reading and answering questions about Town Meeting and its history!
Lastly, reading about a current issue in our town, the SCS Renovation.  Discussing the pros and cons of the $11.2 million dollar bond and finally having a mock Town Meeting to discuss the issue! We took a floor vote and in our classroom it passed with a majority voice!  Great discussion and a meaningful way to learn about Town Meeting!
