The Interact Club is putting on its annual sock collection drive “Socktober” for the entire month of October. I-LES has partnered with the  Interact Club to help with their collection. We would be grateful if you were able to send in any new unused socks with your child to help with their collection. A bin will be in the office to collect the socks. At the end of the month all socks will be donated to local homeless shelters. The Interact Club and I-LES thank you for your support with this cause!

First Grader with a butterflyOur 1st grade learners have been doing a great job adjusting to our schedule and routines.  We have been working to build our community by establishing class rules and expectations.  We have spent time sharing, playing games and learning how to take care of materials and each other. 

Jake from Prescott Farms has been coming into our classrooms to talk to the students about the importance of composting and recycling. The children have been working on number concepts to 50 and beginning reading skills. We will be starting our ‘Choice Boards’ for Home Learning soon so be looking for it in your child’s folder.

Reminder – School pictures will be on Wednesday, October 9th.

Some of us hiked Rattlesnake Mountain last Friday, and some of us will  hike on Friday, October 4th. This hike shows us that we can ALL make it to the top, and it does NOT matter whether we are first or last, we all get there in the end.  Our learning works the same way! As we learn and grow this year, we will celebrate our growth and use this hike to remind us the goal is to move forward and make progress not to be first.  In addition, through the hike we learn about goal setting, persevering, and reflecting on our progress towards our goals. We hope that this field trip will serve as a springboard for students as they set goals this year!  

We explored trees and identified leaves with Jake, the Naturalist.  We cannot wait to use what we learned to identify some leaves and trees on our hike.

 

Connor and his prize winning cabbageIn addition to our beautiful and bountiful greenhouse, our I-LES students have been growing things at home this past summer.  Check out Royce Marcello-Browher’s tomatoes and sunflowers that he grew!  They were started in school last spring.  Kyle Clairmont also had a lot of tomato-growing success, and his new second grade teacher was the lucky recipient of a bag of fresh tomatoes on the first day!  Fourth grader Learners harvested cabbages that they grew at home over the summer.  Connor Brunt and Caleb Spears each grew a cabbage weighing 3.8 pounds, winning our cabbage growing competition!  Evelyn Champagne and Summer Hamill also were successful cabbage growers.

It’s very exciting to see how these students have been inspired to become gardeners at home!  Congratulations to all those “green thumbs” out there!
