The 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner was commemorated this morning with a reading of its history by grade 4 students, the presentation of a new flag, the raising of the flag by student Boy Scouts, and the singing of our national anthem. Many thanks to the Howell family who donated the new flag just in time for this celebration.

"An after-school program is a good opportunity to focus on things not learned in the traditional curriculum such as robotics, Rube Goldberg machines, snap circuits, computer science unplugged (you don't even need a computer to do CS unplugged), etc. "

You may recall that back in the fall, Mrs. Barton's third graders wrote letters to veterans and also to members of the armed forces who are currently on active duty. This month Petty Officer Second Class, Claire Dabrowski, returned to shore after her most recent tour of duty on the USS Halsey, where she serves as a gunner's mate. She was able to visit the third graders who had written to her earlier and teach them about life on a Navy warship.
