12/11/13 Update: Due to a conflict, the time of the December 18th Social has changed to 6:30-7:00pm
Dear Parents, Community Members, and Staff,
December is just around the corner and I have to say I'm looking forward to a gentle covering of snow as we move into the winter months. Also, I want to remind parents that there is no school for students on Wednesday, November 27th. This is a professional compensation day for teachers due to time spent on parent-teacher conferences.
The Board is hosting its third and final informal social this month. The social provides time for members of the community to meet and speak informally with members of the Board. December's social will be held at Freeport High School on Wednesday, December 18th from 6:00-6:30 p.m. Board members are excited about the opportunity to hear from citizens in one-on-one conversations. We invite citizens for any of our three towns to join us for this social event. Your thoughts are important and we look forward to hearing from you.
Schools Delivering on the Mission: Study the Night Sky at Durham Community School
Our 4th graders in Durham are learning about the night sky and extended their learning at a stargazing party with help from FHS physics teacher David Smail. It sounds like quite an experience for everyone involved. Read all about it in this month's article written by Deb Purinton, grandparent!
