As the school year ends, I am filled with gratitude for so many. It seems like a lifetime ago that we discovered the structural damage in our gymnasium. Since that time, our teachers, our students, our families, and our community have rallied together to make this a successful year at EHBi! I can’t think if a better final post than to share pictures, and a silly movie, of some of our end of year celebrations! I plan to update everyone on construction news over the summer, so check the website and blog often!

I am so impressed by Mrs. Flanagan, the student wellness committee, and countless volunteers for taking time last Saturday to work on our school grounds. The results are breathtaking! Please take a moment to watch the clip below!

Last Thursday our school became a laboratory for philanthropy and democracy…that’s right…our Penny Harvest Town Hall. Our student leaders educated students(and adults) at each lunch about issues that could use our attention! Every EHBi student and staff member then voted for the issue he or she cares most about. No word yet on the voting results, but here are a few photos from the afternoon.

If you are anything like me, you may have felt a little blue after that groundhog saw his shadow! I thought our entire community could use a few pictures to lift their spirits. We had a great week at EHBi. Our fantastic physical education teachers continued to craft exciting lessons in smaller spaces; we got our technology lab relocated to its temporary home in our library; we kicked off our family book club by introducing our students to Stuart Little; and we published an informational pamphlet for our incoming kindergarten students. Enjoy!

Mouse invades EHBi

January 27, 2014

Well…yes and no! A mouse, a famous mouse, is about to invade EHBi! It is Stuart Little. We are set to begin our second annual Family Book Club. On Thursday and Friday, students will be introduced to Stuart Little, by E.B. White. All families will receive their books on Friday afternoon. Our first reading assignment will be chapters 1-5. I hope each family enjoys this great classic in children’s literature. I can’t wait to hear what you think!

In other news, more than 130 students have enrolled in After School Enrichment. The first week of classes went well, despite being interrupted by another blizzard! Take a peek at pictures from Things That Go Boom and Kids in the Kitchen.

The repairs to our gym have begun in earnest. Beginning today, the abatement of the gym ceiling began. The work will begin at 3:00 PM and continue until 11:00 PM each day for the next few weeks. In the interim, students continue to learn and thrive. Take a peek at pictures from classroom gym.

Next week, we invite the public to visit schools in Dennis Yarmouth. Our School Council has prepared a pamphlet to share with parents of preschoolers. We’d like to include quotes from parents about their family’s experiences at EHBi. If you have a quote to share, please comment on this post. Have a great week! Mr. D:)
