Well, our school year has finally begun! If our start is any indication, it is going to be a great year! We welcomed back our SEALS classroom, and regained use of our art, music, and speech and language rooms! In about a week or so, we will regain the use of our gym!
We welcome the following new teachers to our school:
Mrs. Burlingame, grade 2
Ms Lee, special education
Mrs. Wilkey-Farrell, special education
Mrs. Walsh, Title I
Ms Gainey, occupational therapy
New and returning teaching assistants include:
Pictures say it best! Here are pictures from our summer book swap at Johnny Kelley Park, our kindergarten story hour, and, of course, today. Enjoy!
As we prepare to begin another year, we received an unexpected visit from Matt Malone, the Massachusetts Secretary of Education. Mr. Malone was eager to hear about the progress of our Innovation School, and was impressed with our students commitment to wellness and philanthropy. He challenged us to do even more with science and technology, and hopes to visit again this fall! Take a look!
This was a busy week at EHBi! Check out some pictures from the week. In the first pic, Brenden helps out during our Living with Differences Assembly for grade 2. Then take a peek at our annual Memorial Day Assembly. Finally, Sam shows off a Lego truck he fashioned at after school activities. Have a great weekend!
April showers apparently bring more showers this year! Luckily, there is plenty of warmth and energy inside at EHBi! Check out two installments from the EHBi Poetry Bloggers! There is also a movie from our Community Service Drop Everything and Write! Aren’t you so proud of our students????
These have been busy weeks! Check out another Poetry Bloggers video. Then check out the pics of our wellness committee testing student created smoothie recipes, first grade mathematicians collecting data, and more first graders enjoying Jump for Heart stations. WOW!
The Poetry Bloggers know that April is Poetry Month! Check out their first installment!
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.
