Miss Claffey's Class Learn about Nature at the New Britain Youth Museum and get to Meet their Writing Buddies!!

 At the New Britain Youth Museum, students learned about different animals, including snakes.  They were able to touch the snake if they wanted to.  Most of the students were very brave!  They learned about the food chain as well.


 Students loved being about to touch the chinchilla!

 We went to a pond at Hungerford Park and collected samples of water to test.

 Back at the museum, students placed water in their slides to look at under the microscope.

We even got to see some animals!

On Time, All Day, Every Day!

Regular attendance at school is important for all students. We know that having children in school on time, all day, every day can make a big difference in their achievement. Of course we all recognize that there are going to be days when students need to be home due to illness, but research shows that making regular school attendance a priority will have a positive impact on student learning.

Please do your best to have your child at school in time to be in their classroom no later than 8:50 a.m.

We’ll be recognizing classrooms with “perfect attendance” at our upcoming SURFS Up Celebration. Thank you for your support of our attendance goal and your support in ensuring that your child is in school On Time, All Day, Every Day!
