Mrs. Cox's 8th grade science class recently learned how to make pickles. Little did they know that they would learn science and math in the process! They also learned how to be responsible for a specific task and follow it through. Watch for raffle tickets for these delicious pickles, as 8th graders raffle pickles to raise funds for their 8th grade trip at the end of the year.

I want to share some good news with our community. We recently introduced the Sanford Harmony Program to our school in grades Pre-K – grade five. The Harmony Program is designed to promote positive relationships among students and is operating in over 120 school nationwide. The program is part of the Sanford Educational Collaborative that has connections to nine universities including the University of Maine at Orono. Representatives from UMO visited us in early February to see how we are progressing and they recently sent us a nice note, complimenting us on our implementation.
