Red Clover Day

On April 10th, students at Moretown School celebrated Red Clover Day.  5th and 6th graders were responsible for creating an activity for one of this year's Red Clover books.  The activities were fun filled games, arts and crafts, & cookie decorating!  Kindergarten-4th graders were put into mixed age groups to visit each of the activities.  Kids made fancy cats, played a tag game, did a scavenger hunt, dove through "flaming" hoops, and much much more.  At the end students voted for their favorite book from the list.  The book that received the most votes from our school was Glamourpuss by Sarah Weeks.  The winner for the whole state will be announced shortly so check in later to find out.

It's Slime to Read Week



Last Thursday, March 30, the Moretown Student Book Committee launched a school wide challenge to read 15,000 pages.  I thought that this was going to be an ambitious venture, but our students sure proved me wrong. Well, my socks are totally blown right off!!  Moretown School read at least 33,847 pages in one week!!  The sweet reward?  Mr. Pierson got slimed!  Students eagerly awaited this moment.  Excitement was high and the slime was gooey!
