Thank you to all who volunteered to chaperone our upcoming field trips. It is nice to have so many parents willing to join us on these new learning experiences.
There will be no new lifetime words added for the remainder of the school year. Please review the complete list of words on the homework sheet with your child.
Haddam History Reports:
We finished presenting the Haddam History Reports today. They were absolutely wonderful! It is clear from the way the students’ faces lit up as they presented their projects to the class that this was a fun and exciting learning experience for them. I hope it was for all of you as well. I appreciate the support and guidance that you gave to them to help them learn more about their town.
End-of-the-Year Class Gathering:
Please let me know if you are interested in planning the end-of-the-year class gathering. We will be planning it for the second to last day of school - Thursday, June 21st.
Upcoming Important Dates:
BES third grade students were thrilled to talk to Haddam's First Selectwoman Lizz Milardo today! She came for a visit to speak with the students about the persuasive letters that were sent to her office earlier this year. Our BES students spoke about their wonderful ideas and suggestions to help improve our community. Mrs. Milardo had clearly read each and every letter, as she addressed each student with thoughtful responses and heartfelt explanations. Discussions about animal shelters, skate parks, street lights, sidewalks and restaurants were accompanied with huge smiles!
As a result of today's visit, the students feel incredibly empowered and have seen first hand that their voices can make a difference. I am very proud of our students and very grateful that we live in a community that listens to even the youngest of our citizens. I'm sure that the visit today is something that these students will not soon forget.
Thank you Mrs. Milardo!
Happy Spring! Here is some important information for you…

The task was to design an aluminum foil float that could hold multiple pennies without sinking. The students worked together through the design process and had a wonderful time! I always enjoy watching my third grade students interact with the kindergarteners. They have such patience and kindness with their young buddies.
