On Friday students celebration Halloween and also their new monster sculpture. The celebration began in the morning with water color painting of the "Wild Things". Check them out in the photo gallery. Following some classroom work, the entire school met with the police officers from our town who talked tothe students about Halloween safety. After a yummy lunch, the students and the monster, Fergusarous, went marching in a parade down Main Street. Despite the rain, it a great parade. The students returned to school and read Halloween stories to the younger students. Check out the photo under Halloween Celebration.

On Thursday after, October 7, the fourth grade just finished their fourth straight day of tested and need a spark of excitement. The class decided to participate in the O.R.E.O. project. Student in groups of two were given a package of Oreos cookies and the challenge of stacking them. Student alternating turns had to stack the oreos one on top of another. Once they placed their Oreo cookie on the "stack" students were not allowed to make any adjustments to the stack. In our classroom, the highest stack was 30 cookies. Check out the pictures!. In between stacking, students explored averages and graphing.
Recently I students told a story using the classic "door scene" story lined. The students in small group had to tell a story about a character hearing a strange noise behind a door and then opening the door. This scene needed to be captured under ten still picture frames. Here is their amazing work:
On Friday, Sept 24 the fourth grade traveled 1 and 1/2 south on Interstate 93 to visit their state capitol and hopefully meet the governor and a supreme court justice. They toured the State Capitol building in the morning but unfortunately the governor was at a meeting. After at siesta at White's Park, the fourth grade visited the Supreme Court. Again, there was no justices around but the students learned about the court system. All in all, it was a fabulous day and the students learned a lot about our government.
This week the fourth grade celebrated Pinwheels for Peace along with many other schools around the world. Check out the student writing about International Peace Day in their individual student web pages
Brainwaves, thanks for the idea. We look forward to meeting all of you.
The video above is a time lapse of an element being built on our new playground. In a span of two days, volunteers from around the community helped build a new playground for the students at Lafayette Regional School. During those two days, the entire community came together and spent over 16 hours building various different elements. Our playground now has 8 new swings, climbing elements, Freddy the Firetruck, a "gerbil ball" and much more. Thanks to all the volunteers who made this happen.
