Monday April 26th - International Night - Our 5th Annual International night is sure to be a success. If you haven't participated in this event in the past you will want to. Set-up will be at 5:30 and we will start at 6:00pm at the River Church. Children or families choose a country to study and then present what they have learned any way they see fit. Most use foam or cardboard display boards found at Staples. Included are maps, flags, pictures, writing, models, art projects, costumes, money whatever you make or have. Everyone brings a dish from their country and we have a pot luck dinner. We also ask that you created a stamp or sticker that represents you country - think sticker paper and clip art. Each child will get a passport and the stamp from each country will be put in their passport when they "visit" the country. Lastly you need to submit four questions that can be answered by looking at your display. Two should be geared towards 3rd grade and younger. Two for 4th grade and up. These will be used to make a scavenger hunt for the kids. It helps them keep focused and really visit each display and learn something. This is a great event for dads to come to as well as to invite family and friends. In order to make the program for the event I will need to know what country you will be doing. Each child can do their own or you can do one as a family. Please email Elizabeth J to let her know what country you are doing and you questions.

Also be watching for the following activities:
Remick Farm
Amoskeag Fishways
Earth Day and Gardening
Goat Farm
Spring Road Clean-up
Red Cross Class
