Halloween Happenings, Minecraft and Electric Fence!

What a wonderful and varied week we have had! The Halloween committee did an outstanding job at creating a Haunted Walk on the Woods Trail complete with spooky decorations and haunted music. The day continued with a parade of costumes, a Halloween dance party, limbo, and trying to eat donuts from a string hanging from our crabapple tree. Some of the older students challenged Ali with the Electric Fence activity, while WMSI challenged our students with a team building Minecraft activity. We had paper twirling with our favorite intern, Emma, in one room and geometry happening in tandem in another room. Paul worked with Miles and Pilot on creating their own topographic maps, and Kathy took our newly formed group, Middle Student Experience, to the Inkwell to work on their self-selected goals for the year. Meanwhile, the OSE group had an impromptu expedition to wonder at the Wild Ammonoosuc in all its glory after our torrential rainfall and windstorm earlier in the week. And our youngest student grabbed a shovel and pitched right in with Farmers Tim and Matt as they added another step and a pile of gravel to the front of our school. Thanks, Walter!
