Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.  ~John Ruskin

Welcome! We have an exciting year ahead of us. This year you will be part of a team.  Mrs. Somes and I work together.  She teaches social studies and ela (english language arts), while I teach math and science.  This year we have a late lunch (1:05pm), so please bring a hearty, healthy snack  and a water bottle every day! Your brain and body need energy in order for you to do your best.  A highlight of your year will be our trip to Truro, but we have many other exciting classroom activities planned as well.
