Meeting with Superintendent Bott

Dear Driscoll School Community,

As a first step in the Driscoll School Renovation and Expansion feasibility study that was moved forward by the Select Board and School Committee this past Wednesday, two Driscoll community forums have been scheduled for next week. These forums will be attended by me and members of the School Committee. The community forums are scheduled for:

  • Thursday, June 21 @ 6:30 p.m. in the Driscoll School library
  • Friday, June 22 @ 8:15 a.m. in the Driscoll School library

I look forward to seeing you next week to hear your concerns, answer your questions, and engage in an important conversation about this process.

Sincerely,

Andrew J. Bott
Superintendent

Books Due Back at the Library

The end of the year is approaching, so it is time to get those library books back to the library!  All library books are due back this week, on your child’s normal library day. If you are not able to find a book, please contact me so that we can make arrangements to find a replacement for the library.

Summer Reading

Driscoll Summer Reading is going online this year!  In an effort to go green and make summer reading materials available wherever you may travel this summer, all the great Driscoll summer reading resources will be posted online.  The summer reading page (featuring icons designed by Driscoll students) will include summer reading requirements for each grade and links to reading lists, reading logs, reading bingo, and even writing bingo sheets – all wonderful, fun ways to keep those reading and writing skills up over the summer!  The link to this page will be emailed out to families.
Students will visit the library over the next two weeks for Summer Reading Assemblies.  They will learn about summer reading expectations for their grade, hear from the public librarian Miss Caroline about their fabulous summer reading program, and browse books from the summer reading list to make a list a books they want to read this summer.  Happy Reading! Ms. Reid, Librarian  [email protected]

The Latest from the Driscoll Garden

What’s Growing On?

We are recovering from a great Spring Fair. Thanks to our volunteers, and all those who stopped by the garden to learn about and support the garden program. We shared 150 salads grown organically in our school garden by students. We are composting the plates and forks. Fairgoers also helped paint 120 pickets that we will use to make a mini-picket fence to brighten up the garden and protect flower seedlings.  The fence will be installed within the next two weeks.

Our Wednesday after school class was chaotic, occurring right before the start of the fair.  We tried our luck at bug racing, and we also did an exploration activity I’m thinking of calling Who’s In My Pile – basically we met organisms that inhabit garden material piles. Various insects, invertebrates, cephalopods, amphibians, and reptiles were observed, handled and discussed.

We have begun signing up families for summer garden maintenance/harvesting. SIGN UP your family to get hands-on with your Driscoll Garden, and reap the rewards. You can choose one or more weeks to be responsible for monitoring, watering, weeding, harvesting, and eating. Victor will conduct an orientation class in June, and be on-call all summer to answer questions and help solve problems.

The next garden committee meeting will be Wednesday June 6th, 8:00 am in the cafeteria. There is so much potential at Driscoll, to create an awesome outdoor experiential learning environment for the entire school community. Let’s keep growing!
