Garden Update

Bean tepees are ready thanks to the volunteer work of parents and children last Friday the 13th. The Reader Buddy team of Mrs. Newett and Mrs. Young planted about 40 mammoth sunflowers at the school's main entrance and at our union River Outdoor Classroom. These will great you in September! The first graders are about to plant bean seeds and their five varieties of pumpkins and squashes. The Learning Community's cabbages are becoming gigantic and their radishes are ready to eat. They will soon plant their corn which they plan to serve as popcorn next school year!
Mrs. Roguski is planting surprise veggies with her students before the school is over, and Mrs. Stackpole from 7th grade is also taking over. Take a leisure walk at our two school gardens and enjoy! If you want to volunteer on a one time basis or on a particular project please contact our office or write to christalittlesiebold@gmail.com

Annual Walk-A-Thon

The annual Walk-A-Thon is Friday, May 30th. For every $5 pledge, a student will receive a raffle ticket. This will give students a chance to win the following prizes: bicycles, skate board, movie tickets, Fun Park tickets, a YMCA Youth membership, Morton’s Moo ice cream, and other gift certificates. This is the only fund raiser that EEMS K-4 sponsors throughout the year.

Maine College Circle Essay Winners

Thursday is a big night for 25 EEMS students from who will receive a $100 college scholarship at EEMS at 6PM. Please note the location change as City Hall is not big enough for this event. The event will be held in the EEMS cafeteria. Be sure to RSVP to Bob Stuart.



Sharing a few pictures that show the great energy at our First Spring Garden Party. 7 families showed up with tools including beach buckets to work in the gardens on Friday, May 9.

EEMS started their vermiculture bins in the classrooms of Mrs. Kell (Learning Community), Mrs. Brown (grade 4), and Mrs. Mattila (grade 7). Parent volunteer Wayne Simmons prepared the bins. Marjorie Peronto, specialist in vermiculture of the University of Maine Extension came to do demonstrations in those classrooms. Soon these students will be "feeding" the soil of our school gardens.
