It is that time of the year again for the Shapleigh Memorial School yearbooks! Our yearbooks contain school photos and classroom photos for each grade level as well as a special section that highlights our 5th graders. The cost for our yearbook this year is $16.00. Order forms must be returned by June 1st. Just a reminder, that all 5th graders will receive a yearbook as part of their gift from the PTC during the 5th grade celebration event.

Shapleigh students had a Harvest of the Month kitchen visit with our district nutrition department. They learned about blueberry harvesting in Maine, then zipped on over to the kitchen watch a 'blueberry smoothie' being made, followed by a taste test of course!
Classrooms did an amazing run with our recent coin challenge and raised over $1800, which exceeded the $1500 goal that was set. Due to all their hard work we had 8 staff members volunteer to be “pied.” It was a great treat enjoyed by all. See the video here: https://youtu.be/Lzh2ew-bU0k
Kindergarten finished off their construction unit this week with a "Touch a Truck" activity. They were able to see and learn about an ambulance, tractor, utility vehicle, semi truck and an antique car. Thank you to our volunteers for bringing in some unique vehicles for our learners to look at.

What a great job by our Readers Theater crew! They performed "A Long Winter," written by Elaine Lindy & Lindsay Parker. This was an adventure story set in Canada. Children in grade kindergarten through grade 5 took part in making costumes, backdrops, title letters and reading parts. We will look to do more of these in the future!
