Grade 3 Entrepreneurial Adventure - Animal Cookies - Product Recall
cats and dogs.png Our entrepreneurial group is sad to announce that we will not be able to sell the remaining cookie mix that we made to support the SPCA. We did sell some cookie mix at Family Fun Night and we were planning on selling the rest before school ended. A phone call was received over the weekend from Costco stating that the flour that was purchased there was being recalled for possible E.coli contamination. I was told at Costco that the flour I purchased was not manufactured at the factory that did find contamination in their flour, but to be safe, Costco is recalling it because it is from the same company. Better to be safe than sorry! Ms. Roy

PARK STREET SCHOOL SUMMER CAMPS 2017
   PARK STREET SCHOOL SUMMER CAMPS – 2017
 
In an effort to enhance learning over the summer months, Park Street School will be offering two camps: Creative Language Arts and Math/Science and Technology.  These camps are designed for all grade levels of elementary school students.
 
CREATIVE LANGUAGE ARTS
The Creative Language Arts camp will be an opportunity for students to learn curriculum outcomes in a manner that is creative and exciting.  Reading, writing and presentation skills will be addressed in such a way as to help students value and enjoy literacy. Students will also have an opportunity to experience such activities as black light theatre, puppet shows, field trips and many other fun and exciting themes.  Be sure to bring your imagination with you.
 
MATH/SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Math and Science are wonderful!  Math and Science are fun!  This is the attitude we would like our students to have towards Math and Science since understanding these subjects is so important in today’s technologically advanced society.  The camp will teach school math/ science outcomes by using creative and hands-on approaches including the use of technology with digital cameras, video cameras and computers to explain age-appropriate concepts.  Come and learn about math/science technology and do some neat experiments!
 
These camps will reinforce Park Street School’s emphasis on leadership and citizenship development using the “Leader In Me” program based on Steven Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.
 
Please Note:  If children have taken these camps during previous years, please know that our camp coordinators introduce NEW ideas/projects every summer.
 
Please see attched for complete information. Registration forms may be obtained online or at the office.
