Zillah Herrington Literacy Awards

June 21, 2017 - The elementary school held their annual Zillah Herrington Literacy Awards on Monday for grades three, four and five.

This program was started in 1960 by Mrs. Herrington, she recognized that literacy is the key to academic success and went about getting books into children's hands and encouraging every student to be the best they could be. Through community support PTO purchases a book for every student in grades PK-6 to kickoff our student's summer reading. The Zillah Herrington Literacy Program is a great Hoosic Valley tradition that PTO is proud to continue.

School Garden Update

June 20, 2017 - Ms. Dennis' First Grade class has been studying recycling this spring, learning to reduce trash, how and what to recycle, and how to reuse items in order to save our natural resources. The students went outside to learn about a new way of recycling - composting. With the help of Mr. Corlew, cafeteria director, & the cafeteria staff, vegetable and fruit scraps were collected from the kitchen and taken out to the composting bins at the school garden. The students learned how to layer torn newspapers, dried leaves, fresh grass, and kitchen scraps to form a compost pile, leaving it to decompose with the help of beneficial microscopic organisms & tiny insects. The students also looked at some finished compost and how it can be used to enrich the soil in the raised beds of the garden. They noted that it seemed just like dirt, not stinky like rotten vegetables, and they enjoyed looking for the helpful insects that live in the compost.

The following week Ms. Dennis' class learned about another kind of composting with Red Wiggler Worms. The tiny worms live in a plastic bin with air holes & eat kitchen scraps. The students took a close look at the little worms and noticed that they are much smaller than the earthworms we find outside in the garden. Then they helped set up the worms' new home with shredded newspaper & cardboard, and kitchen scraps, such as coffee grounds, carrot peelings, avocado shells, squishy sweet potatoes, egg shells, shriveled strawberries, and banana peels. The bedding material was dampened and covered, as the worms like a dark place to live.  They students looked forward to adding their own food scraps to the worm bin and observing what foods the worms like best.
