On Wednesday afternoon the weather cleared up just enough for the eighth grade to test their trebuchets.  The project required the eighth grade students to work in groups designing and building trebuchets that would launch water balloons toward targets on the playground.  The whole school had the chance to watch and cheer on the teams. 

Field Day!

Field Day is on Friday May 25 at Freetown State Forest from 8:30 AM until 2:30 PM.   Please sign - up to help bring needed cookout items.  We are also looking to borrow a grill for the day.  Stop by the office or give us a call if you have one we could use.  Thanks!

The Sneetches

The First Grade Readers Theater did a wonderful job with their production of The Sneetches. 

Community Helpers

The preschoolers have been learning about Community Helpers.  They were visited this week by a Nurse and a Police Officer.  Both visitors are school parents that volunteered to talk to the preschoolers about the work that they do in our community.

The Spring Art Show

The Antioch Art Show was a wonderful success! 
 Thank You to Mrs. Carter and to all of the volunteers that helped put the show together.  

Kindergarten Bug Catchers

Kindergarten has made "bug catchers" out of recycled materials.  The project directly correlates with the habitat and insect themes they are learning about in science.  The Kindergartners have learned to keep their found creatures for only a short while because they cannot provide a "true habitat" which includes all of the things that the insects need to live.
