The weather is finally starting to cooperate and we are getting some pretty spring days. It is still cool, but that helps to keep us all focused on school. Only 2 more months until school is out. 

Students enjoyed the nice weather and made some bird feeders to put out in the new Stem park.

8th grade move up ceremony is on the last day of school, Thursday, June 16 at 9:30 AM in the Senior High School Gymnasium. We look forward to seeing you there.

We have a new club this year, Unified theater. They have been working hard for their upcoming play, "May the Forth Be With You: A War Between the Stars" 

The play will be on, of course, May 4th, at 6:30 PM in the auditorium. Be sure to come see the hard work students have been putting into the play. This play is an original work that the students have been writing. It is an entirely student run show and will be lots of fun.  

Thanks to so many of the parents who came Monday night to Student Led Conferences (SLC). They were very successful and students were very proud of themselves for being able to have such professional conversations with their parents about their grades. It was a huge success.

The local Hiandlo Fire Department is having a Chowder and Craft Fair event on April 25. Check out the flyer for more details. 

Here are some fun pictures from students taking notes on their iPads during a geography class.

Happy Spring?!? Or is it. 
It sure has been a week of wild weather. I certainly did not anticipate having to reschedule our SLC because of snow. But the snow that fell Monday night had other plans. As a reminder, SLC are scheduled for Monday April 11 - same times.

Tonight is opening night for our Jr/ Sr Drama Production "The Little Mermaid." It will be a very exciting couple of days for the students who have put in a lot of hours of rehearsal. Come under the sea with us.

On March 24 the yearbook committee had the 8th grade picture taken out on the field. It was a windy day, but the picture came out great. Thanks to our ladder helpers that made sure our photographer was able to snap those photos. 

EWG hosted the RI Middle Level Band Festival March 31 and April 1. Our middle school band was 1.2 points shy of receiving a rating superior. We always think they are outstanding. Check out this snippet from the festival

Last Friday was no April fools joke that we had our Knights of the Month. Congratulations to all of the students who were recognized for their positive attitudes, hard work, and kindness shown to others.

8th grade students must be looking ahead to high school already since many of our teacher recognition awards this month was about how much teachers have helped them get prepared for the high school. Congratulations to Ms. Murray our math teacher who was selected as teacher Knight of the Month for March.
