We wanted to share a fun visit that Zero the Hero had with BCEMS kindergarteners this past Monday, the 100th day of school! BCEMS Principal Brenda Waterhouse, BC Kindergarten teacher Allyson Healey, and the whole K team celebrated the 100th day with all of the students by working on their numeracy skills with a real superhero! Check out the celebration.
This annual event is a fun and engaging way to make math connections for our students that the whole community looks forward to every year. The kids absolutely loved it!
We also wanted to share this update:
Plans for April 8 Total Solar Eclipse
As most people are aware, central Vermont is going to be a popular part of the earth on April 8. There will be a very rare total solar eclipse that day, and our part of the world will be a perfect place to see it!
Here is an excellent description of the event from UVM's Space Grant Consortium:
The timing for the event is not good for our school day unfortunately, with the prime time for viewing taking place right at dismissal. Due to this timing, we will be joining most other districts in the region in holding an Early Release day for all students and staff on Monday, April 8. A few other details for the BTMES and BCEMS communities:
* March 27 was a scheduled Early Release Day, but it will now be a regular day for all.
* April 11 will remain on the calendar for Parent/Teacher conferences.
Let's hope for a clear day for Vermont in early April so we can all experience this once in a lifetime event!
