Bobcat Bulletin v. 36

May 17, 2024


There was a lot of joy and excitement in our hallways this week.  We want to thank our students, families, community members and teachers for a spectacular concert last evening.  Our students were very proud to show off their artwork and perform for such a warm audience.  



On Wednesday morning Judi Byron from the Waterbury Public Library visited our Whole School Assembly to share pictures and stories from her recent trip to Antarctica.  Our students were wowed by penguins, seals, icebergs and arctic outdoor camping!  Many thanks to Judi for sharing her trip and our students for being such good audience members. 


Next week MES will be welcoming Marker Artists Lucie deLaBruere and Christina Smith for our PTO sponsored artists-in-residence week.  This residency, titled “Inspired by Nature, a STEAM-Infused Maker Residency” will be asking our students to dig into nature and be curious about how the natural world has solved human problems.  We are still looking for donations of the following items and would appreciate you sending them in on Monday morning if you have any to spare:


  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Toilet Paper Rolls
  • Paper Towel Rolls
  • Cereal Boxes
  • Shoe Box (hoping to provide one for each student)
  • Wide Mouth Jar with lid (hoping to provide one for each student)


We had a special guest at school on Thursday to help fifth grader Keegan Staples with his passion project.  Peter Hirschfeld from Vermont Public graciously spent time with Keegan and was the one getting interviewed this time around!  Pete had some kind words for Moretown after receiving a "warm" welcome.  


Preschool students in Miss Jenny and Miss Lisa's class spent some time working dough this week and made their own pizza!  They smelt really good and filled up some really happy bellys.


We are in store for a beautiful weekend and I hope that you all take some time to enjoy it.  I will be working in our gardens, watching some baseball games (Go Sox!) and playing outside with my kids and dog.  Next week will be another exciting week and I look forward to welcoming our students back on Monday.
