Wednesday was a special day at B-HVS! The students heard presentations about a wide variety of careers. They asked some excellent questions and everyone had a great time!
An extra special thanks to all of the area professionals that took time from their busy day to visit B-HVS and speak with our students!
B-HVS in the news!
Last week a reporter from the Citizen visited B-HVS and wrote an article about some of the programs we offer in our greenhouse. The article is no longer available to view without an online subscription, but we do have some extra copies in the office. You can also see it framed in the greenhouse entryway along with a couple of beautiful pictures of some of the plants the students have grown. Follow the link below to see the article in Thursday’s Citizen (3/31/16) on the B-HVS greenhouse. http://tinyurl.com/hcgsqj7
PSU's Portable Planetarium
On Thursday we were fortunate to have Plymouth State University’s Portable Planetarium set up in the gym for the day. PSU Planetarium Director Dennis
Machnik presented a 40-minute show to each class inside the dome under a
projected image of the night sky. He spoke to the students about stars, planets and
constellations and shared many fascinating facts. The students had excellent
questions and observations. A special thanks to PSU for this opportunity!
A few policy reminders as we finish out the school year:
- Toys are not permitted at school as outlined in the Student/Parent Handbook on page 26. These items distract from the learning environment and should be left at home.
- Children should come to school dressed appropriately, safely and according to the Dress Code that is outlined on page 28 and 29 of the Student/Parent Handbook. As the weather warms up, please remember that bare midriffs short shorts and revealing clothing are not permitted and the straps on tank tops should be at least 2” wide. Flip flop style shoes are also not permitted.
We aim to keep B-HVS a safe place to learn and play!
B-HVS PTCO Barbeque
Please see the flyer that was sent home last week for information on this family event. In addition to the BBQ there will also be a touch-a-truck event, buy one get one free book fair and a seedling sale. If you do plan to attend, please fill in the bottom of the flyer and send it back to school so we have an approximate idea of the number of guests expected. If you are considering bringing a dish to share, we are mostly in need of side dishes and snack items. We hope you can join us for this fun evening!
B-HVS Spring Concert
B-HVS STEM Challenge
Gold Coin Catapults
Each class divided into groups to build a catapult from popsicle sticks and elastic bands. The groups competed against each other in class to determine who could launch 5 gold coins the furthest combined distance.
The winning team from each class went on to compete against each other in a special assembly on Friday morning.
1st and 2nd grade competed in one round, and 3rd, 4th and 5th in another.
The students showed great imagination and
innovation in their catapult designs.
Congratulations on another successful STEM
Teacher Appreciation Week
A Message from the PTCO...
This week, students and parent volunteers have been busy showing their appreciation for our teachers and staff. Each day staff was treated to delicious snacks provided by our PTCO members and parents. At the end of the week the PTCO organized a free raffle of wonderful gifts donated by B-HVS parents. The Bridgewater-Hebron Village School teachers and staff would like to send a big thank you to our thoughtful parents and PTCO members!
