October 1-12, 2012

Welcome to the Freeman-Kennedy blog.  
Students and staff are engaging in many educational opportunities.  

Grade 5 students in Mrs. Horton's and Mrs. Grout's classes had the opportunity to watch a virtual live webinar with author J.K.Rowling live from Edinburgh, Scotland. Harry Potter books have been popular among children and adults for many years, all over the world.  J.K.Rowling read out loud from her first book "Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone." She recently launched a new website called POTTERMORE.  This website allows people, young and old, to take a new adventure into her books.  Mrs. Horton's and Mrs. Grout's classes will be taking some time to explore this new website.  We can't wait to hear more about their adventure on this amazing new site.

Grade 5 students are exited to watch author J.K. Rowling live from Edinburgh!

 Grade 3 students have created "Friendship Faces" in art class.  All the "students" are happy and sticking together!  The detail of each person along the fence is amazing!

Students in grade 5 are discovering that the weight of a solid ice cube and a liquid ice cube weighs the same! 

Megan Connor and Rachel Palumbo are members of the King Philip High School DECA program who came to Freeman-Kennedy School to share the community service program they are running, called "KPCares".  KPCares will focus on sending letters, illustrations, and packages to men and women who are currently deployed overseas.  The purpose of their visit was to involve all the Freeman-Kennedy students in community service learning.  We hope all students in our school will participate and write a letter or illustrate a picture for someone in the military!  We are very thankful to Megan and Rachel for their continuous  involvement in community service learning!  We hope these letters will bring huge smiles to everyone overseas!

Thanks for reading the Freeman-Kennedy blog.  Stay tuned for the next blog on October 26, 2012.

   Sincerely, Mrs. Altham-Hickey
