A group of Fair Haven Grade School sixth graders have a lot to be proud of. They developed the first Lego League Robotics Club in our Slate Valley School District! Team Falcons’ members are John C., Anaya P., Charles D., Joey R., and John T. They are directed by Head Coach JoAnna Surething and Michelle Larose-Mangan. The group met weekly since the beginning of the school year in September, right up to the day of competition on January 28th. This group pioneered into the competition and did an amazing job! Not only did they build and program their bot to perform certain tasks, they also gave a wonderful presentation on their innovative project and learning. The Falcons traveled to Norwich University for the competition. They scored 12th out of 26 teams that participated from around the state. Proudly the team demonstrated the SOAR (Safety, Ownership, Acceptance, and Respect) values of their school. We, not only at Fair Haven Grade School, but across the entire Slate Valley School District are so incredibly proud of this group’s achievements. Congratulations Falcons, we can’t wait to see what you do carrying this enthusiasm with you next year entering middle school. Go to this link to see a slide show: https://youtu.be/0TMSZ3bCPVk

During Library Class with Mrs. Rampone, students in grades K-4 read The Midnight Fair by Gideon Sterer. In the book, at midnight, woodland animals decide to go to the fair after all the humans leave. They go on the rides, play games and eat all kinds of fair food! Students in K-1 colored carousel horses and designed strips of paper for a roller coaster. Grades 2-4 created rides, games and concession stands. What kinds of rides do you like? Fast or slow? What is your favorite food to eat at the fair? Click the link to see a short video highlighting the students' work. https://youtu.be/h4lOm-6tpjQ

Thank you Hubbardton Forge for welcoming our students over the past months. Students enrolled in the Career Exploration course were able to witness first hand the various departments of Hubbardton Forge. Employees graciously gave time out of their busy schedule to share their expertise. Eating donuts, handing out t-shirts and taking a great photo culminated this wonderful collaborative opportunity. Slate Valley is appreciative for this community partnership.
