Our Cove School 5th graders have been working on a vernal pool place based learning project. Students had to analyze and interpret data from a staff and parent survey on visitation to the Cove School Vernal Pool. One of the problems they discovered was that students were not visiting the vernal pool regularly. A possible solution was to create a sign so visitors would know here the entrance to the pool could be found. Our fifth graders worked on a vernal pool poster contest and one lucky fifth grader was chosen. Congratulations to our winner Mars Orfanos on his vernal pool poster!!!
A wonderfully successful evening of Poetry! Thanks to all who attended and took part in our event!! I (Sue McLane) was so concerned about remembering to thank the "big people" - Mass Cultural Council, Cove School Faculty, Andrew Green, city and state legislators, Cove school families for supporting our arts... I FORGOT to thank the "big people to me" - Meagan Grant, Sarah Burgess, Jen Sidmore, Diana DeRochemente, Kelly Johnson, Martha Tassineri, Carla Orr. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! It would not have been a success without your help, ideas, help, help and more help! I am so proud of what we did!

At this time, many of

middle school next year. This transition is clearly an important event in your child's
life, and one that we would like to make as smooth and comfortable as possible.
In order to facilitate
this transition into middle school, we have scheduled two separate events.Our first event is our Grade 5 Move-Up Night,
scheduled for Thursday, January 22, 2015.You and your child are invited to learn about Briscoe Middle School and
meet some members of its faculty, beginning at 7:00 PM in the school’s
auditorium.During this evening, you
will hear from the school’s administration, guidance counselors, and current 6th
grade teachers.In addition, you will be
afforded the opportunity to tour the building with your child after the
presentation in the auditorium.Please
mark your calendars for Thursday, January 22nd at 7:00 PM.We hope to see you all there!
Our second event will
be scheduled for the spring of 2015.At
this time, administrators from Briscoe will be visiting your child’s elementary
school for a question and answer session.Prior to this visit, we will be providing transition forms to your child’s
teacher so that we may begin scheduling for our 2014-2015 school year.
