Congratulations to the Lego Track Meet Team for being the first Saint George team to attend the event on Saturday! They entered 4 events and got two first places and a third place. Extra kudos to Trinity for designing a robot that could drive up a 70 degree incline and to Brennan for designing the fastest robot in the whole competition! Go Dragons!

Our fish are being fired and as batches come out of the kiln they are being sealed with a coat of acrylic gesso! In between creating the fish and preparing them for final painting is our time to dig into the history of the run: What was it like in our community when the fish came in? Why did we lose our run? What has been done to try and restore the run? blog post link https://alewives.edublogs.org/

On Friday, St. George School students and staff celebrated Better World Day by participating in various community service projects up and down the peninsula. Whether it was picking up trash around town, filling up little free libraries, creating a garden, or making our school sign more beautiful, a meaningful and fun day was had by all. Each year, thousands of students across the country at EL network schools join together with one common purpose: to make the world a better place. It is a guiding message woven throughout our year, but made clearly visible on this unique day.

The 6th graders have been learning about topographic maps and contour lines in STEAM classes, so we decided to make use of our skills and go on a hike. Half chose to go to Bald Rock and the other half hiked over Megunticook to the Camden Hills State Park entrance. We had a great adventure!
