March can be a tough month but FSP has some fabulous events & field trips that help keep the blues at bay. I'll post some Outing Club trips soon - our own fabulous Nicole managed to procure a 2-night gift certificate from Maine Huts & Trails for the auction, so if you can't wait to return or now need to experience it for yourself, an overnight at Flagstaff Lake kickstarted the month in a great way.
TODAY is the last day to reenroll at a discounted tuition - get that paperwork in!
Tomorrow, the 7/8 graders are headed to lunch with Haley at Tu Casa. Their challenge is to make a whole meal on $10 per person and only speak Spanish.
Over the weekend (and no-school day on Friday) check out the Portland Flower Show and find Naomi's winning poem on the essay-contest board!
The 1/2 class heads to Southworth Planetarium and the Osher Map Museum next week - hoping I get to come along for that day!
On March 13th FSP has the unique opportunity to bring teachers and parents together for a workshop with Ross Greene - here are a few web sites to become more familiar with his work: http://www.livesinthebalance.org/ and http://www.lostatschool.org/
On March 16th the 7/8 take to the stage -- the dessert only potluck provides simplicity and their show is sure to provide some laughs!
March 23rd is Lasagna Day - order yours now - pick up at FSP
March 25th is Maine Maple Sunday
March 31st is our very own auction... truly fun and full of amazing treats and temptations for getting through April!
(If you can find someone to wait in the check-out line for you, consider attending the Girls Rock event in Portland at 2pm on 3/31) - also that weekend is Maine Festival for the Book!
