This week has been a whirlwind of activity at McKelvie and all around the district. This is the time of year I find it a challenge to keep up with everything! Between our Spring Concert, Band Info Night, Visiting Author Lynda Hunt, and Grandparent's Day, there was certainly a lot to do! As a result of increased activity and expectations, it's typical for kids to be excited and anxiety to increase. Know that we are aware of this and are working hard to maintain a calm, consistent, and normal (as can be expected) routine for the school. With June 15th being our last day, it will be here before we know it!
World Language Poster Contest
Chelsea Ongioco, a 5th grader at McKelvie School has won the state poster contest sponsored by the New Hampshire Association of World Language Teachers. She competed against 4th, 5th, and 6th graders throughout the state of New Hampshire and won $50.00. Congratulations to Chelsea! Please see the photo of Chelsea with her award winning poster.
