Dear McKelvie Families ~
A BIG thank you to everyone who participated in our Science Fair today. It was terrific to see so many families stop by and support our young science minds! We are now in the home stretch - the end is near. It is my hope that patience and perseverance are a mainstay during our last two weeks. Below are the notes for this week:

Annual Friends of Aine Kid’s Try-athlon
The 5th Annual Friends of Aine Kid’s Try-athlon will be be held on Sunday, August 13, 2017. The only event of its kind in the area, the kid’s try-athlon is designed specifically for children ages 4-15 years, in memory of Aine Phillips, who was a student at Riddle Brook School. Beginning at the Bedford town pool, participants ages 4-10 years will swim 25 yards, run 1/2 mile and bike 1 mile. Older participants ages 11-15 will swim 50 yards, run 1 mile and bike 2 miles. We are pleased to announce that this year Millennium Running will be our event partner. At the finish line, families are invited to enjoy music, jump roping, an obstacle course, water games, face painting, concessions, raffle prizes and much more! Friends of Aine is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. All proceeds from this event go toward support for grieving children.
