I thought you might enjoy watching the video that our sweet, adorable kids put together, (with a bit of help from Lizzie), for the last day of school again. I will definitely take some of their suggestions for how to spend my retirement under advisement. Dancing with a coconut skirt-I am not quite sure if I am up for that one!
Thanks to all of you and your children for a wonderful year. It was the perfect way to end my time at Foote. I plan to remain involved at Foote, and look forward to watching your children as they learn and grow.
Much love and gratitude,

We had the most beautiful day for Killam’s Point ever! The sun was shining, a light breeze was blowing, the sailboats were on the water, and the view was breathtaking. The children loved exploring the shoreline collecting jelly fish and crabs, skipping rocks, building in the sand, climbing on the rocks, playing soccer, singing, putting on a dance show the list goes on and on and on. Enjoy the pictures and be sure to have your child share their Killam’s Point stories with you.
The bright, sunny day matched the high spirits of all of the people who came to celebrate May Day at Foote School this year. The children were so excited to share their dances with all of you. It is my favorite special event day of the year, and I hope you enjoyed seeing the progression of children through all of the grades as much as I did.
Enjoy some of our May Day memories.

It was a picture perfect day for our trip to Mystic Seaport, and the children made the most of it!
Many thanks to our chaperones who helped to make our trip so memorable. Here are just a few pictures that can be conversation starters with your child. I am sure they will be delighted to share some of their adventures with you.

Today two more fourth grade picture book readers came to visit. They were the brother of two very proud sisters in our class.
The overcast weather did not get in the way of a terrific 2015 Field Day. We had fierce competition, lots of laughter, good sportsmanship and fun! We had the thrill of cheering for three of our children who ran in the final relay, along with lots of our friends from other classrooms. Field Day is a long standing tradition at Foote and we congratulate all of the children on their enthusiastic participation and generous good sportsmanship.

Today three more inspired fourth grade authors came to share their picture books with us. We heard a story about a fledgling bluebird leaving the nest, a soccer player who helps his team to victory, and some “candy lovers” who learn a valuable lesson about vegetables. Be sure and ask your child to tell you all about the stories. I wonder which book was their favorite?
Today we went to the art room for a special project. Using natural objects like pine cones, leaves, evergreen boughs, corn husks and potato stamps we decorated our Native American shirts. As the pictures below testify to, “a great time was had by all.” There was lots of paint, creativity, enthusiasm and smiles as each child designed their very own shirt. We can’t wait to show them to you at our Native American Open House of May 1st!
