More Crafts at the Hopkinton Public Library

As part of the library's "Dig into Reading" summer theme, on August 12th, teachers Gretchen Stephan and Beth Newman from Whitehall Farm Studios came in to teach those in attendance about patterns in nature. The particular pattern that this activity focused on was spirals. One animal that fits the spiral pattern is a snail, which tied into the "Dig into Reading" motif. And to illustrate to those in attendance about the spiral pattern of a snail, the children made their own snails out of clay by rolling them out and then coiling them into a snail-like shape. They also had a chance to draw and color in their own spiral pattern inside an outline of a snail.

Principal Coffee Held at Center School

As way of introducing herself to both parents and students, new Center School Principal Lauren Dubeau held a meet and greet coffee on August 14th. The forum provided an informal way for both children attending Center School this fall and their parents to be able with talk to her one-on-one.

Not only was the coffee an opportunity for parents to meet Dubeau, but it also provided them with a chance to address any expectations, concerns, or ideas by writing them on a sticky note and posting them up on a bulletin board. It also gave children some time to work on their coloring skills. Overall, parents say that they are very impressed with Dubeau.

Watch the HCAM News video to hear more.
