Posted on: April 24th, 2017 by webmaster

BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) is a volunteer-run, fun, before-school physical activity program for kids. Each session lasts 6 weeks and meets 2 days per week for 45 minutes. Some of the activities include running, jumping, hopping, hula hooping, learning new skills and so much more!

BOKS will run every Tuesday and Thursday morning OUTSIDE on the back playground from 8:00 – 8:45 a.m. The 6 week fall session starts on Tuesday, May 2nd and ends on Thursday, June 8th. Complete one Registration Form for each child and submit with a check for $25 (per child) made out to Haynes Organization of Parents (HOP) by Friday, April 28th.  Scholarships are available. Forms can be returned directly to the BOKS mailbox at the front desk. Approximately 40 children may participate in the session, and the participants will be chosen via lottery (if necessary). Parents will be responsible for transporting their children to school. Children who attend SED are eligible to enroll and participate. Please note, that sessions may be cancelled or moved inside due to inclement weather. We will try our best to give as much notice of cancellation as possible. This will be done via email.

We hope that you will share our enthusiasm for this program and you will, in turn, see a positive impact on your children. Please contact us with any questions, or you can check out the BOKS website. We are asking each family to volunteer to help out with the program one morning per session – either on a Tuesday or Thursday. A Sign Up Genius will be sent out to all families enrolled. Please contact us if this is a hardship for your family.   Many hands make light work!

Thanks!

plantsOn October 18, Massachusetts Horticultural Society Plantmobil program visited Fourth Grade. The students reviewed the parts of the plants and their functions (roots, stem, leaves, flower), then dissected their own alstromeria flowers to locate each part. Looking inside the flowers, the students found ova, and connected the flower to the life cycle of the plant. Finally, the students worked in groups to examine terraria filled with plants from different habitats (tropical, desert, wetland, forest) to describe the adaptations of plants to each environment.
