On Monday our class made eco-bottles.  It was three bottles taped together.  One bottle {bottle A}  has dirt and leaves like what we have in the forest. There are crickets and worms as animals.  Then we have bottle B, it has nothing in it.  Bottle C, it has rocks and water with some water plants. We have two fish and one snail in there as well. It represents symbiosis, a relationship where at lest one organism is benefiting. They provide nutrients for one another and the plants provide oxygen.

The sixth grade went apple picking at Hidden Farms (Grape's orchard) for our apple pie bake sale on Oct. 8th at the Grafton post office from 10-2 pm. We picked honey crisps which are a favorite for most of the class. We ate a lot of apples!  We picked over 20 bags of apples! We want to thank the Grape family for allowing us to pick at their orchard.

Purpose

We created a vision for our class on our first day. We did this so that we will have confidence in ourselves and have trust in each other. We believe this will make our classroom a better place and enable us to focus and learn.

Our vision: To learn we need to challenge ourselves to do our best at trusting and respecting each other.

Our mission: Pay attention to what you are doing and saying and communicate when our vision is threatened.

During our trip to Keewaydin we had tons of fun.  In this photo one of the counselors was telling us a story about a Native American named Gustave. We ate brownies while he told us this wonderful story among Vermont's beautiful mountains.

On Thursday, we had choices about what activity we wanted to take part in. We were allowed to fish at recreational time. Throughout the week we did a lot of cool things like night walks, town meeting simulations, rock climbing, gardening and canoeing. At night time our cabin counselors read to us until we fell asleep. We also had jobs like hopper, dish washing, composting, recycling, wood carrying, sweeping, weather watching and prepping the tables.

We feel lucky that we were able to go on such an amazing trip. We are proud that we raised all that money. It was good to make new friends but it was sad to leave them behind.
