Going to the Circus

The 21st After School Program students went to the Circus on Friday! The Shriners gave the group free tickets to the show and the program provided a snack for all. The students had so much fun! The group also went to the Tri Community recycling and sanitary landfill in Fort Fairfield on Thursday where students earned money for the program by picking up trash from the grounds. Students from the middle school Homework Haven progam also went to help! Everyone did such a great job! It was nice to see them take on a community project with big smiles on their faces and showing a great deal of enthusiasm! An ice cream sundae party will be held later this month to celebrate their hard work.

Congratulations to Daniel Roy who received his Eagle Scout Award on Saturday, May 4. His project involved renovating a long forgotten cemetary in Wade known as the Randall Cemetary. The troop gifted Daniel with an enrollment in the National Eagle Scout Association. He presented father and mother pins to his parents and a mentor pin to Stacy Skinner. Great accomplishment, Daniel!

Italy is now just a memory for the nineteen students who traveled over April vacation. The weather during the trip was perfect and provided many opportunities for special photos. The few shared here will give you an idea of the sights we saw and the experiences we had. After landing in Milan, we traveled on to Verona to view Juliet's balcony, part of the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet. We had a special treat when singing groups gathered in a plaza close to St. Mark's Square. Singing Group #2 Then it was on to Venice to see the canals, the gondolas and of course the gondoliers. We visited the famous Murano glass makers and St. Mark's Square. Then we traveled on to Florence, enjoying the beautiful Tuscany countryside with miles of vineyards, olive trees and lush farmland. Walking through Florence was like walking through an outside museum. We saw statues, fountains, and beautiful cathedrals. Pisa came next with the Piazza dei Miracoli, and of course the leaning tower. Listen to this demonstration of the acoustics in the Baptistry! On the way to Rome, we visited Assissi, the home of St. Francis. As we got to Rome, we had time to visit the beautiful Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the magnificent Pantheon, and finally Navona Square, before going to dinner. We are in the 'Caput mundi' and we cannot believe it! The next day, we really are in another country: the Vatican City. The visit begins with the Vatican Museums. The most incredible one is the Sistine Chapel. The St. Peter Basilica is not less impressive; the big dome, the fine statues and the square with all of the columns around...and the window where the Pope has his speech every Sunday. Then, on to the Colosseum and a walk through the Fori Imperiali, the ancient city of Rome. And then it is time to say "Arrivederci Roma" which means "see you again" because of course we all threw our coins in the Trevi Fountain!
