And what a wild time it was!
  The week began with the middle school students working to prepare for our Veterans Panel. This years panel was a very well attended event and both veterans and students alike seemed to enjoy the opportunity to share and hear stories. Link to Village Soup coverage of the event.

Tuesday was a "normal day" with some outstanding basketball games after school with Lincolnville. Well done teams!

Thursday, we came back from Veteran Day with a H1N1 clinic at Lincolnville. Those of us who stayed at AVS put together two composting containers for winter compost and the 7th grade students prepared a bed and planted the garlic for next year's crop. It was a great time out there digging, planting and cleaning up. We then had lunch, then home for the students as we had a full slate of parent conferences for the afternoon and evening. Thanks to all those parents who were able to make it in for a meeting. It is always great to share and hear about the students.

Friday brings a busy day as 8th grade discussed fund raising and started talking about where we might be heading on our class trip in the spring. Plenty of ideas.
I then got news that our Appleton Roots Garden is now listed with the Maine School Garden Network. Very good news. Check it out here.

Basketball games tonight I could not stay for the conclusions but wish teams all the best. Things were looking positive when I had to leave.

Bottle drive on Saturday so have your bottles ready.

Monday will be here soon enough!
