Big Morning Meeting

May 9, 2018

Waterville Valley Elementary School is hosting a Big Morning Meeting on Thursday, May 10, starting at 8 a.m.  What does that mean? It means everyone’s invited to attend – parents, siblings, friends and anyone interested in seeing our gem of an elementary school, our engaged young people and our inspiring teachers and staff.  

The theme for this month’s BMM is Character Day. Every student and staff member will dress up as a book character.  Seems only fitting since the entire school is just finishing up I Love to Read Month in April.  See some photos, below, of the students enjoying book time on Pajama Day.

In other school news, the middle school students recently returned from a week-long field trip to Washington, DC. They visited the Newseum, war memorials, the Library of Congress, Holocaust Museum, Arlington National Cemetery and the offices of New Hampshire Congresswoman Annie Kuster and Senator Maggie Hassan. 

The scheduler for Congresswoman Kuster was so impressed with Waterville Valley’s students, she wrote to school principal, Gale Adams-Davis, “I just wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for such an amazing meeting. I loved getting to talk to all of you. Everyone in the office was so impressed by your students. A member of our staff even came up to me to relay that your students straightened the couch cushions after getting up – Adult groups don’t even to that! We were amazed.  Thank you for all your wonderful questions, if there is ever anything that I can do, please do not hesitate to reach out.”  

You make our community proud!

Registration for Kindergarten will be held on Thursday, May 10, at the school (Noon Peak Road).  Students from other communities are welcomed at Waterville Valley Elementary School.  Kindergarten tuition is $5,000 per year.
