Today, our 4th and 5th grade girls had lunch with Society of Women in Engineering representatives, Carolyn Begnoche from UTC and Carol Coppa from Eversource. We learned about all the different engineering fields and the important role women can play in this career field. Engineering is everywhere!
First graders in Mrs. Paole’s class planted Swiss chard and leeks today. Their seeds probably wont be sprouted before the school year ends but as 2nd graders they can test the fruits of their labor.
