WNPTO Thanks our Hometown Heroes!

WNPTO Thanks Our Hometown Heroes

Let’s thank our hometown heroes for all they are doing during this unprecendented time. For each day of the week, there is a suggested community member to thank. Homemade cards and pictures are the best and are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face! Thank you for your continued support!

Page Staff Appreciation Request

Our wonderful Page Staff have been working very hard to bring us remote learning and keep the year rolling amidst the challenges at hand. They miss our kids as much as we miss them! We will be creating a digital gift for them to enjoy during this time. It’s one way that we can say “thank you!”

If you would like to participate, here’s how it will work:

Send in a still image (not video) of your kids/ family in whatever pose suits you.

Feel free to make and hold a sign that says “thank you Page staff” or “we miss you,” but please avoid using specific names of teachers and staff members. This is a group gift and will be sent to all of the staff at Page (and will be made available to you as well).

If you do not want the photo of your children or family shared publicly, please do not send one in, but consider making a gratitude sign and taking a photo of  the sign ONLY (no faces!).

As long as we are kind and inclusive, it works! No formula here, just fun!

Send submissions to Peter Choma: peterkchoma@yahoo.com and put “Page Thank You Picture” in the subject line so that nobody’s email gets lost!

Drive-By Egg Hunt!

Join us for a drive-by egg hunt on Sunday, April 12th from 9am-6pm. Create giant eggs with whatever materials you have at home and put them on display in your windows or yard! Drive around on Sunday and see how many you can spot, from a socially safe distance, of course!

Mindfulness Week!

WNPTO’s Mindful Activities Week

Join us this week as we try different mindfulness activities at home!

Scavenger Hunt Fun!

Join us for scavenger hunts this week! Great activities to complete inside or outside to keep your children engaged!

 

BOKS at home!

The BOKS program hopes you are all healthy both physically and mentally in these uncertain, and for some, difficult times. At BOKS they are handling this the only way they know how, and that’s to get up and get moving during the day. In an effort to help families do the same, they have created a custom landing page called BOKS AT HOME. https://www.bokskids.org/boks-at-home/

Here you will find FREE downloadable PDFs filled with games, activities, crafts, yoga, and bursts. They are also offering Facebook Lives every weekday at 12pm EST. If you can’t join a class, they host all of their classes on their YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialBOKS/featured

National Invention Convention Contenders

Congratulations to our very own fifth graders Owen McDonald and Jackson Miller who will be representing not only the Page School, but the states of Massachusetts and New Hampshire at the National Invention Convention in Michigan at the end of May. The boys earned this prestigious honor by winning the Best in Grade Award for their invention called The Thermosleeve at the New Hampshire Regional Invention Convention on March 31st held at SNHU. The boys’ invention is designed to help athletes play their best when the weather is cold. The padded sleeve sports a USB heating pad that allows an athlete to keep his or her throwing arm warm while waiting to play. The boys met weekly during the school day throughout the second term as part of their specials electives to develop The Thermosleeve.

Jackson and Owen will be joining 500 of the best young inventors in the country at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan from May 28 – 30 at the National Invention Convention.  The cost for registration, airfare, and hotels will cost over $2000 per family.

If you would like to help get our talented and deserving boys to Michigan, you can donate on the form below.  Please reference Young Inventors in the message area.
