Math League

 Math League will begin on Friday, December 2nd for interested  Grades 3, 4, and 5 students.  This invitation is open to students who want to have a FUN BUT SERIOUS MATH ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITY.  Math League is a great way to get students excited about Math.  Interest is more important than aptitude.  Essentially, we want to use the fun and good elements that make sports exciting and interesting for kids and apply those same principles to a Math League.  That is, kids work hard and enjoy solving complex multi-step math problems when presented in a fun environment. Individual improvement, not competition, will be stressed.  This year, we will be using Sign-Up Genius for our Math League volunteers.  Please see the attached sign - up grade level  letters with information and links for volunteering.

Just A Reminder 

November 23rd early release will be 12:00 noon.

November 24th and 25th Thanksgiving break.

 

Hale Reservation

Please read the message below from Eric Arnold, the Executive Director at Hale

As Thanksgiving approaches, Hale is excited to offer a new event to local families: our self-guided Opt Outside Scavenger Hunt, in partnership with REI. I’m hoping you’ll help us get word out at Sheehan School about this fun way to #OptOutside.

 

On Friday, November 25, seven geocaches will be hidden among Hale’s 1,137 acres. Geocaches are small boxes that contain information or objects. They’re hidden and known only by their geographic coordinates, which can be entered into a GPS device or smartphone. 

 

Participants will be encouraged to park at Cat Rock, where they’ll pick up a map, instructions, and learn the coordinates of the geocaches. As they find each cache, they’ll place a sticker on their map, will learn about natural features in the area, and can post photographs of their adventure on Instagram.

 

Even better? There’s a prize. For every cache a participant finds, she or he will receive one entry in a drawing for a Membership Beach Session Bundle, valued at $520. Membership Beach families enjoy swimming lessons, arts and crafts, boating, fishing, archery, cookouts, and more.

 

If this sounds like something your students and their families would be interested in, would you mind helping us spread the word about this event? If so, please let Greg Freed know (gfreed@halereservation.org) and he will be happy to provide you with marketing materials.

 

Thank you in advance for your support. We hope you’ll #OptOutside at Hale on November 25, and that we see you many times before and after the holidays.

 

Sincerely,

Eric Arnold
