Winter Fun at Recess

Students donned their snow gear for our first “playable” snowfall of the year.  Remember to pack snow pants and boots to play in the snow.


Mia Hoffman, Maggie McCullough, Maggie St. Jean, Greta Maguire, Maya Luizzi, Ella Poisson, Ben Tofur, and Scarlett Goff gather around their creation during the second and fourth-grade recess.
