The 2nd graders at Lyman Elementary participated in a Town Project. The students learned about economics by studying topics such as goods vs. services, exchanging money, scarcity, and making good economic choices. As a final project, they each got the opportunity to create their own business. They produced their own handmade goods and sold their items or services to their second grade peers. Some businesses included a paper airplane store, a keychain store, and a Pokemon card store!
LES Fifth graders Lucas Barrigar, Abbigale TwoHearts-Decesare, Lawrence McCusker, and Elijah Tarbox participated in a field trip to Massabesic Middle School to meet the principal, social workers, nurse, and more! The students also joined a student-led tour of MMS to familiarize themselves for next year.

Students at AES put their egg packages to the test! Packages were designed and created out of recyclable materials during our family STEM night. While outside enjoying an ice cream party for reaching a model mustang ticket schoolwide goal, student designed packages were thrown off the roof while staff opened them below. We had many designs that survived the fall!
Many thanks to our AES community and staff members for the donated recyclable materials to help make our family STEM night a success! We had the largest turnout ever, and we enjoyed welcoming our families into our community school again. The children enjoyed designing & creating a package to house their egg for our egg drop, took a chance at the 'guesstimation station', chose a book from our free book table, and shopped at our evening book fair!

Students in Mrs. Harmon’s high school advisory have been working on a community service project. They collected, sorted by grade level, loaded/unloaded, and delivered over 500 books to Shapleigh Memorial School under the book drive titled, "Our Shared Shelf." In addition, several students recorded themselves reading books to send down to the elementary schools as a read along. All of the volunteers were excited about contributing to and strengthening our community through literacy! The goal is to continue to collect gently used books to distribute to all of the elementary schools in our district!
Lyman Elementary School students and their families gathered in the gym on April 27th to prepare for the annual Egg Drop! This challenge is where students create a package from recycled materials that will protect one uncooked egg when dropped from the school's roof! It was a family afair for the Gagnon family with mom and dad helping Cael, Emma, and Liam create what they hope will be a winner! Harper Duross worked hard on her package and, Brady Mitchell and friend had dad's help with their creation. Brady said "You have to have the egg at the top with a lot of padding at the bottom to protect it from the fall." Here's wishing all participants good luck with the drop!
Lyman Elementary students watched as their egg containers were dropped from the roof to test if they would keep the egg safe. We dropped over 150 very creative containers. Thank you to all who participated in this fun event.
Kiwi the Blender Bike Tour de 57 made its first stop at Lyman Elementary School today! Staff made delicious and healthy smoothies and burned a few calories while they were at it! Be on the look out - coming to your school next!
