Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders
“In 2005, Team Haverhill was founded to make Haverhill a better place to live, learn, work and play. We’ve dreamed big and accomplished a lot. To celebrate our success we’re going to do what we do best – help build up our community.
In recognition of our tenth year of service, Team Haverhill is sponsoring ten “mini-projects”– ways we can make a difference in our community with a little bit of time (one day or less) and a little bit of money ($150 or less).” (from: http://teamhaverhill.org/projects/community/10-for-10-10-small-projects-for-2015/)
Mrs Perry’s first grade class was one of the winning proposals. It was titled “Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders” which focused on reaching out to our community leaders through letter writing to share with them the class’s favorite children’s books and to find out what their favorite book was when they were in first grade. Through the grant, they were able to purchase the community leaders’ favorite children’s books and donate them in their honor to the Haverhill Public Library. The community leaders were then invited to Mrs. Perry’s class to hear summaries prepared and presented by the students. Superintendent Jim Scully also donated two books to the class, one of which he then read aloud to the students-Dragons love Tacos by Ido Turgeman. The students LOVED it!
Students in Mrs. Perry’s first grade, along with our PTO president Heather Ray, planted flowers outside of the school to honor Earth Day. Members of our Discovery Club also jumped into action cleaning out any trash left behind once the record snowfall finally melted! Great job making our school look beautiful!

Wearing of the Green!
Green was the color of the day at Tilton School on Tuesday, March 17th. Ms. Conway entertained the students with her guitar and beautiful singing. She told stories of leprechauns and Ireland. Mrs. Mackay and Mrs. Hickey seemed to be in competition with each other to see who had the craziest St. Patrick’s outfit!

100th Day Canned Food Drive a Success!
Our Tilton Tigers have risen to the occasion once again! Each grade level was challenged to bring in 100 canned goods to support the All Saints Food Pantry as a way to celebrate our 100th day of school. Not only did every grade level meet that challenge, but exceeded that challenge! Tilton School was able to collect 735 canned goods! Many thanks to our morning Discover Club students for counting all the donations and the afternoon Discovery Club students for packing them up and getting them ready for delivery!
