Unit 6 Test Tomorrow

Here's the review Brain Frame we made today for our Unit 6 test.  Ask your child to explain one thing that's on our test to help review!


Farmer's Market at Angell 5/7

With the Spring Season in session, Chartwells is excited to host a Farmers Market for our Angell Students!

Various local farmers will be featured, which will be available free of charge to the students. Each kid will be given a mock currency to go and shop with. Through this event we hope to introduce students to:

  • Nutritious foods
  • New and different types of vegetables and herbs
  • Seasonal eating
  • The value of money, how to purchase and how to budget

This is a great opportunity for you and your children to have fun while learning about nutritious and delicious foods. The produce that your child “buys” will be yours to take home!

Angell's Farmer's Market will be held on Tuesday, May 7th, after school.  After the dismissal bell, the market will be open to students and families for about an hour.  The location will be outside (weather permitting).  I will provide more information as the event gets closer.

Please join us for this awesome opportunity!
