Our first Mini-Relay for Life was a huge success, and we would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this event possible.  Due to your thoughtfulness and generosity, we were able to raise over $3,200 for the American Cancer Society.  This money will be presented to the A.C.S., in Troy School’s name, and Hilary Nettleton’s memory, at the Relay for Life to be held at MRHS on June 3rd and 4th. 
    We dedicated the memorial out by the flag pole to Hilary before the start of our relay, and her family expressed gratitude for the love and support they have been shown these past few months.  Thank you to everyone who donated food items, money, or time and sweat equity both that day and in the days beforehand.  We are proud to be part of such a great community.

The halls are brimming with excitement as the weather warms up and the school year winds down.  We are just a few weeks away from the final bell, but there are still a lot of activities going on over here at Troy School.  The After School program is working alongside the UNH Cooperative Extension to revive the turnaround garden on the black top, students in the After School’s 4-H program have planted a vegetable garden on the front lawn, and there are worms working hard at composting outside of the kitchen door.

The students and staff of Troy School would like to thank everyone who donated to our Hilary Nettleton Memorial.  We dedicated the memorial at the beginning of our Mini-Relay for life on Saturday, May 14th, and our staff and students are very grateful for the support you have shown both us, and Hilary’s family during this time.

The preschool year is winding down.  Warmer days mean more outdoor play for the children.  The preschool students always enjoy the backyard playground.  They will also be digging in the soil and planting seeds.  Vegetation will be discussed as well as the stages of growth.  The children are planting flowers in the preschool Friendship Garden.  This will tie in with this month's theme of "The Meaning of Friendship."
    The children are finishing up their school year study of the letter sounds.  The joy of reading continues to be a priority both at school and home.
A special "Move Up" day is scheduled for June 9th at 5 PM.  The preschool students will 'move up" to the next grade level.  Families are invited to be a part of this special day.  A summer style barbecue will follow, to celebrate the accomplishments of the preschool year.

We are in the final stretch, and it’s hard to imagine that in a little more than seven weeks we will be saying goodbye to another school year.  Along with mayflies, bicycles and sunny days, May brings Teacher Appreciation week.  We’d like to take a moment to thank all the teachers at Troy School for the tireless dedication they give to all the students in their care.  Our school wouldn’t be the great place it is without you all.

On Friday May 6th, the MRHS Band will be holding another activity night for students in grades 4-6th.  The first one was jam-packed full of fun, and this will be the last one of the year.  Doors open at 6:30 pm, and there is a $5 admission charge.  There will be drinks and beverages available for purchase and all proceeds go to the MRHS Band.  Parents must sign their children in, and out at 9:00 when the doors close.

The students are busy exploring, creating, singing, experimenting, and listening as they learn and grow.  Oh, what fun to be a three and four year old preschool student! The children are seeing that many changes occur during the season of spring.  They watched in amazement as larva transformed into a butterfly.  They will visit the new born animals at East Hill Farm and perhaps collect an egg from the chicken coop.  A study of farm animal babies will take place in the classroom.  The students will delight in the books by author and illustrator, Marc Brown.  He is best known for his ARTHUR series, everyone's favorite aardvark.  The Arthur books are about situations that children often face. This will lead to a unit on 'stranger danger' and how the police and ambulance, etc. are here to help us when an emergency occurs.  A town police officer may even pay a visit to the preschoolers.
