Bingo Night Success

By Ian Potter, age 8

Bingo Night on Thursday, October 10, had a good turn-out and everyone had a great time. All the prizes were cool. Whenever anyone called “Bingo!” all you heard from everyone else was, “Oh, come on, man!” The people who won just kept smiling. It really helped raise money for the Adams School. There will be more Bingo Nights soon and we hope even more people will come.

We’ve Got the Beat

By Taylor Evans, age 9

In band we are practicing for our Winter Concert. Our band teacher is Mr. Schubeck and he’s really great. We all love playing our instruments. We are not very good yet, but we’re working on it!

Fancy Footwork

By Acadia Evans, age 6

In Pee-Wee Soccer we practice footwork, then we scrimmage. My favorite part last week was when my teammate Grayson Frothingham did a sliding goal! It was exciting!

Give me a C!

By Gianna Codega, age 8

The Castine Cougar Cheerleaders work hard at every practice. We do a lot of stretching and then we get down to business with our dances and cheers. I hope the season is going to be great!

Apple Poems

By Caitlin Tobey, age 7

First and second grade are doing apple poems. Mine says:

Apples are hard

Apples are red and green

Apples are tasty

Follow My Voice!

By Ian Potter,

age 8

Every Monday Ben Thelwell, the Adams School Guidance Counselor, takes our class outside and we play teamwork games. In one game a person was blindfolded and we had to help that person walk around the Common without touching anything. We weren’t allowed to touch the blindfolded person either, so we called to him and he followed our voice. He had to trust us and we had to keep him safe. I think everyone learned how to work as a team.
