at Sanborn Regional High School last Thursday evening. The combined Spring
Concert featured multiple selections by both sections. The elementary
bands are led by Nicole Bartlett, Matt Bradd, Nancy Fiske, and Sarah
Kaufman. Well-done, musicians!
Get ready for a wonderful summer of fun and reading!
This summer students at the Bakie School will be participating in a new and exciting Bakie Bingo reading incentive. Each challenge will include either a reading or writing activity that is short, fun and keeps the literacy skills sharpened. With each Bingo that is completed, students will add their names to a drawing for a super great prize. The more Bingos completed, the more chances to win! One winner from each grade, 1-5, will win a $15 gift certificate to Water Street Bookstore in Exeter. In addition, the lucky winners and a parent will be driven to the bookstore in style in a limousine to spend their prize money! Happy summer reading and have fun with Bakie Bingo! Special thanks to our friends at Water Street Bookstore for their generous donations. Please say thank you if you visit this summer!

Grade Four continues with weaving and sewing. They finished their "B" is for Bakie community weaving project which is now being proudly displayed in the front hallway. Each student used the floor loom, thanks to weaver Jill Hunter, to weave their own section, and then sewed a ribbon and button on it with their signature. Many of them are now creating pillows, bags, teddy bears, bean bags and all kinds of fun
things. They love sewing!
