The first year of Kennebunk High School's indoor track team yielded success at the State meet. Runner Louise Holway finished second in the One Mile and third in the Two Mile, qualifying on both for the New England competition. Coach John Fulford hopes this is the first of many successes for the new team. Indoor track runners used to join the Biddeford team to compete until the number of students grew to support a Kennebunk team.
Maine author Lyn Smith and illustrator Jamie Hogan came to first grade today to share their book, A Porcupine's Promenade. Each first grader will get his or her own copy of the book to take home with their nature journals. The students spent time sketching Maine items with direction from Jamie and Lyn.
K-2 celebrated the 100th day of school today (even though, thanks to some extra snow, it's now Monday after vacation). Second graders had a PJ day and both classes together are going to read 100 books to celebrate!
