April 15

Hello Quest Families!

The Plays:
The Odyssey (Blue Group) will perform on Thursday, May 1st at 9:00.  The Greek Heroes (Red Group) will perform on Friday, May 2nd at 9:00.  All are welcome!  We will perform these plays in the cafeteria.

Ferry Beach:
We had a fantastic time visiting the shores of the Maine Coast last week as well as local adventures at the Audubon Center.  Students had a chance to explore a variety of ecosystems by getting their hands (and faces) dirty!  We are all very proud of the Quest students, who did a great job representing their school, classrooms, and themselves.  This experience helped us grow as a team and as individuals.  On Friday, we will be watching a slideshow to reflect on all of the great memories made during Ecology Week.

Missing school:
At this point, we have twelve students who will be missing days around the April break.  We also have 5 - 6 students who have been ill!  While your student is out, your student misses a complex web of whole class instruction, small group discussion, group work and independent reflection.  We are often asked for "packets of work" for time missed.  Instead, we will post the objectives of our lessons on our calendar.  Please have your student check in with us upon their return for any additional work they will need to catch up on.  We will post for the end of this week, and for the week after break.

Missing work: We have a number of students who are missing work.  We will be emailing parents over the next week or so if your student is in that situation.  You can also check PowerSchool to get this information.

Green Up Day:  
On May 2nd, Quest students will be participating in our very own Green Up Day.  This will take place from 12:40-2:15 at and around CBMS.  We will also be greening up along River Road  We are looking for parent volunteers to help us clean up for Spring.  Please email Melissa or Curtis if you are interested in joining.

Enjoy the rest of your April vacation!!
