Picture book author, David Rottenberg, visited Pierce School on Thursday. The dancers from the Peterborough Dance Theatre performed as Mr. Rottenberg read the inspiring story of Gwendolyn the Graceful Pig; a tale of two best friends with big dreams. Gwendolyn’s hearts desire is to dance and Omar yearns to play football. The only thing standing in their way is that they are both pigs.

Facilitated by Judith Parsons, Title 1 teacher, Pierce School was awarded a CLiF Community Building Grant in November. The Childrens Literacy Foundation (CLiF) is an organization whose aim is to inspire a love of reading and writing among children throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. The intent of this grant is to build a connection for our students along with community members from within the Conval district to the joys of shared reading.

On October 25th,  Fourth Grade Teacher, Valerie Germain, Special Education Teacher, Darlene Demetrion and Title 1 Teacher, Judith Parsons had a blast sharing many games, and  techniques with parents to help them keep homework fun at home.

The evening began with free pizza and a short video about the “importance of reading with your child”. 

The Bennington Fire Department took time from their busy schedules to spend a day with Pierce School students talking about fire safety beginning with a fire drill and assembly.  Matt Hall, Deputy Chief, and his son Mason, Keith Nason, Deputy Chief, Jason Powers, Rescue Captain and Sarah Powers, EMT, showed the children different elements of the equipment they wear when they fight fires.
