National Anthem at Timber Rattler Game

Forty-two Lincoln, Parkview, Readfield, and Sugar Bush students sang the National Anthem at the Timber Rattler game. Thank you for representing the New London School District with great pride!


Letters to Vietnam Veterans on Honor Flight
Readfield and Sugar Bush Elementary Students
Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Bressler's students wrote notes to two Vietnam Veterans on an Old Glory Honor Flight. Veterans receive letters, cards, pictures, etc., from family and friends on their flight home. The students didn't personally know the two veterans, but they learned that neither veteran had any family to receive mail from on their flight home.  The students enjoyed taking patriotic pictures and writing kind words to the veterans to thank them for their service.

Parkview kindergartners competed in a Poppy Art Contest. The American Legion Auxiliary and Post 263 veteran members choose their favorite pieces of artwork. Congratulations to these winners and thanks to all the students who participated!
