Winter Carnival – Saturday, January 26
Tammy Carpenter and Rachel Maher, co-chairs of the Winter Carnival, talked about this fun annual indoor carnival, which is part of North Bennington’s Winterfest. The carnival features games of skill and chance plus some great STEM challenges and activities for kids of all ages. Activities are held in classrooms throughout the school, as well as in the library and gymnasium. All proceeds go directly to support classroom activities for the benefit of students. Meeting attendees discussed asking families to start setting aside and collecting items that can be sold at the White Elephant Sale.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
