From the student’s mouth Each Month the newsletter team will ask a question to students in various grades to get their thoughts on a topic or question. This month we asked 1st, 7th, and 9th graders the fol- lowing question: “What were you most excited to come back to school for”? See what the students’ had to say Summer School News Eighteen students signed up to take summer school classes at Litch- field School for a period of six weeks, five days per week. Classes began at 8:30 a.m. and ended at 12:00 noon from June 11 to July 20. The theme for the summer was Dr. Suess. The focus was on reading and math skills. Erma Sadler taught the classes with the assistance of Mariah Sekutera and Emily Mostek. The students enjoyed comput- er time each day. Bean Bag Math, bowling, horseshoe, and Bingo were some of the games using math skills. The Trotters Green House & Learning Center gave materials and assistance to the summer students to do plantings in the large pots in the Litchfield downtown area. Pup- pets were used to assist in reading activities. Students made puppets, helped with writing a script, and presented a puppet show on July 18 for parents, friends, and family.
