Happy Summer Vacation!
Hopefully the garden will do well over the summer break. If anyone would like to take our tomatoes or squash over the summer, please feel free to stop by and collect any items that are ripe. There is a blue bin on the side with supplies & the green bucket will be filled with water. Use a red watering bucket to water, if you are so inclined. Many thanks!

What's Happening with DEEP?
If you would like to try camping over the summer and want to borrow a tent, the CT DEEP will loan you a tent. Make a reservation at a Connecticut State Park campground using ReserveAmerica.com and give Miss Williams a call at the State Parks office 860-424-3000 with your reservation number & we'll make it happen.
The Passport to Parks was part of the new Connecticut budget and effective January 1, 2018, parking fees will no longer be charged at Connecticut State Parks for cars with Connecticut license plates. There are great places to explore all around Connecticut. I recommend bundling up and checking out Wadsworth Falls on a sunny day in the winter. There's nothing like the beauty of the park in the winter.
What's Going On In The Computer Lab?
Our 5th graders will leave this year typing, on average, over 20 words per minute, which is faster than most people can write. We have a couple of students who are typing in the fifties and several in 40 wpm range!
What's Miss Williams Reading?
Miss Williams is reading Chris Colfer's The Land of Stories. It's a modern take on all the classic fairy tales.
If you have a Silas Bronson library card, you can use it at the Southbury Public Library and they are open on Sunday, during the school year. Their children's and teen section upstairs is a great place to read and play. You can always borrow a book there & return it to Silas Bronson, thanks to Bibliomation.
Remember, our local library loans out books, museum passes and DVDs (one week) for free. You can even get the museum pass online without going to the library.
Remember, there are free books you can borrow online from The Silas Bronson Library, without leaving your house! Get your library card number and click on the OverDrive logo to go there.
