RSU34 schools are closed today, February 13, 2019.
No school today, January 30!
Today was day 1 of the BOKS (Building Our Kids’ Success) program at Viola Rand School. Per their website, “BOKS is a free physical activity program that improves our children physically, mentally, and socially by strengthening their minds and bodies through movement.” University of Maine students led by Sam Lenson are running this program for our students. It was a lot of fun for the kids involved!
There will be an after school ice skating trip to the Alfond Arena on Friday, January 18th from 3:30-4:30. Students will be bussed from the school but will need to be picked up by parents at the ice rink at 4:30
Starting on January 29th, Sam Lenson, a University of Maine graduate student will be working with staff to bring an exciting before school activity program to Viola Rand School students. Boks will run every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning beginning at 7:20 AM. The school food service breakfast will be offered as a bag on the go breakfast for students to take to class with them on these days. The program will run 3 days per week until March 7th. A typical BOKS class starts with a fun warm-up game or movement drill, then a running activity, relay race, obstacle course and strength movements. A fun game follows, concluding with a cool down and a BOKS bit, which is a nutrition component of the program. Please watch for a registration letter and form to come home with your child! Or find copies in the documents section of the school web site.
