Wilkins School students had a whale of a time on March 22 as “The Whalemobile” came for a visit. The Whalemobile is a life-sized inflatable whale named Nile, modeled after a real humpback whale that can be seen off the coast of Massachusetts. The inflatable whale was set up in the Wilkins School gymnasium, with classes visiting it throughout the day. Students could even go inside the inflatable structure to get a look at what a whale’s interior would look like! Students enjoyed getting up close to Nile, going inside, and learning about whales during their time with the Whalemobile.

Seventh graders at the O'Donnell Middle School had their eggs from Casey Farm in Rhode Island delivered on March 14. Students in Mrs. Benitez's TLC class got a special presentation from Farmer Tom who introduced them to the Dominique and Rhode Island Red chickens that will be hatching in just 21 days (and even brought a live chicken for the presentation)! Throughout the next few weeks all seventh grade students will be learning about the genetics and growth and development of these organisms while the eggs are stored in an incubator getting ready to hatch!

Two members of the ELPAC (English Learner Parent Advisory Council), Mrs. Previatti and Mrs. De Souza, recently came as guest readers to read classic folktales in Portuguese for March Book Madness at the Wilkins School. Our native Portuguese speakers loved hearing these stories in their home language and interpreting for their friends. Our native English speakers also appreciated hearing stories in another language, understanding how it must feel to learn a second language. This was a great literacy, multicultural and multilingual experience for all!
