Kids’ Voice I: Eleanor T. from 3F

Mrs. Franklin, our teacher, said “If you can find out a few uses for bison, you could have a prize and bonus points on Monday.” I was thinking, “Yes! I am totally going to do this!” In Social Studies we are learning about Native Americans because we are talking about Massachusetts and how it first started.

When I got home that day I ran to the computer. Mom asked, “What are you doing, Eleanor?” I exclaimed, “I want to learn more about bison and Mrs. Franklin also said I could get bonus points!” I went to Google and typed in uses for bison and was excited to find a website that was very useful. You should check it out – the picture of the bison poops and everything and there are lots of facts to learn.

I copied as many facts as I could find on my paper and then I had a great idea! I would make a Powerpoint! We have been doing Powerpoints in Media with Mrs. Diaz so I knew exactly what I needed to do. Click here to see my presentation!

Winter Clothing Give Away!


This past month, Ruggles Lane School participated in Socktober, an initiative started by 10 year old Kid President to “make the world more awesome!” We were blown away by the generosity of our community with donations of new and gently used winter clothing flooding our main hallway! We even had a little fun along the way with two Crazy Sock Days to rally the spirit of our community 🙂

Before donating the clothing to a community organization, we would like to open a ‘store’ to local residents where all the clothing is free.

The store will be open Wednesday through Thursday, November 19th-20th, from 5:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m., in the Ruggles Lane School Cafeteria. Anyone from the area is welcome so please help us to spread the word!
