For the past two weekends about 10 JMG students helped (along with a number of parents); helped to build a small equipment/garden shed for the new owners of the old Bridget's Church in Vassalboro, Jim and Rachel Kilbride. One more weekend and the shingles will go on the roof and the doors will be installed.
Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Mass. created the smiley face in 1963. This symbol has become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet. Mr. Ball created World Smile Day to remind others that the smile is not just to be commercialized. The smile should be honored and that each year on the first Friday in October worldwide we should celebrate smiles and kindness. Please encourage others to do an Act of Kindness...help one person smile!
The 6th grade JMG kids were doing a team building cube activity when Mr. Haley, AOS92 Superintendent, walks into the lobby. Mr. Esposito introduced him as our Superintendent, and Mr. Haley jumped into the cube, connects with the kids and they're off and running! It was a great morning at VCS!
