    5th grade audience listen to 6th Dimension band

    The trip gives Cider Mill students a taste of Middle School.

    5th grade audience listen to 6th Dimension band

    This week the annual tradition of Fifth graders toured Middlebrook took place. The Fifth graders enjoyed a performance from the sixth grade chorus and our advanced sixth grade stage band, The Sixth Dimension. The visiting students toured Middlebrook led by the seventh graders who will be serving as WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) leaders next year. This complex event was pulled together by Ms. Bonnie O’Brien, the school counselor for the rising sixth grade, in collaboration with colleagues from the music and counseling departments as well as our WEB leadership.

    The event is one of great excitement for the fifth graders as they learn how things will be different next year when they reach Middle School.  Students are looking forward to the increased independence of middle school – no more walking in a line. They are looking forward to switching classes and having the opportunity to meet and work with different students in every class. Gym at Middlebrook is an exciting prospect for many. There are many new games to be played and things to try – the rock-climbing wall for example.

    The most exciting thing about Middle School?  Our survey reveals the same results as last year - free seating in the cafeteria and the much better lunch food options!

    Author Jennifer Elvgren visited Cider Mill on Thursday as part of the Wilton Reads 2019, she talked about her book ‘The Whispering Town’ which is a fictionalized account of a true event that happened in the town of Gilleleje, Denmark during World War two.

    Every student heard her story about the writing and illustration process she undertook for her book. She also provided a background on the German occupation of Denmark during the second world war.

    Fifth grade students had the opportunity to join her for lunch and a further question and answer session in the Library Learning Commons. She shared with the students that her top tips for writers were to read, read, read; to spend time outside in nature for inspiration; to not be afraid of kind criticism and to have a group of friends to trust and help you through set-backs and hard times.

    Mr Hossler's Souper Bowl Challenge returned ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl showdown.

    Mr Hossler and Students

     Fifth Grade teacher Mr Hossler ran his Souper Bowl Challenge again this week. Returning for a fourth year, Cider Mill students were encouraged to bring to school a non-perishable item for the Wilton Food Pantry. The unique twist is that students use their item to vote for the team they want to see win the Super Bowl by placing it on one of two tables - one for the Patriots, and one for the Rams. In a surprising outcome, the Los Angeles Rams won the popular vote. Patriot fans disappointment was short lived, as the Pats. still managed to win the actual Superbowl. Wilton Food Pantry collected over 500 items from Cider Mill students.
