**There are two exciting new events at for our picnic this year. Our new music teacher Mr. Brandon Miller will be providing entertainment with his band named “Gauss.” This six member band has performed at The Cactus Club and Club Garibaldi and been featured on 91.7 WMSE. Stop by to listen to their post rock jams and to meet Mr. Brandon Miller. “Thank you for the opportunity to welcome the students back to school! We’ll be playing a semi-acoustic set, so it’ll be quieter than usual. Expect catchy melodies, jazzy pop songs and a wide variety of instruments. See you soon!”
**Last year our adolescent students constructed a 12′ rowing/sailing dingy with the guidance of All Hands Boatworks. It really was a fabulous project lasting the whole academic year. The skiff was launched at South Shore Beach in June and our students were able to test its sea-worthiness. It was a bunch of fun. We would like to auction this little dory to fund future adolescent building projects. Please support our “hands-on” workshops by bidding on this super cute boat. You will have the opportunity to bid on this sailboat at the picnic. The opening bid will be $2000.
Fernwood PTO will provide hot dogs, plates, utensils, and napkins.
Please bring a dish to pass by last name as assigned below:
A-D Veggies (Cut-up) N-R Salads
E-I Bag of Chips S-V Case of water or Juice Boxes
J-M Dessert W-Z Fruit (Cut-up)
