Editor of the Reformer:
Many thanks to Green Street School for hosting the "Invite a Community Member to School Event," and specifically to Alison Bissonnette's second grade class for inviting me as a scientist/naturalist from Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center. It was an honor to join the school community in an animated and energetic all-school sing, and to field questions about the life cycle of plants and soils by some of the second graders in the school. What a lovely way to share your school community with the greater Brattleboro community, and for children to take their education into their own hands by choosing a guest and directing the dialog with their own inquiries.
