Mrs. Whipple's 4th grade class can down today to share their Cape Elizabeth history books with us. First graders had to record 3 facts they learned in their Cape 250 journals. The kids had a great time together, which was heartwarming to watch!

The chime was tinging
And he could not stop
So he said to his self
Stop itSo he did
The Mario world is like the world
It has grass
It even has mountains
Cloud and fire
But there is a difference...
Tried to walk
From Ireland to California
When he got there
He was a billion years old
That something is Skylar
I love bananas too
I am a Minion

Late last week I spread out a whole bunch of books that are "good fit" books for first graders for the kids to browse through as they all arrived in the morning. Little did I know that this is what would happen. I had to capture it all for you. And the sound is REAL and not edited...it was really that quiet!

Today we went to see the 4th graders present their physical theatre presentation for Cape 250. Scroll down for fun facts about Cape Elizabeth!
There have been over 100 shipwrecks off of Cape Elizabeth?
Portland Head Light lighthouse is 101 feet tall?
The Little League started in Maine in 1951, and that same year the Cape Elizabeth little league team went to the Little League World Series!
The name Kettle Cove name comes from The Kettle Restaurant that used to be on the property.
In the1950s, Cape was called the "Garden of Maine" because there were so many farms.
Kids were in charge of the stove to keep the school warm in the old days. What could go wrong???
In the old days, teachers would live with families for a month, then stay with another family for a month. Can I bring my pugs?
Native Americans were here first (hopefully you knew that one already).
Cape is named after Queen Elizabeth of Bohemia .
A ghost on Richmond Island protects a legendary buried treasure!
