CHERRYFIELD, ME — Here is the second group of EdGE Site Coordinator Everett Carroll’s many insightful photos of EdGE students at Harrington Elementary.

Youth participated in physical activities, worked with Discovery Museum science experiment kits, made stories with petroglyphs, painted their nails on Spa Day, created Army Man Launchers, baked creative dragon eyes, made milkshakes, and cooked. On the final day the “wonderful year,” the students had a pizza party.

Everett said, “The end of the year at Harrington Elementary EdGE finished strong! Youth participated in many physical activities and also worked with science experiments kits provided by the Discovery Museum. Other activities included making their own stories with petroglyphs, painting their nails in Spa Day, creating their own Army Man Launchers, baking off their very creative dragon eyes, making their own milkshakes, cooking, and a pizza party on the final day of program. It was a wonderful year,” said Everett.
Everett Carroll is an EdGE Site Coordinator. EdGE Afterschool Programs, adjusted to new Covid-19 and school protocols, are underway. Everett sent this update on his experience teaching yoga to Pre-K to 6th graders at Milbridge Elementary School.
MILBRIDGE, ME — I have been working at the Milbridge Elementary School teaching yoga to kids Pre-K to 6th grade. They absolutely love it. The teachers are big fans. Sometimes they join in. Yoga is an excellent opportunity for the kids to work hard, get physical exercise, and reflect and unwind. Yoga is also a chance for “mask free” breaks. The kids have their own safe space on the mats.
I clean and wipe down all yoga mats between grades.
When asked what their favorite class is, almost all students said yoga. It has been a great joy and the kids have loved having me there.
