Schools across Maine and New Hampshire have been moving and learning outdoors during the WinterKids Winter Games. The Games are encouraging teachers to get kids (and their families!) away from screens and outside, whether the students are in school, learning through a hybrid model, or fully remote learning!
The children just wrapped up week 3 of the Winter Games, focused on family engagement and social/community service. Participating teachers who submitted photos and videos of their favorite moment of the week were entered to win prizes, and we’re proud to announce our winners!
