The Votes are in! We will be watching A Monster Calls (PG13)

~Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother. His father has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (Liam Neeson) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

Tall Ships & Pirate Tales with Sciencetellers!

Ahoy! People don’t just build on land. They build on water, too! Set sail with us on a thrilling action-packed adventure about a crew of quirky pirates stranded on an island. With mutiny and high-tide looming, they must rescue their salty captain and find a way to construct a ship before all hope is lost … at sea! Planks, sails, rigging, rails... what else could building a pirate ship possibly take?!

All reading logs are due by this date!

This program is supported by a grant from the Monson Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
