On Monday, November 19th, the Town of Amherst came together with ARPS to celebrate Puerto Rican Heritage Day and to raise the Puerto Rican flag in front of Town Hall.  The The Daily Hampshire Gazette covered the celebration and can be accessed here: We would like to send a great thank you to all the Fort River students and teachers that participated, the chair of the select board, the chair of the Amherst school committee and to the middle school students and everyone who all took part and shared despite the weather. Thank you all!

The students of Team Bolt (grade 7) created a thunderstorm of ways to show empathy.  Their bulletin board display reminds us all how we can spread kindness.
