Vineyard Smiles will be here on October 27 & 28.
When you register your child will receive a FULL DENTAL EXAM including an oral health screening, cleaning and fluoride treatment, oral hygiene instruction, and as needed they will receive x-rays, sealants and fillings.
PLEASE NOTE: you need to re-register your child every school year. And, please be sure that your child is seeing only one dentist – either a private dentist or Vineyard Smiles. Switching between two dentists may cause problems for you with your insurance company.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Vineyard Smiles at 508-696-0020 ext. 14

Each month, our students have the opportunity to compete in our after-school Engineering Challenge competition.
The goals of the Challenge include providing students an opportunity to:
- experience authentically and firsthand the process of engineering as they work as engineers to complete a design challenge
- work as a group to collaborate and communicate to achieve a common goal
- compete as an academic team in a different type of competition than our yearly science fair, thus expanding the opportunities for students to gain recognition for their accomplishments in science and related STEAM disciplines.
The goal of the October Copy Center Cleanup Challenge was to build an electromagnet and use it to create a device that could pick up staples from the floor and deposit them into a cup. Students were given 45 minutes create their devices. They were provided bolts, wires, and batteries to create the electromagnet, and they were required to wire a switch into their system so that after picking up staples magnetically, the circuit could be broken and allow the staples to fall into a collection cup. They had to mount their system onto a meter stick so that the staples could be picked up without bending over. They were required to collect and deposit 36 individual staples, and the group with the fastest time was declared the winner.
