From the Principal

Mistakes make a difference!

 

Dear Parents,

A reminder that Wednesday, December 13th is an early release day for students. Lunch will be served.

As the weather turns cold we ask that students come dressed appropriately. Students go out to recess if the temperature is above 20 degrees. We do require students to remain in the office if they are not dressed for the cold weather which is so disappointing to them. Your assistance in ensuring students come to school with proper clothing for the winter months is greatly appreciated!

Parents of third and fourth grade students please note important upcoming MCAS dates. We are attempting to administer MCAS as late as we can during the testing window to provide teachers and students maximum amount of teaching and learning time. Therefore, it will be very important for students to be in school during the testing dates as the window for make-ups is very short. It has been our experience that students perform best on MCAS when they take the test with their class and it is administered by their classroom teachers.  For this reason, we kindly ask that you avoid making doctor appointments, dentist appointments and family vacations on the following dates. Testing is generally completed before lunch time on most days.  

ELA MCAS Test Administration Dates: Tuesday - 5/1; Wednesday 5/2 (DESE has reduced the number of ELA sessions from 3 to 2. We have eliminated the  4/30 MCAS date. )

Math MCAS Test Administration Dates: Tuesday 5/15; Thursday 5/16

Regards,
Deb Collura
