A Message from our Principal

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost in May. We’ve been getting glimpses of warmer weather, but it appears that we may actually have the warmth arrive this week! 

As we get into the warmer weather, please remember to send students with appropriate clothing. It may be warm in the afternoon and cool in the mornings. Light jackets are helpful when it has the potential to be cool. Also, we ask that you not send your kids with open-toed shoes. They play hard at recess and nothing can ruin a fun recess faster than a sharp stick to the toes. 

Please remember, too, that water bottles are helpful as we strive to stay hydrated. It helps us cut down on Dixie-cup waste and on students going back and forth to the bubbler. However, please do not send in glass water bottles or jars. This extends to Tupperware for home lunches too. Glass is wonderful until it breaks. In an elementary school, it is inevitable that any glass will become broken glass. 

Please keep up to date with end-of-year happenings. Late May and June are full of community events. Updated schedules will be coming home on the reverse of the weekly mailings. One date to keep blocked off is our May sing on May 18. This will be a special Memorial Day sing, and service members from our community will be in attendance. Please join us for this special and somber event. 

This Wednesday is a half-day. It will be the final in-service day of the year for teachers to work on project-based unit creation. We look forward to continuing our work on this exciting initiative. Thursday will be a PTO meeting at 5:15 p.m. at the Rendezvous in Turners Falls. 

Finally, we are in the midst of MCAS testing for this year. Students have been working hard to put their best foot forward. The following are the dates for the reminder of the MCAS schedule: May 1 - 3rd, 5th, and 6th ELA. May 2 - 4th and 6th ELA. May 3-4 - make-ups for ELA. May 9-10 - 5th science. May 15 - 3rd, 4th, and 5th math. May 16 - 3rd, 4th, and 6th math. May 17 - 5th and 6th math. May 22-23 - math make-ups. 

Thank you, and happy spring!
