Message from the Principal

Good Afternoon,

It’s hard to believe that next week is the April school vacation. When we return there will be a little more than seven weeks left in the current school year. This is a critical time for students as they are either working hard to maintain good grades or to improve grades before the end of the school year. As a parent of two school age children, I also understand that this is a busy time for families as good weather and spring sports work to dominate the after school family schedule. It is important to set aside time for homework and studying necessary to continue academic growth as schedules become more hectic.

At school our schedule also becomes a bit more hectic as the year begins to wind down. Grades 5, 6 & 7 have completed ELA MCAS. Grade 8 will take ELA MCAS after the vacation week, and then all grades will be taking Math MCAS. Grades 5 & 8 will finish up with Math MCAS testing.

We also have 11 separate grade level, subject or group field trips planned, as well as grade level enrichment programs and whole school assemblies coming up. Grade 8 is also preparing for the trip to Philadelphia in early June. This is an exciting time of year.

Enjoy the week away from school, we will be looking forward to coming back well rested and ready to take on the remainder of the school year. Have a restful and relaxing April break
