Message from the Principal

Good Afternoon,

Today (October 18, 2019) Trimester 1 progress reports were sent home with your student. Please sign the progress report envelope and keep the progress report for your records. The signed envelope is due back to your student’s homeroom teacher by Wednesday, October 23, 2019.

Also, Parent MCAS reports will be mailed home today. These reports contain detailed information about your child’s performance on Spring 2019 MCAS testing. This report will show your child’s achievement level, which will fall between 440 and 560 and be categorized as Not Meeting Expectations and Exceeding Expectations. It will also show your child’s growth percentile, a measurement of progress made compared to students with similar scores on 2019 MCAS testing. If you have any questions about this report you can contact me at the school office (781) 982-2170.

Have a restful weekend,

Mr. MacCurtain, Principal
