From the Principal — January 2011


The staff and I would like to thank all of the parents and students for their gifts, cards and warm wishes during the holiday season!

Parent Conferences
Individual parent conferences will be taking place during the month of January. Letters and sign-ups went home in December. If something comes up and you cannot make it to your scheduled meeting time, please call the school so we might be able to accommodate another parent. The school’s phone number is: 617.635.8149

Book Fair
The parent-run Scholastic Book Fair  was another huge success this year! Both the Parent Council and I would like to thank all the parents and guardians who supported the fair by purchasing books, volunteering and buying books for the classrooms.

Label Clothing
Please write the initials of your child on the tags of their jackets.  Students are leaving their clothing around the school and it is easier to locate the owner if the jacket, hat, gloves, etc. are labeled.

Holiday Show
May thanks to all of the parents and guardians who supported our annual holiday show!

MMM Concert
The grade 3 Mini-concert will be on Thursday January 6th (tomorrow) at 9am.

Patriot Days
While the New England Patriots are in the playoffs, we are having “Patriot Days” every Friday before the game. Students are welcomed to wear team jerseys or red, white and blue clothing to school on that day.

Food Drive
I am excited and proud to announce that the Beethoven School collected over 1,200 pounds of food for the Greater Boston Food Bank! Between both schools, over 2,700 pounds of food were donated! Thanks a ton!!!

Winter and the Schoolyard
With the winter months upon us and snow falling frequently in New England, please be extra cautious in the schoolyard during drop-off and pick-up times. It is imperative that students use the cross walk to cross the bus line and get to the sidewalk!

Parents, please respect the bus line by allowing the buses to flow freely in and out of the schoolyard. Near the entrance of the schoolyard, cars must be pulled in so the buses can make a swing and clear the entrance to the schoolyard.

We want to thank everyone for their cooperation in this matter.
