From the Principal – May 2012


International Night
We had a wonderful turn out for our annual Family International Night. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to making this night such a huge success.

Spring Clean Up
Mayor Menino’s Community Office arranged for Chestnut Hill Realty to landscape our grounds. Along with the work of the West Roxbury Garden Club, our school looks beautiful!

MCAS Dates
There have been changes to the May MCAS schedule. The new schedule is Grade 3 — May 8 & 9.

School Attire
Now that the warm weather is finally here, I would like to remind everyone that short shorts, short skirts and short shirts are not appropriate school attire and will not be permitted. For safety, no Heelys or flip flops are allowed as well.

Kindergarten 2 – Moving On Ceremony
The K2 Celebration is scheduled for June 14th. The tentative time is

Parent Sponsored Field Day
Field Day is scheduled for June 7th. We need parent volunteers to work this event. Sign up sheets will be coming home soon.

2nd & 3rd Grade Tours
The second grade students will go visit the Ohrenberger on Tuesday, May 22nd. The third grade students will go visit the Ohrenberger on Wednesday, May 23rd. The students will get to see the building, meet students and have a fun activity at the Ohrenberger.

Time on Learning
Our school day begins at 8:25 AM. More students, on a daily basis, are coming into the building late. This disrupts the established routines in the classroom and students are missing out on valuable teaching time. Also, please be aware that school dismissal is at 2:25PM. All parents should wait outside until students are dismissed. Only in the case of a rare emergency, will students be dismissed early. It is very disruptive to the classes to have students leave 10 minutes early. Thank you for your cooperation.
