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.
Individual Parent Conferences will be taking place during the month of January. Letters and sign ups are going home the first week in January. 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 an- other parent. The number for the school is 617- 635-8149.
The parent run Scholastic Book fair was another huge success. Both the Parent Council and I would like to thank all of the parents who support- ed the fair by purchasing books, volunteering and buying books for the classrooms.
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. is labeled.
Many thanks to all of the parents who supported our annual holiday show.
Souper Bowl Drive
Our annual food drive will begin January 21st and end on January 31st. All food collected will be donated to a local food pantry. Thank you for your generosity.
As long as the Patriots are in the playoffs we allow students to support the home team (or any foot- ball team) by wearing Patriots outfits or colors the Friday before a game. Let’s hope we make it to the Superbowl again!!!!
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 pick up and drop off times. It is imperative that students use the crosswalk to cross the bus line to get to the sidewalk. Parents please respect the bus line by allowing the busses to flow freely in and out of the schoolyard. Near the entrance of the schoolyard cars need to be pulled in and up as far as possible so the busses can make the swing and a clear entrance into the schoolyard. Please fill in spaces as much as possible so cars waiting to get in do not block the fire- house.
