Teacher Appreciation Week Recap – Earlier this month, Teacher Appreciation Week was packed with actions of gratitude for our teachers.  Thanks to all the parents who treated the whole Beethoven staff to a breakfast, a supply of recycled goods to use in the classrooms, a luncheon, gift cards, a massage, and other special treats throughout the week.  A bonus was the super special quotes plastered on the auditorium walls that the students provided about their teachers.

Field Day – Don’t forget, field day will be held on June 7 with a rain date of June 8. If you’d like to volunteer, please contact Kris Hughes at: kris@izzitgreen.com. Kids will get to enjoy lots of outdoor activities, a live DJ, tattoos, and slushes!

Making Music Matters – Making Music Matters! needs your help. For the first time in the program’s history, they are faced with the challenge of being underfunded for the coming school year. If you’d like to help out by providing a donation, please contact Amy Brown at BrowneAmy@aol.com  or phone at 617-312-0156 or drop off your donation at the school office BY FRIDAY, MAY 25.

Playground Renovations – Our neighbor, Chestnut Hill Realty Group will be beautifying the entrance of the playground.  As the work is being done, please do not chat with the workers. During the renovation period, the playground will not be accessible after school.

Uniform Exchange – We are planning a school uniform exchange.  Stay tuned for details.

Beethoven/Ohrenberger K-8 Feeder School – Final vote!

On January 17 at 5:30pm in the Ohrenberger School Library, the Beethoven/Ohrenberger Joint Site Councils will meet to vote on the final phase of the K-8 feeder school model. Both site councils will be voting on the final stage of the Beethoven/Ohrenberger feeder model. This vote will create a formal request for the Superintendent and School Committee to sanction our feeder model into one school with two campuses.


We’re a little late with getting this posted, as school has already been in session for a few weeks… but we’ll catch up! Thanks for your patience. 🙂

From the Principal – September 2011

What a wonderful and exciting beginning of a new school year.  The feeder model is in year 3 and everything is going extremely well.   This school year is going to be the best school year ever!

Open House

There will be an Open House for all parents on Wednesday, October  5th from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  All parents are invited to come and meet the teachers, see the classrooms, and go over individual class’s syllabus and rules.

Parent  Site & Council Elections

Fund Raising

The fall fundraiser will begin shortly.  Thank you in advance for your continued support.  Please watch for the fund raising flyers from your child.

Making Music Matters!

Please see Mr. Puliafico if you need any information regarding Making Music Matters! for grade 3.

Bus Students

Please help out bus drivers pick up all students efficiently and safely.  All bus students must be standing on their assigned corners.  No one should be waiting in his or her car.  Many times there are substitute bus drivers that will not know that the students in your cars and just drive by the stop.

Safety in the Schoolyard

All parents are reminded that you must stay to the LEFT of the yellow lines when dropping off and picking up your child.  Please pull to the front of the yard to make room for others.

All students must be picked up on the sidewalk by an adult and then escorted to the car.  Please remember to cross in the crosswalk.  The bus drivers have a hard time seeing people walking between the vehicles.

With the help of everyone we can keep the students safe in the schoolyard during pickup and drop off times.

As a reminder…

Boxtops for Education

We are always collecting the Kimberly Clark brand product proof of purchases!

Ink Cartridges

From any printer or brand can be recycled by us in exchange for money for the school! So please bring them in!


The school and your child’s classroom are always accepting donations of: Kleenex/tissues, antibacterial wipes  paper towels.

Thank you and have a great school year!
