March Madness Final Assembly – Friday, April 12 at 1:30!!
We will be holding our March Madness Final Assembly before April break. Students have been working very hard on their foul shots and strategies for the hot shot shooting con-test. Check with your students during break to see how it turned out!

Student Council News
Student Council is sponsoring an all school fun event on Friday, May 3rd. WE ARE IN NEED OF A FEW MORE PARENT VOLUNTEERS. The evening will start at 5:00 and will feature an “Olympic games” event with 10 activity stations. The games event is open to all grades K-6 students and will include pizza and refreshments. The games will end at 6:30 and all students in grades K-3 will need to be transported home by a parent at that time. The second part of the event will be an end of the year dance from 7-8:30 and will be open to students in grades 4-6. Students in grades 4-6 can opt to attend one or both of the evening events. There will be a small admission fee to cover costs of pizza and refreshments. The fee for students attending only the games event is $3. The fee for students in grades 4-6 who are attending the dance is $5. This fee includes admission to the games event. A flyer will be sent home in early April for parents to sign and return to the school. Parents interested in volun-teering should contact the school or email Laura Catullo at

PE News
During PE classes in April we will be learning about tennis. K-2 learn basic manipulation skills through a variety of games. 3-6 build upon those skills through game play!

Happy Spring From The Kids Cafe:
We had the opportunity to meet with the Student Council and the Council did a survey with all of the students looking for ideas for new menu items. April’s menu is show-casing two new items that were on top of the list. We will be serving Cheese Quesadillas and Nachos & Cheese. We will have a “Potato Bar” on the 23rd with our Baked Chicken and we will also serve “Chili” with our Hot Dogs to the students who want it. Enjoy!!

April 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am sure we all are very thankful that April has arrived after what was a long winter. I am happy to see the thermometer on the rise allowing students to get outside more often and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. Please remember to have your child wear sneakers so he/she has a safe experience outside.

The month of April also brings MCAS testing. The staff and I have made it a point not to bring too much attention to this in an effort to reduce the stress level some student’s experience. The classroom teachers and paraprofessionals in the past have stepped up and provided their grade levels with an additional recess period to decompress after testing.

The grand finale of our March Madness activities will be April 12th at 1:30 in the gym and the public is welcome. Many thanks to all the staff who made that possible.

As always please feel free to call or stop by with any questions or concerns.
