Sippican Weekly Overview
Week of February 12, 2024
Dear Sippican Elementary School Families,
We hope you had a great weekend. We are looking forward to our Winter Concert on Tuesday evening at 6:30pm and VASE is hosting the Marion Occupation Program (MOP) for 5th and 6th graders on Wednesday. Speaking of VASE, to echo the words of School Committee Chairperson April Nye, we are so grateful for the number of volunteers, donations and countless hours to the Sippican Community. VASE is celebrating its 50th year of commitment to the community of Marion and its students. Please join me in thanking the present and past members of VASE for the outstanding support and programming they provide for Sippican School. VASE is truly an integral part of our school community
