Note from Ms. Moulton
Greetings Hosmer Families,
Grand Opening Celebration
Mark your calendar for the official Grand Opening of the New Hosmer Building on Tuesday, February 1st. I can't believe that is in only two weeks! While we will not yet be moved into the building, families and community members are invited to come in to see the amazing new building. If you are interested in volunteering to help during the event, please complete this form.
At the most recent School Committee meeting, the team voted to include Harriet Hosmer, an esteemed artist, in the dedication along with her family members, Alfred and Hiram. We are excited to include her in the celebration of the Hosmer family, for whom our school is named.
In-House Field Trips
Beginning this week (and running through the next few), each grade level will participate in an in-house field trip related to science. These programs will be put on by the Audobon Society and Wingmasters. Dates of these enrichment programs are below. These presentations have been graciously funded by our PTO and the Watertown Community Foundation. THANK YOU.
Report Cards and iReady results will go home with students next Friday, February 4th. Included with those will be a letter providing information about both of these reports and Watertown's approach to Standards-Based Grading.
Please continue to provide our nurse, Michele Cardarelli with copies of your child's vaccination cards once they are fully vaccinated.
If you discover a case of covid in your home through an at-home test or other means, please communicate that to the nurse as well as administrators or teachers.
Our PTO is meeting tomorrow evening, Monday, from 6:30-7:30. The Zoom link is in the calendar below.
Truly, there is a LOT happening right now at the Hosmer. Thank you for your ongoing support of our teachers, staff, and students.
With a grateful heart,
Mark Your Calendar!
