Harrington Happenings

Happy Sunday Harrington Families

I hope everyone is doing well and has been enjoying their weekend. We have a short and busy week ahead of us for our school, especially our third and fourth graders as they take their ELA MCAS Assessment. Please remember the following in regard to preparing your student for their MCAS Assessment:

  • Have your student to school on time! Students that arrive after 9:30 will not be able to take their MCAS on that day and will have to wait until after vacation to take the makeup MCAS.
  • Ensure your student gets a goodnights sleep. Shut off all electronic devices at least an hour prior to going to bed.
  • If possible have them eat a good breakfast

As a standard message, your support at home is recognized, valued, and appreciated by not only us, but by your child(ren).

  • Remind your child every day to be kind. We are all capable of being kind regardless of our individual differences. Promoting a kind environment is important throughout a child’s day both at school and at home.
  • Communicate the importance of education to your children. Each child should find time to read at home every day for enjoyment. Engage in dialogue about your child’s school day by asking open-ended questions.
  • Encourage play and physical activity. Limit television during the school week and keep your children away from electronics and social media for entertainment purposes.
  • Focus your encouragement on the process of hard work and effort, rather than the end result. We want students to learn to work hard and try their best always.
  • Establish good routines at home that involve a consistent bedtime. A well-rested child is a happier, more successful child.
  • We are a team and partners in your child’s success here at school. Communicate with us often.

Once again, remember to…"Push through your day, Smile, Be Happy, Stay Positive!"

Be safe! Stay well!
