Our fundraising event is underway and we are off to an amazing start! 51% of our students are registered and we are already a quarter of the way to our goal of $15,000 shortly after kickoff.

The Fun Run will take place on Monday, October 24th and we need volunteers to be classroom helpers and to work the water tent. Volunteer time slots are split up by grade, so you can sign up to help while you cheer on your child and their classmates! You can sign up for any time slots that work for you here:

This school year, our School Librarian position was changed from a full-time position to a .7 position (3 1/2 days). Therefore, Mrs. Towns has very limited time to shelve books. She would love it if some people could volunteer to help her shelve them. Whether it be a one time volunteer, a weekly, or daily, we need your help. Can you give 30 minutes? one hour? a full day?

Please contact Mrs. Towns at or, just call the office and leave your name and number.

Over 200 people attended the Mulready Math Night! Everyone had fun playing math games, doing puzzles, doing an art activity with shapes, and having their pictures taken with Hundred Hero! There were board games and math games distributed between the gym and cafeteria. In the hallway there was and Estimation Station and math books to be read.

It was great to see families together, in person and having so much fun with math!


Last week was a busy week. On Wednesday, we had over 100 children participate in Walk to School Day. It was also Bruins Day at school.


Each week a student in Mrs. Regh's class chooses an experiment. The student follows a format for a lab report and review it with the class. The student then performs the experiment, reviews the outcome with the class, and then answers questions. This week, a boy did two experiments. One was soaking a gummy worm in water and washing how grew. The other was putting a fizzy tablet in water and see hoe the reaction made and M and M container explode like a rocket.

Please do not block the entrance/exit on Cox Street and the bus entrance/exit. Children should exit and enter cars on the right side of your vehicle. Do not exit your car to help your child. Staff will assist them.


We have three tables of sweatshirts, jackets, lunchboxes and backpacks. Please label your child's belongings. That way we can be sure that the items get back to their owners.

Also, if your child is missing clothing or a backpack or lunchbox, feel free to stop by and check out our tables.


Hats and hoodies are not allowed to be worn during the school day. The exception is that hats can be worn on some spirit days. There are children who are hiding inside of their hoodies in the classrooms.

Cell phones are not allowed to be seen or heard in school. If a child has one, it must be turned off and not seen or heard (kept in backpack). If it is seen or heard, it will be sent to the office and have to be picked-up by a parent. All phone calls from students will go through the office. Cell phones can only be used at CHAPS and the Boys and Girls Club.
