Moreau's Monthly Messenger - M3
A Message from Mr. H.
Next week at Moreau Hall is Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11). It is a time to celebrate our teachers and acknowledge what an important job they do each day. I feel so very fortunate to be in a community like Moreau Hall. Our PAC and all the parent volunteers really do a wonderful job of supporting our school family and showing our faculty and staff just how much they appreciate them. We have built a great team here at our school. Thank you to our Teachers! I am continuously impressed by what you do on a daily basis. It is an honor and privilege to watch you work.

Mr. Dennison's Music Notes
In April, Kindergarten finished their unit on train songs. They learned songs and chants for different parts of a train, and finished with one of my favorite pieces of music The Little Train of the Caipira. We use movement and imagination in class to reach students who are still finding their singing voice. 1st grade also finished a large unit of songs in Spanish. There is the challenge of learning the songs, while also finding the meaning of the words and songs. There are a few Spanish-speaking students that helped us out.
2nd grade classes have begun working on the annual Spring Sing. They will learn a class song and several combined songs to present in concert near the end of the year. I will send more information in a letter to second grade families. They seem excited about the song choices. We change our regular routine of music class into a “rehearsal”. It is a busy and important time for them!
Thanks for reading!

Grade 2 STEM Night
Day of Kind'Ness' 2018
On Thursday, April 26th Seniors from Oliver Ames High School spread out all around the Town of Easton to give back to the community in honor of Devin Ness, an OA student who died unexpectedly in January of 2013. A group of Seniors, many of whom attended our school, came to Moreau Hall to weed, mulch, rake, and trim bushes. Mr. Hammond, our school custodian, and Mrs. Finch, our PAC Co-Chair, found plenty for them to do while they were here. Thank you to the Ness Family, Cindy Hall (Devin’s 4th grade teacher), and Wes Paul (OA Principal) for coordinating such a successful event that promotes community involvement and service. It sets such a wonderful example for our young students to see high schoolers giving back to their community in honor of Devin.

PAC News - Parent Advisory Council
Our next PAC meeting on Wednesday, May 16th is an important one! The Moreau Hall Parent Advisory Council is in need of Executive Board Members and volunteers for a great number of events. As some of our second grade parents leave our school it creates volunteer openings for many areas. The Moreau Hall Family needs your help!
We are also in need of a great many volunteers for our annual Field Day on Friday, May 25th. This is a wonderful culminating event for our students and families and we hope you can join us. We are in particular need of Kindergarten parents to escort small groups of students around during the day. An up to date CORI needs to be on file with the school.
Our PAC and parent volunteers help to make Moreau Hall a special place to learn. We appreciate your support!
