Summer Learning Registration is Here
It is time to register your child for Summer Learning. Please use the following link to sign your child(dren) up. An early registration will ensure that we have the staff and resources to host a robust summer learning program.
Explore and Expand, Title 1 and Summer Academy will begin on July 5th and run through July 27th. The programs are either 3 or 4 mornings a week depending on the age of your child(dren). A more detailed description of summer learning opportunities can be found in the registration form.
Similar to last year, all summer programming is free including transportation and lunch. Please note that we are working to increase the number of buses so that there are additional common pick-up and drop-off locations for students. We will work closely with town summer Recreation Programs to coordinate so that children may participate in both rec. programming as well as ConVal summer learning.
Please reach out with any questions!

Virtual Field Trip in Mrs. Beaumont's Class
Hello Spring! - From Ms. Lawler's Class
Notes from the Office
Attendance and Lunch Orders: Please make sure if your child is going to be late or absent to put that information into PickUp Patrol. If they are going to be late, indicate if they are ordering lunch (A of B) and choice of milk (white/chocolate), or having home lunch. Lunch counts are called over at 9:30am so it is helpful if I don’t need to chase down this information.
Start Time of Classes: Students should be in their classroom by 8:40, not being dropped off at 8:40 or later. When students arrive late, it not only makes the transition to the classroom more difficult, but it upsets the flow of the morning in the classroom and they may miss important information. Students need a few minutes to get set for a successful day. We greatly appreciate your attention to this detail and any effort you can make to have your students arrive to be in class by 8:40. If a student arrives after 8:40, then they are also not able to get school breakfast. Thank you for your attention to these details!
Notes from Ms. Gregg - School Counselor
In classroom counseling lessons in Kindergarten through Fourth Grade, students are learning about the S T E P process of problem-solving. S: Say the Problem Without Blame: T: Think of Solutions: E: Explore Outcomes (what would happen, how would people feel about the possible solutions); and P: Pick a Solution. Students are reviewing calming-down/self-regulation strategies as well, because it is not possible to engage in effective problem-solving while emotions are elevated ("yellow zone" or "red zone") so it is necessary to calm down before attempting to solve problems.
Other classroom lessons have focused on perspective-taking and empathy, the skill of "putting oneself in another person's shoes"; and on assertiveness: asking for what you want or need in a respectful, courageous way.
