Thank you all for working so steadily with us!
News From Tech
Up in the tech lab, students across all grades are coming near the end of their second rotation. Kindergarteners are learning how to navigate across websites as well as using their Chromebooks to create images. Lots of creativity is on display there! Fall is certainly evident with the 1st graders creating fall leaves pictures in Wixie while 2nd grade have been learning about digital citizenship and tuning up their programming skills on Code.org. 3rd grade have been continuing their work on highlighting ways to be digital citizens while 4th grade has been learning about the ads we see and how to keep our computers and accounts safe. In the 5th grade, students have been doing great work around cyberbullying and what we should do when we encounter it. There’s been awesome work across all grade levels!

When Calling Students Out Sick...
Reminder to all parents of 3rd Graders: Your child’s physical is due. If your child has had a physical in 2021 please have a copy forwarded to the health office if you have not already done so. If your child is in need of a physical, please make an appointment with their Primary Care Provider soon. If you need a form, please call the school nurse and one will be sent home. Physicals can always be faxed to the health office at 978-827-5699. Thanks for your prompt attention!
