Dear Center Community,

Thank you for the abundance of donations for the families of Ukraine. We collected over 3 carloads of donations! The organizer who will be arranging to have donations shipped was overwhelmed by our generosity, again thank you!

Pianist for Fourth-Grade Performance
I am searching for an accompanist to play two songs fourth-grade students are learning.
If you play piano and are interested in playing for their move-up ceremony performance, please reach out to me.

Counselor's Corner

The Chelmsford Public Schools are pleased to be able to offer a new mental health referral service to our students and families. During the past several months and during Covid there has been a rise in mental health needs of children and families. To alleviate some of the burden off families at this time, we partnered with Care Solace, an organization who helps individuals find mental health care providers to respond to social emotional and mental health needs. Attached please find a family letter and explanation of the supports that Care Solace can provide. Students and families may access Care Solace by calling (888) 515-0595 or by logging onto, for an anonymous search of providers. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Fulreader, Mrs. Omobono, or our school Counseling team for additional support and guidance on utilizing this new resource.

Center Cares

Dear Center Community,

We often think of donating to help others in need around holiday times in November and December, however circumstances that impact families financially arise at all times of the year.

Please, know that we are currently seeking gift card donations to help our families that need some extra support. Gift cards in $20-25 increments (or any amount) from Target, Walmart or Market Basket would be most welcome! Please, if you are able to make a donation you may drop off gift cards at the front office.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and care.

Warm regards,

Ms. Lallas, Center School Counselor
