All you need to know about DeMello...

Hello DeMello Families!

As we wrap up another week here at DeMello, we are looking ahead to next week and taking some time as a community to express our gratitude for our families, students and amazing staff. On behalf of our school, I want to let you know how thankful and honored we are to work with your amazing children each and every day. Additionally, it is a privilege to partner with you, our DeMello parents and guardians, in the education of your students. Thank you for sharing your children with us!

First Grade Literacy Night

This week, we held our first family night of the school year with our First Grade Literacy Night Camp Out! A BIG thank you to our selfless first grade reading team: Dr. Maucione, Mrs. Reitzas, Mrs. Rodrigues, Mrs. Alvanas, Mrs. Amaral and Mrs. Travassos! They have been planning this event over the past two months. Enjoy the photos below of our first graders listening to read alouds, practicing sight words and eating s'mores!

PTO Fall Fest @ Cushman!

The DeMello/Cushman PTO will be holding a Fall Fest at the Cushman School tomorrow, 11/19 from 1:00-3:00 at the CUSHMAN School! Please be mindful that parking at the school is limited and families may need to find parking elsewhere on and around Dartmouth Street. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thanksgiving Break Reminder

Just a friendly reminder that dismissal will be at NOON on Wednesday, 11/23. Breakfast will be served that morning. If your child signed up for a take-home lunch, it will be delivered to them before dismissal.


School will resume on Monday, 11/28.


Again, Happy Thanksgiving!
