Center Community Chat

May 8, 2022

Dear Center Community,

Happy Mother's Day! A big shout out to all of our caretakers for partnering with us help our students learn, grow, and be great citizens.

Center families show their appreciation for staff each and every day in so many ways, AND you certainly outdid yourself this week. The warm welcoming we received on Monday was such a nice way to start the day and the treats, kind words, meals, and swag bags were so amazing. You certainly accomplished your goal of making us feel appreciated. THANK YOU!!

Staffing Updates

  • Stephanie Santos will be on leave for the remainder of the year. Please keep her in your thoughts as she continues to grow her babies at home. We will be sure to give you an update when there is good news to share.
  • Please welcome Micaela Cardozo who has joined the Center staff to cover for Ms. Santos.
  • We will wish Jen Ayotte a fond farewell at the end of the school year. Ms. Ayotte has been teaching 3rd grade at Center for the last 8 years. She will be enjoying more time with her family having accepted a teaching job closer to home.

Family Sing Along info

Hello Center Community,

On Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30 PM, I will hold a family sing-along night in the Center School Gym. My goal is for the Center Community to come together to make music.

Students will sing songs they learned in Music Class, I will teach the song to everyone, and then we will all sing it together. All kindergarten through fourth-grade students and their families are invited. Feel free to bring a blanket to sit on!

I hope to see you from 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM on May 10th in the Center School Gym.

Please complete this form if you plan on attending:

I look forward to making music with all of you!
