Parents & Guardians:

I hope everyone enjoyed some time away from the daily grind and hopefully you were able to do something fun with family and friends. Regardless of what you were able to do, I hope everyone was able to relax and unwind and just enjoy the break – I know I did.

We are all very are excited to have our students back and we can’t wait to start the learning journey once again. We are looking forward to an amazing week of learning.

I hope everyone had a great vacation!

PSAT Testing

8th grade students who signed up for PSAT testing will take the exam on Wednesday, Feb. 27th. This is a great opportunity to see where you stand with this type of testing platform.

PTO’s Box Top Contest:

The PTO is holding a box top collection contest for all grades and the winning homeroom will be treated to a special breakfast!

Box tops are due in by Feb 15th. Homeroom teachers have collection envelopes to put them in. If you can send them in counted and labeled with the amount, it would be extremely helpful.

Each one is worth 10 cents and they really add up! PTO collects these in the office ALL YEAR LONG.

PTO & Pizzeria Uno’s:

Dine at Pizzeria UNO’s in Sturbridge anytime in February or March and the PTO will earn 20% off food sales.

UNO’s ticket must be brought with you and can be printed off below by clicking on “Click Here.”
