Message from Julie

Hi everyone!

I wish you all a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving with your loved ones. It is a privilege to get to know and work with your children. Thank you all so much for welcoming me into the community!


Super important news:

Due to an unforeseen conflict at the Academy, we have to move our holiday concert. It is now on 12/19 at 6:30PM. We will also be going over to the Academy that day to rehearse, so be on the lookout for that permission slip.


Report Cards are being MAILED home on 12/5 for both schools.


Art from the Heart - both school are invited to WES on December 7th from 330-530 to make holiday gifts for family members!


Winter Programming begins on 1/10/19 and runs for the next 5 Thursdays. We are still missing sign up sheets from many kiddos, and we sent out a second round this week. Please get them in ASAP! Remember that you need to register online for skiing, but we do need your signup sheet as well. Thank you!


5/6 Parent Meeting with PIZZA!!!!!!!

12/3 at SME at 5:30-6:45

The Samuel Morey Elementary 5th/6th Grade Team would like to invite you to dinner and an informative presentation and discussion about healthy relationships. Children make relationships with teachers, with parents, with siblings, and friends and other individuals in their communities and this talk will help all of us teach children healthy relationship-building skills for friendships, siblings and more!


Two 3-6 field trips are coming up for both schools! Be on the lookout for permission slips!

12/5 - Trip to Dartmouth College to see the girls' team play and to talk about positive and healthy choices.

12/12 - Trip to Northern Stage to see Matilda!


12/21 - K-4 field trip to WES for some holiday cheer! (Parents are welcome) 9-1030!
