Regional School District No. 6
Principal's Message for December 3, 2015
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
Congratulations to the Upper Blended, 5th, and 6th grade students for a wonderful concert yesterday evening. Thank you to Mrs. Sarah Bills for providing students at all three elementary schools the opportunity to perform together. What a great way to welcome in the holiday season!
Chapter 126 and Imagine Nation Museum
We are looking forward to our field trip to Bristol tomorrow (Friday). The Early Primary and 1st grade students will visit the Imagine Nation Museum to engage in some hands-on exhibits and exploration. The older students will visit Chapter 126 Sports & Fitness Center, where they will play some adaptive recreational sports while gaining an understanding of and empathy for people who live with disabilities. Please send your children to school with a healthy snack and drink to take on the trip. We will eat lunch when we return to school. The cafeteria will serve Bosco sticks.
Elementary Progress Reports will be sent home with your children tomorrow, December 4th. As Superintendent Drapp mentioned in his email message a few weeks ago, this year's Progress Reports have been modified in response to parent feedback. Starting immediately, student progress indicators will communicate your child's performance for the current trimester versus progress toward the end-of-year standard. We feel that this approach will provide a clearer understanding of your child's progress.

Please also take a moment to provide feedback on the progress report. The link to the survey is here. Results from this survey will be used to improve this communication tool. If you are interested in participating in a focus group, please provide your email address at the end of the online survey.
