A Note From Mrs. Looman

Welcome back!! I am so excited to see everyone Monday morning! The new year hold so much promise and potential. I have missed your children and look forward to meeting our new students as well. I am confident that the year ahead is going to be full of wonderful experiences and lots of growth and learning. Please don't ever hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.

The first day of school is Monday, August 29th. The first three days will be 12:30 dismissals. The regular full day schedule will begin on Thursday, September 1st.

Staffing update: At this time, we are still looking for a PE teacher, a paraprofessional, and a custodian. I'm in the process of interviews and hope to have an announcement for you all next week.

Please be sure to read Superintendent Stanton's S'Update for COVID information as it pertains to our school this year.

Below you will see three different buttons for three different annual forms that must be completed by families. They are the blanket field trip permission slip, the media permissions form, and the chromebook use forms. Please note that they must be completed by Friday, September 9th. Why not click on the links now and you can check this off your back to school list? :)

First Day Celebration

Don't forget to join us on Monday for our First Day Celebration!

Below, please see the schedule for our annual First Day Celebration on Monday, August 29th from 8:30-10:00 am.

At 8:30, you'll get to visit your child's classroom, meet the teacher, and see where they'll be spending their day at school.

At 9:00, we will have all adults join us in the cafe for a cup of coffee and to hear a bit about the school and some of what we have planned for the year.

At 9:30, the students will join us for the first all school assembly of the year, where all staff will be introduced and we will share a story together and play a game or two.

At 10:00, we invite you to give your child one last hug or high-five and enjoy the rest of your morning.

Intake Conferences

Building a strong home/school partnership is really important to us as we believe this is the foundation to a successful school experience. We want to hear from you what your hopes and dreams for the year are, as well as to be able to share some of what you can expect from us. These conferences will be held between 1-3 on the first three days of school. Please contact Mrs. White in the front office to schedule your conference. You can reach her by calling 413-624-3451 or by emailing

We look forward to meeting with you all then.
