SELIS Survey

On Wednesday, our 3rd and 4th graders will be taking the Social Emotional Learning Indicator System or SELIS survey through the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Chelmsford was one of 12 pilot districts to administer this survey to gauge students' social/emotional development at school. The results can help us plan our tiers of support for students at the school and district levels.

K-12 Youth Art Month

Chelmsford's annual K-12 Youth Art Month Exhibit at the Chelmsford Public Library is open through March. This special event showcases pieces representing each school and illustrates the wide range of art created in our programs.

While we are unfortunately not able to host the traditional reception portion of our art show this year, we encourage you and our Chelmsford families to visit the library this month to view the amazing artwork on display and join us in celebrating Youth Art Month. You can see our program for the exhibit HERE.
