Hosmer Huskies are Working on the "Most Magnificent Things"!
Note from Ms. Moulton
Greetings Hosmer Families,
Happy Lunar New Year to those who celebrate! A new year and a new beginning are always cause for celebration. They are also a reminder to us to be hopeful as we look towards the future!
Believe it or not, this Thursday will be the 90th day of the school year! We will recognize this as "Half- Way Day", especially in our upper grades where students have been learning about fractions. This also means that the 100th day of school will be upon us in just a couple of weeks.
This month we have been looking closely at the words of the Paws Promise. Last week we focused on "working together" and this week we will focus on "showing safe and respectful behaviors".
We have a few important things coming up over the next few weeks:
- Report Cards will be sent home on Friday, Feb. 3rd.
- Diversity & Belonging Council is hosting a family event - "The Winter Warmer" on Friday, Feb. 10th (more information below).
- The PTO Boosterthon begins on Wednesday, Feb. 8th. This is the PTO's biggest fundraiser of the year. For the past two years, this event was held at the end of the year. We are looking forward to our Boosterthon friends joining us for some fun a bit earlier.
As always, thank you for your ongoing support our wonderful school. This is truly a wonderful community.
With a grateful heart,
Erin L. Moulton
Students in Mrs. Doherty's grade 4 class and Mrs. Massa's grade 1 class got together to read and to complete an activity for Chinese New Year!

As such, please review the information contained in this section regarding school closure protocols. State law requires 180 days of instruction and also requires that any school closures (“snow days”) be made up before June 30. In the case of inclement weather or school closure for emergency reasons, information about school closures will be:
-Posted on the District’s website (www.watertown.k12.ma.us), the WPS Facebook page (@watertownpublicschools) and the WPS Twitter feed (@watertownschool)
-Emailed to parents and staff from the Superintendent’s office via the District’s messaging service
-Broadcast to the following stations
- WCVB Television (Channel 5)
- WHDH Television (Channel 7)
- NBC Boston (Channel 10 and NECN)
- WFXT Television (Channel 25)
- WBZ Television (Channel 4)
- WBZ Radio (AM 1030)
Some television stations provide a free text alert service notifying of closures and delays (e.g., www.fox25boston.com/weather/closing-login). We will post on the above locations as soon as the decision is made.
