Message from the Office
I hope you all enjoyed your holiday break from school and found some time to relax and spend quality time with friends and family.
A few reminders as we head into December:
- Please make sure your child is properly dressed for the weather. We will continue to go outside for recess, as long as the weather permits.
- The lost and found has been getting larger and larger. If you are missing a coat, sweatshirt, lunchbox, etc. please remind your child to check in the cafeteria.
- Cold and flu season is officially here, continue to call and inform the office of any absences.

Connecticut Invention Convention
This week the Invention Convention mentors Mrs. Bruce and Mrs. James came to each lunch wave to share information about the after-school program that will begin on December 8th. The program runs Thursdays until 4:20, transportation home is required. The program supports students through the invention process. During club sessions, mentors will help answer questions, problem-solve, and work through the invention logs with students. At home, families must support the weekly homework and the building of the invention. The end result is an individual invention that is created at home which will be presented at the Enfield Invention on Saturday, March 4th. There will also be a family information night for the district on November 29th from 6-7 pm at the J.F.K. Library. If your child is interested in participating please fill out the form and submit it back to the school by December 2nd .
