Good afternoon Barbieri families,
We will begin our final full week of school for the 2022 year! We will begin our winter break vacation at the end of this week. Please note that it is a FULL week of school. Friday, December 23rd is NOT a half day or early release day.
Please see the fun and exciting spirit days we have planned this week!
The temperatures continue to get colder so please remember to send our hawks to school properly dressed to enjoy the outdoors, fresh air, and physical activity for 30-mins recess each day,.
Gracias a todos,
STUDENTS NEED COATS FOR RECESS 🧤🧣❄️🧥
Teachers are encouraged to take their students out every day, unless weather conditions make it unsafe. Our Hawks need fresh air, sunshine and physical activity! Students participating in recess will NEED TO WEAR A COAT. Please send your child to school with A COAT and any other necessary accessories to safely enjoy outdoor play! Recess is now 30 minutes every day. It is not safe for students to be outdoors without coats for that long period of time during chilling temperatures.
We do have extra outerwear available here Barbieri School so please call the main office at (508) 626-9187, if you need assistance! The office can connect you with Ms. Rebecca Salguero, our school Wraparound Coordinator, will be happy to help you!
