Adjusting Start Times: Family Survey
Our district is considering changing the starting and ending times at our schools in order to optimize learning for all of our students. This survey is intended to get information from families about the impact of shifting start times. The responses we gather and analyze from families, staff, and students will inform our decision-making process. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey so that we can hear your voice.

Visit from the Animal Refuge League
Over the past two weeks, Sixth graders in Mrs. Cyr’s class have had an Educator from the Animal Refuge League visit class. Felicia had lessons about keeping the animal population down, the pros and cons of breed labels at the shelter, and animal enrichment. On Halloween Day, these 6th graders made treats (no tricks!) for shelter animals and their own pets.
Mrs. Lavertu's Favorite Picture Book: Friends Stick Together by Hannah E Harrison
Rupert is a rhinoceros of refined sensibilities. Levi, the new tickbird in class, is not. He burps the alphabet, tells corny jokes, and does really embarrassing air guitar solos. Worse, he lands right on Rupert and is determined to be Rupert's symbiotic best pal! Rupert wants him gone. But when Levi finally does bug off, Rupert finds the peace and quiet a little boring. It turns out, Rupert could really use a friend like Levi.
This sweet and moving friendship story shares an important message of acceptance for every reader--whether they're a Rupert or a Levi.
