Peter Noyes Friday Flyers
Week of September 13th
From The Desk of Annette Doyle
Dear Noyes Families,
Happy Friday! We are getting into the rhythm now and we’re even looking to add back some pre-COVID parent volunteer opportunities soon. If you do want to volunteer at school, please know that you must provide proof of vaccination. More to come on this soon.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHTS
Since we as a district are hosting virtual Back to School Nights this year, we are scheduling each grade level at a different time on two different nights so that families can attend each of their children’s classroom sessions.
Tuesday, September 28
6:00-6:40 pm -- Kindergarten
6:45-7:25 pm — Grade 1
7:30-8:15 pm — Grade 2
Wednesday, September 29
5:15-5:55 pm -- Preschool
6:00-6:40 pm — Grade 3
6:45-7:25 pm — Grade 4
7:30-8:15 pm — Grade 5
Your child's classroom teacher will share a Google Meet link with you prior to the session's scheduled time. Please be sure you have a Google account or, if not, that you are prepared to use your child’s account in order to participate in the Back to School Night video conference via Google Meet with the classroom teachers. Other information typically shared at traditional Back to School Nights will be shared at the start of that week. As always, please reach out to any member of your child's teaching team with questions or concerns.
SPS COVID TESTING FORM AND THE COVID DASHBOARD
A key element of our COVID mitigation strategy is weekly COVID testing. We anticipate beginning testing on Wednesday, September 22. We are partnered with CIC Health and are awaiting their staffing support and supplies to make this a reality next week. If you have not already registered your child for weekly pool testing, you can still grant permission to participate. Please click here to sign up for testing. Please do not sign up again if you have already registered your child.
Also, the district recently posted a COVID Dashboard on the SPS website. This shows the number of cases per building, as well as the percentage of vaccinated staff and the percentage of students who are participating in weekly COVID testing.
FOOD PANTRY COLLECTION ON SEPTEMBER 24
We are collecting Sudbury Food Pantry items next week. Please have your child bring in cans/boxes of non-perishable food items (no glass) anytime during the week of September 20. Volunteers will collect the food on Friday, September 24 and deliver it to the Sudbury Food Pantry. Your generosity and participation are deeply appreciated.

5th Grade Activity Volunteers - Please email Jenn Spencer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Occasionally, during the school year, we facilitate some social skill-building opportunities. These activities allow students to make social connections at school. We often encourage children to invite a classmate (“buddy”) to engage in a game or activity for approximately 15-20 minutes. During these meetings, the children discuss school-related topics, play cooperative games, and engage in other social activities. Almost always, the children are happy to visit and ask when it will be their “turn” to join the group. Please know that we plan with classroom teachers so that children will not miss essential instruction. If, however, you are not comfortable with your child being a buddy/guest, please contact your child's classroom teacher.
Noyes Special Education Department and Guidance Department
HOPEsudbury was created after the tragic events of September 11, 2001. We are a diverse group of residents, town employees, and business people working to help those in need of support, encouragement, and financial assistance.
The HOPE Fund Our signature program, The HOPE Fund, is a valuable source of short-term financial assistance for local individuals and families with emergency or unexpected financial need. The Fund has distributed more than $850,000 since it was established in 2002. Each year 60-70 Sudbury families who have fallen on hard times turn to The HOPE Fund for support
Giving Beyond Our Borders Each year we direct a portion of our charitable giving to nonprofit organizations across the state, the country and the world serving people struggling to meet basic needs. We also support agencies engaged in rapid response to natural disasters.
Our mission is to create opportunities for Sudbury citizens to work together for the common good. Through our popular Telethon & Auction and our various community drives and events, HOPEsudbury encourages residents from all walks of life to share their time and talents to support others in need.
To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are asking the schoolchildren of Sudbury to draw or write about what hope and helping in the community means to them. These leaves will be displayed in the schools until our telethon, November 6th.
Thank you for encouraging your child to participate in this project.
