What is Move Up Day: On June 14th, students will participate in Move Up Day. This entails students briefly meeting with their teacher and classmates for next year. Students will be given a welcome letter from their new teacher to bring home that day. Additionally, school supplies will be bought by the district again this year.


Chelmsford Rotary Club Donation: Thank you to the Rotary Club for their donation of dictionaries for every grade 3 student. Dictionaries will be sent home the last week of school.


Gardening Opportunity: On June 15th at 3:15 members of the gardening committee will be working in the South Row courtyard garden preparing and planting the beds in anticipation of a Fall harvest. The gardening committee would like to extend the opportunity to all families to get involved either during this planting day or during the 2022-2023 school year. If you are interested in coming on the 15th and/or being a part of the gardening committee please reach out to Megan Curran at livefarmfresh@gmail.com.

Looking ahead - K-3 families: Please save your car dismissal numbers cards for next school year. At the end of the school year, please be sure you put them in a safe place. Your children will have the same number for their entire elementary career. New cards will be given to the incoming kindergarten families each year. Numbers will NOT be reprinted for current South Row students/families currently in grades K-3 unless you reach out to the main office staff in the Fall.

June 7th, 2022 School Committee Meeting

School Committee: June 7, 2022

Bus Registration for the 2022-23 School Year

Dear Parents and Guardians,

School bus registration for the 2022-23 school year is underway. We need to begin to collect data on riders for the fall, so efficient routes may be developed for the start of the school year.

An “early bird” payment discount is available for registrations completed by July 4, 2022.

Information pertaining to school bus transportation may be found on the Chelmsford Public Schools website at the following link:

https://chelmsfordschools.org/departments/transportation/

Please see the attached flyer and registration directions for more details. It is very important that every student is registered to ride the bus regardless of if there is a fee. Prompt registration allows the transportation department to begin building routes for optimum efficiency, and if you are required to pay a fee it saves you money by registering early.

A few reminders about student transportation:

  • ALL STUDENTS who desire to ride the school bus to or from school MUST REGISTER EVERY YEAR, even if they are not required to pay a fee.
  • ALL REGISTRATIONS AND PAYMENTS are processed ON-LINE using MySchoolBucks
  • When registering, each student must be entered separately in MySchoolBucks. This means for families with more than one child riding the bus, a registration must be completed for each child.
  • MySchoolBucks will provide assistance for using their on-line registration system if needed during the registration process. MySchoolBucks support can be reached directly at (855) 832-5226.

REGISTRATION PROCESS

You will need to look up each student in MySchoolBucks and add each student to your account. Looking each student up will require name and LASID or birthdate. Each student must be registered separately. New students to the district please allow 24 hours prior to registering on MySchoolBucks.

Nurses Corner

Dear South Row Families,


The end of the year is quickly approaching. Please see below for some reminders from the health office.


Medication Pick Up:

Medications can be picked up anytime on June 14th and 15th during the hours of 8:30am- 3:00pm. I will also be available for medication pick up on June 16th and 17th from 8:30am-11:00am. All medications that are not picked up by June 17th will be disposed of per the Department of Public Health regulations. Please email me if you prefer that I send your student’s epipen or inhaler home with them in their backpack.


A Message for current Grade 2 Parents:

In accordance with Massachusetts General Law, Chelmsford requires all third grade students to have a current physical on file in our health office. Please keep this in mind when making appointments over the summer for physicals. Incoming third graders should have a physical dated January 2022 to December 2022, and a copy needs to be submitted to the health office by December 2022. You can email updated physicals to me at vandevoordts@chelmsford.k12.ma.us


As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions.


Warmly,

Nurse V.

PTO Corner

Playground Painting Volunteers Needed

Please visit tinyurl.com/srplaygroundmap to sign up to help on either 6/18 or our rain date of 6/26. Painting not your thing? We are also looking for one playground supervisor for each shift to cover anyone who needs to bring their kids with them. Thanks in advance!


Fourth Grade Banner

There will be a congratulatory banner for the graduating 4th graders hung in front of the school this afternoon, Friday, June 3rd. It will remain up through the rest of the school year. Students in the past have taken advantage of the banner for photos and have arranged to get together with friends for group photos. Please take advantage of the banner whenever it is convenient for you outside of school hours. Many thanks to Marguerite Lemmerman for designing our banner, and to Geskus Photography, as this is a free banner that comes with the district's school photo contract.
