A Note From Mrs. Looman

  • Thank you to all who came out to Open House. It was wonderful to see you all and see the excitement on our students' faces as they showed you around the building and introduced you to the adults in their day. A huge thank you to the PTO and all of the volunteers who helped pull of another successful Community Day! And thanks to all who purchased mums, dinner, and CCS swag!
  • If you are interested in CCS swag but did not have the opportunity to purchase any the other night, it is still available. T-shirts, hats, and sweatshirts can be purchased in the front office. Please see the flyer below for pricing. The PTO is also taking orders for sizes that may have sold out and will be placing another order soon.
  • Don't forget....tonight is Instrumental Rental Night at Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School. If your child is taking instrument lessons and participating in the band this year, be sure to check out the flyer below regarding instrument rentals by Gerry's Music.

Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC)

About Mohawk Trail SEPAC

The Special Education Parent Advisory Council is an advisory group led by parents within our community. We are looking to support each other and help the school district to better serve its students. The SEPAC is open to all caregivers within the district with an IEP or 504 plan, and to interested members of the community. Please reach out to us to learn more!

SEPAC meetings

We meet monthly via Zoom. Upcoming meetings: Sept 28, Oct 23, Nov 27 at 6:30 pm

We welcome caregivers, staff, and interested members of the community to learn about SEPAC and meet local families. The public meeting will be followed by a private caregiver support discussion.
