News and Notes from Estabrook School | March 9, 2017
We are just over a week away from ESTAFEST, the Estabrook PTO's largest fundraiser and a community event that is the highlight of early spring here in Lexington. With food, games, raffles, a silent auction and more, there is something for everyone at Estafest!
For more information, click here to visit the official PTO Estafest website. Be on the lookout for information coming home from the PTO, and check out the various ways you can get involved as well.
I look forward to seeing you at what will be my FIRST Estafest on Saturday, March 18th!

Parents share feedback on homework
Thank you to all the parents who joined Mr. LaBroad and Maureen Kavanaugh for the Homework Focus Group on March 8. Parents were able to share their feedback on Estabrook's move to a homework plan with a focus on independent reading and optional At Home Learning Calendars. Your thoughts are were invaluable as we weigh our assigned homework.
In the weeks ahead, parents will be invited to complete a survey on the topic.
