News & Announcements

  • With MCAS season upon us, I wanted to be sure that everyone knew that school breakfasts are available to all students on testing days. This can help give students a little bit of a boost and help them do their best.
  • Preschool and Kindergarten Registration: If you have, or know someone who has, children eligible for our preschool or kindergarten programs, mark your calendars. Registration will be held on Friday, April 29, 2022. Preschool registration will be from 9:30-10:30 and Kindergarten registration will be from 11:00-12:00. Registration packets will be available soon. Please note: Current PK and K students will not have school that day.
  • As the weather gets warmer, please encourage your child to check the Lost & Found. There are a lot of stray hats, gloves, etc that have been shed at recess and left behind.
  • Yesterday's Conference day is being rescheduled for Thursday, April 14th. It will be a 12:30 dismissal on that day and conferences will go until 7:00 pm.
