A Note from Mr. Shaffer

Dear Worcester Family,


I hope this message finds you safe and in good health!


I am collaborating with the other elementary principals and with our Worcester Team to explore ideas on how we can stay better connected through pictures and short videos. We hope to establish a theme each week and invite all members of our learning community (teachers, staff, students, and families) to capture the theme with a picture or short video message. Stat tuned . . . more information will be shared next week!


I met with our teachers and staff virtually throughout the day yesterday. They miss our students and families greatly! They are also looking forward to launching virtual learning via Google Classroom on Tuesday, March 31st. Please see the codes below to access our Special Area Google Classrooms.


  • 4th grade: ccac4jb
  • 3rd grade: o44fy6d
  • 2nd grade: glpyqm4
  • 1st grade: ut57pc5

Thank you for your support, patience, and kindness! Together, we will overcome the challenges of today and create a brighter tomorrow.


With Sincere Thoughts,


Principal Shaffer (and the Worcester Team)

Encourage, Empower, and Inspire

Thank you to all of the Worcester BEEs for encouraging our students, empowering our families, and for inspiring me each and everyday!


There any many lessons that can be learned from the honeybee. For me, the importance of community and working together for the greater good is the lesson that resonates most!
