Greetings from the Foreign Language Room!

I have updated my website and added an "Our Work" page so that I could include links to the 3rd and 4th grade class videos that were on display at the Student Showcase this week. If you were unable to attend or had trouble with the Wifi, please check out the links to these great videos.

Announcements from our Friends


Come and explore all of the FUN opportunities on the ocean this summer with Seaside Education Adventure (SEA)! SEA is a 5-day ocean experience course based out of Manchester, MA. It runs from 8 AM until 12 PM and the program explores our regional coasts using a 24-foot Novi Skiff. We can only accommodate 6 passengers each week, so register now!

This exciting, hands-on program for youth (ages 8–18) not only highlights the local (and global!) importance of the ocean, but also offers many educational activities for exploration and enjoyment. We will get our feet wet, our hands dirty, and our minds reeling, while we learn about the vital role the ocean plays in our daily lives. We will see first-hand how the marine biology and ecology that we take for granted are interconnected with, and influenced by, human actions.

SEA’s skilled and passionate directors have deep roots in the community and a love for the sea. In collaboration with the MERSD Green Team, Manchester Parks and Rec, and Seaside Sustainability, we offer a unique and exciting approach to exploring the marine ecosystems surrounding Manchester Harbor and beyond. In this program, you will learn about oceanography, marine stewardship, and ecosystem balance. Each participant will receive a SEA T-shirt, and will be proud to show off their SEAtificate of Qualification!

Click HERE or the PDF attached to register or to learn more information about the program! Also, it’s important that you know that you’re registering through Manchester Parks and Rec. If you have any questions, please contact Eric Magers at
