Dear Pawsome Families,
On Wednesday we celebrated Education Support Professionals Day which is a day we give special thanks to all of our support professionals that work with our children each day. Our fabulous PTO also provided some tasty snacks to thank all staff at Loring for the continued hard work they do each day. We couldn't have a more supportive PTO, a special thanks to all of you!
I encourage you to discuss gratitude at home with your children and to think about all of the things you are grateful and thankful for. I have included a few links that may be helpful.

Loring to Loring Gift Card Drive
We are currently collecting gift cards to help out families in need right here in our own Loring School community. The Loring-to-Loring Gift Card Drive is a school-wide social action program designed to help Loring families who are experiencing financial difficulty.
Gift cards will be given to families for necessary items such as groceries and other essentials. This year gift cards from retailers like Target and Walmart are in the greatest need. Examples of other retailers that have also been helpful for families in the past are Stop & Shop, Shaws, and CVS.
If you wish to contribute, please click here to sign up.
You can send your gift card(s) to school via red folder in an envelope labeled "Loring-to-Loring/Attn: Karen Blumberg". Please send in your gift card(s) by Friday, December 2nd.
Please contact Loring School Counselor, Karen Blumberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-579--0870 ext. 4011 with any questions or if your family would benefit from help through the Loring-to-Loring Gift Card Drive.
All inquiries and gift card distributions are kept confidential.
Thank you for your generosity!
Sudbury’s Social Studies Curriculum
Cold Weather is here!!
However, for students to enjoy being outside when it’s cold, they need the right gear – hats, gloves/mittens, snow pants, snow boots, and warm coats. If there is a financial hardship securing these items, please reach out to me.
If the playground is full of snow, which is quite common in the winter, students have to have boots and snow pants on to play there. Otherwise, they play on the blacktop. This is because students have a hard time learning if their feet and bodies are wet from being in the snow without the right gear.
Lunch & Recess Volunteers
We cannot say how thankful we are for our Lunch and Recess Volunteers! With that being said, we still need you!! The PTO and Loring staff are looking for volunteers to help during student recess so staff can meet for curriculum planning. Although covering recess is the main priority, if you are able to help move the students into the cafe and stay through lunch, that would be great!
We are looking for 2 volunteers per grade on Tuesdays and Fridays. Dates and times are listed in the signup genius on the volunteer page of the PTO Website. If you are not able to stay for lunch, please state that in the notes.
To SIGN UP, please click here. Please click MORE for additional details.
If you have any questions, please email Kerri Brien at email@example.com.
Reporting Students Absent, Tardy or Changing Dismissal Plan
If you want to email Loring_office@sudbury.k12.ma.us please make sure to include your child's full name, teacher, and all pertinent information.
Please know that you will still need to scan your child in if they are coming in tardy or out if they are leaving early when you arrive at school. Look at the first form as our notification system and the second as our sign-in/sign-out system.
If you have any questions or suggestions on making this process run smoother feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Loring Core Values
At Loring School, we are PAWSOME because we show our Core Values! These values are part of everyday life at Loring and reinforced in the classroom, on the playground and all around school. Students are taught the meaning of each word and how they make us better students and citizens.
Respect ~ Responsibility ~ Caring ~ Best Effort
The Loring Pledge
The Loring Pledge is said every morning during announcements. Loring students embody our pledge and we hope this stays with them not only when they are at school but home as well.
