FAMILY EDITION: March 13, 2023
Good morning Barbieri School Families,
Vice Principal Lev and I spent last Wednesday with our Hawk Helpers providing Kindergarten tours for prospective K families. It was great to be facilitating tours in person and have our long standing tradition of Hawk Helpers facilitating the tours. I want to send a special thank you to the families of our Hawk Helpers for bringing them back to school to help with evening tours and then picking them back up! We know every family has their own evening routines and carpool responsibilities and that this only added to your Wednesday to-do list. Vice Principal Lev and I are so grateful to you all!! MIL GRACIAS POR SU APOYO!
Please read the MCAS testing dates below. Vice Principal Lev created a calendar for all grades, areas being tested and testing dates. As mentioned before, we will also be providing reminders as testing dates approach!
Gracias a todos,
Social Workers' Appreciation Week!🥰🎈💐
Ms. Tracy and Ms. Sykes we are so thankful to have you both as colleagues! The amount of support that you give daily to our students, families, colleagues and our support team is incredible!!! Thank you for being part of our school and for being AMAZING!!!!
KINDERGARTEN TOURS 2023👏
Our 5th Grade Hawk Helpers did a FANTASTIC job providing tours for our families last Wednesday at 1:30PM and then volunteering their evening time and returning to facilitate tours at 6:30PM. When families want to learn about our school, there is no better way than to hear it first hand from a student. I heard them answer questions, point out details about our schools' procedures and processes and inform families about the details in the Kindergarten classrooms. I am so impressed with how much they remembered about their K year! THANK YOU TO OUR HAWK HELPERS!!!!
THANK YOU TO OUR FAMILIES FOR SUPPORTING US AND BRINGING OUR HAWKS BACK IN THE EVENING HOURS TO FACILITATE TOURS

Barbieri Drama Club Presents: HONK! 🦆
El Club de Teatro de Barbieri Presenta: HONK!
Barbieri Drama Club presents HONK! JR. a delightful re-telling of Hans Christian Andersen's classic The Ugly Duckling. After being ridiculed by his father DRAKE, his family, and his neighbors because of his odd, gawky looks, UGLY leaves the barnyard in search of happiness, only to be pursued by a hungry CAT. Lonely and afraid, Ugly must find his way home, with only his loving mother IDA searching for him. On his journey, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out that being different is not such a bad thing to be.
El club de Teatro de Barbieri presenta HONK! JR. una versión encantadora del cuento clásico de Hans Christian Andersen, El patito feo. Después de ser ridiculizado por su padre DRAKE, por su familia y por sus vecinos debido a su aspecto extraño y torpe, UGLY abandona su hogar en el corral en busca de la felicidad, y de pronto es perseguido por una GATA hambrienta. Solito y asustado, Ugly debe encontrar el camino de regreso a casa, donde solo su querida madre, IDA, lo está buscando. En su viaje, Ugly se encuentra con una multitud de personajes únicos y descubre que ser diferente no es tan malo.

MCAS Year 2023
During MCAS testing season please ensure that your child has a good night's sleep and full breakfast! Please remember that breakfast is available at school for all students! ALL STUDENTS SHOULD ARRIVE TO SCHOOL ON TIME!
STE- Science Technology and Engineering
ELA- English Language Arts
During testing ALL ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE PROHIBTED. This includes cell phones and apple watches, etc. Please be sure that you discuss with your child that if they chose to still bring these devices to school they will need to give these devices to their classroom teacher/testing proctor BEFORE testing begins and they will receive them AFTER the testing session has ended. This is a non-negotiable. If any device is set off (rings, vibrates, etc.) during testing we risk having to invalidate tests.
Thank you for all of your support at home and for understanding!
Second Graders at Barbieri
Ms. Webber's class making a hat to protect our faces after being stranded on an island. They all had to test out materials and figure out the best material to absorb liquid, stiffness for the rim, and softness around our face.
The class loved it! They were engaged, talking quietly and fixing their hats. :-)
Message from Ms. Rebecca S., Wraparound Coordinator
Hi Barbieri Families,
I wanted to remind you all that Wraparound services are available to families here at Barbieri School. For those who are unfamiliar with Wraparound services, it is a family-driven, team-based process for planning and providing support and strategies for success. Through the wraparound process, the team creates a plan designed to meet the unique and holistic needs of the family. These services include connecting families to community resources here in the Metrowest area. Each wraparound team comprises the youth, the parents/caregivers, and community partners, who regularly meet to implement and monitor the action plan.
To receive these services, families must fill out a Wraparound referral. I will be attaching the link below to do so.
If you have questions regarding Wraparound services at Barbieri, please feel free to email me, Rebecca Salguero, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (774) 410-3775.
Thank you all, and I look forward to connecting!
Barbieri Wraparound Coordinator
Hola familias Barbieri,
Quería recordarles a todos que los servicios de Wraparound están disponibles para las familias aquí en la Escuela Barbieri. Para aquellos que no están familiarizados con los servicios de Wraparound, se trata de un proceso basado en equipos impulsado por la familia para planificar y brindar apoyo y estrategias para el éxito. A través del proceso integral, el equipo crea un plan diseñado para satisfacer las necesidades únicas y holísticas de la familia. Estos servicios incluyen conectar a las familias con los recursos de la comunidad aquí en el área Metrowest. Cada equipo integral está compuesto por jóvenes, padres/cuidadores y socios comunitarios, quienes se reúnen regularmente para implementar y revisar el plan de acción.
Para recibir estos servicios, las familias deben completar una remisión de Wraparound. Voy a adjuntar el enlace de abajo para hacerlo.
Si tiene preguntas sobre los servicios de Wraparound en Barbieri, no dude en enviarme un correo electrónico, Rebecca Salguero, a email@example.com o llamarme al (774) 410-3775.
¡Gracias a todos, y espero conectarme!

Read Across America MONTH!📚📕📗
Message from our Literacy Coach and Reading Teachers
Dr. Lauren Foley, Bilingual Literacy Coach
Ms. Luz Vallejo-Spillane, Bilingual Reading Teacher, Grades K-2
Ms. Margaret Fawley, Bilingual Reading Teacher, Grades 3-5
Read Across America falls on March 2nd. However, here at Barbieri, we are celebrating reading throughout the whole month of March!
As a school, we will see if we can get to 50,000 minutes of reading this month!
Since the character trait of the month is confidence, we will work on building confident readers! To celebrate this, our spirit day on March 31st will be to dress to impress and strut with your favorite book!
As a class, please keep track of the amount of time you are reading (read aloud, independent reading, etc.). Keep track on your reading thermometer! Every week, the minutes across the school will be tallied for a sum of the week.
At home, please tally your minutes on your calendar. Prizes will be given out to classrooms and individuals who are reading the most!
