PAW Pride: Self-Direct

We have been meeting with students and talking about October's Capturing Kids' Hearts Character word: Self-Direct. Self-Direction is important in many situations. Having self-direction impacts work ethic and overall success in life. We have enjoyed talking about various athletes and celebrities who never gave up - even when things got really challenging - and have been extremely successful, when they could have just as easily quit. We have loved the discussions and the empathy that students have shown as they watched and learned how people big and small persevered through hard times and made the BEST out of every situation.

Breakfast is served daily from 7:30-7:50. Instruction begins at 8:00. Students should be finished eating breakfast by then so they can begin instruction.

Link to COVID Info - FAQs

If you have any questions regarding COVID guidelines, please visit our district website:

Breakaway Lanyards

Parents, if you send your child to school with a mask lanyard, please make sure they have a breakaway lanyard instead of the standard, solid band lanyard. The breakaway option is much safer for our children. Thank you for your help with this!

Water bottles

Students need to have their water bottles sent to school with them daily. They are encouraged to get drinks throughout the day after recess, P.E., etc. They are especially important this school year because water fountains are closed. We do have water bottle refilling stations in the school. Please make sure to label your child's water bottle with his/her name.

Thank you for your help with this!

Chromebook Safety

  • Cabot Public Schools has taken measures to ensure that district issued Chromebooks are safe to use.
  • The Chromebooks you received from the district are controlled by the Cabot Public Schools network.
  • Once a student logs into the device, the district can track how it is being used, where it is located, and control what is being downloaded.
  • GoGuardian has been installed on each Chromebook. This application restricts access to things on the internet that are inappropriate. Students will only be able to install approved software on their Chromebook. However, no filter will catch everything.
  • Please continue to monitor your child's use with a Chromebook.

Monthly Birthday Celebration

Our day of celebration for October birthdays will be held on:

Friday, October 29th

We will not be celebrating with treats on any other day of the month. We have very strict guidelines that allot only a certain amount of days to be able to have treats throughout the year. If you choose to send treats, please reach out to your child's teacher to discuss types of snacks to bring. Please drop treats off in the office and someone will take them down to the classroom. Parents will not be able to celebrate in the classroom. Thank you for your cooperation!
