MARCH 2021

Dear Discovery School Families,

March has come in like a lion with this frigid cold and wind, but next week it sounds like the lamb will make an appearance with 50 degree weather! We are inching toward spring and warmer, sunnier days. We are looking forward to getting outside more often and enjoying nature.

This month we have two early release days on March 25th and 26th for parent/teacher conferences. Your child/ren's classroom teacher will be in touch to schedule a conference time.

Our first ever virtual all school meeting last month was a huge success! Thank you to everyone for your support while we tried something new. I am hoping to have another one in the coming weeks. More details and information on when this will happen will be sent out soon.

Greenfield Public Schools has had a change in leadership since my last newsletter. The new Interim Superintendent, Dr. Judith Houle, has jumped right in to help our district through the next several months. Please read the Superintendent's update located on the GPS website, This is a great place to go for information and updates from the district.
