Congratulations to our 5th grade students! This week's Farewell ceremony was a wonderful celebration of the students' time at Cambridge School. We wish them all the best as they move on to Middle School!

Thank you to Girl Scout Troop #80370 under the leadership of Mrs. Lauren Lepore and Mrs. Lisa Bodnar! The girls completed a project to rejuvenate our butterfly garden and it looks absolutely wonderful. They also consulted with Mrs. Lisa Finlayson, who provided her expert advice! Thank you to all the members for an awesome service project!! (See the picture below!)

Thank you for your support and enjoy the weekend.

Due to the overwhelming response from the wonderful parent volunteers, we will have many visitors at the building on Field Day. For the safety and security of our students, we are limiting all visitors to those who are registered as official volunteers. Please do not walk the grounds unless you have an official "Field Day Volunteer" sticker. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Should you need to be at the building for any reason, you must register in the main office and we will assist you with whatever is needed.

Also, PLEASE remember to...

  • Put sun block on at home before coming to school.
  • Wear a hat to protect from the heat.
  • Remember to wear your sneakers
  • Bring a disposable water bottle and perhaps a change of clothes.
  • Most important – Be prepared for a great day!


The district has published a letter on the online Friday Folder regarding how to receive your child's placement information for the 2014-2015 school year. Once again, they will be testing email addresses to ensure that everything is accurate. Please be sure to read this important letter for the details.

What to look for when you buy sunscreen.

  • Pick a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against UV-A and UV-B rays and has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.
  • Look for a waterproof brand if you will be sweating or swimming.
  • Try a sunscreen with different chemicals if your skin reacts to the one you are using. Not all sunscreens have the same ingredients.
  • More expensive does not mean better. Although a costly brand might feel better or smell better, it is not necessarily more effective than a less expensive product.
  • Be aware of the expiration dates as some sunscreen ingredients might degrade over time.
  • When to apply sunscreen.
  • Apply sunscreen approximately 30 minutes before being in the sun so that it can be absorbed by the skin and less likely to wash off when you perspire.
  • Remember to reapply sunscreen after swimming and exercise.
  • How to apply sunscreen.
  • Shake well before to mix particles that might be clumped up in the container.
  • Be sure to apply enough sunscreen. As a rule of thumb, use an ounce (a handful) to cover your entire body.
  • Apply thickly and thoroughly.
  • Use on all parts of your skin exposed to the sun, including ears, back of knees, and tops of feet.

Have a happy and healthy summer!
