A new month is right around the corner! Join us for our next meeting on Thursday, November 3rd at 7 pm in the school library.

Boosterthon Fun Run

We are SOOOOO close to reaching our goal of $15,000. Thank you so much to our families who have registered and shared their donation pages to get us to this point! Go to to register your child if you haven't already done so.

This weekend we have a BONUS PRIZE OPPORTUNITY for all students. It’s for this weekend only, so time is limited to earn this extra reward. The classroom that collects the most NEW donations over the weekend will have a class pizza party!

There are still a few volunteer spots open for the Fun Run if you’d like to help!

Please note that in the event of inclement weather, the students will be doing a Glow Run in the school gym. Check your email for a copy of the outdoor schedule and the indoor (rain) schedule from Mrs. Sardella.

Thank you all for your support!

Ohana Trunk or Treat

Our Trunk or Treat event is this Friday from 5:30 to 7 pm and we are so excited to get spooky with our Ohana! If you would like to participate with your vehicle, there are still plenty of spots left. Sign up here: Keep in mind that all vehicles need to be in the parking lot in front of the school before 5:15 and must remain parked until the event ends at 7 pm!

Want to trick or treat with just your family? Show up any time between 5:30 and 7 pm and park along the road leading to the back of the school. All Mulready students, staff, and family are welcome!

Every April, we celebrate our autistic students with Blue Day. This year, we are adding Red Day this Thursday, October 27th, as a way to celebrate our students who persevere in their learning despite having dyslexia.

Each week a student in Mrs. Regh's and Mrs. Calvanese's class chooses an experiment. The student follows a format for a lab report and review it with the class. The student then performs the experiment, reviews the outcome with the class, and then answers questions. This week, children in both classes chose the same experiment - the lava lamp experiment. This shows how oil and water don't mix. Oil, water, food color, and an Alka Seltzer tablet were combined. The oil began to bubble like a volcano. Then, round balls formed. When the alka seltzer tablet and water are combined, they create a gas called carbon dioxide which is all the bubbling you see. These bubbles carry the colored water to the top of the oil where they pop and the water then falls back down.


The Celtics won there opening game due to the spirit the students and staff showed to cheer them on! Looking forward to seeing our Bruins and Celtics in the playoffs!

When you are dropping off or picking up your child, please pull up as far as you can and as close to each other as you safely can. We want to alleviate any traffic on Cox Street. Please do not block the entrance/exit on Cox Street and the bus entrance/exit. Children should exit and enter cars on the right side of your vehicle. Do not exit your car to help your child. Staff will assist them.


We have three tables of sweatshirts, jackets, lunchboxes and backpacks. Please label your child's belongings. That way we can be sure that the items get back to their owners.

Also, if your child is missing clothing or a backpack or lunchbox, feel free to stop by and check out our tables.


Hats and hoodies are not allowed to be worn during the school day. The exception is that hats can be worn on some spirit days. There are children who are hiding inside of their hoodies in the classrooms.

Cell phones are not allowed to be seen or heard in school. If a child has one, it must be turned off and not seen or heard (kept in backpack). If it is seen or heard, it will be sent to the office and have to be picked-up by a parent. All phone calls from students will go through the office. Cell phones can only be used at CHAPS and the Boys and Girls Club.

No electronics are allowed to be used on the bus.
