Kindergarten Information Night

It's that time of year again when we start thinking about next year's KINDERGARTENERS! If you know anyone who will be entering K for the 2023-2024 school year, please let them know about the Information Night on March 2nd. It will be held at each elementary school for their incoming students.

SES Spotlight

On Monday, February 27th, SES will have their turn to spotlight some of the great things happening here! Lynne Marcet (Instructional Coach), Amy FitzGerald (Grade 3 teacher), Tanya Kleinebreil (Grade 3 teacher) and Carla Crocker (Grade 4 teacher) along with some of their students, will be sharing the work they are doing with student-centered coaching cycles. This small group will serve as a representation of our cycles in action and our ongoing focus on teaching and learning. I cannot say enough about the good work everyone is doing and am excited to showcase our work!

Be sure to tune in to the school committee meeting on February 27th at 6:30PM to cheer us on!

Push Notifications for SES

As I mentioned in my last week's email, you should be receiving a push notification when the newsletter is published on the site/app. Several people emailed me and shared they were not getting the notifications. That feedback was helpful. Please be sure you have selected STUDLEY in your settings, so you are kept up to date of all the posts and day to day happenings. If you need any help with this, please reach out.

Newsletter Content Ideas and Suggestions

We want to hear from you!

We want our weekly newsletters to be informational, so our families are kept in the loop of important school and district updates. We also want it to serve as a glimpse into our world.

SO - if you have any ideas or suggestions that you would like to hear or learn about our school, please fill out this form. It will help us shape our updates to be meaningful and worthwhile.

Important Information about MassHealth and SNAP Benefits:

In response to the COVID-19, MassHealth put protections in place that prevented members’ MassHealth coverage ending, and qualifying Massachusetts households began to receive extra SNAP at the beginning of each month to buy food. Due to recent action by the federal government, these protections and extra benefits will be ending soon. Please visit the Welcome Center website for more information on what you can do now.

Last Day of School

As of now, the last day of school (grades 1-11) is scheduled for June 14th, which is an early release. This is the date if there are NO cancellations. The district calendar shows the 22nd would be the LAST day of school if we have 5 cancellations. I wanted to clarify as this can be confusing.

The last day of kindergarten is scheduled for June 2nd, which is a FULL day. The last day of K would move to June 9th only IF we had five (5) or more cancellations.
