Warren Weekly Update
December 9, 2022
Our students had the opportunity to have our friends from Ashland High School come to Warren and share cheer with a winter concert. The students were an amazing audience demonstrating our core values and enjoy the talents of our older students.
Next Friday, report cards will be sent home with all students. Also as a reminder, December 23rd is an early release at 1:15. Lunch will be served.
Please see the attached flyer regarding our upcoming Drop Everything and Play at Warren School. Maria Montessori created the famous quote, “Play is the work of the child.” All students will have the opportunity to play a game with friends at one point during the school day. Please see the flyer below for additional information.
Save the date for an upcoming shared parent coffee with Warren and Mindess on Wednesday, February 1, at 9:30 AM: Ashland's elementary school Principals invite parents and caregivers to attend this in-person conversation about managing your child's stress, anxiety, and worries. Linda Price, a child/adolescent therapist from Minding Your Mind, will provide a framework for understanding your child's stress and anxiety with practical guidance on how you can be a support. Leave with resources and new skills. There will be plenty of time for your questions.
Have a great weekend,

Please attach the paper with your child’s hand’s outline to the order form and submit the money (either cash or check) by Wednesday, December 14, 2022. Thank you!
