It's Go Time for Square 1 Art Work

It's Go Time for Square 1 Art Work

As you should see this week, it is time to get your kids busy creating their masterpieces so you put them on mugs, pot holders, notebooks and so much more. This year this will be done entirely online. The due date is March 12. As always, every child who participates will receive a set of stickers with their design.


Did you know that proceeds from Square 1 Art come back to the PTO and benefit enrichment programs for our children? It's a great way to think about upcoming Mother's Day, Father's Day gifts and support our school.


Here is a link to more information about how the program will work this year.

Taste of Chelmsford - THANK YOU!

The PTO would like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone for your support of Taste of Chelmsford. This year's event has been a great success, despite a very different approach. We weren't quite sure how we would pull off the event this year with COVID restrictions but creativity and a lot of support from the area sponsors, businesses, and all of you who purchased tickets, the event continued to be noteworthy. We are looking forward to announcing this month's winners each day in March. Winners will be announced via Facebook and on the Taste of Chelmsford website. Hopefully you will be one of them!
