Walk and Roll Wednesday
Walk and Roll Wednesday’s are back! Join us as we walk and roll to school every Wednesday morning. Our 2023/2024 Kick-Off Party will be on October 11th, we will celebrate students who walked or rolled to school! Let’s reduce our environmental impact and come together to get out of our cars and school buses as neighbors and friends to walk, bike, or roll to school! Walking and rolling to school starts the day off in a positive, healthy way and builds independence and a sense of community. Please click here for more information about Walk and Roll Wednesday or email email@example.com with any questions! The suggested meetup spot will be Atkinson Common for Bresnahan students (more info to come on this-keep an eye out!)
Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC)
Consider joining the Newburyport Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC)! This group facilitates collaboration between families, district staff, the School Committee, and the community in order to promote inclusion, understanding of, respect for, and support of all children with neurodiverse needs in our community. These meetings are hosted monthly and open to all. Please visit the district website to learn more.
On Tuesday, November 7th from 8:45 - 9:15, we will host an assembly to honor our Veterans. If anyone in your family (parent, grandparent, or other close family member) is a Veteran, they are welcome to attend the assembly. Our students would love to sing to you and thank you for your service. Please RSVP on this Google Doc we can plan seating for our guests. If you have any questions, please reach out to our school librarian, Renee Ames (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our veterans and guests do not need to go through the CORI and Fingerprinting process but will need to sign in through the Main Office/Door 1.
