News and Notes from Estabrook School | April 6, 2017
Dear Estabrook Families,
The signs of spring are all around us. The mounds of snow in the front circle are nearly gone, thanks to the climbing temperatures and days of April showers. The increasing number of lost and found jackets means more students are able to shed them at recess. MCAS testing is well underway throughout the building, and parents are streaming through the doors each day on their way to Spring Parent Conferences. All the while, students are demonstrating an ever-increasing degree of autonomy and ownership of their learning, their friendships, and their responsibilities in school and out. It is a great time of year!
As we prepare for our April Vacation April 17-21, I wish your family the best for a fun, enjoyable, and hopefully warm break!
