* The PTG will host a Santa's Workshop on Monday. Students will be able to purchase small gifts for the immediate family members. The cost for these items will be $.25 each. We recommend placing your child's money in an envelope with their name on them.

* Due to the holiday next week the Friday Family newsletter will resume on Friday, December 31st.

* Please note that will be out of school every morning until 10:00am, through mid-January. Contact Miss Anderson and your child's classroom teacher directly, if you need anything.

Planning Ahead:

* After Care Families - Please note that there will be no After Care available on Friday, January 14th, so staff can participate in CPR training on that day.

* We have a half day of school every Friday during them months of January & February. The January calendar is below. We will also send home a copy next week.

* The School Committee will meet on Monday, January 3rd at 5:00pm. The agenda will be sent as soon as it's available.

A Note from the Nurse:

* Please ask your doctor or clinic to fax COVID results directly to our office or provide us with a paper copy. We are unable to access portals. Thank you.

Finally, on behalf of the entire school staff, we would like to wish all of you a very happy and healthy holiday season. This year has again been very challenging in so many ways, so please know that we are grateful for all of your support and teamwork through it all and thank you for sharing your children with us every day.

Have a fun, restful, and healthy holiday break!


Mrs. Tierney
