Good Morning,

I hope that everyone survived the storm and managed through the power outages over the past day or so. I wanted to send out some upcoming dates and reminders.

As you are aware today is an early release day due to the teachers having a curriculum day in the afternoon. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 noon and no lunches will be served.

In addition, we have started our reading celebration month with the Dr. Seuss themed week and our Mustache bulletin board. We have filled the cafeteria with mustaches of all books that students have recommended to other students. I believe we have over 250 recommendations. Next time you come to the cafe, check it out! Next week during lunches the students will be viewing a montage of videos of all there teachers talking about reading and their favorite books. After that I will be sending out how you can submit a video to the school with your child.

On Wednesday, we will be having our make up for the second grade concert. Information was sent home to families on the concert. We look forward to the performances! Also on Wednesday we are encouraging students to wear blue and white or their shawsheen t-shirts to show Wilmington Pride. If your child has to wear specifics for the concert, they are welcome to bring their t-shirt in for before or after the concert to wear.

Some other upcoming dates:
Report cards will be distributed at the end of the day on Monday, March 19th.

Parent Conferences and early release day are on Thursday, March 22nd

Thank you all and have an enjoyable and safe weekend,

Mrs. King

Good Afternoon Families,

We have had a very busy week leading up to vacation. The students participated in Cupid Cafe, Dental Health Program and the 100th day of school. The students really enjoyed making Valentines for the Senior Center and other members of the community. Thank you our cafeteria workers for putting together cupid’s cafe!
Coming up right when we get back from Vacation week will be our Dr. Seuss week. Attached is the information about all the different days we will be having. In addition we will be kicking off our March Reading Celebration Month. As part of the celebration, staff will be making short video clips of what they like to read and where. We will be sharing this montage with the students on ALL SCHOOL meeting that week. Once we kick it off, families will have an opportunity to upload videos and do the same. More to come!

We had a great enrichment program from Todd Waites the musician. The students really enjoyed the performance and learned a lot about being different and never giving up toward your goals. It was very inspiring. 

We continue to work on rolling out our PBIS program. Within the next month we will be rolling out the Positive Reward System for students. Our PBIS team is finalizing some of the details and we will have another All School Meeting in March to discuss what that will look like. In addition, at the February 28th school committee meeting at 7:00 p.m.  we are having students and staff present about our 3 R's of responsibility, respect and resilience. Please feel free to come and support our school during the meeting or watch on T.V!
