New Blog On Behavior Interventions At Home

Hello parents,

My name is Paula Bartalamia and I am sharing with you a blog as the Behavior Interventionist at Shawsheen Elementary school! Some of you may not know much about my role at Shawsheen but this blog is to share my background and experience with dealing with a variety of behaviors.
The blog will be updated with articles, activities, and more, for parents to use as resources at home. Please feel free to contact me with specific subject matters or if any questions arise!
Thank you and I hope you enjoy!

Early Release On Friday


Friday, March 10th is an early release day. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 and no lunches will be served.

Have a Great Weekend!

Post From Mrs.Gibbs, Adjustment Counselor

A book for parents to read with their kids about anxiety. Kids can do amazing things with the right information. Understanding why anxiety feels the way it does, and where the physical symptoms come from, is a powerful step in turning anxiety around. Anxiety explained, kids empowered! This book has JUST been published and each kid I’ve read it with responds so well – easy to understand and just the right amount of information!

March News

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for helping your children succeed through another month of school. We had snow and we had sun! I am glad that the students are now able to get outside and enjoy the weather during recess. The students have also been enjoying the Read Across America week theme days this week. They have been very creative. To continue on with our kindness themes,  we are going to set up our Golden Bucket to fill with friendship coins and a notice will go home on Friday with a blank coin. We hope that students fill this out to return them to school. We have a lot of upcoming dates for the month of March. Please review the calendar, notices and the principal blog for any updates.

Upcoming Events and News

Good Morning,

Thank you to parents for shoveling through the snow and making sure your children arrived to school during these past few weeks. I can't believe it is already school vacation week. Please take time to enjoy your children.

When the children arrive back at school we will be have Read Across America Week. This will be a fun week where everyday is a different theme based on Dr. Seuss books. Please see below for the days. A notice is also going home today and we will do reminders daily for the students. Please do not go out and purchase anything for these days, just use what you have around the house.

Another event to look out for through the PAC is the Shawsheen/West Trivia night which will be held on March 10th. They are still looking for businesses to be sponsors. If you or anyone you know is interested please contact the PAC. If you would like to sponsor, please contact Sharon Lagunilla at There are a few tables left as well. 

Wishing you all a great vacation week. We will see you all back on 2/27/17.

Check out our Kindness Hearts. They are growing. Feel free to continue to have your children send them in. We will introduce a new kindness theme in March!

Take care,

Mrs. King
