Good Morning Families,
Thank you so much for all you do to help our students come in with a smile on their faces & our remote learning friends as well. It is so great to see the innovative ways in which teachers are incorporating the students who are at home learning into the classrooms from participation to check-ins.
Next week we are entering into March. It will almost be a full year since the pandemic started. We want to take this time to remind students about our 3 R’s and how their resilience, responsibility and respect have helped them to get through. During our ALL SCHOOL MEETING on March 24th we will be celebrating this along with other topics.
Read A Thon
March 2nd will be the last day to log in the readathon minutes. I will be going around the building two more times to hand out rewards. The students have been so impressive with this and I want to thank the PAC & families who have helped to make this possible. As of right now the West & the Shawsheen combined have raised 1800 dollars. You can find log in information on your childs google classroom.
Read Across America Week
Every year we celebrate read across america week. The students can wear certain clothes & participate whether at home or at school. PLEASE do not go out & buy anything. This is voluntary & just for fun. Here is the link for the week.
Mindfulness & the Brain
Explore and learn! What Mindfulness is What Mindfulness isn’t. Practice & reflect the benefit of mindfulness. Please join Erin O'Connor from Happy Human Mindfulness & learn how mindfulness changes the brain & learn some simple practices. The flyer is attached & this is paid for through our safe & supportive grant. It is 3/18/21 from 6:30-7:30 via zoom. A zoom link will be sent out prior to Shawsheen families.
Also the week before the teachers will get one hour of PD on this topic & all grade 3 students will be getting 30 minutes with Erin O’Connor for a lesson on the same topic.
Diaper Drive for Gifts of Love
Every month as you know we try to do something to support the community. For the month of March we will be accepting donations at the school for diapers & wipes any sizes. Attached is the flyer. Our shawsheen leaders will be helping with this. You may see them outside during car rider holding up signs to promote it! We will take donations directly from your child at drop off or off the bus. Thank you so much. The flyer is attached and also includes the flyer for a community drop off.
Thank you all and have a great weekend.
