MCAS update

We are in week 2 of the Language Arts MCAS.  The students have been wonderful. It’s not easy to take any test, never mind a high stakes one like the MCAS.  Thank you being mindful of the testing days and for helping your son or daughter be well rested each morning.  The teachers have also been wonderful.  It hasn’t been easy for them either as they have had to adjust their teaching schedules to accommodate the testing.  I think we will all be grateful for next week when the testing is over.  Hopefully, April will bring warm sunny days and a chance for us to start getting outside at lunch again. 
Also as we move into April we will be thinking more and more about next year.  Transition meetings have already started. We have held meetings at each elementary school for the grade 5 transition and the high school staff has been great about reaching out to our students and parents for the grade 8 transition.  Please check Edline for more upcoming transition information as well as important upcoming dates to mark on your calendar.  As a reminder, you are always welcome to join us at our PTO meetings held on the first Wednesday of each month. Our next meeting will be held on April 6th at 7:00.  If you have any questions or if Doug or I can be of assistance please don’t hesitate to call.        Cathy & Doug
