Dear Centerville Families,
The Barnstable Education Foundation has granted our school multiple grants this year. We will be taking our grades 1-3 to see the ballet and we are about to purchase some instruments for our music classrooms. In past years, the Barnstable Education Foundation has purchased robotics kits and funded our Astro Buddies Program. As you can see, the BEF does so much for us here at Centerville and across the school district. The BEF was founded by my predecessor, Sheila Burns, and this weekend, the BEF is holding a fundraiser that Sheila organized—the BEF WALK/RUN FOR SUCCESS. I am writing to ask that you consider either having you and/or your child participate to help raise money for this organization that continues to give back to our schools from grades k-12. There are both student and adult events and several of our staff members are participating. The best part is that it will begin across the street from the school. If you cannot participate, please consider signing up to make a donation @ www.semcsports.com .
A great big shout out to our kindergarten teachers and their students and families for participating in their walking event held last Saturday. What fantastic weather you all had to enjoy! Thank you so much for being good citizens of Centerville by bringing canned goods to donate to a local food bank. There are so many people who are in need and your kindness will help make the world a better place.
The end of the first trimester is almost upon us. Parents please mark your calendars because December 8 & 10 are half days for parent/teacher conferences. These days will be used to meet with you to discuss your child’s progress at this point in our school year. There will be no after school care on these days, so if you are participating in our program, please plan accordingly.
We have had three parents volunteer to run activities at recess. We are always looking for more! If you are interested, please contact me. You must be CORI checked in order to participate. The feedback from students has been very positive. Thank you to all of our volunteers who help make our school a great place for students!
