Spring is almost here!  Even as the temperatures are gradually warming, please remember to dress your child for outdoor recess.  This includes hat, gloves/mittens and boots if needed.

 Our dismissal to vehicles at the end of the day takes approximately 10-15 minutes.  This is very impressive given the volume of students that are picked up on a daily basis.  We are seeing a high number of parents not turning off their vehicles during parent pick-up.  This is a critically important safety measure recommended by the Barnstable PoliceThis is about our students’ safety.  Please make sure you are turning off your vehicle so that we can bring our students to vehicles safely.  

We have also seen an increase in parents coming in to pick up children early.  Every time we call into a classroom, we are interrupting the learning for every child in that classroom.  We understand that there are times when things come up that it may require a child to be dismissed early.  Please avoid doing this unless it is one of those times so that we can continue to provide uninterrupted instruction for our students.

It is also vitally important that if you are changing the procedure of how your child gets home in the afternoon, we need a note. 

I want to take a moment to celebrate Kindergarten Family Reading Night held last week in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday!  What a wonderful event!   A very big thank you to Mr. Carlon, our guest reader, and to our kindergarten staff who helped make this event a spectacular one! 

We also have some exciting events coming up in the next month here at school!  This Thursday night, March 9, we have our 3rd grade “Moon Party”.  In a few weeks, our music teacher Ms. Heleen will be leading our kindergarten, second and third graders in chorus performances, while our first graders prepare for the annual “Hat Parade” held later in the year.  Our Adopt-a-School Officer, SGT Gene Desrusseax and I will be starting up the Police Academy after school for third grade students. 

Our PTA is meeting tonight at 6:30.  I want to extend a big thank you to everyone who has been coming out to meetings to help plan out the remainder of the school year! 

Thank you and don’t forget to turn the clocks ahead this weekend!  Spring forward!
