Stuffed animal day

Please remind your child to bring a stuffed animal to school TOMORROW as our special "Fun Friday" event.
Thank you!

Monday, December 11, 2017


Now that snow season is here please send your child to school in appropriate snow gear so that they can have fun playing outside. Also, if you would like to have your child leave their sneakers at school so they do not have to bring them back and forth, that is fine. They will definitely need them for Mondays and Thursdays when we have P.E. Thank you!

Candy and Cards

Today your child received a reply card from Mrs. Veilleux's sister who is in the US Air Force. We sent her cards a few weeks ago as part of a writing activity and she responded to the students individually. She also sent along a mini candy cane as a gift. I asked the children to keep these in their folders until they got home so that you could give them the OK before they had them. I just wanted you to know where the special mail/candy came from.

Halloween Fun

We had a great time at the Halloween Parade and Party a few weeks ago (sorry for the delay)! Thank you so much for those of you who were able to send in snack items and/or help with costumes. We had fun leading the parade to LSS. Then we ended the day with a yummy snack and a fun Bingo Game. A big thank you to Nicole Mazur for organizing another fun event!

Tomorrow is the Halloween Parade! The students should BRING their costumes to school and we will change after lunch, recess, and Music. Please remember that the students should be able to walk safely in their costumes as we will be parading over to LSS. The 1st Grade Parade begins at 1:45. We will be exiting through the front door of MSS and walking over to LSS. Please remember that for safety only the students and teachers should walk on the parade route. Thank you!

Indoor Recess

Last week, Ms. Comer came in and reminded us how to use the "Buddy" Benches on the playground to make sure everyone is included at recess. Today a few students took it upon themselves to create an indoor "Buddy" Bench for Indoor Recess. It fills my bucket to see this kindness!

A special guest

We had a special visitor today! This is a large praying mantis that came in as a special share to start our morning! You need to look closely as it blends in with the grass. It is hanging on the top of the container.
