Dear Parents,                                                                                                              June 7, 2019

We are approaching the year’s end with great excitement as:

  • The Grade 5 & 6 students performed their play’s dress rehearsal for the entire school plus dozens of Plainfield students who came over to see it (and we can’t wait for tonight’s performance of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream at Northern Stage, which starts at 6 pm!).

  • Our K-2 students planted seeds and set up their greenhouse and raised bed garden.

  • The 8th grade traveled to Washington DC and spent three very full days at all the museums and monuments.

  • We congratulate Ms. Jones and Lucas Prignano, 1st and 2nd place winners of the Battleship Tournament.

  • The most recent accounting of our fundraiser for National Breast Cancer Foundation shows over $1,400.00!  Photos of Mr. Budd’s magenta pink hair and its ceremonial shaving off will be posted on our website. 

Next week we will have numerous year-end activities in the Upper Wing to reflect and celebrate: Step-up Day, Trivia Day, Recycling Regatta and a summer food drive for the Haven will be going on Monday through Thursday, with a Field Day scheduled for students in grades 1 – 8 on Friday.  PreK and Kindergarten will be having their own, in-class activities that final day of school.

Last call for yearbooks!  If you haven’t yet ordered your yearbook, you can still have it shipped to your home after school is over for the year:  treering.com/1015502384331604 

Next week and beyond: 

June 13:  8th grade Graduation rehearsal and day at Storrs Pond

June 14:  Last day of school: Field Day and Barbecue

June 15:  1:00 pm -- Graduation at St. Gaudens

June 17:  6:30 pm – School Board Meeting, Library

July 2:  6:30 pm – CCPTO Meeting, Library

As a reminder to all students and parents:  please double check your school lunch accounts.  All negative balances must be resolved on or before June 14.  Any positive balances will ‘roll over’ to the start of the next school year.

From the classroom:  if you would like to have some extra learning activities to keep your child from ‘summer slide’, please contact the classroom teacher and he or she will be pleased to send some home.  Also, don’t forget that your child can still access online programs such as Reflex and iReady over the summer.  All that is needed is the student’s log-in which is the same one used all year long.

See you at 6 o’clock for Midsummer Night’s Dream!  Warmest regards,

Jennifer Prileson, Principal
