  • Shelburne Farms Field Trip

    Posted by Jill Rochford on 3/4/2020 9:00:00 AM

    A permission slip for our up coming field trip is coming home with your child today.  

    The 3/4 Team will be going to Shelburne Farms on Wednesday. March 25th. The bus will be leaving school by 8:30 and will return in time for students to take the bus home at the end of the day.  The title of the field trip is “Sugar Time!”. Shelburne Farms has requested that each class bring 2 chaperones. If you are interested in helping out with this trip, please sign below-- because of the limited number, we will be in touch with you to confirm space.  There is a $7.00 fee for all students. If this fee causes a hardship for your family, please let us know and arrangements can be made for your child to attend. Finally, if your child needs a bagged lunch from our school lunch program, please check the box below. (The money will be deducted from your child’s school lunch account.)

     Recommendations from Shelburne Farms:

    What to bring:  Students should bring a snack, lunch, and water bottle.

     What to wear:   We will be inside and outside during our time together. Please encourage your students and chaperones to look at the weather and dress accordingly & bring plenty of warm layers!

    Chaperones: We request that 2 chaperones attend per class. In order to supervise and support small groups, we ask that chaperones do not come with younger siblings.

  • Student Led Conferences

    Posted by Jill Rochford on 3/4/2020
     

    Dear Families,

     
    There is no school March 20 due to student led conferences.  3/4 students will be conducting conferences in their homerooms.  More than one student can be conducting their conference at a time, so there is a little more flexibility in scheduling.  If the 20th isn't convenient for your family, you may select to have your child conduct their conference with you at home.  If this option works better for you, please select a date after March 20th that will work, and sign up at the bottom of the form.  Your child will then bring their work home to share with you that night or weekend, and then return it to school the following day.
