Dear Families,

Happy Spring!! I think spring has finally arrived!?  It sure feels like spring in the school as the calendar is filling up with many end of the year events.  The last day of school will be June 13th for preschool and June 14th for the rest of the grades. We are just waiting on Milford to approve their calendar for next year before we send ours out.  I anticipate it being sent out in the next few weeks.

We are currently enrolling  kindergarten and first grade students for next year.   Registration is April 1-19th. If you have a child that isn’t already registered please come in between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:30 pm to register your child or call Miss Heidi to set up a time.  Registration paperwork is also on the website. If you know of children in town that are eligible to start kindergarten next fall (turn 5 before September 30, 2019) or first grade (turn 6 before September 30, 2019)  please share this information with them.

The preschool is currently full for next year.   Confirmation letters will be going out to those families that have already been on the wait list.  If your child is on the wait list but didn’t make it into the program we will notify you as well so you can look into other options.  If you are interested in adding your child’s name to the list for the 2020-21 school year please call Heid at 878-2962. The preschool program is for children that are 3 and 4 years old.   

Mrs. Ringer had her baby boy on April 3rd!  His name is Arthur “Artie” Ringer. Mrs. Ringer will be out for the remainder of the year on her maternity leave.  Miss Sharp will be taking over 3rd grade for the rest of the year. Mrs. Terrill will be returning from her maternity leave on Monday, April 8th.   Mr. Crush will also be returning from his medical leave on the 8th! It will be great to have them back. We have two staff leaving us at the end of the year.  Mrs. LaMontagne will be retiring in June and will be headed to sunny and warm North Carolina to enjoy her family and retirement. Mrs. Coey will also be leaving in June.   She has the opportunity to stay home with her daughter and enjoy being a full time mom. We will certainly miss both of them but we are excited for the next chapters in their lives.   Mrs. Ringer will be moving to second grade next year as she is ready for a new adventure. We will begin the hiring process for a new special education and Title I teacher as well as a third grade teacher.   I will keep you updated on our progress in filling these positions.

There is a lot happening over the next couple months.  Here is a list as of now and more information will come as these events get closer.
