Dear Families,

Happy Spring!! I think spring has finally arrived!?  It has been busy the last couple of weeks with Smarter Balanced testing and the excitement of the Destination Imagination team’s announcement that they will be going to Knoxville, Tennessee at the end of May.  They will represent the state of NH and compete against 47 others states and 15 countries.  Be on the lookout for information on fundraising events that the team will be hosting in order to raise the money for the team to attend.  We wish them the best of luck.

Next week, April 18th  – 22nd is the week to register for Kindergarten and First Grade.  Registration is for those children that aren’t already enrolled in the school.  Please come to the main office to get the paperwork for registration.   We currently have a wait list for the preschool but if you have a child that turns 3 before September 30th and you think you would like them to come to preschool I suggest you add them to the wait list.  If you have any questions please give Heidi a call at 878-2962.

I would also like to remind parents of children that have someone get them off the bus that it is important to be at the bus stop on time to get your child.  We have had a few instances recently where the bus has had to wait for someone to arrive.  The drivers have been kind enough to wait but this has caused other parents to become concerned when their child is running late.  In the future if there isn’t someone at the stop to get your child, the drivers will bring them back to the school at the end of their route.   Parents will then have to come to the school to pick them up.   If you ever have concerns about the bus  you can always call Butler Bus Company at: (603) 213-6399.

There is a lot happening over the next few weeks:

  • May 16-20 – SCIENCE NECAP grade 4 and NWEA grades K -3 and 5
  • Wednesday, May 18th – Early Release 1:30 pm for Parent/Teacher Conferences
  • Monday, May 23rd – 5th grade Step Up Day to Milford Middle School
  • May 27th and 30th – NO SCHOOL
  • Tuesday, May 31 – Field Trip grades 1-5 to Barrett Hill Farm 9:30 – 2:30

The end of the year is quickly approaching!  The last day of school will be Friday, June 10th for grades K-5 and Wednesday, June 8th for preschool.  Fifth Grade Graduation is Thursday, June 9th at 10 am and Kindergarten Graduation will be the 10th at 10 am.    Hold on tight these next 8 weeks are going to be busy!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Kristen
