December 12 - 16, 2016


Congrats on another great week.  We covered it all - technology, history, instruction and curriculum planning, holiday concert preparations - even a staff night out.

Hour of Code - the students were engaged and having fun

We did our "Hour of Code" on Wednesday.  All 3rd - 5th grade students were able to bring Chromebooks to the gym and participate in a fun activity that enabled them to learn concepts of computer programing through coding and sequencing.  The students had a great time and found the activity to be challenging.  Thanks to Alicia Discepola and Lauren Daigle for putting it together, and thanks to Dr. Pamm Moore and JoAnne Colacurcio for coming and showing their support. 

Learning about Pearl Harbor in Mr. Drewnowski's class

Also on Wednesday, some of our classes took time from their regular learning to research and analyze the events of December 7, 1941.  Teachers, thank you for recognizing with your classes this important date in American history.  Students, great job in being respectful of the content and doing your part to learn about one of our nation's important events.  

One of the final practices before the big show

Plans and preparations were wrapping up this week for our annual Holiday Concert.  Mrs. Rohaly and her students sound - and look - ready.  I can tell you from personal experience that everyone has been working hard.  From my office, I can hear the singers singing and the players playing, and it's wonderful.  To all involved - your hard work will be showcased on Monday night, and your investment of time and energy will make you, the staff, and our whole school proud. Parents and community members, we look forward to seeing you at this festive tradition. 

Check out more pictures below to see what we've been up to.  Be great, do great work, and have a great week!
