Rescheduling Bayside

Depending on the weather, our plan is to head over to Bayside on Monday 6/18. We will leave MBS after lunch at about 12:00, and leave Bayside to get back in time for Unified Arts at about 1:30. There will be no swimming.

If you are planning on meeting us at Bayside, please call the main office on Monday morning to confirm whether or not we are going.

Thanks,

Ms. Riggs

Bayside

A reminder that we are headed to Bayside tomorrow! Please look for a notice coming home with more information regarding our field trip. We will leave MBS at 11:00 and leave Bayside to return to school at 2:00.  Our class will swim between 12:00-1:00.  If you’d like to meet us there, please feel free. We’d love to have you!

I took a count for hot lunch and only two students signed up. Please make sure to send your student with a lunch if they did not sign up for a bagged lunch.

Thanks!

Upcoming Events

Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday your child brought home a purple permission slip for some walking field trips within Colchester.  The group going to the Town Offices will leave at 9:00 instead of 9:15 due to the Town Office Schedule.

Also, a reminder that field day is Friday.  Students need sneakers, sunscreen and water.  We will be ordering bagged breakfasts on Thursday so they are available before field day starts. Please discuss this with your child so they are prepared to order early!

SBAC and Other April Updates

Hi Families!

A reminder that April vacation is next week, April 23-April 27. Let’s hope for some real spring weather!

The week we get back from break we will begin SBACs. May 2-4 we will be taking math, and May 9-11 will be ELA. I am asking for some healthy, allergy-aware snacks (fruit, pretzels, etc.), mints, and gum for these days. If this is possible for your family, please send them in with your child. Students will also need headphones for SBAC testing. I will have extras if necessary. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Lastly, we have earned a class celebration! We voted, and Tuesday, May 1 will be Bring a Toy to School Day!

Have a great rest of your week and a restful, relaxing, and fun April break!

Fun-Filled Day

What a day we had! This morning we brainstormed, problem-solved, and worked together to create some amazing forts. In the afternoon, Greenhouse took part in our school-wide celebration of a movement challenge. Each class visited the four classrooms and participated in a different activity. Ask your child to tell you more!

A reminder that there is no school tomorrow, Friday, March 23 for teacher inservice. Enjoy your weekend!

       

Classroom Celebration

We have filled our jar once again, and this time we voted for Fort Day as our classroom celebration!

This Thursday (3/22) we will create forts in our classroom and spend the afternoon learning and creating in the forts we’ve made. If possible, please encourage your student to bring in sheets and blankets to help build!
