to the Principal's Corner
Dear Pingree Friends and Families,
April showers bring May flowers and they also bring MCAS testing and our second conferences of the year. If you are a parent/guardian of a third or fourth grader please review the information regarding the MCAS that was sent home. It can also be found in the Virtual backpack on our website. Conferences will be scheduled on-line as they were the previous time.
There will be a half day on April 4th for teachers’ in-service and again on April 7th for afternoon conferences. Evening conferences will be on April 6th. It is so important that you take the time to meet with your child’s teacher so that you can discuss any concerns that you have and to be sure your child is prepared for the move up to the next grade in September.
Spring vacation begins on Friday April 14th, (Good Friday) and we will return to school rested and ready for the home stretch on Monday April 24, 2017.
This year our entire school will be going to Weymouth High on April 27, to cheer on our Special Olympians. Letters and permission slips will be sent home. All students will be bused to and from the High School. There is no cost to the students.
The following day April 28, we will be having our Bike Rodeo. Information on that will also be sent home.
We have a busy month ahead. I would encourage you to enjoy the warmer weather and spend time outside in the fresh air with your child. Exercise and outdoor play are an important part of your child’s development. Let them run around outside and get all the winter cobwebs out.
Please let me know at any time if you have concerns or questions about your child’s education or well-being in school. Only by working together can we be assured that our children will be the best they can be.
