Dear Pingree Friends and Families,

Happy April Everyone,

With winter behind us (hopefully) we are on to Spring!

On April 3rd there is a half day for teachers’ professional development. All students will be dismissed at 11:45. There will be WeyCare in the afternoon.

On April 5th Pingree will be holding its Annual International Night from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Our third and fourth graders will be starting their MCAS testing this month. A schedule and more information will be going home. Remind students to get a good night sleep the night before the test as well as a good breakfast in the morning. Students should be aware of the importance of the testing but should not be overly stressed by it. It is just one of many tools that we use to assure that your child is getting the best education we can provide.

Pingree’s Parent/Teacher conferences will be on Tuesday evening, April 10th and Wednesday afternoon, April 11th, which will be a half day for students. Directions on making your appointment on line will be sent home. WeyCare is available in the afternoon.

April vacation is from April 16th (Patriot’s Day) until April 20th. Students will return to class on April 23rd.

Weymouth Special Olympics will be held on April 26th at the High School.

It is my hope that your child is able to get a must needed rest over April vacation and return ready for the home stretch to June. I would like to have you remind your child to read or practice their Lexia over vacation. Doing so will assure that they are ready to pick up where they left off before vacation. Board games are also good for teaching reading, learning to take turns and allow for family engagement as is active outdoor play. Remember “Play is the work of childhood”-Fred Rogers.

Happy Spring,

Mrs. Guilfoy
