Principal's Pen
Thursday, May 21, 2015

Dear MSES Community,

There are only 23 ˝ days of school left before summer vacation!  Students’ last day will be Friday. June 26th.  This will be a half-day.  Dismissal will be at 11:25am.  It is an incredibly busy time of year.  Fields trips, concerts, field days, assemblies are filling our calendar.  I have included an updated calendar following this Principal’s Pen for your convenience.
MCAS Testing
We are wrapping up MCAS testing this week.  Parents will receive their child’s performance reports in late September. 
Teacher Appreciation Week
Thank you to the PTO for organizing Staff Appreciation Week, and to all parents and students who provided treats and demonstrated acts of appreciation. 
The staff felt very spoiled!
Classroom Placements
We have also begun the process of creating classrooms for next year.   This is very important work as it truly sets the foundation for a successful school year.  The process involves all of us administrators, teachers, specialists and parents.  When creating a classroom community there are several factors that we use to create a heterogeneous group of learners. We start by forming shells of classrooms that have balanced instructional groups.  We strive to create a balance of boys and girls and learning styles along with compatible behavioral profiles and positive peer combinations through teacher reflection, parent input and instructional programming.  Parent input is reviewed to be sure the student learning style through the parents' eyes matches the teacher’s instructional style. The class lists are revisited several times by many pairs of eyes.  Adjustments are made and made and made until the grade level placement team of teachers, administrators and specialists are sure they have created the best possible classroom communities.
Everyday Heroes
Earlier in the month we celebrated the exceptional work that occurs every day in our schools by individuals so worthy of recognition for their hard work and dedication to others at the Every Day Heroes Award Ceremony hosted by SPED PAC.  Speech/Language Pathologist Keith Oliver and grade 5 Special Education Teacher Kathy Bowman were recognized at the ceremony.
Classroom Book Drive
Many thanks to fifth graders Anneliese Oetsen, Catherine Roseen, Matthew Picarillo and Scott Puopolo who organized the classroom library/hospital book drive.  They collected and organized well over 200 books.  These fifth graders sorted the books by grade levels and delivered them for classroom libraries.  Thank you Anneliese Oesten for your great idea and gathering your team of helpers!!!
Grade 3 Memorial Day Concert – Friday, May 22nd
Friday, May 22nd is the performance date for our third grade Memorial Day concert. Parents – please note the concert will be at 2pm.  This is a time change from prior years.
Lost and Found
Our Lost & Found table is OVEFLOWING!  It is now located in the cafeteria by the stage.  Please remind your child to check the table.  The best way to not loss and item is to be sure it is labeled with the child’s name.  Labeled items are always returned to the child’s classroom.
End of the Year Activities AND CORIs
There are many special events and activities coming up that need the assistance of our parents.  Please remember to complete your CORI at GPS Central Office (located in the Municipal Building on Providence Road).  CORIs are active for three years.  Regardless if you have been CORIed for Girl Scouts, Little League, etc. you do need to complete one with the school system.  If you are unsure of when you had a CORI completed or if your CORI is still active, please feel free to call the school office.
Take a Picture!! And Social Media
There are many upcoming memory makers on the school calendar.  I do want to remind parents to be cognizant of  posting pictures taken at school events on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) that have children in them other than your own unless given a parent’s permission.  The only child who you should be posting images of at school-wide events is your own.  Please be mindful of this.
Warm regards,
Joanne Stocklin
