No School Tomorrow (5/16) and Other Reminders


Today I will start with an important reminder that there is NO SCHOOL  tomorrow, Friday May 16. This is a professional development day for our district, as noted on the school calendar.
I hope those of you planning to attend the Sweetheart Dance have a great time. I am intrigued by the Hollywood Lights theme and the red carpet! I am sure it will be a night to remember!

The EWG PTA wants you to know that if you haven't sent in your form for the "Hollywood Lights" dance, it's OK - they can accept walk-ins at all three sessions. You simply pay $10 at the door when you arrive!  The sessions are
·  5-7 pm for Grades PreK-3
·  6-8 pm for families with girls in upper and lower grades
·  7-9 pm for Grades 4-6
They have lots of great raffle prizes, too, including an American Girl doll (Isabelle), Red Sox tickets, gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses, and much much more!

Our bandaid collection continues and we are so impressed with the staggering participation! We are so proud of all of our students for helping with this collection. We even heard a great story about a sibling at Lineham who wants to “follow in her big brother’s footsteps” and brought some bandaids to Preschool, leaving Lineham  teachers wondering what they were for ( they made their  way here)!

This past Wednesday, Grades 1 and 2 had a special treat from the Feinstein Foundation. They provided us with the opportunity to have Ray from Buana Iguana present a wildly exciting Reptile Adventure! He taught us about lizards, iguanas, snakes  (one of them was 12 feet long, yikes!) and turtles. We were able to see the whole show outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather at the same time. I was fortunate to have the task of leading students back into the building, otherwise…. I might have had to stand in the holding line for the python! Did your child tell you about this show? They were quite excited to see the live reptiles here at our school!

Hope you all have a great weekend! 

“Bee”  Happy !
