Family Field Trip

Author Alert!!! Family Field Trip!!! Join Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Merten and their families at the Northbridge Middle School in Whitinsville, Massachusetts on June 7th at 6:30 p.m. for an author visit with Jarrett J. Krosoczka.  Jarrett Krosoczka is the author of the popular Lunch Lady series.  This is the first book signing for Jarrett in a long time, so the audience will fill up.  Books will be available for purchase at the visit with cash or a check.  If time and weather permits, we will go to West End Creamery for ice cream when we are done.  This event is being hosted by The Whitinsville Social Library and should be a great time.  All family members are welcome to join and cost of books and ice cream are the responsibility of each family.  As this is an "after school hours event," families are responsible for supervising their student or any students that they bring to the event. We look forward to seeing you there!  Please find directions to NMS from JFK here.  Please find directions from NMS to West End Creamery here.

Fourth Grade Update

We have continued to build our community with Monday Morning 4th grade meetings. This is a great opportunity for our fourth graders to reconnect with their friends after a weekend, and to start our week of right!

Our mantra for this week was "Effort is Everything", which connects nicely with ~

  • Our Washington, D.C. projects (due Thursday)
  • Our Fraction assessment (Today)
  • The Patriots' Superbowl comeback!
We will be celebrating Valentine's Day on Tuesday with Valentines and a Party in a Bag.  This celebration will be in place of our regular snack.

Wednesday was a beautiful day for outdoor recess (just before the blizzard)!
