Talking at Mealtime Makes Better Readers
According to a recent study, mealtimes are one of the best times to talk to your child.  And that's important!  When you talk with your child you are helping him/her practice oral (spoken) language skills.  These oral language skills will help your child develop into a strong reader. It is important for young readers to hear lots of new words at home.  Children who hear lots of new words are more likely to build strong language skills.  Hearing lots of new words helps them learn how to figure out what those words mean from the way they are used in conversation.  The researchers also say talking with your child about thoughts and ideas is just as important.  Remember, talking about the pictures in a book and what the words mean is always a good idea.
Important Student Pick Up Procedures
*   For safety purposes, we encourage parents to not pick up their child(ren) between the hours of 3:15 pm and 3:35 pm unless it is for an emergency only.
We encourage you to utilize our bus transportation.
*  Please send a note in with your child stating that you will be picking him/her up at dismissal.  
*  Parents are to park in our parking lot and come into the building where you will be asked to show proper identification prior to your student being dismissed.
*  If a note is not sent in, please be sure to call the main office at 978.5700 x1350 prior to 3:00 pm (prior to 12:30 pm early dismissal days) informing us.  Do not call or email your child's teacher.
