Principal’s Weekly Update

Office Dawn Fleming of the Newton Police Department conducted a bike safety presentation with all students over the past two weeks.  Her message included various ways to stay safe while biking, including wearing a helmet at all times. Ask your child what he or she learned from Officer Fleming.

Communication is one our school’s Core Values.  At a recent All School Meeting we discussed the important elements of this skill.  We focused on “using your words” (sharing feelings with others) and “listening” (using your eyes, ears and body).  We will be focusing on communication this year and how it can benefit our entire school community (students, teachers and families).

Principal Coffee – Memorial-Spaulding Sped PAC (Parent Advisory Council) to meet this Friday – October 20th @ 8:30 am in the Cafe. All parents of current special education students are invited to attend.

Facilities Update: The arrival of our new front doors and benches have been delayed due to various national weather issues (hurricanes and flooding).  I have been informed the new doors should be installed over Thanksgiving break.  The benches have arrived and should be installed within the next couple weeks.  During the month of November we will have several trees planted in the front of the building.

Although it was a bit chilly this morning, it sounds like our beautiful weather will continue throughout the week.  Not too hot, not too cold – good weather for learning!  Have a delightful week.
