Principal’s Update

Happy New Year! I hope you have had a good transition into 2020. A new century and a new beginning for our school community.

Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) is coming up in April and May. Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will participate in English Language Arts (ELA), Math and Science, Engineering and Technology (STE ~ 5th grade only). I am publishing the dates now so parents can ensure students are present on testing days. You can access the testing schedule HERE.

Do you have an incoming kindergarten student, or know a family who does? 2020-2021 incoming Kindergarten registration and screening is scheduled. Memorial-Spaulding screening dates are: March 3 and March 12. To book an appointment for your child, please call the main office: 617-559-9600. Newton Public Schools Kindergarten Information Night will be held on March 4 at Brown Middle School. For more information click HERE

Physical Education Peek Week is coming up next week. This is an opportunity for you to visit your child’s PE class. Check with your child’s classroom teacher for specific times to come visit!

I wish you a great evening.
