Greetings Memorial-Spaulding Families!
A big THANKS for the 2161 Box Top$ ($216.10) that we just collected from all of you! Congratulations this first round goes to Ms. Baggs’ class who collected 317 Box Top$ and, the runner up, Mr. Minichiello’s class who collected 232 Box Top$!
Given the success of this program last year which earned $761.50 (7615), the ambitious 2018-2019 Box Top$ goal is $1000 which we are well on our way to achieving.
Thank you for your support of this important fundraising program for our beloved school,
The Box Top$ committee,
Didem, Viki, Natalya and Chrissy
A HUGE thank you to OUR ENTIRE SCHOOL community for making Book Fair 2018 the most successful one ever! Our children’s classrooms are now stocked with many, many new books to read, and our library will get a huge influx of books as well. It takes a village, and we could not have done it without our whole school community.
A very special thank you to the brains behind this event, Erika Guerra Downey, who worked tirelessly and took time off of work to make it all happen. Our appreciation also goes out to our stellar Book Fair Committee, Jill Ostrokolowicz Katsiroubas, Christina LeBedis, Elina Magitsky, Sarah Knoff Konter & Julie Black Gollob.
And to all the parent volunteers, we appreciate your time and effort and hope to have you back next year (Hint, Hint).

Fall is in full swing, and now is the time to sign up your child for a
music class through Inhome Jams! InHome Jams, located in Newtonville,
is organizing a rock band class for Memorial Spaulding Elementary for
all level players. Enroll now and your child or children will get the
chance to play in a real band setting with classmates from their
school. Check out our website (www.inhomejams.com) to see all the
classes we offer!
Our band classes will teach your kids how to play guitar, bass, piano,
and drums in a rock band setting. The classes use easy-to-play
rock’n’roll arrangements, with parts for both the complete beginner
and the more experienced musician. We will have your child sounding
and feeling like they’re in a real rock band by the end of their first
rehearsal! All band members take part in writing their own lyrics to
establish ownership in the music they will create. There is also a
performance opportunity to play a rock show at a real music venue! To
enroll or learn more about rates and other lessons and classes
offered, please contact Darren at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 857 234
