January was a very busy testing month. Students showed their skills using computers and chrome books while taking mid-terms, 5 District Partnership Tests and the ACCESS test. This great weather has provided teachers uninterrupted time to work with our students on the content and skills necessary for them to be successful on the new MCAS test. The test is scheduled to be given in the spring to students in grades 3-8.
Grade 8 students organized a school wide food drive. Over 1500 non-perishable food items were collected for the Bread of Life. Also students in grades 7 & 8 raised money for a dance by collecting pennies. The dance will take place on February 10, 2017. More information will follow.
In support of our school goal on the social and emotional well-being of our students, representatives from the Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc. to speak to our seventh and eighth grade students. The topic will be cyber bullying, Bystander Revolution and the Importance of good friendships.
