  • 04/14/2017 Good afternoon.  We have finished our first week of SBAC testing.  I am very proud and appreciative of the effort the students put into the assessment.  Our teachers have worked hard in both preparing them for the exam and encouraging them to give it their best effort.  I saw a lot of “best efforts” over the past 4 days.  I’m a happy principal today.  We will do the math portion the week we return from vacation; make-ups for this week will begin on Monday.All band and chorus members (families, too!) are invited to attend the Manchester Fisher Cats baseball game (versus the Portland Sea Dogs) on Tuesday, May 23.  A permission slip was sent home earlier.  Our ...

  • 04/07/2017 Good afternoon.  Next week is a very important week as we begin our Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) testing.  Next week is the English/Language Arts (ELA) portion of the test and the week of May 1 will be the Math portion of the SBAC test.  Next week, the 5th and 6th Graders will test on Tuesday and Thursday while the 7th and 8th Graders will test on Wednesday and Friday.  We will provide breaks, snacks, and water for the students as well as not assign any homework next week to make next week easier to manage for them.  I need you help, please, in encouraging your child to do their very best.  It is important to our school in ...

  • 03/23/17 Good afternoon.  I just came from a “concert” down in our Band Room where Paul Warnick’s Unified Arts class, Rock Band, put on their final performance.  As always, they were impressive; it is amazing how quickly Mr. Warnick can get them to form a band.  And they warmed my heart by playing tunes by the Beatles and the Stones!From our school nurse, Beth Haddock:  Four batches of EpiPens have been recalled due to failure to activate.  All EpiPens kept in the Health Office have been checked and are unaffected.  Please check any that you may have at home for yourself or family members to ensure that they are still good to use.  Follow this link for more information ...
