Welcome Back Fuller Meadow Families!
I hope that you have enjoyed your summer with your families! While I am so sad that the summer is coming to an end, I am thrilled to have a semblance of a schedule for my family! I feel like meals and bed time have been a free-for-all! (Come on now, who can relate????) Lily (my eight year old) begins third grade in her new school tomorrow and she has become a bit of a worry-wart over the summer. I hope it passes, but I think moving at the end of June has made her a little anxious. We had our first school event at her school last night and it put both of us more at ease. That is my goal for you and your families as well. If you are worrying or your child is worrying, please let us know!
We have about a dozen new first and second graders this year, which is pretty exciting. If you are new to Middleton, “Welcome!”. If you are not new, then “Welcome back!”. We also have about 80 Kindergartners beginning on the 8th. It is very exciting to have so many new faces!
There were several projects that we took on this summer. Some are totally complete; some are partially complete and some just didn’t get done, but we hope to see completion this fall. New enhancements include: new stage curtains for the stage, and new lighting retrofit in the classrooms which will improve the lighting and the energy consumption. One major thing currently in progress includes our new playground. It’s getting there! Our Smartboard project is not complete at this time, as we are awaiting the actual Smartboards to arrive. Once they are in, installation should go pretty quick! While this is very disappointing, I know that we will make the best of it. Many thanks to our amazing custodians, electricians and IT staff for all of their hard work this summer.
I am very excited about this new school year and I hope you are too. If you missed the back to school mailing, please click the link below for the letter that was sent in mid August.
Please remember that I am just a phone call away. If a ten minute phone call can put your mind at ease even just a little bit, it is worth the time! I know that this can be an anxious, stressful time of year for families–I want you to be able to enjoy watching your little ones!
See you very soon! Enjoy the last days of summer vacation!
A message from TRI TOWN SCHOOL UNION
Good afternoon Parents and Guardians of Boxford, Middleton, and Topsfield Elementary School Students:
The purpose of this message concerns the 2014 – 2015 School Year Bus Routes. The bus routes are now available for your review at the Tri Town School Union Website (www.tritownschoolunion.com).
You may go to www.tritownschoolunion.com and go to the Operations Tab. Under the Operations Tab you will see the Transportation Page in the drop down menu. You may use the sub-menu on the right to access the bus routes or go directly to the Transportation Web Page and access the bus routes on the left side of the page.
Over the next several weeks we will be monitoring the routes to address any potential overcrowding and/or safety issues. We will not be making any changes to the bus routes for the first few weeks in order to let the routes settle and realize consistency with the run times and counts.
If you have a question or concern please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All requests are considered on a case by case basis and are not compared to other circumstances or requests.
Thank you for your time and attention.
It’s not completed just yet, but the Fuller Meadow Playground is a work in progress! I can’t promise that it will be ready for use next week, but I can promise that it will be very soon! Thank you to the Middleton School Committee, Mr. Singer and Mr. Ferrara for backing this project. Most of all, thank you to the taxpayers of Middleton for supporting this project. I can’t wait to see the Fuller Meadow children’s smiling faces running around this playground!
The Fuller Meadow Teachers participated in an amazing FLASH MOB this morning as a surprise to Mrs. Carreiro and the students. It was AMAZING! Thank you to Mrs. Newton and Mrs. Scharffenberg for leading the surprise! It was such a wonderful way to end the school year. Be Happy!!!!!
Special thanks to Mrs. Bilicki and Mrs. Breen for videoing!
The PTO kindly sponsored a wonderful program this AM. Scott Jameson, an amazing juggler and magician, came to visit. He was outstanding and the children and adults were entertained!
