Picture Retake Day is next Tuesday, December 12. This is an opportunity for any student who was absent on Picture Day to have their school photo taken. Students who were photographed on Picture Day can have their picture retaken if their eyes were closed or there was a technical flaw in the picture. Envelopes did go home with students and are also available in the office, see Mrs. Nee. Photos will be taken first thing in the morning, so please be on time for school!
On Friday, November 3 we will have the first round of club/group pictures. The following groups will have their pictures taken: The entire eighth grade, Grade 6-8 Chorus, Grade 6-8 Band, Grade 5 Band, Grade 5 Chorus, Cross Country, Field Hockey, Select Chorus, Jazz Band. Individual pictures will be taken on November 15. Picture information will be sent home soon.
SNOW DAY EXTENDED LEARNING PILOT COMMITTEE
The district leadership team has been exploring the possibility of initiating a pilot of Extended Learning opportunities for students as an alternative to making up all snow days at the end of the school year. This past week Superintendent Landers informed the school committee of the formation of a district-wide work group to put together a proposal to present for a pilot of this initiative.
The district is seeking to form a committee comprised of representation from the following groups: School Committee, a parent representative from each of the three towns, faculty members from each of the three levels (elementary, middle, high), a support staff member and one or more members of the district leadership team. The meetings to review the research already completed by the leadership team and to put together a proposal for our district pilot to present to the school committee will be held on the following dates and times:
Monday, November 6, 2017, 5:00-7:00 pm at the NMRSD high school
Monday, November 13, 2017, 5:00-7:00 pm at the NMRSD high school
Monday, November 27, 2017, 5:00-7:00 pm at the NMRSD high school
The presentation to the school committee is tentatively scheduled for Monday, December 4th. Winter and spring dates will be determined by the committee as needed after the presentation to the school committee in December.
If you are interested in being a part of this Snow Day Extended Learning Pilot Committee, please email Becky Janda, principal of Spaulding Memorial School, who will be chairing this committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by this Thursday, November 2.
