Dear Moose Community,

We've had a delightful 3rd week of school! Students have been invested in their learning communities. Tunes from Annie the musical have been coming from the music room as Miss Samm has been doing some theatrical work with the students! Mr. Carra and the Moose Lodge students are having fun playing games and learning the rules and expectations of after school time. Our Moose on the Move Club has picked up on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. It's a busy and joyful time at SES.

Next week, SCHOOL PICTURES will happen on Friday the 20th. This is an earlier date than in years past. Students will bring an order form home. Pictures can be ordered by the paper form or online with the code located on the form. We have appreciated Geskus because there are more options for customization for types of packages/pictures. 

Also, on Friday the 20th, 4th grade will go on a walking field trip to the MN Spear Memorial Library. They will look quite fancy in their picture day outfits, strolling into town!

The 5th and 6th grade team has decided to begin a new team building and special activity at SES. On Friday, September 27th, students will return to school at 6:00 pm for the first annual SES CAMPOUT! The 5th and 6th graders will be camping out in the SES gym. The night will include a nature hike with flashlights, a campfire with stories, pizza and s'mores, team building games, stargazing with telescopes, crafts and a movie with popcorn. Students will have a pancake and cereal breakfast in the morning. This special activity is just for 5th and 6th graders! I can't wait to experience this with the students.

Please remember that Open House will be on September 25th from 6:00-7:00pm (students can attend!). Also, Celebrate Shutesbury will be happening on September 21st on the town common! Lots of fun activities, music, treats, and books will be there! 

If you have not received a letter notifying you of free/reduced lunch approval, and you feel your child would benefit from this assistance, please fill out the lunch form that was sent in first day packets and send it back. If you have questions or need a new form, please contact Jessica. 

Enjoy the full Harvest Moon this weekend and Happy Friday the 13th!
