We hope to see you at the PTO sponsored Harvest Dinner tonight! This delicious event takes place from 5:30-6:30 pm in the SES gym. The PTO has sent out information regarding the potluck assignments. Please bring a favorite meal, salad, appetizer, dessert or drink and celebrate autumn with the SES community. After dinner, there will be a fabulous puppet show featuring Shutesbury’s own Anna Sobel and sponsored by the M. N. Spear Memorial Library. THANK you to the PTO and all volunteers that helped to make this traditional event happen. Special thanks go to Jade Alicandro Mace and Ashleigh Pyecroft for taking on all of the organization!
Shutesbury Elementary School T-Shirts are coming! The PTO has taken some of our student submitted moose drawings and have created a fabulous school spirit shirt. This maroon and gold (school colors) attire will be for sale soon. Students, teachers and parents will all love to rock out wearing the SES colors and mascot! Kudos to Angela Regan for her leadership on this task! (See the Shutesbury Elementary School website for a preview!)
This past week, all of our students have had some exciting sessions with our Artists-in-Residence, Ashley and Caddy Carlisle. Students and teachers are reporting that each session is filled with movement, music and fun. These sessions will continue as each class prepares for our whole school performance on December 16th. Please remember to mark your calendars for a 10:00 am and 7:00pm whole school performance.
It is hard to believe that this is the final November Roadtown edition for 2015. Next week, school is in session for Monday the 23rd and Tuesday the 24th only. We will have Thanksgiving Recess from November 25th- November 27th. I wish the entire school community a meaningful and heartwarming Thanksgiving. I hope your days are filled with good food, friends and family. Students will return to school on Monday, November 30th. The next Roadtown will be sent on Friday December 4th.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” J. F. Kennedy
