Dear Fellow Moose,

I hope this letter finds you very relaxed and refreshed after a few months of summer vacation. I know that many families were very busy this summer going on vacations, hikes and day trips. Many families went camping, visited Lake Wyola, attended various camps, read, slept and played outside.  I hope there was much laughter, peace and fun for you all.


We have been very busy at school planning, cleaning and preparing for our new school year. Teachers have been visiting the school all summer preparing for their new classes. Some classrooms have been painted bright and cheerful colors, landscaping in the front of the school has been polished up and our new playground in the back of the school has been installed! We will have some new students, staff members and families joining Shutesbury Elementary School this year. We can’t wait to welcome them and introduce them to you at our first day of school morning assembly at 9:15 am.


I would like to invite you again to our Back-to-School Party! This event will take place on Wednesday, August 24th from 6:00-7:00 pm. We will gather in the gym where I will share a story. We will then officially open our new playground! After some time playing, we will share a summery treat. It’s a great event to see familiar friends, and to meet new ones!


Our first day of school is August 31st—only 2 weeks away! I want to remind families to access school information from our school website: The school calendar, important dates and information and the lunch menus will be available.


As always, if you have any questions or concerns you can reach out to me or to Jessica (SES Administrative Assistant) by phone or email: 

 I look forward to seeing you all at the Back-to-School Party and the first day of school!
