Dear SES Moose Community,

There are 16 school days left! The temperatures are rising and the school days are ticking down. As I write this letter, I can hear a 4th grade student telling a staff member how “awesome and fun” the band concert was on Wednesday night. Our student musicians who take band with Brian Bender delighted our school community on Wednesday morning and evening with a rousing line up of ditties. We are so lucky for the musical opportunities our students enjoy. Please see some pictures from the event below.




Today the 6th graders are off to Boston! They will enjoy a chemistry project at MIT, ride the T and have a scavenger hunt in Cambridge!  We know they will have a great time in the big city.

Our halls were buzzing with excitement this morning as the 2nd graders gathered to present their family heritage at their Countries of Origin Fair, and the 1st graders held a Poetry Café! Our students were so proud to show off their hard work and what they’ve learned. Bravo 1st and 2nd graders and their teachers!

Thank you to the 40 people who have taken our School Council survey so far! People are reporting that it is quick and easy—with a great opportunity to win some pizza from Chef Gail! If you haven’t taken it yet, please do so! You can click directly on this link:

If you receive a paper copy of the Roadtown, we have attached a paper version of the survey that you may prefer to submit! We appreciate your feedback.

As the weather is getting warmer, I would like to remind families to send students to school with shoes that are suitable for running and playing outdoors. Sneakers and sturdy sandals that completely attach to the foot are appropriate options for outside play. Please do not send students to school in flip-flops. We have already had a few injuries from flip-flops this week. Thanks so much for your attention to this matter.

We do not have school on Monday, due to Memorial Day.

Your fellow moose,
