October 19, 2017

Dear Families,

This RTN is coming to you on Thursday because of Curriculum Day on Friday! Teachers from all Union 28 schools will gather together at Leverett Elementary and learn some more about Universal Design for Learning as well as Trauma Informed Practices. 

On Sunday the Walk-a-Thon to benefit Puerto Rico was held. Jaime Donta and Sally Campbell Galman facilitated this great event. Students, teachers and families walked and ran around our new track. Baked goods were donated by the community and were also sold for donation. I am told the event raised almost $2000 for Puerto Rico via UNICEF. Thanks to all involved in this powerful event.

This week we also hosted our Fall School Book Fair. Students browsed and shopped for books during school and at the Family Event Wednesday Night. Thank you to Ms. L and her older student helpers for setting up and running the fair.

Two big items are coming up soon:

  • Early release on Tuesday, October 24 at 1:00 for Family Conferences.  Family Conferences will continue on Wednesday, October 25 with a regularly scheduled 1:00 dismissal.
  • Please see the letter attached to this week's Roadtown News regarding our 4th annual Vocabulary Costume Day (Friday, October 27). 





THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who participated in the Walk-a-thon benefit for UNICEF in Puerto Rico last weekend! Your efforts have raised a lot of money to help our neighbors in need get access to clean water and other necessities. We will report back with a total soon-- but please send in your pledge sheets and cash or checks (made out to UNICEF USA) by MONDAY, OCTOBER 23. We would like to send a special thank you to everyone who helped bake, set up, and clean up, especially Ms. Mendonsa and Jake and Leah Stinson.

Thank you!

Jaime and Sally




Gabriel from Kindergarten!

JCB:  What is your favorite thing to do at school?
GL:  Play with my friend, Rogan, outside.  We play this game that’s called “I’m a chipmunk!” and he’s a chipmunk and it’s a chipmunk game and we’re all chipmunks and we gather nuts for the winter.

JCB:  What is your favorite lunch?
GL:  Candy!  All the candies in the universe!

JCB:  And if you couldn’t have candy, what would be your favorite kind of lunch?
GL:  I would like cookies!

JCB:  What is your favorite thing to do at home?
GL:  My favorite thing to do at home is eat snack.  I have nachoey, really cheesy chips and fig bars.

JCB:  If you could be any animal what animal would you be?
GL:  Bunny.  Well, it’s amazing how they dig through tunnels and I’d like to do that.  Also, they are very cute and fluffy and people love them.

JCB:  How is Moose on the Move Club going?
GL:  Good.

JCB:  You’ve been working really hard at it!  You’re doing great!




MOOSE ON THE MOVE CLUB UPDATE: MONDAY, OCT. 23 FROM 8:00-8:30AM.  Whether you are already a part of moose on the move on Tues/Thurs after school or you just want to log some laps, you may join Mr. Carra at the track on Monday morning.  Thank you!


Moose On the Move Mileage Update! 

Many students and adults have logged a large amount of miles so far this year.  These are combined miles from PE class, recess, extra recess, walking field trips, and the official Moose on the Move Club (after school and before school).  The following children have hit 10 miles already and will be recognized with an incentive prize at the next all-school assembly on Friday, October 27!  Within the next week we are sure that more students will hit their 10 mile mark and also be eligible for a prize at assembly.  We’ll keep you updated in the Roadtown News.
