Dear Moose,

The moon last night was incredible! I hope you were able to see it. I did not make it up at 2 AM to see the lunar eclipse, but I did hear from some students and staff that they attempted to watch it. What a beautiful way to end the week.

Last night at the Shutesbury School Committee meeting, it was decided that as of January 3, 2021 masks will be optional for students and staff while outside. Students and staff are welcomed to continue wearing masks outside if they wish, however it will not be mandatory when we return from December break. 

Next week we only have school on Monday and Tuesday. We have November 24th-26th off for Thanksgiving Recess.

It seems appropriate (and timely) that the character value that we are working on as a school in our Choose Love curriculum is gratitude. Students and staff are having meaningful conversations with each other about the meaning of gratitude and what it can look and feel like when we think about, express or feel it. We are reading great books together about gratitude, thinking of projects around it and holding it in our minds. I continue to hold so much gratitude for this small, special school filled with phenomenal educators and wonderful ( and entertaining!) students. Thanks for supporting our community with warmth, love and compassion.

Happy Thanksgiving,
