Principal Madden’s Weekly Message—Week of May 16, 2022


This week’s photos show our kindergarten students surprising our fabulous nurses with a poster of appreciation, some 3rd grade readers enjoying the nice weather, 4th grade fort builders, a wonderful buddy pair (4th grader and kindergartener), and some 4th graders enjoying a cold treat after MCAS testing.

Also, check out this great video that Ms. Egitto and Ms. Mariani-Prall created from Forest Friday footage!

Food Service Updates

Please take a moment to read the recent update from our Food Service Director, Mistelle Hannah:


COVID Updates

We did have positive COVID cases again last week. Fingers crossed that we can keep our numbers low. I know we all thought we were going to be in better shape this spring than we are. Masking and COVID cases are frustrating, but we just have to stay strong together.

Please remember that we are a scent-aware learning community. We have people here who have allergies to scented products, and we ask that you and your children refrain from wearing these products at school. Thanks for your cooperation.
