Dear
Families,


          March has come in like a lion.  We hope that there are no more snow days for
the rest of the year! 


          Some fun things are planned for the
next few weeks.  Today Kert Kleeman, the
school spelling bee champion for the Charter School, competed against the winners
from the other elementary schools on the island.  The 3rd and 4th graders
went to the PAC to watch the bee.  We
were so excited to cheer on Kert and provide him with our support as he tackled
some hard spelling words. Way to go, Kertie!


          Next Friday, March 24th,
the NED Show is coming to our school. 
NED stands for Never give up, Encourage others, and Do your best.  The program motivates kids to persevere with challenges
and help others. 


          The English Language Arts MCAS will be
given to students at MVPCS on April 4th, 5th and 6th.  We have been working on testing taking
strategies and practice tests over the last month to get ready.  We encourage all students to participate by
taking the tests.  The results help us a
practice for the big test for graduation in tenth grade.



          We continue work on keeping lice out
of our classrooms.  Please check your
child’s hair frequently to make sure that there are no nits. It is also a good
time to wash winter coats and backpacks. 



                   Look out for signs of spring!
