Happy Summer Vacation!

Note from Francie 6/7/13
As I write, the students are preparing for Preview Day when they will regroup in the classes they will be in next year. It’s an exciting time and can also be an anxious time, so the anxiety can be allayed a little by knowing what lies ahead next year. As teachers we’re having lots of meetings to pass on information from this year’s teachers to the next. This includes information on academics and on where we see them in terms of social and emotional development. We consider the new chemistry that is created as one grade joins another. And we learn as much as we can about the new students who will join our school community next August.

A Final Note from the Excellent Nurse, Robin
It’s funny how one minute it seems as though March will never end and then, before you know it, school is nearly over. I usually love this time of year as the weather gets warm, the days are oh so long and everything is blooming. The promise of summer looms large. This year June is bringing mixed feelings.
For me the end of this school year is mostly sad as I get ready to leave my position. I want to take this opportunity to formally say goodbye. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Marlboro School is an exceptional academic community. The students and staff have so many opportunities for learning and growing and I feel blessed to have been a part of it for the past few years. It has been an honor to care for your children and I will miss each and every one of them. I especially appreciate the support and generosity that you have shown me.
Have a great summer–enjoy the weather, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and keep your family close.

Little breezes whisper by
The green grass dances.

It is important to protect yourself and your children from Lyme disease. The best way to avoid Lyme disease is to avoid tick bites.

Send your BoxTops for Education to School!
Collecting box tops from the “Box Tops for Education Program” is an easy way to make a little money for the school. Look for the Box Top logo on hundreds of boxed products at the Co-op, Hannafords & Price Chopper (you’ll find them on cereal, granola bars, sandwich bags, etc.). Each one is worth 10¢ for our school. Just tear them off the box or wrapper and send them in to school for Stephanie Shiman, Box Top coordinator. Collecting a bunch before you send them in is great, just pay attention to the expiration dates.
