 Dear Fellow Moose,

I hope this letter finds you very relaxed and refreshed after a few months of summer vacation. I know that many families were very busy this summer going on vacations, hikes and day trips. Many families went camping, visited Lake Wyola, attended various camps, read, slept and played outside.  I hope there was much laughter, peace and fun for you all.

 We have been very busy at school planning, cleaning and preparing for our new school year. Many teachers have been visiting the school all summer preparing for their new classes. Some classrooms have been painted bright and cheerful colors and the floors in the 5th grade, 6th grade and music room have been updated! We will have some new students, staff members and families joining Shutesbury Elementary School this year. We are very excited that Laura Ginsberg-Peltz will be our new fifth grade teacher and Katie Hertel is our new second grade teacher!  SES has also welcomed Andy Skipton as our new Assistant Custodian. We can’t wait to welcome all of our new staff and students and will introduce them to you at our first day of school morning assembly at 9:15 am.

 I would like to invite you again to our Back-to-School Party! This event will take place on Tuesday August 21st from 6:00-7:00 pm. We will gather in the gym where I will share a story. We will then officially open our NEW PLAYGROUND!! After some time playing, we will share a summery treat. It’s a great event to see familiar friends, and to meet new ones!

 Our first day of school is August 29th—only about 2 weeks away! I want to remind families to access school information from our school website: The school calendar, important dates and information and the lunch menus will be available.

 Save the date for Open House on Wednesday September 26th. More information to come!

 As always, if you have any questions or concerns you can reach out to me or to Jessica by phone or;

 I look forward to seeing you all at the Back-to-School Party and the first day of school!
