Dear Moose,

BRAVO to the 6th grade students, teachers and families for a FABULOUS Spaghetti Dinner! It was an incredible event. How great was it to have the community come together to support our school and share in a delicious meal and tradition. THANK YOU to those who went above and beyond to make sure this happened.

BRAVO as well to the amazing SES PTO for the incredible Silent Auction last Friday. Preliminary results are finding that the PTO raised about  $5,700 from this event! WOW! Special thanks go to Colleen Chudzik for facilitating the organization. THANKS!

We were treated to a fabulous Strings Concert on Wednesday by Mr. Peele and his talented students. It was a lovely event and I’ve shared some pictures below. Way to go Mr. Peele and strings students! We are indeed lucky as a school community to have these lessons available to our students.

EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT! Our School Council has created a NEW and DIFFERENT survey that we are inviting the community to fill out. We decided to use a more open-ended format, to invite all stakeholders to elaborate and express what they are thinking rather than a drop down or multiple-choice format. We are asking that you take 5 minutes to let us know your thoughts so we can continue to work to make SES the best it can be. There is an option at the end of the survey to enter to win 2 of Chef Gail’s famous homemade pizzas!

Go to:  (you can click that link from this page!) to take the survey. We will also be sending home a paper copy if you would rather share your thoughts in that format. It is a brief survey!

There are many special events occurring in the next few weeks. Today, the 5th Grade went on a fabulous scientific field trip to Amethyst Brook and UMASS. Next week, the 6th Grade will be travelling to Boston to visit MIT for a chemistry project and then a scavenger hunt in Harvard Square!  Also, the Band Concert will occur next week on Wednesday, May 25th at 10:30am and 6:30pm.  Please check the events to remember portion of the RTN for updates in this busy time of year.
