All The Details On Our "What's Happening" Page!
Rotary Club members Bill and Diane Reilly recently came to our Third Grade classrooms to distribute brand new personal dictionaries to every student. Students get to keep the dictionaries. They use them frequently during their writing block to help improve spelling. They also use them during Reading to discover the meaning of unfamiliar words.
Bus Information: Since so many Aborn students take buses home or to after-school programs, making sure that all students arrive safely at their destination is important to us. If your child will be taking a bus home or to an after-school program, please take the time to talk to him/her about it. Answer any questions he/she may have. A note should be sent in to the classroom teacher on the very first day informing the teacher of the bus your child will be taking. We will cross reference these notes with our bus lists. During the year, if your child typically takes a bus home or to an after-school program, but you intend to pick him/her up instead, you must send a note to the classroom teacher to avoid having us put your child on the bus. Relaying messages via phone calls is not always possible due to the high level of activity that takes place at the front desk during the school day. If we do not have a note, for security purposes, we must put students on their designated buses. 

Forms: During the first week of school, we send out many forms that need to be completed and returned. Teachers will be collecting the forms on a daily basis. Please check to see if they are double-sided and make every effort to return forms as soon as possible. Emergency forms are extremely important and should be returned the day after distribution, then updated whenever necessary during the year. Copies of any current restraining orders must also be given to the school. Lunch information, including lunch prices and applications for free and reduced lunch, will be sent home the first week of school.

All K-2 students should bring a drink and nut-free snack for the first two weeks of school until we process students’ medical allergy information. This will help to keep all Aborn students healthy and safe. If your child has an allergy, make sure you inform the school nurse, classroom teacher, and school principal in writing. If your child is on any medication, please have a direct conversation with our school nurse. Any medication which needs to be administered at school must come with a doctor’s order outlining administration procedures.

Reminders from our Nurse: Your child’s current immunization must be up to date! Students may be restricted from attending school if essential documents are not current. Send any necessary immunization or physical forms to the attention of the Aborn School Nurse. 


We want to welcome the following new staff members to the Aborn:

  Dear Aborn Parents/Guardians,  
Listed below are some important dates to note for the month of February. Once you’ve reviewed the calendar portion of this notice, I’ve listed some additional important information below AND on the back of this sheet. Please hang this list in a place for easy reference. For your added convenience, and so that you can access them with your internet capable devices, I will add these events to the Aborn School Google website calendar by February 5th.Ms. Muxie

Additional Information:

1) Our MCAS 2.0.test window begins in April. Although state testing takes place currently only in Grades 3-5, all parents can help us get your child ready to do his/her best when the time comes by making sure homework is completed and strong study habits and routines are encouraged on a daily basis in all grades. If done with consistency and in an atmosphere of caring and watchful support, this will build stamina and confidence in your child that will translate into academic confidence and competence during the test.
Did you know that technology skills are now being incorporated into the tests? All tests are projected to be online by 2018. Listed on the reverse side of this sheet are just some of the technology skills that your child will need when he/she takes the tests online.

  • Logging in independently by typing in his/her own username and password
  • Scrolling not only the whole page but also a story or section WITHIN the page
  • Tab browsing (moving from one tab to another)
  • Highlighting
  • Knowing how to bold, italicize and underline words and/or sentences
  • Knowing how to drag and drop
  • Understanding that a squiggly red line under a word typically means there is a spelling error
  • Knowing how to create a table while simultaneously considering how many columns and rows one needs for a given problem or task
  • For intermediate grades….in addition to the above, knowing how to, a) use an online protractor, and b) for multi-media clips, click on the play button to advance the video clip, click on the stop button to stop the clip, and be able to find a specific TIME portion of a video.
  • Understanding the meaning of symbols like <, >, /, #.

Our staff will be exposing students to the MCAS Practice tests which are currently in the process of being released by the MA Department of Education. Science is already available on the Departments website. You can view it by going to: www.doe.mass.edu then clicking on the Assessment tab you see at the top of the screen.
Next, on the left hand side of the page, click on the acronym MCAS, then go to Test Administration Resources. You will see any currently available practice test listed.
The district has also purchased all Grade 4 students a subscription to The Typing Club.com so that they can practice keyboarding skills. The Typing Club has a Free Trial if you are interested. I will keep you informed of any new developments.

2) Last year, I called the Lynn Police’s Traffic Division to request that we extend the yellow NO Parking line to the corner of Clark Street. I felt this would make sense in light of the fact that we now have 8 buses coming at dismissal time to bring Aborn students either home or to after school programs. Unfortunately, I was told that the parking space must stay as it is, since the lack of the yellow line that goes to the corner is the legal and designated parking space for the house located behind it. I wanted all families to know this since it has been a source of frustration for many. I would encourage parents to NOT use the space at dismissal time unless absolutely necessary. Also, just a reminder that cars may NOT enter our school parking lot at any time and should not be blocking the driveways of neighbors, even if you are remaining in the car.

3) If you have not yet returned your uniform clothing survey, please do so now. I will be using the information gathered and sharing it with the School Committee on February 9th.

Welcome To The Aborn Elementary School

“Students come to school… seeking themselves. Like all humans, they are looking for a sense of their own meanings, roles, and possibilities.”   Tomlinson and McTighe

At the Aborn elementary school we never forget the above fact. It is our job and our mission, to work closely with parents and other members of the community to create students who enjoy the process of learning, attain the 21st century skills they need to lead successful lives, and in that process, discover their talents and ultimately themselves.  

We do this within the context of standards-based instruction and assessment, as well as a mindful focus on developing a character that includes responsibility, good decision-making, and empathy for others. These are things that students will carry with them throughout their lives.

Our staff members value the following responsive approaches to teaching:

  • Find ways to get to know students
  • Incorporate opportunities for small group teaching and activities into weekly routines
  • Teach to the high end and state expectations clearly
  • Offer multiple ways to explore learning
  • Teach with different learning styles in mind
  • Frequently monitor student understanding.

We welcome you to join us in our efforts to guide the journey of our next generation.
Feel free to peruse the pages of our website, which we will be updating throughout the year.

If you have any questions or contributions, feel free to contact us!

Ms Muxie
