Hello Aborn Parents and Guardians!

I hope you’ve had a chance to enjoy some special moments and make some treasured memories this summer with your child/children. School will be starting soon!
Here is some back-to-school information I wanted to share with you so that you are well prepared when the first day arrives! An abbreviated version of this information will also be sent out through our Connect-Ed messaging system.

If you do not receive the phone message and wish to be placed on our calling list, please notify me at: muxiep@lynnschools.org. Include your current home phone number and email address. I will add your information to our Connect Ed system.

The first day of school for students in Grades 1-5 is Wednesday, September 7th. Our day begins at 8:15 and ends at 2:15. You do not need to send your child in with any specific school supplies, as the Lynn Public School system provides students with all the basic supplies they will need. Teachers may request some supplies during the year, but these are strictly optional. A box of facial tissues or roll of paper towels is always appreciated!

Room assignments for students in Grades 1-5 ONLY will be posted on our A3 front doors at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, August 31st. You may come any time after that to view the class lists. Please be advised, we are still registering new students on a daily basis! We work hard to ensure that we provide the best learning environment for our students. This means making sure we keep all classes as balanced as possible in terms of class size, age, gender, race, and the unique needs of each child. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

The first day for Kindergarten students is Monday, September 12th. The day begins at 8:15 and ends at 2:15. Parents of Kindergarten students will be receiving a call from Mrs. Gallant or Mrs. Condon to set up their child’s Kindergarten screening appointment for either Sept.7th, 8th, or 9th. Kindergarten classes are NOT held on those days. The screening instrument we are using (The Early Screening Inventory) is not an IQ test. Its purpose is to assess a child’s overall development in the areas of eye-hand coordination, language, cognition, gross motor, fine motor, and informational skills. Obtaining this data early in the school year enables us to provide early intervention if necessary. Since the screening involves hopping and skipping, your child should wear sneakers and comfortable clothing. Room assignments for Kindergarten classes will be posted on the front A3 doors on Saturday, September 10th after 12 noon. If you do not have time to come down to the school, please do not worry, as we will have class information when you bring your child on the first day. Kindergarten students line up at the BACK of our building near the green C1 Door.

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. 

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. 

Reading: We hope your child did some reading this summer! Students who participated in the Lynn Public Schools summer reading program should bring their reading logs and/or projects in to their classroom teacher by Wednesday, September 14th for a frozen treat that will be distributed on Friday of that week

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

Ms. Andrea Marren | Grade 5 Teacher
Ms. Marren has her degree in Elementary Education and a Masters in technology. She has been teaching at the 4th and 5th Grade levels for 10 years. She has an inherent love of learning and a passion for giving students, “the building blocks they need to achieve their goals.” 

Ms. Rebecca Freddo | Social Worker
This will be Ms. Freddo’s twelfth year as a School Social Worker/ Clinical Director for the Lynn Public Schools. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker as well as a certified School Adjustment Counselor/Social Worker. She will be at the Aborn School two days a week and she is looking forward to getting to know and support the students, families and teachers of the Aborn School.

Meet and Greet: Come and join some representatives of our wonderful PTO and me for some juice and light refreshments on Monday, September 12th. We will meet from 8:30-9:30 up on the 3rd floor in the Computer Lab.

Enjoy the rest of your summer! We’ll see you soon!

Ms. Muxie

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
