We will continue to keep the uniform simple for next year: tan or navy blue pants, skorts and shirts with black or brown dress shoes or sneakers. Many optional items are also available for your convenience. Bomber jackets were extremely popular this year. We’ve also added sweatpants with the word ABORN running down the side.

Welcome To The Aborn Elementary School

To the Aborn Elementary School Community,
It is my honor to be chosen as the new principal of the Aborn Elementary School. I look forward to working with you, your children, and our community to create a safe and caring learning environment.

I hold a Master of Education degree from Salem State University (2006) and have been an educator in Lynn for eleven years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades and have worked as a curriculum and program specialist for the past 5 years. I believe teaching is modeling and mentoring, listening and talking, and sharing and exchanging knowledge, viewpoints, and thoughts – not only with students but with colleagues, parents, and the community at large.

Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Aborn by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.

This year we will focus on our use of data to inform instruction, strategies to increase students’ achievement in the Common Core State Standards, and provide exciting and challenging opportunities for all students. I anticipate a most successful year as the team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Aborn Elementary School. 

As a school we are committed to involving parents and communicating with you regularly about all aspects of your child's education. My door is always open and I hope that you will take the opportunity to stop in to say hello, share an idea, ask a question, or express a concern.

I look forward to meeting you, learning about your core values, and helping you “grow” your children into intelligent, empowered, respectful, and productive human beings.

Sincerely yours,
Katia Spiess

Welcome to the Aborn School Council Webpage

About School Councils
A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
