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!

Additional Information

  • Since we are planning so far in advance, times and locations listed on this calendar may be subject to change. If you want to confirm an event, please call our secretary, Mrs. McManus in our front office at 781-477-7320.

  • As you can see from the calendar above, in May students will be completing another round of MCAS testing. Your child’s attendance on test days is extremely important. Here is a reminder of some tips to help children do their best:
  • Don’t put so much emphasis on the test that your child gets stressed. Explain that while it’s important for him/her to do his/her best, the purpose of the tests is to simply help show how much he/she has learned and what we need to teach.

  • ***Practice the test format. For example, children might have to read a Math word problem and solve it showing their computation (e.g., multiplication, division, or addition). They will then have to EXPLAIN IN WRITING why they did what they did! Have your child practice explaining his/her thinking in writing. It is not something we are used to doing, but our state Dept. of Education feels it is an important skill for students to develop in order to be ready for college and their careers.

  • Limit activities the night before the test so that your child can get the rest he/she needs to do well.

  • On test day, give your child an energy boosting breakfast that includes both protein (eggs, yogurt, milk) and carbohydrates (fruit, oatmeal, toast).
  • National Walk or Bike to School Day is May 6th.  We encourage all students to walk or bike to school on this day if possible! Walking and biking both keep your heart healthy!

  • Reserve the date for one of Aborn’s favorite events! Friday, May 15th is the Aborn Family Dance. We will be having the dance at the Breed Middle School this year. The school is located at 90 O’Callaghan Way in Lynn. The dance will have a country western theme. Pizza and ice cream will be sold.
  • We hope everyone is continuing to collect Box Tops for Education! This is an easy way for our school to collect extra funds to support student and staff programs. If you need an extra Box Top sheet, just have your child ask Mrs. McManus for one!

Thank you for your continued support!
