Sunday Reminders #41
June 14, 2020

Happy Sunday Aborn families...it’s Mrs. Spiess with this school year’s last official installment of the Sunday Reminders.

Grade K Moving On Ceremonies will take place tomorrow, Monday, June 15 at 11:00 via Zoom. I will make an appearance at both ceremonies. The Grade 5 Moving On PowerPoint will be available on Wednesday. Thank you to Mrs. Hennessey for creating this presentation.

The final end-of-year distribution will take place from June 16-18 from 9-12. The schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday, June 16 – Grades K, 1 and Mrs. Rubalcava’s Gr. 2.
  • Wednesday, June 17 – Ms. Anaya's Grades 2 and all of Gr. 3
  • Thursday, June 18 – Grades 4 and 5 (and any younger siblings of our Gr. 5 students, so that you don’t have to come twice).

Please bring your child as teachers will be at distribution on their assigned grade-level day. All safety and social distancing protocols will be in place and we will have the same walk-up and drive-up options available.

Get ready for ST Math...it is about to go LIVE. ST Math is our summer online math program designed to help mitigate the loss of learning that children have experienced these last 3 months. Your child’s teacher will help you get logged on and up and running. Gr. 2, 3, and 4 received LPS-issued loaner laptops for this purpose. Grades K, 1, and 5 can use a personal device.

Since the last Sunday Reminders, there have been 130 responses to the Remote Learning Communication Survey. That’s double last week’s numbers. I am keeping the link open until June 18. I will be looking at the data carefully to analyze how we have done during this time and what we can do better or differently moving forward. The link can be found on Friday’s School Story in the End-of-Year letter from me.


Class Dojo will remain OPEN for the summer. Teachers will be off duty, but I am not. More than half of the families who have responded to the survey so far are interested in continuing their child’s academic engagement over the summer. I will communicate a plan with you in the coming days. This is optional but available for anyone who is interested.

You can always connect with me by email or through Dojo. I am also sharing my Google Voice number in case you would like to reach out by text message. It is: 781 309 7045. If you choose to use this method of communication, please identify yourself so I know who’s texting.

I will also continue with Sunday Reminders as needed throughout the summer to keep you informed about next year.  What a crazy year everyone.

Thanks for taking the journey with me. Have an awesome evening.
Mrs. Spiess

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.
