Did You Know?
The routine of the school day is important for students. They know the main purpose for being in school is to learn and that routines are in place precisely to help them focus on that learning. When students are repeatedly tardy, these routines are disrupted. Arriving after 8:15 AM can throw off their whole morning or even their day, especially if being late made the trip to school stressful.

If getting to school by 8:15 AM is a challenge for your family, you will need to make changes to your morning schedule at home in order to get to school on time. During the winter, students take longer to get ready because of coats, boots and hats. Setting your alarm for 15 minutes earlier could be all that is needed to ensure students are here to meet the teacher by 8:15 AM. This adjustment can help ensure that all students have a great start to their day

"Schoology" Parent Access Update - October 6, 2020

Your student's school will be reaching out to you by the end of next week with an access code for "Schoology". If you do not receive an access code by October 9th, reach out to your child's homeroom teacher. At the secondary level, you only need 1 access code and all courses will be loaded.

This account will allow you to see the work your child has submitted, discussions they have participated in, school updates, and also provides the ability to message staff at the school. Multiple children can be added to one parent account. The following are videos (Part 1 and Part 2) showing how to set up your account and take advantage of all the "Schoology" features available to you.

Welcome To The Sewell-Anderson Elementary School

Dear Sewell-Anderson and Tracy Kindergarten Families, 
I hope you have enjoyed your summer. I am extremely excited to begin another school year at Sewell-Anderson Elementary School. I especially look forward to opening school with all students attending an in-person, full-day schedule. I welcome and value our families’ positive energy and dedication to excellence in education and I look forward to working with you and your children this school year. 
Our incredible staff is already planning and preparing for your children. Sewell-Anderson teachers participated in Blended Learning professional development. Our staff will also continue to participate in the equity training, Hope and Healing through Active Anti-Racism. Teachers are planning lessons, developing concept maps, and anchor charts, and technology to promote comprehension, higher order thinking skills and independence. We will continue with this work throughout the school year to deliver powerful lessons to your children. 
The PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We work together to provide our students with a caring community with common goals of nurturing caring, responsible students and promoting rigorous learning. 
I am looking forward to meeting all the children and families at Sewell Anderson. I believe teamwork and high expectations move a school forward and provide a place where children thrive and learn. I am excited about this opportunity to serve your community. 
Sue Garrity

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.
