Value of the Month: Cooperation

Your family is the most important “team” that you will ever work with!

To be successful everyone in the family needs to:

• Respect each other’s space and belongings
• Listen to each other
• Do chores at the right time and with a good attitude
• Learn how to work out problems without fighting
• Communicate well so that everyone knows what is happening
• Spend time together as a family
• Celebrate each other’s successes
• Support each other through sad times
• Learn to share

More Coming Here Soon!

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

What's Happening This Month At Sisson - School Year 2019-2020
Picture of Icons

Pen In Hand Icon

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As many of you know, during the October 22, 2019 PTO meeting, Dr. Patrick Tutwiler, the Superintendent of Lynn, Pubic Schools, was our quest speaker. During that meeting, parents had the opportunity to ask questions and voice their concerns. One of the concerns, was the lack of physical activity the students have during the day. This has always been a problem at the Sisson School due to the lack of space.

I am happy to announce that with the help of Dr. Patrick Tutwiler, Kim Powers, Deputy Superintendent, and some financial support from the district, we have a plan to get the students moving.

We will begin, “the 10-minute Tool Kit” in all classrooms in late January. The 10-minute toolkit is a fun and engaging set of activities involving mindfulness and movement. Sharon Marrama, a well-known and respected yoga teacher will train the faculty during the professional development sessions in January and February. We will implement the activities after the January training.

I also have a meeting this month to meet with the Food Project, a strong partner with the Lynn Public Schools, to discuss setting up a raised bed to grow vegetables. This will be a great active learning opportunity for Sisson students in the spring.

I believe this is a great approach to increasing physical activity during the school day and giving the students an opportunity to be actively involved in their learning.

Thank You.

Ms. Franklin

Welcome To The Edward A. Sisson Elementary School

Dear Parent/Guardian,
Another school year is under way and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with your children.
Some information follows to ensure your child’s school year is a happy and successful one.

  • “Every Student Every Day” Attendance is extremely important. Your child must be in school every day. Please try to schedule doctor and dentist appointments for after school hours or on Saturday. In addition, please plan your vacations during school vacations.
  • Upon return to school from an absence, Please send a parent or doctor note in with your child if he/she is absent explaining the reason and date of the absence.
  • School begin at 7:45.It is important that all students are here on time because breakfast is served promptly at 7:45 and ends at 8:00. Also, when they are late, they miss valuable instructional time.
  • Check each night to see what your child has for homework. Homework must be completed each night and returned the following morning.
  • Students are not allowed to use cell phones in school, therefore the teacher will collect each cell phone and they will be kept in the office until the end of the school day.
  • Kindergarten students will enter and leave the building through the side door labeled AI. Grade 1 enters through the back door that is located on the back school yard labeled BI  Grade 2- 5 will enter through the front doors labeled A2.

During inclement weather (rain, snow or under 20 degrees) ALL students will enter through the front doors. (A2)

  • Identification-All visitors must ring the bell to enter the school building and state reason for visit. All visitors MUST report to the main office upon entering the building. You must leave their license and receive a badge. The secretary will be very happy to assist you.
  • Free Breakfast and Lunch for every child.
  • The Sisson School does not have parties, so please do not send in any candy or goodies.
  • No Dogs allowed on School Property at any time per Lynn City Ordinance.

I am looking forward to another great year.
Sincerely,
Ms. Franklin
Principal-Sisson School

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.
