Whitin Weekly May 5th

Dear Whitin Families,

The following is the update for the week of May 5, 2019.

MCAS math testing begins this week.

4th and 5th grade will test on Monday and Tuesday

6th and 7th grade will test on Wednesday and Thursday

Please ensure that your children get a good night sleep, have a health breakfast and are on time for school during the testing week.

I ask for your help in reminding your children to be respectful of the school grounds as well as the neighbors’ yards.  There are many students who are walking on the neighbor’s lawns and not respecting their property. Students who are picked up from school should be reminded to stay on the sidewalk even as they pass the school grounds.  I thank you for your help in this matter.

Whitin PTO

The Whitin PTO is looking for new members to join the board.  There are several positions available. We need your help in filling these positions.  The PTO sponsors many events throughout the year which benefit all the students. Without the help of volunteers these events are not possible.  Being a part of the board requires one meeting per month and any help you can provided in planning, organizing and attending events throughout the year.  Email Bethann Lafontaine if you are interested in joining the board next year. blafontaine24@icloud.com
