Dear Florence Roche Families,

Remember that the book fair is happening this week.  Each classroom has time scheduled to visit the book fair and make purchases.  The PTA receives a percentage of the funds generated and uses these credits to purchase books for our classrooms.  Thank you for your support of literacy enrichment for our students.  On Thursday evening between 5:30-7:30, families are invited to the book fair to browse and purchase books.  This is a great opportunity to get a jump on your holiday shopping.  Mrs. Bennett will be in the office on Thursday evening managing parent CORI form submissions for those needing an updated form on file.

On Friday, 10/29, we will celebrate the book fair and our love of reading by dressing up as a favorite book character.  All students are encouraged to dress as their favorite book character and join our celebration of literacy.  Students will not be able to wear masks that completely cover their faces.  Thank you for helping your student prepare their book character outfit. 

As a reminder, students are only allowed to ride their assigned bus this year.  If you are planning an after school play date, send a note in with your child and coordinate a parent pick up.  That will work!

As we move into the holiday season, The Commissioners of Trust Funds would like to remind families with school aged children who are experiencing financial difficulties, the Community Children’s Fund can help with food, gifts, winter clothing, etc.  If you would like to experience the joy of giving during the holiday season, the Community Children’s Fund offers several different gift giving options.  To participate in either of these holiday traditions, either giving or receiving, please contact Karen Tuomi at 978-877-6787 or email trustfunds@grotonma.gov.  Confidentiality is strictly maintained.


The Groton-Dunstable Education Foundation would like to share information with you about how they support our schools and how you can support GDEF.  If you are not already a member of their mailing list, please sign up.  The link is https://form.123formbuilder.com/5995194/form  GDEF is about to launch the Annual Giving Campaign, and wants to reach as many families as possible.  

Thank you for your support of our school and our community.
