Dear Parents,

With our first snowfall, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind all of you of the NRSD procedures regarding snow cancellations or delays.   You can find the sources that the District contacts at the following link.  NRSD School Closing Information   Our Superintendent works really hard to get every snow call right.  On the evening before, and the early morning of an expected snowfall she is in contact with other Superintendents as well as Rob Frieswick, our Director of Facilities, and with the DPW heads of our three towns and the bus company.   Ultimately, she makes the call based on how safely we can get students and staff to and from school and whether we can operate safely while students are in school.

We have had several questions recently regarding the Ski program coordinated by our parents at Mount Wachusett.  I am told there is still time to register at the following link, 2017 Ski Club   Skiing starts the Friday after school vacation.  Karen Cudmore, the parent who coordinates the program, will drop off kids' passes at the office during the week we return from vacation.

Also, I was asked to reach out to the parents of our first and second graders that the Bolton Hoops Basketball development program for  Basketball grades 1 & 2 is still accepting registrations.

Our Robotics team continue to roll through competitions. Last week, one of the teams, including students Lizzy Carpenter, Yi Chen, Tyler Mignault, and Ashton Molzahn took 1st place in the qualifier for the Robotautica State Championship at WPI. In addition to winning the overall tournament, the team also won the Robot Performance Award. Two more of our teams competed this weekend as well and, I believe, may have qualified for state wide competition.

Save the Date -  The annual family trivia night competition is scheduled for Friday, January 19th, 2018.  Details can be found on this link  Trivia Night Info   All proceeds benefit the 8th grade class fundraising efforts.  

Our Lost and Found (especially in the Emerson Wing) is overflowing with winter outerwear.  Please remind the kids to look for lost items.  Items still remaining in the Emerson Wing next week will be moved to the Florence Sawyer Lost & Found area.

PAC reminds us that the next PAC meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, December 12, at 9:00 a.m. in the FSS Cafeteria.  Also, PAC is sponsoring a Dining for Dollars Fundraiser at Bertucci’s, Solomon Pond on December 20, from 2:00-9:30 p.m.  Click Here for Bertucci’s Coupon.

Yours in partnership,

Joel Bates,
