Dear Parents,

This week projects to have more seasonable temperatures at this point.  Please remind your children to dress for the weather as we will likely be outside most of the week, barring a drop in temperatures or rain.

I want to remind all parents to be conscious of the speed you may be traveling around campus, especially given the potential of slippery conditions this time of year.  Also, please park only in designated parking areas at the Emerson and Sawyer wings and at the Sawyer Wing only on the right side of Mechanic Street.  We thank you in advance for your continued attention to this requests.

I want to call your attention tonight to two flyers your children will be bringing home.  One flyer is for the FSS Talent Show & Lip Sync on March 2, 2018. The “Talent Sync” is open to student performers in grades 4-8. The other  is from the Tom Denney Nature Camp which runs during the summer open to students entering kindergarten through eighth grade.

I am happy to announce that after an absence of several years, FSS is bringing back the Spelling Bee! A change in the rules now allows schools to self-sponsor without a newspaper affiliation.  Thanks to the research of eighth grader Ian Winiarski, the direction of FSS Library Media Specialist Michael Caligiuri and the generous sponsorship of PAC, we are in the beginning stages of the 2018 Spelling Bee.  Over the next couple of weeks, classes will be identifying class and grade level representatives for the schoolwide Spelling Bee on February 15.

The FSS Drama Society begins the final push to bring, Fiddler on the Roof, one of the most beloved musicals of all time to the FSS Auditorium on February 2 and 3.

Remember that this coming Friday, I will be hosting our Annual Family Trivia Night in the Sawyer Wing Cafeteria.  Family trivia is always a fun time.  We hope you can join us!  We’d prefer if you register in advance for planning purposes but ( at the time of this writing) there should be tickets at the door.  To register online, click on Family Trivia Night

I have also been asked to pass along that registration remains open for Nashoba Youth Lacrosse and will close on February 1.  Nashoba Lacrosse is open to boys in grades K-8.  They draw from Bolton, Clinton, Lancaster, Maynard and Stow.  The link to register online  can be found at Nashoba Youth Lacrosse

Yours in partnership,

Joel Bates,
