PAC Updates

PAC’s Annual FSS Night at Fenway Park promises to be a spectacular game with the Red Sox playing the defending World Series Champion Houston Astros on September 7th!  This is a game that should be a preview of the playoffs and a game that should have playoff implications. Even though we are going to the game in our next school year (September 7) we have to secure the tickets this year (Deadline to order is June 15).  Please use the following form FSS Night at Fenway Park  Please contact Stacey Dupuis at fsspac@nrsd.net with any questions.


Principal’s Update-

Dear Parents,


It is a busy time of year as we are wrapping up our placement process, teacher evaluation process and closing out our school year while preparing for the next.  I apologize for not getting the Happenings out consistently over the last couple of weeks.


I’d like to start tonight by thanking those of you that have taken the time to fill out a 2018 Parent Survey.  The 2018 Parent Survey will remain open through the end of the school year.  


Also, I’m happy to announce that Fred Hohn and Stacey Dupuis will be joining the FSS School Council for the 2018-2019 school year.  My thanks go out to both individuals for stepping into these roles.


Please check out the PAC Night at Fenway Form above. Don’t wait if you are considering going. Even though the game is played on September 7, PAC will need to let the Red Sox know by June 15.   


Honoring All School Volunteers - The staff of Florence Sawyer School would like to invite anyone who has volunteered in our school during the past year to a reception in their honor on Monday, June 18th at 3:30.  In case the invitation got lost getting home, we have included it here. Please RSVP and let us know if you need babysitting so we can plan accordingly. Looking forward to seeing lots of you there.


Finally tonight, I want to let you know about several staffing changes in the coming school year.  Retiring from FSS are Library Aide Amy Risciutti and Instructional Assistant Dee Sanderson. Please join me in thanking them for their years of commitment and dedication to our school and to our students.  


Additionally, it is with bittersweet feelings that I let you know that Assistant Principal Steve Grant will be filling the role of Assistant Principal at Luther Burbank Middle School next year.  This is a great opportunity for Mr. Grant and a tremendous addition to the administrative team in Lancaster. I cannot begin to list the number of ways that Mr. Grant has shaped our school with his tireless dedication and his unwavering commitment to the extended Florence Sawyer Community.  


As change begets change, I am also pleased to announce that joining the Florence Sawyer School administrative team will be Mr. Brian Cote.  Mr. Cote is currently one of the Assistant Principals at Nashoba Regional High School. As a middle school vice principal and now in that role at the high school level, Mr. Cote has long been an advocate for students, particularly students who struggle.  He is excited to bring that passion to FSS and will be joining us for several end of the year events.


Yours in partnership,



Joel Bates,

Principal
