No School: Just a reminder there is no school on Thursday and Friday of this week.
Parent Conferences: On December 10, many parents will have their parent teacher conferences during the school day. Teachers will send home information about signing up for a conference. On this day, students do not have school. (The PTO does provide child care during your child’s conference.)
Third Grade Concert 1: On December 13 at 1:30 pm, our Third Grade Chorus will perform at our school. Parents are invited.

Vision Screening: State regulations require that students have their vision screened at school. This will occur at Sowams on November 29 and 30 beginning at 8:30 in the morning. The Bristol Lions Club will be volunteering to do these screenings under the direction of Mrs. Flores, our school nurse teacher. More information can be found here.

Other Bits of Information
Supervision in the Morning: Please remember, supervision in the morning does not start until 7:55.
School and Bad Weather: We recently had a one hour delay of school due to the weather. With winter coming, I thought I would provide you with a few reminders:
If school is delayed, morning programs are cancelled. Also, the daycare provider at the school will be delayed as well.
If after school activities are cancelled, the daycare provider at the school is also cancelled. Some of the other daycares also cancel. If your child goes to daycare and the daycare cancels, you need to call the school to let us know how your child is getting home.
To receive text notifications of school cancellations/delays, you can sign up at the RI Broadcast Association here.
Winter Recess: We continue to go outside during the winter. Students needs to dress appropriately for outdoor recess. If there is snow on the ground, we do go outside. If children want to play in the snow, they need to have boots and snow pants to wear out to recess.
