    Recess – Sunscreen

If you would like your child to wear sunscreen during recess, it must be applied at home before your child comes to school. Teachers are unable to apply sunscreen for students. Also, please pack your child an additional water bottle. As the temperatures begin to rise, students will be encouraged to drink more fluids to remain hydrated. 

    Parent Advisory Council

    On behalf of the Boutwell Parent Advisory Council, I’d like to thank all our families for your continued support and generous donations throughout the school year. The PAC was able to fund Boutwell T-shirts and school folders for all students, numerous enrichment programs, author visits, student prizes, and the staff appreciation luncheon.

    Thank You

    I would like to thank all the students, families and staff who donated items to the WHS Local Heroes Club. Our donations were delivered to local Veterans Hospitals, Walter Reed National Military Center and to our troops serving overseas. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

    May Community Project
