Boutwell Baseball Day
On Tuesday, May 9th, students and staff will be participating in Boutwell Baseball Day! Mrs. Bishop, our physical education teacher has been busy teaching students about baseball and we’re going to show off our skills! We will play a friendly game of baseball with our friends. Please have your child bring in his/her baseball/softball glove to school on that day. In addition, they are encouraged to wear their favorite baseball t-shirt, hat, sunscreen and sneakers!
Shawsheen “Move Up Day”
On Thursday, May 11th our Kindergarten students will visit the Shawsheen Elementary School. They will visit classrooms, meet teachers and take a tour of the school. Please make sure to return your child’s permission form. All students must have a signed permission form in order to attend.
Recess – Sunscreen
The children are enjoying the sunshine during outdoor recess now that Mother Nature is cooperating! Sunscreen 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 stay hydrated.
I would like to thank all the students, families and staff who donated items to the Wilmington Food Pantry. Our donated goods have been delivered and your generosity is greatly appreciated!
May Community Project – Local Heroes
This month we will be collecting toiletries from May 2nd - 26th to be donated to local Veterans Hospitals. We will be collecting toothpaste, tooth brushes, Q-tips, Band-Aids, shampoo, dental floss, baby wipes, disposable razors, soap, deodorant, fingernail clippers, tweezers, gum, playing cards, magazines and granola bars.
