What's Happening?

  • Dear Boutwell Families,

                Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are excited you’ll be joining our Boutwell family! Throughout the summer, the staff has worked tirelessly to prepare for our first day of school on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

                Along with the dedicated staff, I will work diligently to support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child, and maintain personal connections with families.  All children are more successful when we work together as a team to achieve educational goals.

                I invite you to become an active member in our school community by volunteering, joining the Parent Advisory Council or the School Advisory Council, and attending school activities and events whenever possible.

                There are many ways to stay connected and up to date on all the wonderful learning taking place within the building. To communicate efficiently with families, information will be shared on the district and school websites – www.wpsk12.com, Twitter-@Boutwell36, Blackboard Connect School Messenger-phone messages and emails, and monthly newsletters sent home in your child’s backpack.        

                As a reminder, Kindergarten and Preschool orientation is on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. I look forward to meeting with you and having a very positive and productive year together.



    Kristen Walsh

    Director, Boutwell Early Childhood Center
