Develop a Passion for Learning
 

“I believe that education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push and educational message.” Steve Irwin
 
As educators, leaders, parents, and concerned citizens, many of us are in a position to be an agent of change. Our minds and voices interact and collaborate every day to face the obstacles and hurdles that affect our community. Deeply stirred by educational issues faced by our students, we search for the illusive “thing” that drives the change we so eagerly seek. Why are we enthusiastic about certain causes and what shapes our stances on particular issues? What force propels us to become educators? Why do we devote our lives to educating our students and children?

The answer is passion. Passion motivates us to strive and achieve goals that are meaningful to us. We all learn from one another, even my own learning is thought provokingly challenged and altered every day. Endless possibilities exist, and we should all be excited to provide our students with the educational tools to pursue their dreams, passions, and unlock the many opportunities that await them.

A message from the school nurses:

2.4.2015
The school nurses would like to inform and reassure parents that we are tracking any and all symptoms that may be related to the recent multi-state outbreak of measles. To date there have been no reported cases in Massachusetts. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention believes it is likely that a visitor who was infected with measles visited a theme park on the West Coast during their infectious period.

Measles is a disease caused by a virus. It may present as cold or flu symptoms at first. A few days later a red blotchy rash starts on the face, and then spreads to the body. It is most dangerous for children under the age of 5 and those with a weakened immune system.

All school age children in Massachusetts are required to have 2 doses of the MMR (Mumps, Measles and Rubella) vaccine to attend. The first dose should not be given before the child’s first birthday. The second dose is required before the child starts kindergarten.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact your childs’s pediatrician.
