Students will begin MAP assessments this week. This is a computer-based assessment for literacy and mathematics. Students will have time scheduled over the next few weeks to complete the MAP. This is our second year using this tool. Teachers use the data from the MAP to plan for instructional groups. The MAP will be administered again in the spring, in order to track student progress.

On Monday, September 23rd from 7:00 – 8:00 pm, we will hold a parent forum at the Winthrop School Library to discuss the district’s safety curriculum, Kids and Company: Together For Safety. This is a comprehensive program taught in grades K-2 that provides children with the skills, information, self-confidence and support necessary to prevent abduction and sexual abuse. The program takes a positive and constructive approach in helping children respond to various situations and make safe decisions.
Kids and Company has been taught in the district for the past twelve years. The forum will provide parents who are unfamiliar with the program an overview of the skills that are taught, and a chance to view the materials used.
If you have any questions about the program or the forum, please contact me at 978-626-0873.

If you are picking up or dropping off your child in a vehicle, please enter School Street off of Perkins.
This is a moving line. Do not park along this road.
If you are walking your child to school from Perkins Street, please use the crosswalk at Perkins and School to come to the playground. Please do not enter the one-way exit road. This is dangerous, as the buses are using the road to exit.
