In the Schoolhouse

Is Spring Really Here??!

Old Man Winter just doesn’t want to take his leave quickly this year. We have now had seven snow days, and some slight changes have been made to the calendar.  Please see the note below from Superintendent Haggerty regarding the end of the school year.

Dear Parent/Guardian:

As we all know, this has been a very snowy and stormy winter!  

 Due to the inclement weather on Tuesday, March 14th, it was necessary to cancel school.  Given the amount of snow days we have had this year, before the 14th, we were up to 6 snow days and our last day was to be Thursday, June 22, 2017.  In order not to have to bring students back for an additional day, it was decided to cancel the Union #28 full day professional development day on May 5th. Therefore, Friday, May 5, 2017 will be a regular school day.

Thank you,

Superintendent Jennifer J Haggerty

Starlight’s Youth Theater is performing Annie Jr.  The whole cast is elementary level.  2nd grader Susana Wolf from LES will be performing at the 7:00p.m. show.  The show is April 1st 2017.  The tickets are running out fast so if you want to see the show get your tickets now!  Annie Jr. is not the same as the movie or the book. But it is a good musical.  So if you want to see the musical get your tickets now.  If you don’t know the names of the songs, here are some of the names: Tomorrow, Hard Knock Life, Maybe, Easy Street, and Little Girls.  The show is at Amherst Regional Middle School and there is also a 2:00p.m. show.
