Dear Calais Families,
This week was a busy one for many of our students. On Thursday, our kindergarteners took a trip to Morse Farm to learn about maple sugaring and folks from Kellogg-Hubbard Library led story time with our preschoolers. Our oldest students are working away on their Sixth Grade Service Projects. In the coming weeks students will be greening up, raising funds for local organizations, painting walls at non-profits, helping coach younger children’s sports teams, volunteering at the town garage and with the town cemetery commission, and more! THANK YOU to our sixth grade parents for their support of this endeavor. All these exciting and meaningful projects would not be possible without your help throughout the experience.
Next week on Thursday, April 2nd and Friday, April 3rd we will serve an early lunch and then dismiss all students at 12:30 for parent-teacher conferences. Please remember to arrive a few minutes early and keep an eye on the clock during your conference. We want to be sure that each family has a meaningful and equitable conference experience.
On these conference afternoons, we will have hard copies of the family climate survey available outside each classroom. If you have not already completed the survey by that time, please consider quickly filling out a form and dropping it off in the envelope that will be taped to the main office door. We would love to top last year’s total response count of 47. You can also take the survey online :

Your feedback and ideas are important to us; results from this survey guide our Continuous Improvement Planning process and other important work.
This coming Monday, March 30th is Beach Day! Students will experience the fun in the sun during their P.E. classes and enjoy a picnic lunch. Summery, beachy, and still school-appropriate outfits along with beach towels for the picnic are encouraged! John Fish deserves a thank-you-in-advance for all the extra time and effort it takes to pull off a great Beach Day.
Have a fabulous weekend!
