From the Principal

I hope you are having a fantastic summer filled with wonderful events and lots of exciting opportunities.  I’ve been lucky enough to run into many CBPS children and families and am thrilled that everyone seems to be having a great time with the extra time that summer allows for fun activities!  I wanted to share a few updates with you as we are preparing for the school year and can’t wait for the kids to join us on Wednesday, August 30.  

I’m very happy to share with you our new staff.  We are fortunate to welcome Mrs. Suzanne Lancaster (kindergarten teacher) and Ms. Jordan Balducci (Pre-Kindergarten) to our staff.  Both teachers went through a rigorous process and shined as student centered, caring and knowledgeable educators.  They will be wonderful additions to our staff.  Also, we are thrilled to retain Miss Kristin Costley at our school.  She will be teaching 2nd grade this year.  In addition, I’m excited to share that Mrs. Jenn McDermott will be our 3rd grade long-term maternity substitute for Mrs. Smith in late November.  Therefore, our roster of teachers for 17 - 18 is:

  • Pre-K: Ms. Balducci

  • Kindergarten: Miss Downey, Mrs. Gustafson, Mrs. Lancaster, Mrs. Mutch, Mrs. Papp, Mrs. Theriault

  • 1st Grade: Ms. Campbell, Mrs. Capozzi, Mrs. Dauphinais, Mrs. Rinkus, Mr. Sherman, Mrs. Woods

  • 2nd Grade: Mrs. Atwood, Ms. Caraher, Miss Costley, Mrs. Nanni, Mrs. Santanella, Mrs. Watson

  • 3rd Grade: Mrs. Achee, Mrs. Ferrone, Ms. Scapin, Mrs. Smith/Mrs. McDermott, Mrs. Tarnowicz

  • PE/Health: Mr. O’Meara (Grades PK - 2) and Mr. Phelps (Grade 3)

  • Art: Mrs. Hearn and Mrs. Raposo

  • Music: Mrs. Saunders

  • Media Block: Mrs. Keagan

In order to help plan for the school year, I just wanted to highlight some upcoming dates for you.

  • Tuesday, 8/15 - Classroom placement for students will be emailed.  A hard copy along with other information will be sent out via postal mail around the same date.  (I’ve already notified all of the internet providers for extra bandwidth so people can text/email/facebook their child’s placement!)

  • Thur. 8/24 9:30 - 10:30 - Kindergarten Meet & Greet - Kindergarten students come to the school. Parents quickly visit the class and attend a parent meeting with the principal. Students bond in their classrooms and then have a short bus ride.

  • Monday 8/28 11 AM - Noon - Grades 1 - 3 Meet & Greet - Students in Grades 1, 2 and 3 are able to come to the school during this time to meet their teachers and see their classrooms.

  • Wednesday 8/30 - First Day of School

  • Wednesday 9/13 - Curriculum Night/Open House - Parents are invited to come to school to learn more about their child’s year.  Teachers will review the learning targets, curriculum and classroom expectations.  In order to maximize the amount of time parents can spend in multiple grade levels, we will have one grade level presentation at a time.  Therefore, parents can come in at their assigned grade level time, go straight to their child’s classroom and hear the classroom teacher’s presentation.  

  • Kindergarten - 6:00 - 6:45

  • 1st Grade - 6:30 - 7:15

  • 2nd Grade - 7:00 - 7:45

  • 3rd Grade - 7:30 - 8:15

  • Specials teachers will be available in their locations between 6:45 - 7:30 PM.

We hope this allows more flexibility for parents with multiple children in the school.

Our regular correspondences from the school should begin on Aug.25 as we will continue to email weekly updates each Thursday.

Enjoy the next few weeks of summer and we look forward to seeing all of you soon!
