From the Principal
Dear CBPS Community,
Fall is such an amazing season. I love watching our weather and environment transition from the summer heat to the upcoming winter.. The way the blue hues in the sky change, coupled with the transformation of fall leaves always reminds me of why New England is a great place to live. Just as the seasons signal a transition, this time of year marks a transitional period for our students. Now that we are about 6 weeks into school, the classroom expectations begin to start shifting from learning the routines and how school operates towards more learning and moving forward with student growth and development. The majority of work that the students and staff have put in so far this year is to set everyone up for future success.
As a school, we are wrapping up our initial assessments that we use as a baseline to chart areas for student growth. We have a much deeper understanding of each child and begin to tailor instruction around their strengths and areas to grow. Classroom communities functioning effectively rely on each other for support, guidance and friendship.
By the time the leaves empty from the trees, we’ll have had parent/teacher conferences, progress reports will have been sent home and there will be lots of turkey talk around! There’s a line in the late Tom Petty song Wildflowers that goes “You belong somewhere you feel free.” Hopefully the work we’ve done so far with your children give them the sense of belonging so they are free and unencumbered to grow!
Have a great long weekend -
