Our next PTO meeting is scheduled for on January 9th, 2012 from 7:30am-8:15. We will post the agenda for the meeting prior to that date.

Grades 1 and 5 proudly announce the re-opening of the Squantum School Store.
What is it?
The School Store is cooperatively run by fifth and first grade students. The students have specific, math-related tasks in selling school-related merchandise.
The purpose of the school store is to provide students with authentic math opportunities and the chance to work with students in other grades. Teachers have created lessons that support the skills necessary to make transactions, calculate profit, and make ordering decisions. Store activities are tied in with the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework in Mathematics, with an emphasis on Number Sense and Operations, and Data Analysis.
When is it open?
The store will be open on Friday afternoons. Students may visit the store at the discretion of the teacher so that the educational services are not interrupted. Students will be given advance notice of when the store is open. This year, the store will be open:
$$ Important $$
We ask that students use change or dollar bills to make purchases in insure that students aren’t overwhelmed by large amounts of change. Items are priced to facilitate transactions.

We are happy to report that our Reading Counts program is up and running and we are looking for some parent volunteers to help us out.
Reading Counts is an independent reading program that motivates and encourages our students to become better readers. The program is used as a supplement to our reading curriculum which allows students to monitor their own progress and set goals to improve their overall achievement levels in reading.
We are looking for some parent volunteers to assist us for a few hours a week in the media center in order to make the program available for students on a regular basis. Please complete the form below and return it to your child’s classroom teacher or send an email to email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering.
Thank you in advance for supporting this important literacy program and special thanks to parent Lori Marsters, Doreen Douglas for coordinating the program and volunteer schedule this year.
