    Grade 6 STEM Day Guest Speakers needed! JUNE 1ST

    This year we are excited to host our very own STEM day at Millbury Street Elementary School on Friday, June 1st. We are in need of parent volunteers who can share their experiences and excitement regarding their STEM occupation.  With your help we can motivate our students to think outside the box and broaden their understanding of how engineering and science impacts the world around us.  How can we help our students meet the demands of the future? How can we foster an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math? Our students will be entering a 21st century workplace, into careers using technology and information that have not yet been discovered. Through the use of STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering, and math, schools are able to bring to life these crucial areas of education.  Thank you for all your support. You make the difference! 

    Message from the School Lunch Program
     
    The School Lunch Program is featuring new recipes this month on Mondays.  As part of the Meatless Mondays science-based initiative, the School Lunch Program hopes your children will take the opportunity to try out meals made with plant-based protein.  As an educational initiative, you can also learn at www.meatlessmondays.com and John Hopkins Center for a Living Future how this can be good for your child's health and the health of the environment.  There are also recipes on these websites that you can try at home.  As we see the growth of consumers choosing to add plant-based protein to their diets, we strive to keep with the trends and allow the children to have new healthy recipes to try.  You will see on the menus that there will still be meat options as well.  Also please note that the online menus are interactive and you can click on the items to see nutritional facts and allergy information.

     School Banking  

    Millbury Street Elementary School participates in Save for America, the School Savings Program, sponsored by Homefield Credit Union. The voluntary program gives students the opportunity to open and maintain a savings account while at school.  Students will learn the principles of saving, how to manage money, and the importance of investing money for a return.  The Homefield Credit Union will begin new accounts with a $5.00 balance.  Students with new or existing accounts will be allowed to make deposits to their accounts on Wednesday mornings each week. Accounts from both North and South Grafton Elementary will be transferred to Millbury Street Elementary School.

    CARES Certificates

    MSES staff and students can nominate a school community member for a CARES certificate when they have witnessed a deliberate act that exemplifies the core values of: Cooperation, Assertiveness, Responsibility, Empathy and Self-control.  Mrs. Coakley, Mr. Tucker or Mrs. Stocklin presents the certificate to the nominated student in their classroom so everyone can show appreciation for their kind act.  Already this school year we have presented over 45 certificates!

    Lunch Menus

    Lunch menus are no longer being printed for every student. It can be accessed from the web page under Food Services. Families who are in need of a hard copy can request one through their child’s teacher. Free and Reduced lunch forms are available in hard copy from the school office or online.

    Friendly Reminder! Student Morning Drop Off

    Please do not drop children off at the school’s main entrance in the morning. Only buses may use this drive. If your child is being dropped off in the morning please pull into the main parking lot and drop your child off curbside at the side entrance to the building. Please try to have your child hop out of the car on the sidewalk and avoid pulling out from the curb and passing cars that children are exiting. Children may begin to enter the building at 8:10AM. The instructional day begins at 8:25AM. Any child arriving after that time is tardy and must check into to the office with the adult dropping them off. Thank you for your help!

    Reminder - Walking to School Wednesdays now until December and MSES Spirit Wear Days are held the last Friday of every month!
