Report Cards

Hello all!

It has been brought to my attention that some students and parents are wondering why their child's grade changed from trimester 1 to trimester 2. There was a miscommunication that occurred while I was away on paternity leave. No one should have received a 4 for the first trimester. I apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused you. 

I use the national standards that have been put out by SHAPE America. Each standard has a breakdown associated with it. The district however puts the entire standard on the report card and each standard (there are 5) is very thorough, so there is quite a bit of information that each grade level must learn. That is why most, if not all kids, are at a 2 "approaching proficiency" for the better part of the year.

Again I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused the students, and their families. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions

All the Best!

Mr. C

Passport to Winter Fun 2017

What is the Passport to Winter Fun?
The Passport program is an elementary school fitness program that encourages children and their families to remain physically active during New England’s long winter season. Participants track the days on which they have been active for 60 minutes or more of physical activity in their passport, progressing through levels of achievement when they have completed 10, 20 or 30 days of activity within the six-week program period. At each of these achievement milestones, the children receive their choice of a fun incentive prize

What prizes can my child redeem if they complete 10, 20, and 30 days of physical activity?
Inside your child's Passport, there will be a yellow sheet that has a list of all of the businesses offering incentive prizes. When your child reaches 10, 20, and 30 days of activity, they can bring their Passport to one of the businesses to redeem a prize! Please do not visit a location more than once- this puts a strain on the business. Also, make sure to say thank you to these wonderful places that are supporting our local kids!!

How do I enter my child into the Grand Prize Raffle?
Fill in the back flap of the Passport and hand it in to your child's school by March 15th, 2017 to be entered into the Grand Prize raffle. You can also mail the back flap directly to the Upper Valley Trails Alliance:
