Early Dismissal Procedures

All parents/guardians who pickup a child early from school will be asked to show ID.  While Mrs. Sacco and the office staff know many parents, we ask for everyone’s cooperation with this practice for consistency.  We understand that checking IDs does add a minute to the dismissal process and we thank you in advance for your ongoing partnership as we take proactive steps to continue to ensure all children’s safety.

A One-Man Christmas Carol Performance--Wednesday, December 17 at 7:30pm
$10 Students; $20 Adults
Witness the classic tale of A Christmas Carol come beautifully to life as actor J.T. Turner portrays Charles Dickens and every single character from the story in this one-man show. All the voices and emotions and intensities of the characters that we all know and love elegantly spoken and acted out by just one man.
Charles Dickens was famous for bringing his A Christmas Carol to life for audiences every year and this version brings in all the drama, comedy and redemption as Dickens had originally written it. Now in its 18th year, this show has become a North Shore tradition for many families.
The newly launched Wakefield PPAL is for families who are experiencing the challenges of bringing up children with emotional and mental health challenges.  The meetings are free and open to the public.  The group meets on the First and Third Tuesday of each month from 6:30PM to 8:30PM at the Horizon House- 78 Water Street, Wakefield.   
Paper Retriever Recycling
Please do not put paper in or around the Paper Retriever if it is full.  It has been blowing away.  We are hoping to get back to a regular schedule with the company to empty the bin.  It has new ownership.  
Thank you for your understanding.
