Massachusett Statewide Family Engagement
We have launched a new series of family literacy calendars, designed to spark conversation and enjoyment for early readers. A new calendar will be released each month, listing easily accessible read-alouds, online activities, and ideas for playing with language with young children. The activities take inspiration from the seasons, major holidays, and lesser-known special days such as Talk Like a Pirate Day and National Make Your Bed Day.
Educational programs offered through the Old Rochester Regional, Marion, Mattapoisett and Rochester School Districts do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, homelessness or disability in admission to, access to, treatment in or employment in its programs and activities. Furthermore, these school districts affirm the rights of all children with disabilities to a free, appropriate public education. Children living in Marion, Mattapoisett or Rochester who have a specific disability, and who need special education are entitled to special education services. For additional information and to make a referral for an evaluation to determine special education eligibility, contact your Building Principal or the Director of Student Services.
