Family Newsletter Week of 5/24/2024

Dear Brackett Families,

Sorry for the delay in this message – Happy Friday! 

It was a pleasure seeing so many of you for the Art Show Opening and the Choral performance. 

We welcome those of you who have not seen the art to come between 4-5 each day through next week. There are name tags at the front for all Art Show visitors, so that our afterschool staff know who you are. Thank you for wearing these!

The chicks are hatching in First Grade, thunderstorms are appearing out of the blue, and MCAS is over … it is definitely feeling like spring/summer! PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD WITH A WATER BOTTLE EVERY DAY! Keeping hydrated is very important!

Have a lovely long weekend honoring those who have died in service of the United States of America this Memorial Day.  We will see you Tuesday!


Dr. Vice
