Hello Assawompset Families,

The year is coming to an end and is always such a bittersweet time for us educators.  As much as we may need a break, just as the children do, we leave school on the last day feeling accomplished and proud, yet also feeling a bit empty.  We are non stop every single day and those buses leave on the last day - and …..  it all stops.  It gives us a time to reflect and recharge for next year!

This is a HUGE THANK YOU for everything!  Your support, dedication and pride for the community of Lakeville and for our school is admirable and appreciated by all!

REMINDER:  (Reposted from Last Week)

We have some very exciting news!  Assawompset Elementary School is undergoing a major renovation this summer where all windows and doors will be replaced.  This major renovation will take place this summer with completion by the opening of school in September, 2023.  

Please note that the Assawompset Elementary School will be CLOSED during this renovation and Joanne Andrews (Administrative Assistant) and myself will be housed at the George. R. Intermediate School this summer.  Please see the attached letter outlining the project.

A look into our classrooms:


Please return all library books by the end of the school year! Thank you so much for a great year and please visit the Lakeville Public Library this summer. Miss Teresa has a lot of fun activities for children of all ages!

This week, students are wrapping up Coding with Awbie! Students are really enjoying playing through the challenging levels while building their problem solving skills. 


For our last week in PE students in grade 2 and 3 are playing team handball, a game that reviews many of the concepts we have practiced together this year. In grade 1 and K we are playing  a target game to review throwing and defending.  


Kindergarten students completed their fish bowl paintings.

Grades one and three did some fun summer centers.

Grade two used Ms. T.’s shape stencils to create a very small, intricate design.

Stay in touch with the art room this summer! Everyone in grades K-2 will get a flyer with a Flat Bob Ross. It will include a QR code to upload pictures of your child(ren) with Bob. The pictures will be featured at Open House next fall!


This week all classes K-3 participated in a music obstacle course! Everyone had fun playing instruments, tossing bean bags, using hula hoops, etc. 


This week in kindergarten students reviewed ELA and math concepts that have been previously taught.  We enjoyed special activities and looking back on how much we have learned and grown.  It has been an amazing year, have a safe and fun summer! 

Grade 1

Students are working hard on reviewing all of the final lessons of the year.  We are enjoying creating our Animal Exhibit Showcase and have finally gotten to the Arts & Crafts portion of our Animal Research.  Through this form of learning and displaying, we are able to learn more about animals and make deeper Science Connections about various habitats and animal features.  We are also excited about all of our end of year activities, celebrating a great year of learning and growth.  We hope families enjoy all of the learning that can happen locally over the Summer and are excited to hear about the success of Summer Reading through the Lakeville Library in the Fall! 

Grade 2

Grade 2 students continue to work hard. They are finishing up classroom assignments and are preparing for our second grade showcase by putting the finishing touches on their graphs, research and presentations. As we end the school year, we reflect with our students on this past year and also look forward to what is to come. It is certainly an exciting time of year! 

Grade 3

The Grade 3 Wax Museum was a huge success! The kids were so proud to show off their hard work. Thank you for coming to support your kids; we appreciate all of you! Now we are looking forward to our Splash into GRAIS party Friday morning, and the ice cream social on Friday. We are very close to handing newly minted fourth graders over to their proud parents!

Kindergarten, First and Second Grade Students

Would you like to be an AES Pen Pal?

Each summer children move to Lakeville and need a friend when they start school.  YOU could be that friend!  As a pen pal, your responsibility will be to contact the new student through letters, phone calls, emails or even play dates during the summer.  This way the new student will have you as a friend and feel included as a part of AES when school starts in September.  You may also be lucky enough to be in the same class!

If you would like to be an AES pen pal, please have your family complete the information on this form and return it to me by Friday, June 16th.
