Hello Assawompset Families:


Dear Families, 

    The health and safety of our students, families, and staff are always our top priority. 

As we head into the new year, we want to acknowledge that there have been many illnesses this season.  Families have inquired about Covid-19 testing and/or the availability of sending home test kits. In recognition of this, our district nurses have acquired Covid-19 test kits through the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. 

    To those that may need it, we would like to offer a Covid-19 test kit .  The kits can be sent home per parent/guardian request. There is a limited supply and will be given on an as needed basis.   Please reach out via email and I will send a kit home with your student. 

    We would like to note that there have been no current changes to practices or guidelines on Covid-19 at this time.  FLRSD continues to follow the MA guidance which can be found at:

As always please contact your school nurse with any questions.


Nancy Amaral RN,BSN and  FLRSD Nurses -


Ms. T. is still looking for parent/teen volunteers to help prepare for our art show in March. Work can be done at school (with CORI/fingerprints), at home, or at the Lakeville Library during February vacation. If you or your teen are interested, return this form: telerecruit24.pdf THANK YOU SO MUCH!!


K: This week we worked on keeping a steady beat and playing piano and forte with our instruments. 

1st: It’s official…the 1st grade performance in honor of their Grandparents, will be held on Wednesday, April 10 @ 10:00am in the AES gymnasium! Information was sent home on Monday! Stay tuned for more details as we get closer! 

2nd: This week we reviewed our rhythm patterns and played a fun game in teams where students had to identify rhythm patterns to earn points for their team!

3rd: It’s time for recorders!! Please return the permission slip and check for $5.50 for the recorders by Tuesday, January 16th! 


We are starting our fun research projects! Students in kindergarten are picking an animal and listening to facts on Pebble Go. After they have one fact, they come and tell me and we compile all of our fun animal facts on a Google Doc. In first grade, students are picking an animal of their choice and writing down facts about their body, habitat, food and life cycle. Grades 2 and 3 are also picking their own topic of an animal or a biography and are writing down their facts. We have learned a lot of facts this week!


This week in PE we are continuing our fitness unit and focusing on exercising. Students are doing a jump battle, hula hoop contest, and playing a fast paced game called “Steal the treasure” where students run, dive, and slide to steal treasure and if they are caught must complete a number of jumping jacks or squats to reenter the game. 


The Kindergarten students were very excited about the snow this week.  It was a great week to talk about the weather with snow, rain, wind, and warm and cold temperatures. We discussed how different types of weather effect what we do and how we dress.  In the Wonders Program our question this week was, “What do people use to do their jobs? “  This was a great time to talk about our community helpers.  We read Whose shoes?  A Shoe for Every Job, in which we explored other jobs where specific things are needed like tools, machines, and uniforms.  In Math we are beginning to learn about the concept of addition.  We learned that the + sign means to put things together and that the answer is always the biggest number in the equation.  We also learned about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the importance of being kind and including others.


Hello first grade families,

This past Tuesday, students learned about the 80’s. Students complete a graphing activity using sour patch kids. First, students sorted and then graphed the number of each color they had. Students also completed a “How-to Writing” on how to use a slap bracelet. 

This week our Essential Question is How can you find your way around? 

Students read Me on the Map and learned about the many types of maps. Some maps that show countries, towns, and rooms. We also learned that some maps can show directions North, South, East and West. We learned how maps tell us where to go? We have also been learning about Martin Luthur King, Jr.


Our students sure were excited about the snow this week! We have been doing activities tied to this exciting winter season, along with studying Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in honor of his accomplishments. Students are working hard on animal research projects and reading about various animals. We also celebrated “80s Day” on our 80th day of school by working with the number 80 and completing several activities along with this theme. 


Grade three continues to work on multi-step word problems. Our next math unit will be fractions.Our current selections in Wonders reading are about planets, space, and the solar system. It works out well because in science we are learning about force and motion and magnetism; it all goes together! In writing we are working on supporting opinions with evidence and detail.

We had a visit from the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra on Wednesday, in preparation for classroom visits next week. In March we will attend their Young People’s Concert; it’s one of our favorite field trips.

A note from PTO:

Thank you and have a great day!
