March is Women’s History Month!  Students will engage in a special treat as each week the special subject teachers will focus on a different women and their contributions.  This will include artists, athletes, women in science and musicians. So ask your kids who they learned about each week.  :)  

                                                                     KID’S CABINET

Kid’s Cabinet met this week to discuss Ramadan, which begins on March 10th.  A huge part of Ramadan is the act of empathy and giving to others - the Kid’s Cabinet has been invited to assist AES in the Clothing Drive scheduled for March 16th (as stated above under dates).  Please see the flier below for information and 2 great videos!

  Ramadan - Did You Know?


Kindergarten students read Pete's a Pizza

Firsties finished their sushi collages; look for them on Ms. T.’s instagram #assawompsetartroom!

Second graders learned about symmetry, creating creatures with oil pastels.

Third graders used foam stickers to create printing plates for printmaking.


K: This week in K we learned about form in music and we used the parachute to explore it for each different section of our piece of music! 

1st: If you have not sent in a white t-shirt for the tie-dye project, please do so as soon as possible! 

2nd: This week we worked on more songs for the big performance in May! We also had time for a few movement games.

3rd: This week the 3rd graders worked on playing their recorders and we played our first song! 


This week in PE students are practicing stick handling playing a scavenger hunt like game to practice moving in space. Students are then practicing offense and defensive skills in a game called gates and gatekeepers. 

Students in grade 2 and 3 are also playing a target game where they are able to practice passing/shooting skills.


We are gearing up for the Book Fair! Students are watching the Book Fair preview videos this week and are getting excited about the Book Fair. Our Book Fair will be next week, March 11th to the 15th. Students will be able to visit and purchase items during their library time. If they are absent, Friday will be a makeup day that students will be able to come. We are all looking forward to it and many thanks to the PTO for putting it on for our students!


Kindergarten students were excited to participate in our school’s mock election this week. It gave us a great overview of the process. Pete the Cat received the majority of the votes! Thank you to the students and teachers that put it all together! This week we read Rain by Manya Stojic. In this story, the animals of the African savanna use their senses to track the storm. We discussed ways that people use their senses to gather information about the weather. In math we practiced mixed addition and subtraction equations, paying close attention to the sign, or operation. The students are definitely gaining accuracy and confidence with their facts!


Happy March! The first graders have been continuously working hard. In reading, we are focusing on the essential question, “How do animals help each other?” This question has led us to read many interesting stories about animals and have insightful conversations. The students are very knowledgeable on animals and have brainstormed great ideas on how animals help each other. In first grade we are continuing to work on spelling and writing words that have the magic -e rule in them. In math students are learning to make a ten to add and adding 3 numbers. The first graders were also very excited to vote in the mock election this week, where Pete the Cat took the lead. This fun, school wide activity prompted great discussions in class on voting. Keep up the hard work!!!image of pete the cat


And the winner is………. “Pete the Cat”   

The children, this week,  had a great time learning about the voting process.  They learned about all 5 “candidates'' and  each of their individual character traits . We also talked about which traits would make a good leader. Ask your child to tell you about the” candidates” and their individual character traits.  Maybe you have some of the books at home.  If so, reread the books with your child and talk about the traits of the characters.  These lessons tied in with our story in Wonders “Grace for President” 

In math we are continuing to work on strategies for adding 3 digit numbers.  Keep practicing those math facts at home.


Grade three had a great field trip to the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra for their Young People’s Concert. The kids were wonderful, engaged and well behaved. We hope they had positive things to say about the experience!

We continue with telling time and other forms of measurement in math. In science we are still working on animal adaptations.

With our STEM curriculum night fast approaching, we are looking for empty 500ml water bottles. Thanks in advance for any you can send in!

Nurse’s Nook

Attendance is so important for student success!

        Absenteeism is directly affecting your child's learning and comprehension, but also fellow classmates.  Teachers have to “catch the student up” while providing direction to others.  Arriving tardy is also disruptive to learning.  When your child arrives late to school, it not only disrupts your child’s learning but also the teacher’s lesson and other students’ learning. 

        The school day begins at 9:10 am (with student drop off in the cafeteria beginning at 9:00 am) and ends at 3:15 pm.  Again, the school is willing to assist your family in creating a positive educational experience for your child.  Please contact us should you or your child require assistance. 

        Please note that the AES Handbook states the following situations as excused absences:

  • Documented illness or injury -   Major religious observations

  • Documented Medical/ dental appointments -   Bereavement/family funeral  

  • Extraordinary family circumstances (excused at the discretion of the principal)

        Communication with the school nurse is vital for a continuity of care after an illness.  Please do not hesitate to include me when planning to return to school, or when recovering from an illness.  

Thank you and have a great day!

Bethany Pineault, Principal
