Happy New Year! We have created a schedule for the spring testing, which will include PARCC for all students. Students in fifth grade will also participate in MCAS. We are sending the schedule out well in advance, so families can plan accordingly and help us to achieve excellent attendance for testing. This year there is only one testing window, which is a change from the two testing windows in past years.

The Fowler and Green Meadow PTO are sponsoring a night at the Boston Red Sox! Please join us on for a game against the Seattle Mariners. We have only 90 seats and they will be sold on a FIRST-COME FIRST-SERVED basis. Last year tickets sold out in just over a week, so get your order in soon! Thank you.
Annual McTeacher's Night
You are invited to McDonald's on Thursday, January 14 from 4-7 pm where Fowler Teachers and Staff will prepare your food and serve you! (Good for dining-in or the Drive-Thru).
Twenty percent of all proceeds from McTeacher's Night hours will go directly to the Fowler School.
On Monday January 11th the Fowler Cafeteria will begin offering healthy snack options during the lunch periods. We have established a few guidelines to go along with the opening of our smart snack program. Students will not be allowed to make purchases until 15 minutes after the beginning of lunch in order for them to finish their meal. We will offer healthy “A-list” approved snacks on a cash-only basis. Detailed Information on the “A-list” can be found at: http://johnstalkerinstitute.org/alist/. There will be a limit of 1 healthy snack per day, per student, and a student may not make a purchase for another student. We will schedule one homeroom per day (Monday-Friday) in the 4th and 5th grades. The 6th and 7th grades will have access on Thursdays.
Healthy Smart Snack Selections will be available for purchase for $1.00:
Scooby Doo Baked Graham Crackers
