Dear Parents,
Last night, Fowler hosted an awesome Annual Talent Show.  Congratulations to Mr. Kozik for directing an outstanding show and to all the performers for their great acts!  The Talent Show provides an opportunity for so many students to "shine" and it is always a highlight of the year.


Congratulations to our Do Right students of the week...Olivia Bakalos, Stephanie Banegas, Jack Gangloff, Dmitry Grace, Hannah Jacques, Sam Leskovac, Joella Lizotte, Mackenzie Manero, Nick Reiniger, Molly Sullivan, Robbi Tallen, Hannah Waring.

Letter from Mrs. Ferranti, School Nurse:

Over the last few weeks several parents have reported children being home sick with a "stomach bug."  Besides frequent and thorough hand washing, keeping a sick child home from school is the best way to prevent an outbreak.

Students should also be symptom free (i. e vomiting, diarrhea) for 24 hours and able to tolerate a normal diet before returning to school.

Please remember to call the absentee line (897-6753) every day that you keep your child home. Try to be as specific with his or her illness as possible, i.e. “home sick with fever of ___ and cough” or “home with an ear infection,” “strep infection,” “pneumonia,” or “home for a fever-free day.” This information will help the school nurse identify clusters of illness and prompt preventative measures.

As always, if you have any specific questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse directly.



This is a reminder that the next free MIT campus Science on Saturday event will be “Materials with Magical Properties” 10:00 a.m.-noon on March 5th. Volunteers from the audience can help with lots of fun demonstrations on stage, and everyone can participate at hands-on activity tables afterward. Come help make artificial snow, create flubber, freeze flowers, assemble molecules, and make exploding geysers of goo!


There is also half-price, same-day admission to the MIT Museum for Science on Saturday attendees.


All of our Science on Saturday events on the MIT campus are free and open to all elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as their parents and teachers. They are sponsored by the MIT Museum and the Akamai Foundation. Parking and seating are limited, so we recommend that you arrive early.
