This weekend is the first Family Appreciation Weekend of the school year. No homework will be assigned during the long weekend. Fowler is working to strike a balance between challenging our students with rigorous classes and helping them to be well adjusted and involved in activities outside of school. Our focus is on the development of the whole-child.
Last night, Jennifer Gaudet, Curriculum Director, and the three building Principals led a collaborative presentation on the district and school goals. As part of the presentation, I shared some of the exciting work that will be happening this year at Fowler. As you can read, the highlights include our focus on improving school culture, our belief that all students can learn and grow, our improvement with curriculum, staff development, and assessment, and our commitment to physical activity and play.

On October 22, 6:00-8:00 pm, Fowler will be having Parent Conferences for grades 6-7.
Parents of students in grades 6-7 can call the school starting October 13 (after 9 am please) to schedule conferences with individual teachers.
If you would like to schedule a ten (10) minute per teacher conference, please call 978 897 6700 during school hours. The deadline for scheduling
conferences is October 21.
Parents of students in grades 4-5 have already scheduled conferences for October 22 and 23. Parent/Teacher conferences are a great opportunity to meet and connect, gather information about your child, and share questions or concerns. I hope that many parents can join us. Please know that you can schedule a conference with teachers at any point during the year.
This week the PTO kicked off its Fall Fundraiser. The Jeannine Collection brochure went home this week. Please take a moment to check out the wide variety of wrapping paper, housewares, gifts and gourmet goodies- truly something for everyone! This is one of only 2 fundraisers the PTO will hold this year, so please consider buying even just one item. All proceeds go directly to Fowler teachers to support technology, educational programs, field trips and more.
The sale runs through. Return them early to be entered to win a $10 gift card to either Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt or Sugar Snap. Daily drawings begin .
Fowler School Council:
We are looking for parents who would like to serve on the Fowler School Council.
School Council is an advisory group that plans, collaborates, and reflects on the school improvement plan. The group is made-up of the principal, teachers, parents, and community members. Meetings are held approximately every six weeks during the school year.
Please send an email to Mr. Mela if you are interested.
Have a good weekend.
