*Our next Mix It Up Lunch will be held Friday, March 22nd.  Students consistently identify the cafeteria as a place in their school where divisions are clearly – and sometimes harshly – drawn.  So, every other month we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch.  Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice.  When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misconceptions can fall away.  During Mix It Up Lunch we will ask parent volunteers to help hand out popsicle sticks to mix students up with their seating and help students interact while they eat their lunch.  If you would like to volunteer for this event please sign up at: Mix It Up Lunch Volunteer Sign Up.  If you have any questions please contact Maggie Foley:

*If you are considering the Spanish Immersion program for your child, the online registration is open and will close at 4:00pm on 4/12.  The Spanish Immersion Lottery will be held 6/3.  See Spanish Immersion page for more information.

*Please note that school will now be in session on Friday, March 29th to make up for last week’s snow day.
