In This Issue: Budget Vote Coming Up, School Start Times Under Review, Recycling for $$$

Last Day of School Set

It’s official! Thursday, June 22, will be the last day of school. It’s a half day for students and a full day for staff. Already thinking about next year? Here’s the school calendar for 2017-2018: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0By2FDEurX9hGbHpEejFwelM4cVE

Update on School Start Times Review

The School Start Times Subcommittee has put together a website to share its research thus far.

The subcommittee was formed in response to the Report of the Superintendent’s Task Force on Student Stress, released in July 2016, which listed a review of school start times among its recommendations.

Stay tuned for an upcoming survey to seek feedback from all corners of our community.

The next meeting of the subcommittee is Monday, May 1, 9:15 am, at Central Office.

Go green!

The textile recycling program is ongoing, and the Green Subcommittee would like to remind students and parents that Spring Cleaning is the perfect time to collect and recycle old clothes and many other textiles. For the full list of what's accepted (stuffed animals!), click here:  http://baystatetextiles.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/AcceptableItemsforRecycling-3.pdf

Bay State Textiles is sponsoring a recycling contest, running from April 1 through June 30. If we meet our goal, we could win, $400!!!  Please keep this in mind as you clean out closets and drawers this spring.

Budget update
