Message from Interim Superintendent Kwong 1/27/2019

Good afternoon Methuen families:


It is hard to believe we are half way through the 2018-2019 school year! All of our students, staff, and families have certainly been busy with academics, clubs and activities, family events, and athletics with no signs of slowing down in the coming months. 


Over the next couple of months, staff and students will be focusing on preparing  for the computer based MCAS 2.0 assessments in March and May for all 3-8 and 10th graders and in June for our 9th graders taking the Biology assessment.  The grammar school principals will have specific grade level testing schedules out to families by the end of February. The high school testing days are prescribed from the state and are already posted on the MHS calendar on the main MHS web page. 


For our winter newsletter, we focused on our fine arts programming K-12. We continue to support the great opportunities that our Methuen students have in the fine arts department. The Fine Arts Newsletter has detailed descriptions of each of our K-4, 5-8, and 9-12 programs. Grade four families pay close attention to the choice and offerings for band and chorus as students move into the upper school. There will be more information about that programming in late spring.


I do hope you find these newsletters informative. They have all been posted on our web page under Superintendent's Message. Have a great week!

Buenas tardes familias de Methuen:


¡Es difícil creer que estamos en la mitad del año escolar 2018-2019! Todos nuestros estudiantes, personal y familias ciertamente han estado ocupados con actividades académicas, clubes y actividades, eventos familiares y deportes sin signos de desaceleración en los próximos meses.


Durante el próximo par de meses, el personal y los estudiantes se centrarán en la preparación para las evaluaciones MCAS 2.0 basadas en computadora en marzo y mayo para todos los estudiantes de los grados 3-8 y 10 y en junio para nuestros estudiantes de 9º grado que toman la evaluación de biología. Los directores de las escuelas de gramática tendrán programados exámenes de nivel de grado para familias a finales de febrero. Los días de exámenes de preparatoria están prescritos por el estado y ya están publicados en el calendario de MHS en la página web principal de MHS.


Para nuestro boletín informativo de invierno, nos centramos en nuestra programación de bellas artes K-12. Continuamos apoyando las grandes oportunidades que nuestros estudiantes de Methuen tienen en el departamento de bellas artes. El boletín de Bellas Artes tiene descripciones detalladas de cada uno de nuestros programas K-4, 5-8 y 9-12. Las familias de cuarto grado prestan mucha atención a la elección y las ofertas para la banda y el coro a medida que los estudiantes pasan a la escuela superior. Habrá más información sobre esa programación a fines de la primavera.


Espero que encuentren estos boletines informativos. Todos han sido publicados en nuestra página web bajo el Mensaje del Superintendente. ¡Que tengas una buena semana!

Metheun Public Schools

Good evening Methuen Public School Families,

I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a peaceful holiday vacation! It has been a very busy Fall and it's hard to believe that we are entering 2019! 

I would also like you all to be aware that due to various staff vacation schedules, all five school offices will be closed from December 24th -January 1st and will reopen on January 2, 2019 when school resumes.  Our central administration building and offices will be open December 26th -December 31st but please call (978) 722-6001 to make sure staff is available if you need assistance. 

The last announcement is about Kindergarten Registration for the 2019-2020 school year. We are hosting an Kindergarten Information Night on January 10 at 6pm in the Timony Auditorium to go over general Kindergarten information and we will discuss the online registration process as well.  Please spread the word to any neighbors who may have kindergarten aged students! 

Thank you and again Happy Holidays! 

Brandi Kwong
