Dear Parents & Staff,
I hope you all had a the opportunity to relax and enjoy time with family and friends over the break.  It is hard to believe that it is officially 2017!  We are all excited to have the students and staff back and are looking forward to the second half of the school year.  As we continue through the winter season, the students and staff will be engaged in some great learning activities and also involved in many after school activities.  We will also be working very hard in preparation for the MCAS 2.0 tests.  I would also like to remind everyone that, in the event of inclement weather, all Boston TV and radio stations, WCCM, the Methuen Public Cable channel, and the MPS website will post school closings and delays.  As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school at 978-722-9077.  Thank you for your constant support of our students and school.
