Bobcat Bulletin 3/6/22

Bobcat Bulletin

C.D. Hunking School | March 6, 2022

Students in second grade experienced a virtual author visit from Michelle Nelson-Schmidt on Friday. Students were so engaged listening to her and had many great questions. We are grateful that one of our literacy interventionists, Nicole Powers, coordinated this!

We celebrated Read Across America Day on Wednesday. There were many students dressed up as their favorite character from a book. I enjoyed reading in Ms. Conforti’s classroom on Friday. No matter what age, students love being read to!

Haverhill Public Schools has partnered with McLean Hospital to provide two virtual parent workshops this year.  The second of these events will occur on Friday, March 11th from 12-1:30pm.  The event will also be translated in Spanish and presented virtually on Friday, March 25th from 12-1:30pm.  This workshop is called Raising a Resilient Child and will provide families with ready-to-use strategies to help their children approach difficult challenges in life. Please see the Parent Coaching Flyer March or Parent Coaching Flyer March Spanish for more information. 

Geskus Studios & Yearbook Publishing will be taking class pictures on March 17 and is working with grade 8 students and Mr. Thornton, our yearbook advisor, to create our Grade 8 Yearbook. Please see the promotion flyer Families & Geskus
