Bobcat Bulletin 6/7/24

LAST DAY OF SCHOOL: The last day of school is WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12th. It is a HALF DAY. DISMISSAL IS AT 11:05AM. 


REPORT CARDS: Third Trimester (Final) Report Cards will be available on Wednesday, June 12th. All students in Grades K-4 will come home with a physical copy of their report card. For students in grades 5-8 report cards will be available on the Student/Parent Portal on the same day. 


8TH GRADE PROMOTION: Our 8th grade promotion ceremony will be held at 6pm on Tuesday, June 11th outside on the Upper school side. Students should arrive and report to their homerooms at 5:30pm to prepare. 

This year the ceremony will be held on the basketball courts. We will have all 8th grade classes set up with chairs in a roped off area. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in the gymnasium. 

We are asking families to bring their own lawn chairs and/or blankets. Families will be able to set up anywhere behind or beside the area where our 8th graders will be seated. 

Families will not be allowed to set up prior to 5:00pm. We appreciate your attention and support with this. 

Parking for this event will be very limited, so we are asking families to carpool and walk if able. 

For those that are driving, we ask that you park in the lower school lot and the gravel parking lot adjacent to that. 

The promotion ceremony should last for approximately 30-45 minutes maximum. 

Immediately following the promotion ceremony, our 8th grade students will be invited into our cafeteria & gym for their promotion dance, where food, music, and activities will be awaiting them. 

The dance will end at 8:30pm. At this time, it will be expected that all 8th grade students have rides waiting for them. 

Please remember that all school rules still apply for the promotion and promotion dance. Please review the following guidelines below:


  • Students cannot bring bags of any kind. Small purses will be allowed, but are subject to search.
  • No outside food or drink will be allowed
  • Students must have a ticket to attend the event
  • Non Hunking students are not allowed to attend the event
  • If a student leaves the event they are not allowed to return


Thank you for your attention to this and we look forward to sharing in an exciting/special event.

SUMMER VACATION: Summer Vacation 2024 – Copy

Summer Vacation 2024 – Spanish Copy



Thank you for an incredible year! Every year, the PTO helps support the school, teachers and students by sponsoring events (Block Party, Thanksgiving Feast, Multicultural Night and Field Day), dances and other school activities, and Teacher Appreciation Week. We also allocate funds for each grade (K-8) to put towards field trips, experiences and/or extracurriculars. In the 2023-2024 school year, we achieved so much, and we couldn’t have done it without your generous donations—both money and time. Thank you for being involved and engaged and for making this a great—and hopefully unforgettable—year for our students!

We are hoping to grow our small group next year so we can accomplish even more! Meetings are once a month starting in September! Enjoy your summers, but get ready because we plan to hit the ground running early next year; our Bobcats deserve it!

Thank you again for your continued support! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out at



Grades 5 and 6: Sarah Petrick     

Grades 7 and 8: Terri Carney 

Loop Program for rising 8th graders:

The application is due on July 1st. Next year the high school will offer Band, Chorus, Italian, Latin, and JROTC and courses will run during our 1st block from Monday – Wednesday. 

High School Loop Program Application


Rising 8th graders: Start researching high schools that you are considering for 9th grade. Be sure to note application deadlines! 


Planning ahead for rising 7th graders:

Haverhill High School Career Technical Program (CTE)  as well as many other private schools and vocational schools consider 7th and 8th grade years when making admissions decisions. If you have a student who will be in 7th grade in the fall of 2024, attendance, grades and behavior are three areas that HHS CTE and the other schools consider. Admission to these programs has become more competitive so all three of the areas are important. Additionally, deadlines are critical! 






7th Grade: The 7th grade team wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support all year long. We hope everyone has a great summer. 


7th Grade Language-Based: The seventh-grade Language-Based group took some time earlier this week to celebrate all of them going up in their latest iReady Diagnostic! Congratulations to all the seventh-grade LB students! 


8th Grade:  Tuesday at 9am we will celebrate the award winners.  Letters were sent home with award winners last week welcoming their guardians.  If you cannot attend, all winners will be announced at the Graduation Ceremony Tuesday at 6pm.  


Field Day: This was a huge success. Thank you so much to the many volunteers who helped in so many ways to make it among the many highlights of the year for our kids! It does not happen without the help of “The Village!” If you were a volunteer at field day, please consider completing this short feedback form as we are already looking for ways to make it even better for next year.


NEWS FROM OUR NURSES:  Please remember to pick up any medications prior to the end of the school year. Any medications not picked up will be discarded at the end of the school day on June 12th. 

If you are making appointments over the summer, please note we will need physicals and updated immunizations.  In preparation for the 7th grade year, there are required vaccines (TDAP and Meningococcal) that are state mandated. Please send in a current physical with proof of vaccinations when received. Letters have been sent to students that have been found to be missing these required vaccines. Proof of yearly physicals should be sent in to the health office yearly so your students health record is up to date. They may be faxed to 978-274-1944.

Tree and grass pollen continues to be high in the area. The health office does not supply allergy medication so please medicate your child accordingly if they have allergies. Also with the warmer weather, please remember to send your child in with a water bottle so they stay hydrated. 


Have a happy and healthy summer. See you in August!!




HUGE congratulations to BOTH our boys and girls track teams for bringing home the district championships! We couldn’t be prouder of the hard work and dedication our athletes had this year!! We hope you have a healthy and safe summer and look forward to

YEARBOOK: Congratulations to the Yearbook Committee for publishing! Yearbooks are scheduled to be delivered by June 10th and will be distributed during promotion and the last two days of the school year.




-All students have been issued school IDs. It is required that they bring and wear their ID badges each day. These badges are also used for breakfast and lunches as well as to “swipe” on & off the bus. 


-Please make sure that your student(s) are coming to school daily with a fully charged chromebook. 


HPS has chosen School Device Coverage (SDC) to insure the Chromebooks that students have been issued. The cost of coverage for the year is $20 and includes accidental damage, loss, fire, and theft. As of right now, families have the option to sign up during the month of September (we will let you know if it extends). After sign up closes, only new students will be given a special code to sign up at registration. Our website explains SDC and has instructions on how to signing up online:


Qustodio: a FREE student safety, digital wellbeing platform that helps parents/guardians control their child’s access to the internet on their school issued devices. Qustodio is FREE for HPS Students/Families. More information and how to sign up for Qustodio can be found on our website at:


-Please make sure that you are sending your student(s) with a water bottle. We have a limited supply of cups and we do not have access to water fountains, only water bottle filling stations.
