It was a very busy week of learning mixed in with a little bit of fun at the Roderick School! Please remember that there is no school on Tuesday, November 4th due to a teacher professional development day.
The students enjoyed visiting the fall Scholastic Book Fair throughout the week. A big THANKS to Mrs. Berry, Mrs. Graham, Mrs. Munn, Mrs. King, Mrs. Leveroni, Mrs. Canavan, and the many other parent volunteers who helped to make the fall Book Fair a great success.
Also, we would like to thank Roche Brothers of Millis for donating paper bags and a $100.00 gift card. We greatly appreciate their generosity!
As a reminder, Grade 4 and 5 students are invited to a Hoedown on Monday, November 3rd at 7:00 PM in the Roderick School. It is going to be a great night!
These students received a Positive Referral this week for demonstrating great work ethic. Keep up the good work!
