Congratulations to this week's Positive Referrals! These students were recognized for going above and beyond, making good decisions, and being super productive. Well done! Keep up the great work!
This week in our 6th grade students donned their fancy attire for an afternoon at the Hanover Theater to see the production of Dickens’ A Christmas Carole. The students had the opportunity to compare the performance to the original work of Dickens that they just finished analyzing in their classrooms.
Congratulations to the 2014 - 2015 Roderick School Geography Bee finalists. Our school-wide assembly to determine the Roderick school champion will take place when we return from winter recess. Good luck!

Thank you to all of the students and their families for creating cards to spread some holiday cheer. On Tuesday, members from the Student Council met with Roderick parent and Children's Hospital nurse, Mrs. Eileen DeWitt to deliver cards that will go to children at Children's Hospital. On Friday, members of the Student Council visited the Maples Nursing Home to deliver cards to the residents.
Today in our Grade 4 classrooms students and staff celebrated the holiday season with 'Grinch Day'.
Come join us on Wednesday, January 14th at 5:30 p.m. for our school's Fine Arts Night. Following our Fine Arts Night, our Advanced Band will showcase their talents beginning at 7:00 p.m. Both of these wonderful events will take place in the Gibbons Gym.
I am pleased to announce the winners from each grade from Mrs. Fox's Minute to Win It Challenge. These are the top three finishers in each grade level.

The PTO has scheduled to begin Reading Across Wrentham (RAW) on January 12 and have it run for 5 weeks ending on February 13th. The Roderick School is in need of a chairperson. The students truly look forward to this event, but the PTO does need parent participation to make it work. Any parents that are interested can email the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thank you!
As a reminder, winter break will begin on Wednesday, December 24th. Students will return to school on Monday, January 5th.
I want to wish all Roderick families every happiness this Holiday Season and prosperity in the New Year!
Stephen S. Grenham, Principal
