December 2, 2022 

Good evening,

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends. Before we left for the holiday last Wednesday, we hosted two assemblies in our gym. Our chorus, band, and orchestra all played. We had turkey drawing contests and a relay race, and we had some great student council members as our MC’s. All in all, it was a great way to spend part of that early release day. One 7th grader asked me, “Mr. Marcotte - do we ever do this again? It’s so fun!” The answer is yes, traditionally before February vacation we have Blue and Gold Day, complete with a similar assembly. I hope your students had a good experience at this event. 

Our annual musical opened last night. Oliver, Jr has shows tonight and tomorrow night at 7 pm and on Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets will be sold at the door if you don’t already have yours. If you’d like to see a Behind the Scenes video about the production, please check out this video, produced by Acton TV. The student performers, the crew, the musicians, and our staff advisors all deserve a huge thank you for their months-long commitment to this show. Please check it out if you can!

If you do come to see the musical this weekend, or anytime through December 16th, please consider bringing a gently used coat for a donation. Our Student Council is beginning our annual Coat Drive at RJ Grey. There is a bin in the center of our lobby - feel free to bring gently used coats and we’ll take care of the rest!

Finally, if you or someone you know is interested in learning more about being a special education assistant at RJ Grey, we have a few openings. Please be in touch with me to learn more!
