Good afternoon,


If you’re my age or older, and you grew up around here, I bet you share the sentiment that there was no better feeling than a snow day! Waking up and finding out there was no school by listening to the radio, and in later years seeing it on TV was a thrill. It was only surpassed once or twice in my school career by a “no school” call the night before! I make no projection about how tomorrow’s weather could impact our school day. That role gets reserved for Mr. Light. But on the eve of some inclement weather, I hope you’re prepared with your shovel and other gear.


We are anticipating hosting our students for Summer Fun in Winter tomorrow afternoon.  I have my Hawaiian shirt ready to go, having last worn it just about one year ago for last year’s Hawaiian Shirt Day. Representatives from ABSAF will be attending the event, ready to sell some of their AB gear. If your child would be interested in purchasing an AB bucket hat, please see this flyer for more details about the cost and how to pay.


You may have heard that Acton-Boxborough Regional Schools have partnered this year with Cartwheel Care to provide outside-of-school mental health support to our students. The new partnership with us and Cartwheel has been really great. As part of our relationship, Cartwheel is sponsoring 5 webinars for caregivers this year. The first will take place on Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm. The topic, Youth Mental Health in a Digital World is relevant and important to all of our students. I encourage you to join the webinar next Wednesday. Please click here to see more details and the link to register.


Finally, I am previewing for all 8th grade families that you’ll be hearing from Acton-Boxborough Regional High School soon about their 9th grade Transition Night. Please mark Thursday,  February 9th in your calendar for an in-person evening event at ABRHS.  Keep your eyes open for an email message to your inbox with more details.
