“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”
-David Brinkley

It was a short week, but much was accomplished by students! If you know a seventh grader, ask them about the “Glow Hands” break-out at Sizer today, which served as an introduction to what they will be studying next. The rest of us will have to wait for a report in next week’s Flash.

We can’t wait to see everyone at next Friday Night’s Spaghetti Supper, which is also the winter sports meeting from 6-7. If you go to the sports meeting, you’ll be back in time for the Advisory Basket Raffles! Families, check the Flash to see what theme your student’s advisory is working with, and what they can do to contribute.

Late Breaking News (that didn’t make it into the Flash): There is an Outing Club hike on Monday, November 24th. ALL students are welcome to sign up to come, no experience required. Permission slips are due this Monday, so we are attaching a slip to this email along with the Flash. Please check with your student to see if they’d like to come.

Lots more news in the Flash-be sure to go over it with your student to make sure they don’t miss out on any opportunities.

Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you back at school on Monday.

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
-Henry Ford

Please remember that Sizer School students have no school on next Monday the 10th or Tuesday the 11th.

Student-athletes and families, please remember the Fall Sports Banquet next Thursday night. We can’t wait to celebrate an excellent season!

Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you back here on WEDNESDAY.

We too must endure and persevere in the inquiry, and then courage will not laugh at our faintheartedness in searching for courage; which after all may, very likely, be endurance.
-Socrates

It’s the last day of October, and we had fun today at school with costumes. We’d like to commend the staff and students who were able to dress up but stayed within our community standards and kept their focus on their work. Please be safe while trick-or-treating or celebrating this weekend.

Thanks to everyone who had a part in our successful open house last weekend. Check the pictures in the Flash.

Congratulations to Ms. Vazquez and the dance club, and Mrs. Cordio and the chorus for entertaining their audience so well at last night’s Scream Fest. Everyone had fun doing activities in the lobby until it was time for the performance. Thanks to the students and adults who helped make this a very enjoyable evening.

November is just about here, which means the snow may be coming soon…at least there are some who HOPE so. See the Flash for details on signing up for the Ski and Snowboard Club, or for purchasing your Wachusett Mountain Century Pass through the school. Other clubs are starting up and planning activities, so watch the Flash every week for announcements.

Planning ahead-There is no school for students on Monday, November 10 or Tuesday, November 11.

Lots more in the Flash-please go over it with your student so they don’t miss out on any opportunities! Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you in November.

Spirit Week, Crazy Hair Day

Exploration is what you do when you don’t know what you’re doing. That’s what scientists do every day.
-Neil deGrasse Tyson

We can’t tell you how excited we are to be inviting our families and community in to see our beautiful home tomorrow! We hope you are all planning to come, and bringing YOUR friends and families to show them where-and what- your children are learning. There will be refreshments, tours, information, and a number of dignitaries and special guests coming to visit, and to help us cut the ribbon. Check the front of the Flash for your invitation, and be sure to take note of where you can park.

The Scholastic Book Fair has arrived! It will open in the library after the ribbon-cutting tomorrow, and will be open all next week in the lobby. Welcome home to reading!

Screamfest is next Thursday night, it’s going to be a lot of fun, and there will be some great performances for you to enjoy-all for free! See the Flash for details.

Please go over the Flash with your student-it’s our best way to communicate all the opportunities available for your Sizer student.

Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you Monday!
