Dear Luther School community,
If any parents are interested in chaperoning a field trip, you must have a current CORI check and a fingerprinting background check on file with Swansea Public Schools. Please visit www.swanseaschools.org for more information on how to complete these two background checks. Parents must submit a completed Field Trip Chaperone Agreement to the main office at Luther School by Friday, April 17. The selection process/lottery will take place in early May and will only include parents that already have a current CORI check and a fingerprinting background check on file with Swansea Public Schools. Please see below for dates and locations for each grade’s field trip:
Grade 3 – Plimouth Plantation, Plymouth, MA – June 2
Grade 4 – EcoTarium, Worcester, MA – June 3
Grade 5 – The Freedom Trail, Boston, MA – June 5
On Friday, January 31, Luther School will be welcoming visiting author, J. Michael Squatrito, Jr. to our school. We will be having three grade level assemblies during the morning on creating a story. Mr. Squatrito is the author of The Overlords book series.
Luther School will be celebrating literacy during our annual Reading Week that will take place February 3-7. Students will be participating in book clubs, making videos, decorating areas of the school, and other engaging activities. The theme of the week will be “Choices”, where we will examine the impact of choices that characters make in the stories we will be reading and discussing how the choices we make impact us. During this week there will be no written homework or tests. We will be asking students to complete independent reading at home during this week.
Wednesday, February 5 will be an Early Release Day for students at Luther School. Faculty members will be participating in professional development during the afternoon on this day. Parent dismissal will begin at 11:30 a.m., van dismissal will begin at 11:40 a.m., and bus dismissal will begin at 11:45 a.m.
