    Dear Luther School community,

    This week Luther School was notified that we have been classified as a School of Recognition by the Massachusetts Department of Education for High Growth for students.  This is a great honor for our community and is the result of a lot of hard work from our students, faculty, and families.

    Our first Luther Pride Day is scheduled for September 27, we are encouraging students to wear something that represents who they are.  Students may choose to wear something that shows their interests, hobbies, talents, and/or style.  Students may wear hats on this day.

    Congratulations to the following parents who were elected as the Parent Representatives to the Luther School Council: Sonya Barbosa, Kathy Bartoga, and Dina Vieira.  Mrs. Ferreira and Mr. Luciano will be serving as the Teacher Representatives.  School council meetings are open meetings and take place on the first Monday of each month that school is in session at 4:00 p.m. here at Luther School.

    Our Mad Science after school program begins Thursday, October 3.  The program runs for 6 weeks on Thursdays from 3:15 p.m. until 4:15 p.m. here at Luther School.  The cost is $74.  Please contact Mad Science at 508-679-0081 with any questions.

    Fire Prevention Week is October 6-12.  This year’s message is “Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape.”  Student assemblies will take place on October 9.  This is a great reminder to test your smoke alarms.  For more information, please visit https://www.nfpa.org/fpw.

    Our annual LSO Walk-a-Thon is scheduled for Thursday, October 31.  Sponsor sheets have already gone home with students.  Money raised by our LSO fundraisers support our field trips and family events that take place throughout the school year.  We are encouraging students to wear black and orange on this day.  Students should dress comfortably and wear sneakers for this event.

    A reminder that Thursday, Oct. 31 is an Early Release Day for Luther School.  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.
