We launched “March Mail” with a school-wide assembly on Friday morning. The children joined me in the cafeteria to say “The Pledge of Allegiance” together, read the story Dear Mr. Blueberry, and to talk about all of the terrific reading and writing that our Placentino students do each and every day!
Also, just in time for “March Mail” … we’ve named all of the hallways and corridors of our school! At the assembly, the children went on a visual map tour of Placentino pointing out all of the newly named street addresses. Don’t be surprised if your child tells you that his or her classroom is located on “Peppy’s Path,” “Second Avenue,” “Kindergarten Court,” or “Preschool Plaza!” The main hallway of our school has been named “Placentino Street.” Don’t forget to check out our blue and white “street signs” when you stop by.
The last part of our assembly included a reminder to the children that the money we raise selling stamps for our “March Mail” letters is donated to our friends at the Holliston Food Pantry. We completed the assembly with a ceremony to “swear in” all of our Grade Two students so that they would be ready to assume their important roles as our official Placentino School “March Mail” helpers on Monday.
You can find more information about “March Mail” and the stationery that we are using to write our letters if you go to the Placentino School home page and click on “March Mail.” Happy Writing!
