This Week at Placentino: May 27 – 31

Hello!Our “Word of the Week” this week has been “effort.”  During the last few weeks we have reviewed the four letters of the word CARE.  Our students (your children!) have completely embraced our CARE program in ways that I never imagined could be possible two years ago when we launched CARE at Placentino. 

Acts of kindness and respectful behavior, taking care of each other and developing friendships, cooperating and working together are all part of each day at school.

Ask your child about the CARE River of Fish!  If you’ve been to Placentino recently you’ve probably noticed a “river of fish” that starts at the Office and makes its way around the school … down the main hallway, past the classrooms and is very close to reconnecting at the Office again!  The children have been “trading-in” CARE cards for the fish with the goal that they’ll be working together “cooperating” to complete the River.  We have scheduled an All-School CARE Party for June 10th to celebrate together!  Placentino students are the best!

Are you still looking for some summertime fun for your child?  Holliston Community Education is offering a week long summer math and science program for students entering grades 1-6.  The Club will meet at Miller School the week of July 8 from 8:30-3:00 each day.  Registration is now underway!  Please check BackPack Express for additional information regarding the program or register at

The heat…we do our best to keep the children cool while they are at school.  On hot days, please send your child to school dressed in light clothing.  I suggest a hat for the playground as well.  You might also want to send a water bottle marked with your child’s name. Hopefully this last stretch of the year won’t be too hot and we’ll all stay as comfortable as we can while we’re at school.

Our Montessori Multi-Cultural Evening is tonight.  It’s a wonderful family celebration of dance and music!

Looking forward to the excitement of these last few weeks of our school year!                   Mrs. Weene
