Homework is one of the topics most often brought up by parents during conferences. So I thought it would be helpful to really explore what we mean when we say the kids have homework here in the Colchester School District. Come join us for an open conversation about homework and what you can do to make it less stressful for you and your kids!
We will answer questions like these: Why is it important? How much time should my child spend on homework a night? How can I help?
Families will leave with some ideas of how to help their children be successful at homework as well as some tools (whiteboards and timers) that can help create a homework space at home!
Come Wednesday March 15th from 2:15-3:00 at Union Memorial School (UMS)
Thursday March 16th from 5:30-6:30 at Malletts Bay School (MBS) pizza and childcare available
Please RSVP by calling, texting or emailing! Can't wait to see everyone there!

|EL Jump Start campers hard at work!|
Welcome back to school! Summer camp was a blast (as you can see), but now it's time to get to work.
We are excited that this year we have four different teachers in our elementary EL program. Mrs. H and Mrs. Sheppard (you guys should remember from last year) are working at Union Memorial School with students in Kindergarten through second grade.
Over at Porters Point School and Malletts Bay School are Ms. Sona and Mr. McDonald. They are excited to start working with all of our families!
