Week of 11/2/15-11/6/15

Good afternoon-  

What a beautiful day it is today!  Our French visitors will be leaving us tomorrow believing that Fall in New England is usually in the 70's.  They have commented frequently on how warm it is here.  We are sad to see them go and wish them safe travels.  


It is hard to believe but first term comes to a close on Tuesday, November 10.  Grades will be available in iParent/iStudent around 2pm on November 17.  If you haven't signed up for an account yet please do so in the next week.  Students have accounts already.  Students can see Ms. Chaney in the front office if they need their account reset.  Parents can sign up using the link on the AHS website.

There is No School on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 in honor of Veteran's Day.

Don't forget to check out what's happening around town under the Parent Flyer's section link!

Eduporium, your startup neighbor in Watertown, is a vision-driven technology reseller. We view technology skills as necessary literacy in the 21st century. However, the virtual reality created by modern technology can be addictive and oftentimes tends to replace the real world. In order to bring students back to reality, learning to improve it inventively, Eduporium specifically selects technologies that enhance the 21st century skills commonly referred to as "The 4 C's": Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication. We search all over the world for the best and newest innovative technology. Our mission is to promote and deliver exciting new technology to students and to the entire K-12 school community.
