News for the Community from Superintendent/Principal Dobosz – 3/5/2021

Greetings Community,

This week we celebrated 100 days of learning at Conwell!  As of Monday we have been in-person for 88 days and remote for 12 days.  In case you missed it, here is the link to the Gazette highlighting our success story!

Worthington’s Conwell celebrates 100 days of school, most of them in class

100th Day:  We put together a short slideshow highlighting some of the festivities for the 100 day celebration!

Fifth and Sixth Graders taught their classmates about a topic of interest. Each student
had 8.5 minutes to present for a total of 100 minutes of learning.

Calling all Worthington kindergartners.   If you are a Worthington family or know a family with a rising kindergartener please call Ms. Lisa for more information about an upcoming zoom meeting happening in April for kindergarten families. 

Gratitude:  On Thursday, the faculty received a delicious spread of breakfast pastries from the Gamache family.  The faculty really enjoyed the pastries and gourmet coffee!  A warm thank you to Hayden Gamache’s family for treating us!

Tents:  The PTO has ordered the classroom tents for the spring!  They are expected to arrive the first week of April.  All classrooms will transition back to outdoor learning!  

School Committee:   Our regular meetings are the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm and are currently held remotely on Zoom.  On April 8, the annual School Budget Hearing will be held at 6:30pm, prior to the regular School Committee meeting. 

MCAS:  MCAS will be administered this year.  The test has been shortened and students will only have one test in ELA and Math.  Our fifth graders will also take the Science MCAS and that will only be an hour long.  The testing window was just modified- today and right now the window is from May 10th to June 11th.   All students in grades 3 – 6 will take the test on the same days.   We will send these testing dates out in the coming weeks.
