R. H. Conwell Communty News 5/14/2021

Dear Community, 

The end of the year always feels like it goes by quickly, and this week was a particularly busy week here at R.H. Conwell!  In addition to all the end of the year learning activities, the 3/4 class took the ELA MCAS test on Thursday.  This was the first year both the third and fourth graders had ever taken the MCAS test and all the students did a great job taking the test!  

During last evening’s school committee meeting, the committee voted unanimously to amend our current mask break policy.   Please follow the link for the current policy guidelines.  The amendment to our current mask policy will go into effect on Monday, May 17, 2021.  Mask Break Policy Amendment – Notice to Community


  • Students in grade 6 will take the ELA MCAS on Tuesday, May 18th.  
    • Make-ups for students who missed the first day of testing will also happen on this day.
  • Students in grade 3-6 will take the Math MCAS on Thursday, May 20th.  
  • Students in grade 5 will take the Science MCAS on Thursday, May 27th.

Weapons:  During play we have seen an increase with students turning objects into guns and pointing them towards teachers.  I ask for your support by talking to your child about engaging in behavior that is contrary to the mission and values of the school. Please refer to our school handbook pages 16 and 17 to read about the school expectations regarding weapons.  Thank you in advance for your support.
