Dear Sunderland Families and Friends,
Our district has changed the dates to our spring conferences from March 20 and 21 to April 10 and 11, 2014. This was due to the fact that report cards would not be distributed prior to the conference, which could be used as a point of reference during the discussion between the parents and teacher. The distribution of spring term report cards will be on Friday, April 4th.
The spring conferences are scheduled for those students the teacher (or parents) feel may need to have a follow-up discussion about progress. At this time of the year, every family is not required to have a conference for their child.
Please continue to stay active in your child’s academic life. Each day I have the opportunity to visit classrooms and observe both teaching and learning. The teachers and students at SES display an admirable work ethic and share a deep compassion for learning. Engaging your child in meaningful academic discussion at home will do nothing but help in their development.
Thank you for our support.

School Choice Information for 2014/2015
Attached please find the 2013 Sunderland Elementary School Report Card distributed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The report card contains information about teacher quality, assessment, and accountability for the school, and is an important tool for sharing school and district information with families and the general public. Since 2007, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) has prepared school and district report cards that contain all federally required elements.
SES PTO earns $0.10 for each clipped Box Top. These can really add up when the whole school participates! In fact, during the 2012-2013 school years, we earned about $950! Let's try to blow that number out of the water in 2013-2014! Get everyone you know on board to support our school, from family members, friends, and neighbors! You can even download coupons; earn points by registering, and shop online at their website. Check it out and help our school at http://www.boxtops4education.com
