Dear Sunderland Families and Friends,

As my car rolls along Swampfield Drive towards Sunderland Elementary School each morning, there seems to be a sense of anticipation in the air for all that is to come over the next few months.  Spring is such a wonderful time of the year as it is, but as I look at the SES calendar, I am reminded how fortunate we are to experience all that Sunderland Elementary School has to offer.
Next week we kick off our spring festivities, where folks will have the opportunity to “Pig Out In Style” at Bub’s Barbeque on April 15th and then experience our annual Arts Night on April 17th.  Arts Night is a time to celebrate the art and music programs we have at Sunderland, which both strongly influence the positive development of our children.  The power of our PTO will also be on display, as the ENORMOUS baskets are raffled off.   Following April vacation, Family Fun Night will take place on Wednesday, April 30th. 
All of these events take so much time, resources, and volunteers to plan and implement.  Thank you to all who make events such as these happen and to those who participate as well.

School Report Card

Dear Sunderland Families,

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.
