Stonehurst STEAM Magnet Elementary School


Dear Parents Staff, Students, and Community Members,


 Happy Holidays!  As the year draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on the many accomplishments of our students.  The state test scores are on the rise.  Students have been working on our gardens and transforming them as they take ownership of the various sections.    They have been working on engineering projects, incorporating technology into their assignments, and learning to explain and defend their thinking. 


 The next three weeks will pass by quickly and then we will have our winter break.  Three weeks is a long time for students to be away from the routine of school.  Please help your children to retain the skills they are developing, by having them read at least 20 minutes each day and then explain what they have read.  In addition, quiz your child on his/her math facts (simple addition, subtraction and multiplication) to keep his/her skills sharp. Students will have access to their Raz Kids and ST Math accounts over the break as well.  I appreciate your continued support and commitment to our students and school.  On behalf of the entire Stonehurst staff, I extend our sincere wishes for a joyous holiday season.



Thank you,


William Bertrand
