Thank you to our families for supporting this event. Monday was Literacy Night at the Teaticket School. It was well attended by all four elementary schools. Thank you Principal Kapsambelis for hosting this year’s literacy event. Be on the lookout for our next event Math Night! 

Our fourth grade team traveled to the Young Children Concert at Barnstable High School. Thank you to our music department for hosting this event and Mrs. Jazo for organizing the logistics for the team.
