June 11, 2021
Welcome to the last Friday of the school year! I wanted to share a few updates as we prepare to close out the year.
No COVID Cases
After reporting 205 cases to you, it seems worth reporting that we have not had a COVID case since May 19. The progress and relief of the waning cases are allowing the schools to flourish with end-of-year activities that feel incredibly normal. Last week’s CCHS graduation and Grade 8 celebration are among the highlights.
New METCO Director
It is with great pleasure that I announce that Heidi Harris has accepted the METCO Director position. She will be a valuable asset to the program. Her biography and background are found here.
A Letter to the Community
I recently shared a letter of appreciation to the community with the local town leaders and the local newspapers. I share the letter here in its entirety. It has been extraordinary what we accomplished together this year.
We left the parent survey open for the remainder of the school year. If you haven’t completed it, the link to the survey is located here.
Concord Free Public Library Summer Program
Concord Free Public Library is gearing up for Summer Reading 2021. Our theme this year is Tails and Tales and we’re celebrating lots of different animals. We’ll be hatching quail eggs, and praying mantises, and we’ll be watching painted lady caterpillars turn into butterflies. We’ll have visits from an elephant, as well as farm animals from various sanctuaries. We’ll give away gift cards to local shops and we’ll have weekly scavenger hunts around town.

Have a wonderful weekend!
