April 2017

Spring is finally here! What a great year we've had so far! We're eagerly looking forward to the remaining months and activities that lie ahead. Spring Break is April 10th - April 14th. We hope everyone has a restful and relaxing break. We will see students and staff back reenergized and ready to resume normal school activities on April 17.

Kindergarten registration materials have been mailed and e-mailed to those parents who have already contacted the Board of Education. Parents who have access to the internet at home are strongly encouraged to use the e-mail message to complete the necessary forms online. This will speed the process for parents and streamline operations for the school system. Please visit for more information. Families who may not have access to the internet may complete the paper forms and bring them with them when they attend their appointment at their school.  Any child residing in Wolcott who will be five years old on or before January 1, 2017 should be registered.

Due to several snow days in March, our town meetings have been pushed forward. Our next meeting will be held on Friday, April 7th.  We have had several great presentations throughout out the year by our students! A reminder: for the second half of this school year our town meetings are being held in the morning at 9:05am.

Science CMT testing is being held for our grade 5 students during the week of April 3rd-7th. Smarter Balanced Assessment testing for students in grades 3-5 will begin on April 18th and run through the month of May.  We ask our students to get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast, and try their best!  

As always, thank you to parents, families and staff for continued support and cooperation as we work together to provide a positive experience for Alcott students.

Mr. Shawn Simpson
