Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Pocasset School!
I want to welcome back all our returning Pocasset families and staff as well as extend a warm welcome to all the new families and staff that will be joining our school family this year! I hope you all had a spectacular vacation and everyone is excited for the new school year.
This year will again hold many new and exciting things!! We have a terrific staff returning as well as a few new members. Mrs. Edwards (formerly Ms. Rapoza!) will now join our second grade team and new teacher to Pocasset, Ms. Brennan, will join our special education team. We continue year two of our full day Kindergarten program and welcome back Mrs. Moreira who will be a part of our K team. I am confident your child will have an amazing experience at Pocasset this year as the teachers and I are eager to make your child’s learning fun and motivating.
To ensure your child has the best educational experience here at Pocasset, I ask that you become involved as much as possible in your child’s academic career. Simple things like asking about your child’s day, ensuring your child completes all homework assignments, reading with them, communicating with your child’s teacher, making sure your child attends and arrives to school on time every day, and volunteering are great ways to do so. Volunteers are important resources in any school and here at Pocasset we can always use your help in the Library, Literacy Closet, and within the classrooms. The PTO is also a great way to get involved!
Our district has embraced the technology revolution by providing us with many tools that allow us to communicate in more quick manners. I urge everyone to make sure your child’s teacher and the main office have the most up to date email addresses and cell phone numbers to ensure you receive the many announcements, invitations, and information our school will deliver via these systems. Also, please check our school webpage frequently for newsletters, announcements, calendar of events, lunch menus, school supplies and much more! http://pocasset.tivertonschools.org/
Here’s to a fantastic school year!
