© January was a winter blast! We may have had our first snow storm of the season and some frigid temperatures but our students didn’t let that get in the way of hard work and determination!
© All students took the winter STAR, Dibels and Lexia (K only) assessments this past month. These assessments are used to see how well our students are doing and if they are making the necessary growth needed to be successful. I am pleased to say that POCASSET students are making great strides! Way to go!!!
© Pocasset helped the Town of Tiverton celebrate Purple week. Students in all grades participated in a variety of activities about the importance of being themselves and that they can be whoever they want to be with hard work, positive attitude, empowerment and discovery.
© Ray from the Bwana Iguana Reptile Show presented a variety of reptiles to Pocasset friends. The students were very excited to see the very large Python! Thank you to Mr. Feinstein for providing this experience to our students.
© The URI Rams Men’s basketball team visited Pocasset this past month to share the importance of teamwork and working hard in school. Many Pocasset families took advantage of the tickets provided to all families and saw a spectacular game!
© **Just a reminder that morning arrival is a DROP OFF process- please allow your students to exit the vehicle on the SIDEWALK side only. We ask that ALL vehicles in between the main door and the gym door release their students onto the sidewalk so traffic can keep moving – Please DO NOT get out of your vehicle –we need to keep this traffic moving.
© With the winter weather upon us PLEASE make sure the main office has up-to-date home and cell phone numbers and email addresses as cancellations and important school information will be sent via our automated notification system. This system allows us to share the most recent information/cancellations with all families quickly and ensure all students are safe.
