100 Days & Kind Hearts!
We kicked off this week with a wonderful celebration of our 100th Day of School.  Teachers dressed up as 100-year-old women and we gathered together for an All-School Meeting to begin the day. Ms. Laura W. provided the annual reading of 100th Day Worries – an engaging children’s book about worries, creativity and celebration. Throughout the day, our students and staff worked together on challenges and crafts related to 100. Fun was had by all!

Mother Nature threw us a little curve ball mid-week and we hope our MFCS Families enjoyed the snow day! After the storm cleared, our staff met up for lunch and a powerful Professional Development Workshop led by Elise Wulff from Aspire/Mass General Hospital for Children. Wulff shared her extensive  knowledge about brain-based mechanisms that influence social skill building. Through Wulff’s small group work, our staff explored effective teaching practices and in-depth strategies for creating strong classroom communities built on effective communication and collaboration.
