A Few Photos from our Grade Six Science Fair!

We held our annual science fair on Friday with our grade six students.  We thank our teachers for putting this together with the students!  We also want to express our gratitude to all of the volunteer judges who spent several hours with us on Friday judging the student projects! The students worked very hard on their projects and we are very proud of them!  These are just a few photos from this fantastic event!

The store will debut on Monday, March 25th during the Book Fair and will remain open during school hours until the 28th.
The store will also be open during Family Math Night on the 26th. So as you visit the school for our Book Fair, Family Math Night and Parent/Teacher conferences, be sure to check out our store and help support our students’ greatness!

Grade Six Important Information

Dear Parents,

Grade six students have a host of special events during to make the last year at Spofford special! Part of this experience is that students order t-shirts that are given out at the end of the year. Parents of grade six students have been coordinating all of these wonderful events and without their effort, the sixth-grade experience would not be the same! I want to personally thank all of the parents who are helping with this committee! I especially want to acknowledge the efforts of Mrs. Bisesti and Mrs. Algozzini, who have coordinated the committee and their work this year.

Every child will receive a t-shirt! Please complete the order form through the link below so that we know the size to order for your child.

The Grade Six Student Activities Committee is hosting a “Concession Stand Fundraiser” for both Talent Shows. They are hoping parents can either donate time, goods, or funds to help out. The committee is hoping to reduce the costs of the upcoming grade six special events through this fundraiser. The link to volunteer or donate is below.
