July 2018

I hope you are enjoying a fun-filled summer vacation!

Class placements were posted in the Aspen portal. If you have forgotten your Aspen account credentials or your account is locked, please email parentportal@concordps.org during business hours to have it reset.  For the privacy of all Thoreau students, please note that you will only see the placement for your child and not the roster for the class.   In addition to placements, you will also find a recommended, but not required, list of school supplies for each grade level in the portal.

Before we officially begin the new school year, I would like to invite you and your child to attend our Open House on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from 2:30-3:15 p.m.  Although brief, this will be a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to meet the new teacher, classmates, and see the classroom.  In order to ensure that all of the hard work that has gone into setting up classrooms is honored, we respectfully request that parents and guardians supervise your children during the visit.  During Open House our cafeteria manager Carol Horan will be in the cafeteria accepting checks or funds to be added to new and returning students’ lunch accounts.

The staff and I are looking forward to a terrific first day of school on Wednesday, August 29, 2018. Please note that this is a full day and that school begins at promptly at 9:00 a.m. with dismissal at 3:30 p.m. Back to School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12th from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Information concerning transportation will be published in the Concord Journal and on the district’s website, concordpublicschools.net in late August.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding bus transportation, please contact Mr. Wayne Busa, Transportation Manager, at 978-318-1433.
