Project 351 engages eighth grade Ambassadors from each of the 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts in a 12-month program of service learning, leadership development, and civic engagement. Ambassadors are diverse in all ways but one -- they share Dr. King’s criteria for a life dedicated to service: “a heart full with grace and a soul generated by love." Hometown educators select each class of eighth grade Ambassadors. Educators select Ambassadors who have demonstrated an exemplary ethic of service and the values of kindness, compassion, humility, and gratitude. We place a special premium on unsung heroes and quiet leaders, and the rich diversity of our Commonwealth. This year Knox Trail Middle School is proud to announce our two Ambassadors Adison Daoust and Alivia Sauvageau! The pictures below are of Representative Donnie Berthiaume and Representative Peter Durant presenting our two Ambassadors with certificates commemorating the occasion. Please join us in recognizing Adison Daoust and Alivia Sauvageau!, our Project 351 Ambassadors for 2021! #KnoxTrailRocks @ChooseSEBRSD @TeamProject351 @MASchoolsK12 @MASCSchoolComm

Faculty Spotlight! Pamela Gunsalus has been teaching STEM for 6 years, 2 of which have been at Knox Trail Middle School. She has created innovative units like: Tiny House Challenge, Solar Sails Designs, Rocket Designs, Hot Air Balloons, Unbreakable Bridges, Vehicle Designs for travel over Ice and Snow, and Building a Water Tower that can withstand an earthquake to name a few.  During her Manufacturing unit she had students design an assembly line to create Teacher Appreciation Gifts. Each unit provides a real life challenge that they must find a way to solve.  Most years students worked in teams to solve a problem.  This year has been unique but students are still challenged. They test their designs; recording their results for example: recording time traveled, distanct, speed, altitude, and/or total live load it could handle and calculate efficiencies.    She has started creating videos that provide students in class as well as remote students the ability to learn at their own pace and keep her students engaged.  During each unit students can choose to compete to see who's names will be added to her "Wall of Fame". This is where Mrs. Gunsalus displays the students' names and their accomplishments. For example, who's bridge was the strongest, or has the best design. In addition, she has also been the lead Robotics and coding teacher for any 5th to 8th grader who wishes to join the Robotics/Coding club. Mrs. Gunsalus has been preparing the student's at Knox Trail to compete at the state level with Vex IQ robots. Unfortunately, we have not been able to compete this year or last because of Covid19. Next year, we will purchase a competition table and kit in July 2021; and start the preparation by mid-September of 2021 for the fall and winter competitions.  #KnoxTrailRocks @MASchoolsK12 @MASCSchoolComm

Two Spencer- East Brookfield Regional School District teachers have been awarded scholarships by the Massachusetts Computer Using Educators (MassCUE) and Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (M.A.S.S.) organizations. The scholarships provide Ms. MaryEllen Amodeo, a 3rd grade teacher at Wire Village School, and Ms. Pam Gunsalus, the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) teacher at Knox Trail Middle School, the opportunity to attend three days of high quality professional development. The three day MassCUE conference they will attend this month offers more than 250 workshops, presentations and keynote presentations focused on bringing the best educational technology and teaching practices into the classroom. "Lessons learned from this professional development will be shared with all staff across the district to keep all our classrooms on the forefront of effective educational practices," said Director of Academic Affairs Matthew Bolduc. Ms. Gunsalus and Ms. Amodeo were selected for these scholarships based on their relentless commitment to instilling teaching and learning with the most engaging and supportive practices while also maximizing the impact of educational technologies. These two teachers exemplify the many SEBRSD teachers who consistently go above and beyond expectations to give their students and the families they serve the best education found anywhere on the globe. "The learning community is fortunate to have such dedicated and highly skilled professionals on our faculty at the Knox Trail Middle School and Wire Village School. We wish them all the best in their pursuit of honing their professional knowledge base and skills in digital citizenry and technology integration," said Superintendent of Schools Paul Haughey.

Good Morning SEBRSD Community, We are receiving word that some families did not receive the automated call and text message that were sent out shortly after 5 a.m. this morning regarding the icy road conditions causing us to pivot to remote learning for the day. As you are all likely aware, we were extremely pleased to announce the launch of our mobile app this school year. This app offers great resources to families, including notification alerts, and significantly streamlines our communications operations. For clarification, our notification phone calls and text messages are also sent from the same platform and the contact information used to contact our families is derived directly from each student’s Power School record, where your contact information is stored. If you did not receive a text and/or phone-call, please call or email your school secretaries with your preferred mobile and/or home phone number so they can verify/update your contact information on file. This should ensure that you receive notifications going forward. If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to download the SEBRSD app and opt-in to receive notifications at the District level to receive real-time alerts on your mobile device, as well. Text messages delivered will come from “98901”. Phone calls will have our main 508-885-8500 callback number. If you have any questions, please reach out to your school secretaries or the Help Desk/Technology Department. East Brookfield Elementary: 508-885-8536 or salihp@sebrsd.org Wire Village: 508-885-8524 or spencek@sebrsd.org Knox Trail: 508-885-8550 or leachk@sebrsd.org and proulxn@sebrsd.org David Prouty: 508-885-8505 or whitel@sebrsd.org and shaughnessyb@sebrsd.org

Good Afternoon, District administration was notified by our nursing team that a district-wide staff member, a Village School staff member, and another staff member at David Prouty High School have tested positive for COVID-19. The staff members who have tested positive for COVID-19 have not been in any of our school buildings. However, they will not return to their buildings for at least 14 days, unless they provide evidence of negative test results. Primary symptoms of COVID-19 include shortness of breath, coughing, and fever or chills. Other symptoms include congestion, sore throat, diarrhea, abdominal pain, body aches, and loss of taste or smell. If anyone in your home begins to demonstrate any of these symptoms, please keep your child home and consult your primary care physician. The health, safety, and well-being of our school community remains our top priority. We are following sound protocols aligned with expert health guidance to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect your health. We also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of wearing masks, staying six feet apart from others, and regularly washing your hands. If you have questions or need to report a positive case of Covid-19, please contact Mrs. Carrie Cashman, Lead Nurse at (508) 885-8536 or via electronic mail at: cashmanc@sebrsd.org. Sincerely Yours, Paul S. Haughey, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools

Good Afternoon SEBRSD Community, We would like to let our Preschool families know that we have decided to issue a two-week credit for preschool tuition charged during the December 2020/January 2021 pivot to remote instruction. Families will see the credit applied towards their March invoices since January and February invoices have already been sent out. A little background that most families may not be aware of is the fact that our "Cubs Corner" Preschool program is a voluntary and self-sustaining, tuition-based program. As such, the cost of the teacher salaries is funded directly from tuition received. We do realize that remote instruction during such formative years does differ from in-person instruction; however, lesson plans and delivery of instruction are still provided during remote learning. Our teachers are still hard at work generating and providing instruction, materials and resources for students each day. We understand that these are challenging times for everyone and provide this one-time, good faith gesture, as a means to alleviate some of the pressure our parents, guardians and families in preschool are experiencing during the pandemic. Please note that we will not be able to re-extend this courtesy should we need to pivot to remote learning again. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your continued support of our program, our schools and our district. Thank You, Melissa Pervier

If you have not received yours, please check your spam folder. This year's statements look different and contain a list of all charges, credits/refunds and payments received in order to account for the refunds issued due to COVID. You will need to manually calculate your payments made and deduct the refund amount issued to determine how much you can claim for your child care expenses. Please disregard the amount listed in the TOTAL field. Hoping you are  healthy & well! Melissa Pervier

They have responded to the challenges of keeping our building sanitized by working harder and smarter than ever. They always keep our building clean and shiny, and do so with good humor and Prouty Pride! It is wonderful to have custodians who understand the importance of keeping the building safe for students and adults alike, especially now that we are dealing with the pandemic. Josh is a proud David Prouty HS graduate, who is happy to be making a difference in his own alma mater. Tim worked as a custodian in the Leicester Public Schools for many years, but has made a great transition to David Prouty HS & our regional school district! We greatly appreciate all that they do. #Congratulations #ThankYou #ProutyPride

Our "Staffulty" of the month for December 2020 are Lynn White & Beth Shaughnessy, our David Prouty HS School Secretaries! Their friendly faces & voices greet every visitor to our school. Their calm demeanor puts people at ease. Their professional approach to helping every member of our community with every problem conceivable is appreciated by all of us here at the high school. Through the uncertainty of this past spring, Mrs. White & Mrs. Shaughnessy helped make school feel "real," highlighted by putting together a truly beautiful graduation for the Class of 2020. Mrs. White is in her sixth year at Prouty. She is the loving mom of two daughters: one a college freshman, the other a high school sophomore. She is co-advisor of this year's senior class, and she is determined to see them all have a great senior year, despite Covid. Mrs. Shaughnessy is in her third year at Prouty. She is the loving mom of a third-grade daughter, and twin boys who are in second grade. Mrs. Shaughnessy loves running and walking outdoors in nature, and is a fierce soccer player.

We would like to recognize Ms. MaryEllen Amodeo & Mr. Nick Pantecuso as Wire Village School’s "Employees of the Month for October 2020!" MaryEllen Amodeo: Mary Ellen joined the Wire Village family several years ago and has been an integral member of the third grade team ever since. Looking back, she always welcomes others to her classroom, from college students beginning their studies in elementary education to hybrid teaching… Teaching both the students in her classroom and those at home during their remote week. She continually seeks ways to refine and grow her skills and practices. Nicolas Panteusco: Nick joined our Wire Village family last year as our school adjustment counselor with an extensive background in working with elementary students. With his mild manner and funny sense of humor, he became an asset to both students and families as well as helping staff in meeting the needs of students. His work did not end in the summer, as he produced self-help videos for staff and students aimed at helping parents, families and students and staff with the transition back to school. “Just Think Week,” a production focused upon self-help and transition, while another video series featured a conversation with “Mrs. Doubtwire,” where he helped parents (and students) reflect on the differences with remote learning last spring versus what it looks like now.

We would like to recognize Kelsey Mitchell as East Brookfield Elementary School’s employee of the month for October. Kelsey has been a part time office clerk at the school for several years and has just been promoted to our full time secretary at the start of this school year. Kelsey has already made a strong impact. She has done an amazing job getting our school ready to open during these unprecedented times. Not only did she get the school ready for opening day, she entered all the class lists and schedules into Powerschool, created email lists for all parents according to grade, and revised and set up Powerpoint presentations for three separate parent nights. This is just a partial list of what she has done to this point. Above everything else, Kelsey is a welcoming presence to those parents, guardians, and visitors to our school. She is always upbeat and has a smile on her face. Kelsey is an integral part of our great school climate. Congratulations on being employee of the month for October 2020, Kelsey!!!

Tom Cheney is the East Brookfield Elementary School Staff of the Month for September 2020! Mr. Cheney has been a custodian at East Brookfield Elementary School for about 8 years. He worked extremely hard as a part time custodian, and when a full-time position became available, Tom was the obvious choice. From Day One, Tom’s work ethic was clearly evident. When he is given an assignment or project, his response is not “I’ll get to it.” His response is to get it done almost immediately. Since coming to EBE, I have never received one complaint from a staff member saying their room was not cleaned the night before or was not ready for students to enter in the morning. During the summer months, Tom makes sure everything is ready for opening day, even during times of being short staffed. This is a testament to Tom’s commitment to his job and to our school. Above all else, Tom always has a positive attitude and a great sense of humor. He has great relationships with our staff and is well liked and respected by all. Congratulations to Mr. Cheney, our Staff of the Month for September 2020! @MASchoolsK12 @massteacher @MASCSchoolComm #EBEEaglesRock #Progress #Unity #Knowledge

Kelsey Grey is the David Prouty Hogh School Teacher of the Month for September 2020! Ms. Grey, our music teacher, band director, and resident Schoology expert, is a graduate of Westfield State University. Before coming to Prouty in the summer of 2019, she taught in Otis, Massachusetts. Ms. Grey plays the flute and the piccolo, and she LOVES Starbucks Coffee! Ms. Grey was selected due to her unwavering commitment to her students and her colleagues. We appreciate her work transitioning our music program to remote learning in the spring, her efforts on our Class Day video, her transition to a socially distanced Band Camp, and her ongoing devotion to our Marching Band. The Prouty faculty appreciates her help with Schoology. Currently, Ms. Grey is planning the Halloween Highway event with the Music Boosters and the band students. We truly hope that every family in the community will come out on October 30 to take part -- courtesy of our Teacher of the Month!!!

A note from our Food Services Director! Hello All! As the summer comes to an end and the start of the school year fast approaches we will continue to provide meals for students in the district. As you may have heard, the USDA is extending free meals to all students until December 31st. The State of Massachusetts will be providing more clarity on Thursday, 9/10, to determine if our district qualifies. A Google form will be released this week for meal ordering for the opening of school. We appreciate your patience and look forward to your participation in the SEBRSD Meals program! If you have any questions please feel free to email me at pulverb@sebrsd.org or give me a call at 774-200-7162. Thank You, Brianne Pulver SEBRSD Food Services Director
