Dear Lanesborough Families,

There are lots of exciting events happening to wrap up this year. Please look at the column on the right to mark your calendars. As the nice temperatures continue to arrive, please be mindful of appropriate footwear for recess and physical education.

There were many great events during the week of 5/21 at Lanesborough Elementary School. On Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon students took the Choose to be Nice Promise. This promise was stated as a pledge that you might have seen on the school’s instagram account, @lanesborough_elementary. You may have seen the signed pledge banner on Thursday night if you attended the fantastic Spring Concert or maybe a florescent green or pink elastic bracelet on your student’s wrist.

The Spring Concert displayed the high quality of our music education. Students 3-6 performed with recorders, in the chorus, in the orchestra, or in the band. The afternoon and evening performances were great.

MCAS testing is officially over for the school year. Students worked hard and all the faculty and staff are proud of the students’ effort.  

Not that you are counting down, but there are a few days of school left and we at Lanesborough Elementary School hope to make them great!

Nolan Pratt

As a school community, we have been celebrating the ways that people are both alike and different.  When people think of diversity, they typically think of racial diversity.  As a school we have been taking time to reflect on, acknowledge and celebrate diversity in its many forms.  

We hope to affirm students as empowered learners and to teach the children to appreciatedifferences among people.
