1. If you haven’t seen the PBIS cart race video then take a look and you will feel the fun and excitement that ARD staff and students generate at PBIS events.

2. NHSAS Interim Testing will be conducted on 10/19 for Cohort A students. (Cohort B participated in testing already on 10/16). Please note that the NHDOE has asked all schools to conduct the much shorter interim tests to help educators guide instruction and plan for any needed shifts to better meet student needs. Sixth grade students will take the interim science test (Cohort A on Tuesday and Cohort B on Wednesday). All students are being tested at their previous grade level for all tests.

3.. The last HOME soccer game is 10/19 at 4:00 pm at the AES field. There are two away games scheduled for the end of the week and the soccer season ends on Friday, 10/23. There is no tournament this year. More information will be shared about a team celebration and awards later in the week.

10/22 – 4:00 at Gilmanton and 10/23 – 4:00 at Pittsfield

4.. 10/20 – TRIMESTER 1 PROGRESS Check. Please go into your ALMA portal on Tuesday after 3:00 pm to check the trimester 1 progress of your studenT(s). If you have questions or concerns please reach out directly to the teacher or case manager.

5.. ATTENDANCE Reminder – Students do have assignments for the days that they are engaged in independent learning at home. If a student returns to school and has not completed work and there has been no communication from the parent, the student will be marked absent for the day they were home. If your student has an appointment (please get a note), is ill, you should notify the office so that it is accounted for in the attendance record. We have to account for attendance to the State of NH for all days (remote and in school).
