Francis J. Varieur Elementary School
Newsletter- May and June, 2022
Dear Varieur Families,
I hope you are all doing very well and staying healthy. The warmer days are finally upon us and the children are excited that summer is almost here. This newsletter is a combined newsletter for the months of May and June.
Grades three through six students did a great job with the ELA portion of RICAS testing. We will continue with the Math portion of RICAS testing next week.
May 16th - May 20th. Again, please make sure your child gets to school on time and gets a good night's sleep.
Please continue to have your child read nightly for 20 minutes. There were so many AR ribbons given out this past Friday; I was so proud of how motivated our children are to read. While Accelerated Reader is no longer a program that is used by the Pawtucket School Department, Varieur was given the one time opportunity to purchase and use it this past year. This purchase will not be allowed for this upcoming school year. But we, at Varieur, will continue to provide motivational incentives for our students’ dedicated reading. So keep your children reading!
Fun days and nights are happening here at Varieur in the month of May and June. May 20th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM will be a 3rd and 4th grade dance. This is for all their hard work for RICAS testing. Grades 5 and 6 will also have a dance and their dance date is May 27th from 6:00PM to 8:00 PM. Permission slips went home with children last week. It will be a fun time for the children.
Springo Bingo is also taking place this month. Flyers will be sent home this week so you can buy Bingo cards ahead of time. Springo Bingo is Thursday, May 26, 2022. It is from 6:00PM -7:30PM. We are all looking forward to this family fun event.
Kindergarten Graduation will be Wednesday, June 15th from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
Invitations will be sent home the week of June 5th. Can’t wait for this exciting night.
There will also be a 5th grade move up day for 5th grade students on Thursday, June 16th. It will be from 2:00 PM to 3:00PM. More information will follow from the 5th grade teachers.
There will be a sixth grade move up night at Varieur. It will be Thursday, June 16th from 6:00PM to 7:00PM in the Varieur cafeteria. Keep an eye out for a flier.
Our Field Day is Friday, June 17th. It will be an all day event for the children. Lunch will be a BBQ cookout from Aramark.
Our last day of school is June 21, 2022.
Please have a wonderful and safe summer and we will see you in the fall.
Ms. Boucher, M.Ed
