Over the past week, our Third Grade students shared their Wax Museum presentations with parents, family and friends!
On May 17, Worcester students and staff participated in the annual Field Day activities. Thank you to Mr. Jeff Jacobs, Mrs. Linda Seibert and all of the parent volunteers who made this day possible!
This morning, Worcester Elementary continued its tradition of celebrating Arbor Day together with the Friends of Worcester. Mr. Jim Phelan from the Friends of Worcester presented to our students and led the planting of a Norway Spruce adjacent to our new outdoor pavilion. We are grateful to Mr. Phelan and to Dr. Wini Hayes from the Friends of Worcester for continuing this tradition and helping our students to understand the importance of preserving trees in our community. We are also grateful to all the members of the Friends of Worcester for supporting this program as well as to The Rhoads Garden for donating the tree.
On Monday, May 8, the Worcester Elementary Community came together to celebrate our Annual Night of the Arts. As has become our tradition, in addition to the Spring Concert, this celebration also showcased our Fine Arts Show, Spring Book Fair and Environmental Club Plant Sale. The tireless efforts of many parents, students, and staff members made this awesome celebration possible. We thank our students for sharing their many talents with the community and our parents for their generous gifts of time and support. In a special way, we extend our gratitude to Mrs. Williams, Ms. Shuey, Miss Trautmann, Mrs. Schwartz, Mrs. Cherry, and Mrs. Keller for their exceptional efforts on behalf of our students. Worcester Elementary is truly a family and our family gathering last night was a celebration of what makes Worcester such a great place to be!
On Wednesday, May 3, Worcester hosted Open House tours for the families of students joining the Worcester Family from Eagleville Elementary at the start of the 2017-2018 school year. Mrs. Jenifer Brucker, incoming Principal of Worcester Elementary, was on-hand to welcome the new students and families. Special gratitude goes out to Mrs. Stephanie Cohen, Mrs. Deb Cherry, Mrs. Alison Moloney, and Mrs. Kristy Schwartz for creating and organizing the event. A special thank you goes out to our Student Ambassadors who led the tours.
Our theme this year is “Leading the P.A.C.K. with Pride, Achievement, Creativity, and Kindness.” Each month, we will recognize students from each of our grade levels who are exemplifying Worcester pride, achievement, creativity and kindness. One girl and one boy from each class will be recognized as “Leaders of the P.A.C.K.” and each will receive a certificate, medal, and magnet. Additionally, they will be recognized by having their picture displayed on the monitor in the front lobby of our school and on our school website. We congratulate the following “Leaders of the P.A.C.K.” for the month of April:
Kindergarten: Morgan Rito, Maxfield Braun
First Grade: Haley Spitko, Ricky Rojas-Lezcano
Second Grade: Avery Fusarelli, Daniel Abbey
Third Grade: Halle Gregory, Tryston Majewski
Fourth Grade: Amelia Chin, Matthew Decker
