Tide Pool Condos

Dear Students and Families,

Today was the last performance of “Tide Pool Condos.”  I am so proud of the students!  The performance was incredible!  I would also like to thank you all for coming to see the children perform.  They were very excited that you were in attendance, and hearing your laughter and applause was very encouraging.

I have a request.  During the performance, I noticed many parents recording the play.  If you are willing to share, I would love to show the recordings to the students!  Please e-mail me at jrubera@haverhill-ps.org.  Thank you!


Reminder: Science Test Tomorrow

Dear Students and Families,

I am just writing to remind you that there is a science test tomorrow.  Test alerts will still be accepted, so please sign and return them to receive 5 extra points on the test!

Science Test Alert

Dear Students and Families,

On Friday, June 1, 2018, students will be having a science test on human body systems.  The test will have 13 multiple choice questions and 7 fill in questions. The test will cover the following material:  

  • levels of organization
  • functions of each body system
  • how body systems work together
  • label an illustration of each body system (you will not have to label organs or other structures…you just need to identify the whole body system based on all of its structures)

To help you study, please refer to the Levels of Organization notes.  I also recommend you study the notes we took during class that you made into a book.  Last, I recommend you watch the National Geographic Human Body Systems and review the notes that go along with that video.  

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you!

Grade 6 Field Trip

Dear Students and Families,

On Monday, June 11, 2018, we will be walking to the Haverhill Firefighting Museum for a field trip.  At the museum, students will have the opportunity to learn about the history of firefighting, fire safety, and September 11, 2001.  Students will also have the opportunity to meet and speak with Maria Fontaine, the artist who designed the sculpture in front of the museum.

Permission slips are being sent home today.   It is important that all parts marked with an asterisk (*) be signed, or the student will not be allowed on the trip.  Students will return at lunchtime, so a lunch is not needed.  The cost of the field trip is $5.00.  The permission slips are due Friday, May 29, 2018.  Thank you for your assistance with this!

We will also need chaperones for the field trip.  All chaperones must have a current CORI on file.  Please call us at (978) 374-5782 to check if you have an updated CORI form.  We have CORI forms in the office available; please bring your license because a copy is required.
