You can always leave a message on our answering machine before or after those hours, and we will get back to you ASAP. • Dr. Thakkar updates our website daily. Please visit this site at for important information. • If your child is planning to participate in a winter or spring intramural sport, he/she must have a valid physical examination on file in the nurse’s office within the last 13 months.

  • Weekly Parent Update 9/20/14

    Good Morning,

    I am pleased to announce that our 2013-2014 MCAS scores have been released to the public.  Consentino is still a level 2 school.  This is a credit to our dedicated staff and supportive parents.  We are very proud of this ranking considering all the changes and programs we as a school community have undertaken the past four years.  We will continue to strive to become a level 1 school.  If you have any questions regarding the state rankings and our school programs, please call Dr. Thakkar, Mr. Oelerich , or I and we will be happy to discuss these issues with you.

    Our chorus and guitar programs have begun.  I am very impressed with the number of children participating in these classes.  I want to thank Ruth Cranton for her dedication and passion for these initiatives. She is the best music teacher in the city.

    The cross country and soccer programs are in full swing as well.  The coaches and children have worked extremely hard the past couple of weeks to prepare for the competitive matches.  The schedules are posted on our website.  Dr. Thakkar updates this website daily.   If you have any questions, please call me or Dr. Thakkar directly.

    Below are some important dates/events/reminders:

    • October 1- Early Release.  Dismissal is at 11:05

    • October 8- Progress Reports will be distributed for K-8.

    • October 13- Columbus Day- No school

    Remember to call the school if your child will be absent.  Our office hours are 8:00 am- 3:45 pm.  You can always leave a message on our answering machine.

    Children are considered late after 8:45.  Please be sure to have your child at school on time.

    I have noticed that many parents are dismissing children before 2:45.  We would appreciate it if you would schedule appointments before or after school hours.  Dismissals are very disruptive to the teachers and students.  Thank you for your cooperation.

    Lastly, I want to thank you for your continued support.  If you ever have any concerns/questions, please call me directly.  Have a great weekend with your families.


    Mr. Mele
