  • Weekly Parent Update 1/17/15

    Good Morning,

    I hope this email finds you and your families well on this frigid Saturday.  Below are some upcoming events and reminders.  

    • January 19- No school.  Martin Luther King Day.

    • January 20- Middle School Curriculum Meetings.  Teachers will not be available that day for extra help after school.  

    • January 21- Basketball @ Nettle.  This is the last game of the regular season.  I am very proud of our student/athletes. Our basketball players and cheerleaders have shown great sportsmanship and school spirit.   Charger Nation is eagerly anticipating the playoffs. Our trophy case in the main lobby needs more championship plaques.  GO CHARGERS!!!!

    • Our school and district is leading the “Charge” to utilize Google Drive.  Mr. Oelerich, Dr. Thakkar, the ISchool Team, and Mrs. Kukenberger have been instrumental in preparing the launch for this initiative.  Below is Assistant Superintendent Mrs. Kukenberger’s letter to introduce parents to the many benefits and features of Google Drive.  

    Dear Parents and/or Guardians:

    Haverhill Public Schools continues to plan and implement high levels of learning to empower our students to be productive digital citizens in the 21st century.  In doing so, your student’s middle school will be launching the use of Google Apps for Education (GAFE).  Throughout this upcoming school year, students in grades 5-8 will learn to use this technology as a tool to increase productivity, communication, and collaboration with other students and teachers.

    Currently students and teachers at Haverhill High School utilize GAFE on a daily basis as their primary means of creating, editing, storing and sharing documents.  To facilitate this endeavor at the middle school level, your child will be provided with an HPS managed restricted user account.  This secure account will be accessible to your child throughout their Haverhill Public School career.  

    Individual classroom teachers will begin utilizing these tools in ways that best meet the needs of their students as soon January 15, 2015.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your building principal.  

    Sincerely,

    Julie Kukenberger

    • Please do not drop off your child before 8:05.  

    • We try to go out for recess if the weather allows it.  Make sure the kiddos are bundled up.  

    • Half day dismissals are at 11:05.  You can download a school calendar from www.haverhill-ps.org  

    • If your child will be absent, please call the school in the morning.  

    • If you change your phone number or address, please contact the main office ASAP.  

    Thank you again for all your support. Dr. Thakkar, Mr. Oelerich, and I are always available if you have any concerns or questions.  Enjoy the remainder of the long weekend with your families.  Go Pats!  My prediction is New England 35 Colts 30.  

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Mele

    Good Morning,
    I hope you all are having a restful weekend. The middle school students should still be tired from the dance last night. What a wonderful turnout! The kids were very well-behaved, and a fun time was had by all. I know a few of the teachers are tired since they were trying to keep up with kiddos on the dance floor. I want to thank Miss McCarthy and the cheerleaders for sponsoring and working the dance. They did a fabulous job. I would like to have another dance in February.
