Team Fusion Communication: August 25, 2018

Hi to all,

Greetings from Team Fusion and welcome to the 2018-19 school year.  We are looking forward to a great year: field trips to Montreal, Burlington and a state park in the first six weeks of school, transitions for our 8th graders to MMU (wow - you are really there:), and new students (5 new students in the 8th grade!).  Hopefully you have received a copy of the summer letter and supplies list in the mail but another is attached to this email.

To our new 7th grade families - you will receive a weekly email structured much this one most Fridays.  It's our way to communicate what is going on in Team Fusion classrooms and increase transparency about the goings ons within the school.  We also post the weekly communication through this team blog.

In addition, please remember we have a team breakfast for you on Friday morning, August 31 - more information in the attached summer letter.

To our 8th grade families - wow, this grade just keeps getting bigger! We added 5 students over the summer, all of whom moved to our community.  Also, there will be a greater emphasis on transition to MMU (or other educational opportunities) as the year progresses.  Most of the heavy transition work will take place mid-November to February with Move-up Day to MMU in early June!

Much more is in the attached "Welcome" letter sent over the summer. The team looks forward to seeing your children on Wednesday - enjoy the last few days of "academic" summer.
