Good evening

There is no school next week on Tuesday, November 8, 2016 (Election Day) and Friday, November 9, 2016 (Veteran’s Day).

The November PTF Meeting and Yearbook meetings that were scheduled for Wednesday, November 2, 2016 have been canceled.

The November Food Drive will take place beginning on November 1, 2016. Each homeroom has a specific item that your child needs to donate. Please see attached for more information. All food is due by NOVEMBER 17!

Weekend Backpack Program-We continue to try and help the Town recreation department who so generously runs this program for some students in our town. They provide families with some extra snacks for the weekends and evenings. They are in need of donations and here at Callahan we are going to help. We are looking for students to bring in a box of Tuna Fish and/or single servings meals like beefaroni, ravioli, spaghetti o’s with meatballs, etc. Students can bring these items into their homeroom teachers.

A message from the town of Burrillville….

There are many days during the school year when Burrillville Public Schools are closed. Either for full week vacations, one day holidays or Staff professional development days. Well, B.E.C has got you covered! We service children in grades Kindergarten through Seventh grade during all of these breaks. B.E.C is only closed for eight major holidays. The rest of the time we are open 6:30 am - 6:00 pm and ready to have days filled with fun activities and field trips. If this sounds fun and interesting to you and your child, please contact the B.E.C Main office to register them for Holiday/ Vacations and Days off! Please use the link to be directed over to our own page. There you will find all the information you'll need to register your child.
