The Alice Macomber School would like to announce the new Free Breakfast Program beginning, Thursday, October 1, 2015.
Studies have consistently shown that students who eat breakfast benefit nutritionally and educationally. Starting the day with breakfast has been associated with improved academic performance, improved classroom behavior and attentiveness, and fewer visits to the nurse. Busy parents also benefit tremendously from the School Breakfast Program because their children will receive a healthy, balanced, and free "Grab n Go" breakfast meal at school that eases the burden of their hectic morning rush.
The new "Grab n Go" breakfast will be available to all Kindergarten through 2nd grade students at "no charge". Students will receive their "Grab n Go" breakfast as they enter the school each morning. Students will receive 2 whole grain rich items and one cup of 100% fruit juice. Students have the option to take a fruit over the fruit juice.
Please contact Michelle Rapoza, School Business Manager, with any questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 774-309-3371.
Attention: The next athletic boosters meeting has been changed to Wed Sept 30th at 7 PM due to other town meetings and conflicts this week. Please do not forget that the WES/MAC PTO meeting is this Tuesday at 6:30 PM at MAC.
Welcome to the Westport Community Schools. Our school district offers a wonderful and diverse educational opportunity for all our students.
As many of you know, public school finance has faced unprecedented challenges in the past few years. In addition to funding challenges, Massachusetts has taken an aggressive approach to education reform. As such, expectations have never been higher while, at the same time, challenges have never been greater. In spite of all that has developed at the State level in the past few years, Westport Community Schools continues to maintain positive results for student growth and achievement. Our students shine not only in the classroom but on the stage, (through the arts, band, chorus), on the field and through extra-curricular activities.
Through their pre-kindergarten through grade twelve schooling, our students work to develop integrity, accountability, a strong work ethic, and multiple other qualities that help them become successful contributors to our society. Students in Westport are well poised for success upon completion of their education. The parents, teachers, staff, and community do a remarkable job of supporting our students and setting high expectations that translate in to student success for years to come.
Please regularly check out our website for updates and happenings. We are also on Facebook! Check us out when you get a chance.
