Field Day Date Change

Due to the extreme heat forecasted for Thursday, June 1st, we have decided to change our field day to Monday, June 5th (our rain date).

Kona Ice will still come on Thursday as originally planned and classes will go out during the school day to get their treat.

Next Monday, please send in your child with their new Bakie T-shirt, a water bottle, sunscreen, and a hat.  

We are looking forward to a fun field day!

Summer Learning Program for Incoming Kindergarteners

This program is for students entering kindergarten this fall of 2023, any child (who did not already register for Upstart) is eligible, and there are no restrictions.

Upstart has just opened registration for our summer learning program, which aims to help families in New Hampshire prepare children for kindergarten this fall. Common barriers can keep families from accessing early learning solutions. Waterford Upstart Summer Learning Path was developed to try to help overcome these barriers by providing free resources to support caregivers who are already doing the much-needed work their children need so they can enter school prepared. 

● Caregivers may register their children now at https://www.waterford.org/upstart/
