Attendance Stars Program: This week we are starting our new “Attendance Stars” program – each week classes can earn points for having great attendance and participation, and students can become “Star Student of the Week”! We love seeing our students in class everyday, help us encourage every scholar to come to school ready to learn every day and they may be the next Attendance Star to earn prizes!

ARCK Supply Kits: If your student’s teacher has reached out to you about picking up supplies for their art program, please come to the school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday (NOT Wednesday) to pick them up during school hours (8:30-3:00)

We Are All Connected

We are a diverse and dynamic public elementary school in the heart of Boston’s South End. Our nearly 600 students live in nearly every neighborhood in Boston, speak over 8 languages, and represent many different cultural backgrounds.

Our school’s guiding principle is Ubuntu, a Zulu word that means I am because we are.

This spirit of community represents our school’s commitment to offering a place for families to come together to make their community stronger.
