Learning Celebration 

Our Learning Celebrations took place last week. Our Primary classes showcased their study of the Wampanoag Indians that culminated in a feast that they prepared for parents/guardians.

The following night, Intermediate classes transported us back in history where ancient civilizations were brought back to life.  We also enjoyed some music presentations as well as student’s work created during Art.

Core Value – Caring

We began our discussion about Caring by describing what it means as well as what it sounds like. We are also continuing to collect donations for the homeless family that we are helping to get settled hopefully in time for the holiday.

PEF News

All parents are invited to our next PEF Meeting on Monday, Jan 12th at 7pm at the school.  We have many exciting things going on and are eager to have parent input.

After School Enrichments

We are actively looking for parent volunteers to run enrichment courses. If you have a skill you’d like to share with the students at Polaris please email us at pefenrichment@gmail.com. Some ideas that have been suggested in the past are sewing, astronomy, and programming, but all ideas are welcome!

PEF Auction– The PEF Auction Planning Committee will be having a meeting at the Bedford Panera on Tuesday, January 5th at 7pm.  The Committee could use parent volunteers as well as parental input as this event is planned.  Please attend if you are able.

Polaris Game Day– The PEF is excited to announce a Game Day! This fun event will be held on January 14, 2017 at 10am.

Pizza Ordering Reminder– Please use the order forms.  If for some reason you are not able to use the form, it is very important that you include your child’s NAME, CLASS, and # of pizza slices and if the pizza is Gluten Free (GF) with the money that you turn in.  Otherwise, your order may not be placed correctly and your child is likely to be disappointed. Thank you!

School Spirit Wear– School Spirit Wear is now available on line. Choose sizes from toddler to 5X. This year’s selection includes great customization options as well as new options such as coffee mugs and winter hats. There is no deadline to order. The school store is here year round. However, each order is customized and can take up to 14 days to process and complete.  We recommend you make all holiday orders at least 20 days in advance.  The store has available special custom options including shirts that say Polaris Mom, Grandma, Uncle or Dad will make a great gift for the holidays! Order any time:
