  • Much to be thankful for

    It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here. At this time of year, we try to reflect on all the good things happening at South Row, in Chelmsford and around our world. We are fortunate to have such an incredible community of teachers, students and parents. We thank our whole school community of teachers, students and parents for making South Row such a caring community in which students feel safe, take risks in their learning and work to appreciate one another. We are very proud and thankful to be the principal and assistant principal of the South Row Elementary School. We wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Kind Acts at South Row

    During November, all the students and staff will be writing letters to our service members in appreciation for their service to our country. The fourth grade team of teachers is leading this kind act for our school. Here is what we have told our students and families about this kind act:


    Writing a letter is a meaningful way for students to show their support for our Military.  In celebration of Veterans Day, students can write a letter to Military personnel expressing thanks for their service.  If students are too young to write, they can make a drawing.  The letters and drawings will be sent to the Bedford VA Hospital to show our military personnel that “WE CARE!”


    Report Cards / Conferences

    First term report cards for students in grades 1-4 will be available for families on the X2 Family Portal on Thursday, December 13th. On both Thursday November 29th and Tuesday December 4th, there are early release days for students so that teachers in grades 1-4 can host Parent-Teacher Conferences. This is a really important event for families and teachers to connect regarding their child’s/student’s education. I hope you will sign up for a time and be able to commit to attending the conference. In addition, if you have not already done so, please check that you are able to access your child’s report card through the family portal account.

    As a reminder, Kindergarten has just two terms of report cards. The first term report cards will be available to Kindergarten parents on Thursday January 17th. Conferences will be held at this time, but the exact day is still TBD.
