    Hello Lower Devo Families and Friends,

    We hope this message finds you well and hopefully having seen the last of winter as we all have been waiting eagerly for the full fledged arrival of Spring.

    Class Placement Process

    On Friday you should have received a letter in your student's backpack/home folder that outlined the class placement process in which we will be engaging in the coming months.  The goal of the placement process is to create balanced and equitable classes that provide the optimal learning environment for both the individual child and the group of children as a whole.  Friendships are considered, but our primary focus is to provide appropriate learning peers for each student, understanding that each year brings new opportunities for friendships. We invite each family to reach out and share with us any information that you feel we may not already know and would be beneficial in the placement process.  Submitting a letter is optional.  The same care and consideration will be given to every child during the placement process whether a parent/guardian submits input. 

    For more information about the placement process and how to submit your letter should you choose to do so, please read the Class Placement Letter.

    If you are planning on moving and/or sending your child(ren) to another school for the 2017-2018 School Year please fill out the online Intent to Withdraw form to help us gather information regarding next year’s students (You only need to fill out one form for all your children).


    Literacy Learning at Devo

    We hope you will all be able to join us this Wednesday (April 5th) from 6:00 - 7:00pm in the 5th Floor Multipurpose Room.  We will be joined by our friends from Upper Devo and engage in a presentation about the Literacy Collaborative.  You will have a chance to interact with Caitlin Paget, Lower Devo literacy coach, and Jen Sanders, Upper Devo literacy coach, as they walk us through what instruction looks/feels like in a literacy collaborative classroom and what you can expect as a family in terms of supporting your student(s).  

    Specialists Newsletter

    Our Art, Music, Spanish, and P.E. specialists along with our Librarian have been super busy these past months providing enriching opportunities and engaging activities and lessons for each of your children.  Read more about what has been happening these past two months in the latest edition of the Specialists' Newsletter.


    Don't forget to make room in your schedules this weekend for the 8th grade performance of Into the Woods (Saturday at 7:00p and Sunday at 2:00p) at Upper Devotion School.  We hope to see you all there!

    Dave and Jen

  • Visiting New Devotion School

    Posted by Monica Crowley at 4/24/2017 7:00:00 AM

    Welcome Back, Everyone!

    I hope the April break was wonderful and relaxing. This past Friday, Jen, Dave and I got a tour of the new Devotion School. It was so exciting to be on site and walking through the construction as the gym, multi-purpose room, classrooms and many other rooms were pointed out to us. The team of workers, close 120 each day at this point were focused and working hard. We learned that up to 200 workers and then more will be on site starting in the fall once all the framing is complete and outside walls erected. From then on, it’s all interior work. Again, it was shared that they are on time and the building is going to be spectacular. Drive by or walk by if you are able, the transformation is amazing to see.
