Hello Lower Devo Families and Friends,
With three weeks left in our 2016-2017 school year we are all working hard to finish with focus, reflection, and celebration. The end of the school year brings about mixed emotions for many of our students and families. Some of our friends are saying "see you in September" as we separate for the summer months while others are sharing goodbyes as they move from our community. The range of emotions is on full display in the final month of school and often appears in unanticipated ways. While the excitement of moving on (to a new grade level, to a summer vacation, to a camp, to a new community) is a chance for us to celebrate, it isn't uncommon for students to feel worried, anxious, and uncertain about the unknown. At Lower Devo we are all working hard to support our students during this time of transition by reflecting on our year of learning, celebrating our growth and achievements, and encouraging students to keep the learning going during the summer months. We are keeping routines as consistent as possible and supporting students with the transition by reviewing the past year and previewing what will come in the fall. We encourage you to find some time to reflect with your child on their growth, celebrate their accomplishments, and create a plan to keep the learning going this summer.
We look forward to this special time of reflection and celebration with the community!
Dave and Jen

It has been a spectacular second year at Upper Devotion. Thanks to all the students, families, faculty and staff for being part of such a thriving and exciting learning community. Next year we continue again with grades 5-8!
Grades 5 and 6 will receive a placement letter during the fist week of July. Grades 7 and 8 will receive a letter as well during the first week of July and learn who their advisor is on the first day of school. In addition, all students and families will receive information about buses in August. If you have questions about buses and assignments before that, please contact the Transportation Director at 617-730-2452, as I do not coordinate bus stops or assignments. The position is currently being filled as Mary Murphy is retiring.
Rest, relax, recharge and have a blast!
Mrs. Crowley and Mr. Ola
