Main Street School students and staff celebrated “Hat Day” on Friday, November 20th in return for a small monetary donation to the Exeter Chamber Children’s Fund campaign called, “Kids Helping Kids.” The donations will be used to purchase warm clothing and blankets for students in the greater Exeter region. The students pictured here were honored during an Open Circle Luncheon on this day for their problem solving skills.

Dear Main Street School Families,
Parent Conferences- Last Wednesday and this coming Tuesday, November 10th are early release days that have been put into the school calendar to enable teachers to have time for parent conferences. These conferences are an important opportunity for teachers to share information with you about your child’s social and academic growth. It is also a chance for you to see our report card and learn about how teachers use the report card to communicate information about student growth. Our goal as a school is for every family to have a conference with their child’s classroom teacher. If you have not yet set up a conference, please be sure to contact your child’s classroom teacher.
Blue Ribbon School- Once again Main Street School has received the Blue Ribbon award and has been recognized by the state for the strong partnership we have with our parents and community. We are proud to be supported by our many volunteers who are essential to helping us achieve our mission as a school and we thank all of our volunteers for their time and commitment.
Parking at Main Street School during dismissal – In order for dismissal at the end of the day to run safely and smoothly we need your help. Please only park in the small parking lot next to the school if you have a handicap-parking sticker. Two spots are identified as handicap, but that is not enough to accommodate all the families who require handicap parking. If you do not have a handicap-parking sticker, please park in the lot below,
We encourage parents to have children ride the bus as much as possible. Even with a new parking lot, there is still a limit to the number of cars that can be accommodated at the end of the day. Please only park in designated spots and not along the buses. If you park in the parking lot during dismissal, exit right onto Main Street. Only buses should be going up the connector road to Lincoln Street School.
Next Year’s Dog Tag in Exeter- On Election Day, November 3rd, all of the Kindergarten students at Main Street School voted on the shape for next year’s dog tag in Exeter. Andrea Kohler, the town clerk of Exeter, brought ballots with three different dog tag shapes to each Kindergarten classroom. Students put an x next to the shape they liked the most. The students brought their ballots to the principal’s office where they were placed into a locked ballot box. Several of our second grade students helped to count the ballots the next day. The dog bone shape was the winner of this year’s election.
