May Open Circle Lunch
May 8th was the date of Main Street School's most recent Open Circle
Lunch. Students honored at this lunch were recognized for their
Leadership abilities. These students were applauded by their peers,
sat at the table of honor and photographed "racing" with their
teacher, Mr. Adler and Mrs. Cadorette. We don't think you'll be
surprised to see who won the races. Congratulations to our
spectacular Open Circle students!
***REMINDER** This year's 5K, fitness walk and Fun Runs will be held
on Saturday, May 18th. To register, or learn more about this event,

Principal's May Letter
Dear MSS Families,
The Harlem Wizards- The last time I dribbled a basketball was when my son and daughter were elementary age and we played Around the World in our driveway. My lack of basketball experience has not prevented me from responding to the call from the Middle School for SAU 16 staff to play in a fundraiser for the CMS PTO. My teenage son is loaning me his black Nike basketball shoes and I’m ready to play next Monday, May 6th. Faculty from schools within the SAU 16 will be playing against the Harlem Wizards at the Exeter High School at 6:30 p.m. I encourage MSS families to come and enjoy this fun-filled family night and cheer on the teachers from MSS who have volunteered to play. Tickets for this event can be purchased from MSS at our front desk. They are also available for purchase the night of the event at Exeter High School. If you are interested in learning more about this event please visit the attached website.
Happy Library Month- MSS school enjoyed celebrating Library Month in April. We are proud of our library and for the support it provides to our students’ learning. The library has an extensive collection of books and other media and is skillfully managed by our media specialist Diane Taylor, and her two assistants Karen McQueen and Debra McLarnon. We are also fortunate to have many parent volunteers who offer time in the library. Prior to vacation, a class of second grade children discussed what the library meant to them. The students shared, “We love to learn all about new ideas and taking out books. Reading is a pleasure. We can read about people and their biographies. We also love being read to.” The library is an important part of the MSS curriculum.
Safety Reminder- As the good weather arrives please take some time to review safety information related to children walking and/or biking to and from school. Students are encouraged to walk or bike with a parent or another adult. Students riding their bikes are required to wear a helmet.
Bike Rodeo- A Bike Rodeo for second grade students will be taking place on Saturday, May 4th from 9:00-11:00 am at Main Street School. There will be an obstacle course, bike safety activities, a bike safety check by Exeter Cycle and free helmets from Exeter Hospital for all participants. All second grade students are invited to attend with an adult. Parking will be at Lincoln Street School.
Last day of school- The snow shovels have been put away and we fully expect that the last day of school for our Kindergarten students will be June 14th and the last day for first and second graders will be June 20th.
