Dear Monomoy Families and Staff,

As March comes to a close, our schools have been brimming with activity, including fantastic theatrical and musical performances at both the high school and middle school, visits by both middle school students and elementary school students to the high school, high school field trips to local colleges and Walden Pond, and, of course, lots of learning in our classrooms.

I’m pleased to share that the MRSD budget has been fully approved by the Finance Committee and Select Boards in both Chartham and Harwich. The next step is for the budget to be approved at Town Meeting in both towns, as well as in the Town Elections. In Harwich, Town Meeting will be May 1, 2023, and Town Elections are May 16, 2023; in Chatham, Town Meeting will be May 6, 2023, and Town Elections are May 11, 2023. We encourage you to participate in the process.

If you missed our Parent University sessions on self-esteem in young people, held this week and last, you can find the video recording and presentation slides from both sessions, as well as the handouts, on our website here: Both sessions were filled with helpful information on how adults can help support the self-esteem and growth of the children in our lives.

Take care.

Scott Carpenter, Ed.D.
