Principal's Message


Dear Sheehan Families,

Thank you to all who attended Curriculum Night. It is a wonderful evening for parents and teachers!  We appreciate all that you do to support our school.

Over the summer, our Grade 4 students read the novel " Wonder" by RJ Palacio.  Last week, we met in book discussion groups to discuss the major themes of the book; kindness, respect, and friendship.  Our students created their own " Precepts"  or phrases to live by and inspire one another  each day.  Two of my favorites are: "If you cannot think of something kind to say, you haven't thought long enough." and " Share a smile, it will go on forever"  Our students did a beautiful job creating these wonderful phrases. It is our hope that these " precepts" will help guide us on our path to greater kindness at the Sheehan School. 

Please ask your child to discuss their favortie and we welcome any new precepts that your child would like to share with the school.

Each month, I hold a Principal's Coffee. This is open to everyone as an opportunity to share the wonderful happenings taking place at the school as well as to listen to your thoughts and ideas. Our first Principal's Coffee is Friday, September 30th at 9;00 in the Sheehan Library.  

Our students are off to an amazing start.  So  many awesome moments of learning are taking place every day.  In  Mrs. Truman's and Mrs. Monteiro's Kindergarten classrooms our students were learning their poems of the week that touches upon rhyming,  letter sounds, and their phonics skills.  Our Grade 4 students were very engaged in their Reader's Workshop as well as taking a virtual tour using hyperlinks of the United States learning specific geographical features.

Have a wonderful week. Hope to see many of you at our Fall Family Picnic, Tuesday, September 20th.
