We gratefully acknowledge the ongoing contributions from the following corporate partners: 







 Twins, Traffic Changes & More...

We've got babies! 
Please join us in welcoming Laura W.'s twins - Margo and Greyson. They arrived on Tuesday afternoon. Mom, dad and babies are resting and getting to know one another. We are thrilled for them!

SAS a Success...
The kids did a fabulous job making their way through the standardized test, known as SAS, this week! They were helped along by our caring staff as well as some volunteers who donated their time and great energy during our Movement Breaks. Please join us in thanking MFCS Parents, Terri Giovagnoli & Sarah Duffley, as well as staffers who are also SNHU's Assistant Basketball Coaches, Ms. Alyssa and Ms. Elizabeth. Next week we look forward to a full hip-hop and Caribbean rhythm  extravaganza in the final Movement Break which will be led by MFCS dad, Ramon Solomon.

New Neighbors / New Traffic Pattern
On Monday, the students and staff from Making Community Connections (MC2) will open their doors here at 100 William Loeb Drive. 
MC2 is a NH charter school which provides middle schoolers and high schoolers with creative, project-driven and experiential programming. Their mission seeks to "grow  knowledge, skills, and dispositions in their students"  which  will allow them "to discover and use their unique voices effectively and with integrity in co-creating our global public world." MC2 has one campus in Manchester, and another in Monadnock. Ms. Shannon has spoken with all of our students today about our new neighbors.

With the arrival of MC2, we will be returning to a drop off and pick up plan we used previously. Please take a moment to review the plan pictured here. Please ALSO review the details and procedures.

The Traffic Pattern Change is as follows: As you reach the stop sign at the end of William Loeb Drive, you will turn LEFT instead of right and head down the hill toward the rear of the building. There you will make a u-turn and head back up the hill. You will wait at the corner to enter the semi-circle, which we use now for drop off and pickup, approaching it clockwise (opposite of how you are now driving through). 

Please Note: Kinder 12noon pickup will remain the same as it has been all year.

We will change the numbers on the signs in the circle so you can make your way to one of the 5 stations by following the car in front of you, or head to sign marked #1 if you are the first in line.

It will take a few days to get everyone re-accustomed to this new flow, so we will have extra staff out to help you. We thank you in advance for your patience and extra care during that time. 

Please note, the parking lot currently used for guests will continue to be available to you when you visit/need to enter the school.
