    It looks like we jumped the gun on winter’s arrival in our last update. We’ve let go of dreams of sledding parties on the hill and brought the soccer nets back out. If we can’t have winter then let’s hurry up with spring!!  Along with mud season, March brings Town Meetings and Voting Day. Voting will be held on Tuesday, March 13th from 10am-7pm. School will be in session and we ask that you please drive slowly and carefully around the school.
