Green Meadow and Fowler PTO Guest Speaker, Sarah Ward Coming in December

Learn how to teach children to effectively balance and manage their academic work and materials, plus their time, with guest speaker Sarah Ward at the Fowler School Auditorium on December 15. This event is being hosted by the Green Meadow PTO and the Fowler School PTO.

She will be providing parents, teachers and local professionals with actionable, practical ways they can help their children develop their “executive function” skills. Those are the skills we all use and need to plan, start and finish tasks on time. During this two-hour event, you will learn how to effectively teach the children in your life to:

• Create a homework space
• Organize personal and school materials
• Record assignments and create a schedule
• Manage time and tasks
• Complete long term projects

Sarah Ward regularly presents on the topic of executive functions to a variety of professional and parent organizations. Her innovative and effective approaches have been featured on National Public Radio, and she is the recipient of multiple awards, including the Massachusetts General Hospital Expertise in Clinical Practice Award and Faculty in Excellence Award.

Please join us for this free event at the Fowler School Auditorium on December 15, from 7-9 p.m. Please RSVP by sending an email to Jen Lenicheck @

Central Office Relocation Update

The central office relocation from the Coolidge School to Fowler is on target to be conducted during the vacation week from December 24th through January5th.  Any business that needs to be conducted with the central office can be done at the Coolidge School before December 24th and at the Fowler school after January 6th.

We didn't want there to be any confusion as you may have seen the new sidewalk and central office sign from Coolidge being moved to the Fowler school.  Other facility and security preparations are projected to be completed on time and we are excited to begin central office business from Fowler in the new year.
