January Building Community

It’s hard to believe we’re already past the half-way point for this current school year and making plans for next year!  As we look ahead to February, please note that reenrollment contracts for your children for the 2019-20 school year will be emailed by February 21.   This process should take approximately 15 minutes to finish and you’ll have until Friday, March 8 to complete and submit your reenrollment packet.   Your children create a warm climate each day by coming to school happy, engaged and ready to learn!  We are thankful for the privilege of having your children as students and look forward to continuing our partnership with your family.  If at any point you have questions about the electronic reenrollment process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Jen Raterman, Admissions Office Manager at jraterman@applewild.org or ext. 111.  If there are any other questions or concerns, please connect with Debbie Maloney, Director of Admissions at dmaloney@applewild.org or ext. 163.

As you know, parents are our greatest resource in spreading awareness about an Applewild School education.  We appreciate the many ways you work with us to promote our school by sharing social media posts, hanging Open House flyers, volunteering at events, and talking with friends and colleagues about your experiences.  We have new opportunities to invite potential families to attend these upcoming informative events:

Open House – Fitchburg Campus – Saturday, January 26th

Our Winter Open House takes place tomorrow from 11 am to 1pm beginning in the Marshall Lower School.  Guests will have an opportunity to hear the Jazz Band perform, participate in an Orff musical demonstration, tour the campus and enjoy a healthy family-style lunch.  We would happily welcome drop-ins!

Tour & Explore – January 29th at 9am in the Laverack Room

These monthly events on the Fitchburg campus is an informal way for prospective families to tour the school, see our engaged students and teachers in action, and discover what it means to be part of our Applewild community. 

Open House – Devens Campus - Saturday, February 9th from 9am to 11am

All families interested in learning about our preschool, kindergarten and first grade programs at Devens are invited to attend this special event from 9am to 11am.  Prospective families will meet with our dedicated Devens faculty and Admission staff.  Children will be able to enjoy a yoga and art class while families explore our inspiring learning spaces.

Golf Tournament 2019

Our 2019 Golf Committee has begun planning for this year’s tournament at Red Tail Golf Club on Friday, May 17th.  If you have an interest in golf and want to be part of the committee, please attend our next meeting on Wednesday, February 6th at 8am in the Laverack Room at the Crocker Building.  We welcome and encourage you to join us!  All monies raised from this important fundraiser will support our programs and directly benefit all students preschool through grade 8 on both campuses.    We are seeking sponsors, golfers, and donations for the basket raffle and silent auction.  We are also looking for volunteers the day of the event.    More information can be found online at:  https://www.applewild.org/golf/

This fundraiser is a wonderful opportunity for us to engage businesses and showcase their logos (clickable to their websites) as a thank you for their patronage.  If you’d like more information about the golf tournament, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
