Author: kkruse  //  Category: Important Dates


This week is No Guff Week all across the Falmouth School District. Students make a commitment to be Peacebuilders and to take a stand against bullying. We had an All School Assembly yesterday and listened to songs & videos that promoted these themes.

Students at Morse Pond put together this video to demonstrate their commitment to “No Guff”.


Field Trip to Cotuit Center for the Arts

Author: kkruse  //  Category: Important Dates


We will be going on a driving field trip on Monday, January 28th to the Cotuit Center for the Arts to see an exhibit called Making Waves.  The exhibit features local artists and all work is displayed at a kid friendly height.  The exhibit is accompanied by a hands on activity.  Each year a newly themed exhibit is displayed.  I have taken my class to see this every year and each year is just as fantastic as the last!  I know your child will enjoy this trip.

We will be leaving Mullen Hall right after recess and will return before dismissal.  The trip will not impact your child’s normal dismissal plans.
