COMMUNITY HELPERS VISIT CALLAHAN!

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Paragios, Mrs. Cole and Mrs. Stinson's classroom have been learning about community helpers as part of our new reading program: Reach.
This week we were visited by Brian Stinson from the US Coast Guard, Estarlo Abreu of the Lynn Fire Department, and Officers Chris Kelly and Mark Lee from the Lynn Police Department.
Students were able to connect classroom learning to real world experience. Thank you to our fabulous community helpers!

PUMPKINS AND READING BUDDIES!
THINK POSITIVE!

Students at the Callahan Elementary were recently treated to the delights of "Johnny the K".  Through song, jokes and change of hats, 'Johnny the K' spoke of ways to treat others that support Callahan's new initiative of PBIS: Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. Students cheered and clapped as they learned songs that incorporated the Callahan Core Values: Safety, Ownership, Attitude and Respect. 
Excitement abounds as the students continue to learn and practice these songs during music.

Greetings Callahan Families,

I’d like to once again thank the PTO for sponsoring our annual Monster Ball.  What a wonderful success.   With this event in the past and Halloween fast approaching I believe it’s best for our school not to host individual classroom costume parties.   Most of our students celebrate this holiday in many ways and I don’t believe we can afford losing any valuable academic time to do much more.  That said, we are encouraging students to leave costumes at home to be enjoyed for Trick or Treating or other special eventsin the neighborhood. 

Teachers will offer their students a special treat, story, or activity related to this day on Friday, October 30th.  We appreciate your support with our decision not to host classroom costume parties. 

Sincerely,
Dr. Fay
