Principal's Blog: Welcome Back

Principal Lumpris

 

Dear Kelly STEAM Families,

I hope you have had a wonderful summer spending time with family and friends! THIS SUMMER, Kelly STEAM has been a bustling place as we welcomed new staff members, worked on curriculum, and hosted summer school programs for students across the district. I am very excited to start the new school year and to welcome all of our new and returning Kelly STEAM students!

Our first day of school is August 30, 2021, and it is a full day of school. Below are a few reminders for a safe and productive start to the new school year. Please read the following carefully and reach out to the school with any questions or concerns:

  • The school day begins promptly at 8:05 AM. Breakfast is available starting at 7:50 AM. Please know that being in school on time every day is critical to the success of every child! Tardy students must sign in to the main office and get a pass to class.
  • All Norwich Public Schools’ students must be in school uniform every day. Please see our website for uniform information. If your family needs assistance in obtaining school uniforms, please contact the Main Office at 860-823-4211.
  • Student cell phone use is NOT permitted during the school day. Students who choose to bring their phone to school must keep it locked in their lockers at all times. 
  • On the first day of school, students will gather by grade level to meet teachers, connect with friends, and orient themselves to Kelly STEAM. They will receive copies of their schedule and will have time to learn the procedures we use.

We will ring in the new school year with a family BACK TO SCHOOL PICNIC on August 27 at 5:30 PM. We hope all families will come out to meet new people and reconnect with friends. Teachers and staff are excited to welcome new and returning students. Our custodial staff continues to work hard to prepare the building for the first day. Our main office staff is always available to answer questions for families. It is going to be another fabulous year at Kelly STEAM Magnet Middle School! KELLY PRIDE . . . STEAM STRONG!
