I hope you each had a productive week as we close out the month of May.  I want to begin with a shout-out to our METCO staff for hosting the recent METCO awards night in Boston.  I appreciated how the local venue allowed many more of our Boston families to attend and celebrate the students who were recognized that night.  As a reminder, this Sunday, the Friends of Wellesley METCO and Building Bridges program will be hosting the third annual spring hike at Millennium Park in Boston from 12-3pm. 

On Sunday, Schofield will also be hosting its annual 5K Fun Run/Fun Fair.  The weather should be beautiful for this well-attended event.  Please check out this site for more details.

I know there are an incredible number of events occurring at our schools in these final two weeks of the school year.  Thanks to all of our staff who are putting in extra work and time to make these moments for our students as special as possible.  

Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for your service to our students!

Best, David
