Dear Hunnewell,We have a busy week ahead at Hunnewll. I look forward to welcoming Trudy Ludwig this week. We are fortunate to partner on her visit from Oregon to address the Social-Emotional Learning for our children with the Sparague and Bates communities. Trudy will begin her visit at Hunnewell tomorrow morning with two-fifty minute presentations for our K-2 and 3-5 students. Her presentation, Understanding our Kids’ Online and Offline Social World: Friendship, Cliques and Power Plays, for the parents of Sprague, Bates and Hunnewell will be in the WMS Auditorium on Tuesday evening, October 6 from 6:30-8:00 pm. The Wellesley Bookstore will be on hand Tuesday evening to take orders for her various titles. Finally, she will provide professional development, Creating a Safer Social-Emotional Learning Environment, for our three staffs on Wednesday afternoon. I am extremely grateful to our PTO and the PTOs of Bates and Sprague for the opprtunity for students, parents, and teachers to learn together about a topic, social-emotional health, that is central to our shared goal, developing happy, confident, caring children.
I also remind you that Dr. David Lussier will be presenting the School Facilities Committee’s recommendations to address the school needs at Hardy, Hunnewell and Upham in the Hunnewell music room on Wednesday, October 7 from 7:00-8:30pm. 
On a final note, the building heat does not officially get turned on until October 15. For that reason, it is a good idea to dress your child in layers. In the early morning hours before the sun has hit the buidling it can be chilly in the classrooms, so I recommend that your child have a sweater or sweatshirt that can easily be hung on the back of the chair as the buidling warms throughout the day. It was great to see so many of you at the Back to School Night last week and I look forward to seeing you again this week.Sincerely,Ellen
