Grade 3 Visitor

Michael Page from NECN/NBC10 came today to talk to the 3rd grade classes about weather. Check out the news tomorrow morning at 4:45am, 5:45am, and 6:45am if you’d like to see them in front of the “Weather Warrior,” NECN/NBC’s weather vehicle.

Peer Mentoring

The Peer Mentoring program pairs selected Wellesley High School students with interested Sprague students.  Once a week, high school mentors come to Sprague to help students with homework and other needs.  This is a great opportunity for your child to receive additional help with homework after school on a regular basis! It also allows children to build a positive and supportive relationship with a local high school student.

For Whom: Sprague students

Where and When: At Sprague every Tuesday from 3:05pm to 4:00pm.  This program will run from November 13th – December 11th.  These are the scheduled dates for the program: TUESDAYS: November 13, 20, 27; December 4, 11.

Note: The program will take place in Ms. Blumenthal’s room (Room 113).  Ms. Blumenthal and Ms. Perry will be supervising each Tuesday. Your child may bring a snack if they would like.

If you are interested in having your child participate, please email Ms. Blumenthal ( Once she knows the exact number of high school students that will be volunteering, she will begin accepting Sprague students. Please watch for a permission slip in your child’s backpack. It will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Pick up will occur at 4:00 p.m. sharp in car line.
