June 7, 2019 O’Maley Family Focus


Dear Families,


It’s hard to believe that we are headed into our last full year of school before summer break. We have had a whirlwind of activity here at O’Maley recently, with the band and chorus concert last week, the 8th grade Human Rights Symposium and a NOAA presentation this week, and field trips to the state house and local venues in process. I would like to provide you an update on upcoming events as the year winds down so that you don’t miss any important opportunities.

Congratulations to Flag Day Essay Contestant Winners!

Skye Ciolino, Grade 6 and Kelsy Frontiero, Grade 7 will be recognized at the Elks Club on Tuesday, June 11 for their essays on what America means to them. We are very proud of their work. I would also like to recognize Marty Behsman, Ceriana Edwards-Worthley, Jane Hermann, Unique Wongus, Nick DeLeon, Samahra Salah, Antonio Favazza, Megan Frates, Natalie Sheedy, and Alexis Thomas, who also submitted very passionate essays about our country.


Specialist Class Preferences

Forms for students to submit their preferences for 7th and 8th  grade specialist classes for next year will be coming out this week. We try as much as possible to provide top choices, but are not always able to do so. All of our specialist classes offer an opportunity for students to experience an in-depth experience in addition to English, Math, Social Studies, and Science. Unless students participate in specialized education services, they are enrolled in two specialist classes per term throughout the year. Classes offered to 7th and 8th grade next year will be:


Band (full year)

Chorus (full year or two terms)

Performing Arts, Health/PE, Art, Spanish, Digital Making with Coding (two terms)


An email reminder will be sent with a link to the form at mid-week.


Enjoy your weekend!

Lynne Beattie, O’Maley Principal
