So many thanks to PE Teacher Maggie Schack and Friends of Buker (led by Alex Mahan) for a hugely successful 2022 Field Day. Additional thanks to the many parents who came to run the stations and cover the lunch/recess needs.  The beautiful weather lent itself to a very fun day.

 

Parents are welcome to come to the Move Up Day Assembly, Friday, 6/17 at 1:45pm in the auditorium. We will acknowledge our 'graduating' fifth graders, and celebrate the rising grade levels for our other students.

**Due to the continued labor shortage, we have been unsuccessful in our attempts to secure enough transportation to restore this program to its pre-covid size. We are disappointed we will be unable to offer this program to the middle school this year. We will continue our attempts to bring back this program, in its entirety, when we can secure enough transportation. Thank you for your understanding and patience.**

    Autism 102: What's Next

    Tuesday, November 8th from 7-8:30pm

    via ZOOM

    A Workshop for Parents of Diagnosed Children/Teens/Young Adults (through age 22)

    The Hamilton Wenham SEPAC is pleased to bring AANE (Asperger Autism Network) via ZOOM for this virtual presentation. Families are often unsure what to do upon learning their child or teen has an autism diagnosis. Whether handed a report with dozens of recommendations or leaving a clinician’s office with none, this workshop will give you tools and ideas for a path forward. Topics include crafting a vision for your child and your family to help with decision making, figuring out the “right” services, getting started with educational advocacy, public support, respite, and more.
