Donate a Book to ABECC's Library

posted Dec 3, 2018, 8:27 AM by Hillary Stasonis   [ updated Dec 3, 2018, 9:53 AM ]

Dear Families,

This year we are launching a Donate-A-Book program as Bradstreet Bulldog's Book Worms – Bringing Books to Anne Bradstreet  and we need your help!  Please help support the Anne Bradstreet library by purchasing a book in honor of your child’s birthday, a special event (perhaps learning to read!) or just because you love Anne Bradstreet!  

By donating a book you are helping add to the library’s collection. Since this is our first year, we want to quickly build our collection so that there are enough books in circulation for all students to check one out each week during library time.

Please help us show our children how much we value reading and sharing books with others by donating a record number of books this year. We have set an aggressive goal of 1000 books to put into circulation and into the hands of our children!

It’s easy…just follow these simple steps.  

  1. Select and purchase  a book from the Amazon Wish List created by our librarian, Ms. Fisher.

    1. Amazon Wish List: http://bit.ly/BradstreetBookwormsWishlist

  2. The book will be mailed directly to school and a nameplate with your child’s name will be placed inside the front cover of the book.

  3. Once the book is catalogued and shelved, your child will be the first to bring the new book home to read with you!

Should you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Traffic Flows **Updated with Video and Diagrams**

posted Sep 1, 2018, 5:30 PM by Hillary Stasonis   [ updated Sep 4, 2018, 4:24 PM ]

The following traffic patterns have been updated as of September 4th, 2018. 

Traffic Flows with Opening of Anne Bradstreet Early Childhood Center (ABECC) 

Please take note of the traffic flows for the new Anne Bradstreet Early Childhood Center (ABECC), the Middle School, and Atkinson Elementary. We ask your patience as we work through these new patterns, especially at the new school. We have created a video that demonstrates the new pattern for the ABECC, and we will have plenty of staff on site to help direct traffic and to implement any changes that could improve flow. We thank you for your patience and welcome your input.

Atkinson Elementary - pick up and drop off will remain the same as it was at the end of last year. Cars and buses will enter through Phillips Brooks and will follow the directions of staff, then will proceed out Beacon Hill Rd. onto Mass. Ave.

Middle School
 - those vehicles (cars and buses) that were exiting out Beacon Hill or onto Rte. 125 at the end of last year will now all exit out onto Rte. 125. They must turn left at the top of the road leading up to the ABECC, then turn right onto Rte. 125. Exiting onto Rte. 125 will remain a Right Turn Only. Cars will still be able to exit out to Parker Street as well.

Anne Bradstreet Early Childhood Center (ABECC)
 - cars and buses will enter the Middle School from Main Street. Cars will drive to the right of the Middle School and then around the back to access the road up to the ABECC. Cars will be restricted to the right lane as they make their way up to the parking lot. Cars will then proceed around the outside of the parking lot and will follow directions from staff for drop off and pick up. They will then turn right out of the parking lot and exit onto Rte. 125 (Right Turn Only). Buses (and ONLY buses) will travel around the left of the Middle School and use the left lane heading up to the ABECC. They will discharge in the bus loop on the side of the building and then exit onto Rte. 125 (Right Turn Only). There will be no entry into the site from Rte. 125. Preschool parents are asked to not join the drop off cue in the morning until 8:35 because they will not be able to drop off until that time and joining the cue prior to 8:35 will slow down the drop off for Kindergarten students.
