Dear Hubbell Families:

There is Something to Bark About at Hubbell School! Our reading interventionist, Lisa Ayotte, was awarded funding this fall, from the Bristol Education Foundation, for her mini-grant, entitled PAWS (PAUSE) FOR READING.

The grant is designed to encourage our students to take some extra time, PAUSE, and dig deep into extra reading time outside the school day.Students obtain a Hound template from their classroom teacher, and write a book summary.So far over 85 students have completed a “PAWESOME” book template, which are posted proudly in our main lobby, and are now spilling over onto our art display bulletin boards.We are so proud of the efforts that our students are putting into this special project as they celebrate the love of reading and writing!Each week we have a few students share their awesome, (PAWESOME, as we like to brag) book reflections!Many students have even finished more than one and keep coming back to get more!Way to go boys and girls!We appreciate the support that families are offering at home for this “extra” reading effort. The “Paws (Pause) for Reading” program will continue through June, so keep up the great work Hubbell Hounds!

This week our 4th and 5th grade students celebrated their love of music at our winter performance at Bristol Eastern High School.Mrs. Harhay and Mr. Tamburro led our students in numerous pieces much to the delight of Hubbell families and friends.But it takes a village!We have other music staff at Hubbell School, including Allison Kelly and Kelle Barrieau, that instruct various grade level sections, and our 4th and 5th grade teachers are always present to support the students in their musical endeavors!
