The Jog-A-Thon is fast approaching!
Mark your calendars for Main Street’s Annual Jog-A-Thon Fundraiser, Friday, February 23!
Our annual Jog-a-thon is set for Friday, Feb. 23rd. Information about prizes, the timeline and pledge sheet will be sent home on Friday, Feb. 9th. Our school goal is $45,000, and your help in raising these much-needed funds is appreciated. These funds help pay for music, dance, technology, and other enrichment programs for all students at Main Street. Once again, we will be using 99pledges.com to manage the Jog-a-thon. Each student will have their own pledge page where they can track their progress in real time. Donation requests, including by credit card, can be sent to friends and family worldwide via e-mail and social media. Instead of jog-a-thon t-shirts, we will be showing our school spirit by wearing a color per grade level: Kinder – Purple, First – Orange, Second – Yellow,Third – Green, Fourth – Blue, and Fifth – Red.
It will be lots of fun! VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!
We can’t do this event without multiple volunteers. If you’re interested in helping with the jog-a-thon, please click the following link to sign up, VOLUNTEER or contact Jillian Holmberg at Jillian_Holmberg@yahoo.com.

On Friday, January 26, 20 of our 5th grade students participated in our extra-curricular academic activity, Invention Convention, under the leadership of Ms. Ilana Lowe. All of our participating students did an impressive job coming up with innovative inventions. Good luck to Reilly Kerko, Tyler Harway, Gabriella Gonzalez, Caleb Marchessault, Kevin Baskerville, Arie McNeil, Hailey Vicar, Chelsea Clayton, and Nicole Orlando who have been chosen to compete at the state level on April 14th in San Jose.
One area in which we are particularly focusing is creating a very positive atmosphere through events like our “Donut Bully” week held earlier this fall. If you haven’t had a chance to see our video recapping our anti bullying week, please check it out.
The Main Street Way, with its character traits of being respectful, responsible, honest and caring, is the common lens through which our behavior interventions are employed. We recently asked our students to tell us what they thought The Main Street Way was; and almost without exception, they were able to name the traits. Please watch our fun video it will put a smile on your face!
Computer Lab Hours Before and After School We are fortunate to have our computer lab open before and after school so students can work on homework and use the computers to hone their math, literacy, and computer skills. A credentialed teacher, Ms. Lori Kearney, facilitates the lab. Multiple academic programs, as well as typing tutorials and programming sites are available to students in Kindergarten through 5th grades. Students are expected to work quietly while in the computer lab. Lab Hours are: Before School on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 7:45 to 8:30 and After School on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 2:50 to 3:45.
