  • Greenville Library Summer Reading Program
  • East Smithfield Library Summer Reading Program
  • Summer Bridge Activities Books (Available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon)
Just have your child document his/her accomplishments and share this with me when we return to school.  Students participating will be eligible to enjoy a "Movie & Snack with Mrs. Pleau" on September 22nd, from 3:30 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.

Have fun with this!!!

McCabe's End of the School Year

posted Jun 18, 2017, 6:06 AM by Catherine Pleau   [ updated Jun 18, 2017, 8:06 AM ]

Thank you teachers, staff, students, families, and community members!  McCabe had a great school year and a wonderful last month of school!  Our Alzheimer's, Differing Abilities, and Reading Weeks were all so well planned (teachers, staff, and parents), received, and participated in by all of the McCabe family!  We were also very happy to receive a surprise visit from Mr. Alan Shawn Feinstein!

Our Talent Show, Preschool, and Kindergarten Programs were a delight!  Fifth Grade's DARE and Growing Greatness Programs were very moving....and our last Town Meeting, a special tribute to many.

Many thanks to all of you: Please know that we could not do what we do without your selfless volunteering, consistent support, and continued love!

Gratefully,
Cathy 


Congratulations, McCabe!!!

Congratulations to McCabe's third, fourth, and fifth grade students for their great job with PARCC and NECAP testing!  Many thanks also to our faculty, staff, families, and "other students" for their support.  The McCabe Family truly supported one another.
