The Kilmer Lower School was one of eleven schools that participated, represented by 3rd grader Ariana Centeno.
A friendly reminder from Nurse Price:
As the cold weather approaches, we begin many life care talks with our children , some of which include:
Cough etiquette: cover your cough with the inside of your elbow.For a fever of 100.5, stay home until you are 24 hours fever free!
Keep your hands away from your face, nose lips area!
In this cold weather, wear a hat but~~ never share it. Please check you children every friday or more frequently for signs of lice.
Please call if I can be of any help to you!

Starting November 10th there will be BLS High School students coming to the Kilmer Upper School to coach 6th grade students on their writing projects. This will take place every 2nd Tuesday of the month from 3:30 to 4:30. Also we are still accepting students into the “Debate Mate USA” program for middle school. This is an after-school program for students where trained college students from the Boston area lead weekly after-school debate clubs, which combine speaking and listening activities and instruction in parliamentary debate. The program runs for 16 weeks after school and is free to our students. There are three preliminary competitions leading up to the finale, which is held on April 29th
at Harvard. Parents, please urge your students to take advantage of this opportunity. For more info www.Debatemate.com
