Dewing Students to get “High Five” Friday morning from Tewksbury Police Officers!

Dear Dewing Families:
Tomorrow morning, as buses and vans and students arrive at school, there will be at least two members of the Tewksbury Police Department outside to say good morning and to offer each child an official “high five.”  Just one more way our community protectors bring a friendly face to children, families and schools.  (btw, if you’re here and want to “high five” an officer, they’ll be happy to say good morning to you, too!)

DEWING afternoon activities canceled today (3/7/18)

Dear Dewing Families:
Due to the predicted inclement weather all school activities, including afternoon help sessions with classroom teachers and Academic Support Club are canceled.
Please contact Mrs.Wallace (  or Mrs. Jennings ( at our front office via email only if there are any changes to your child’s transportation plan.  In your email, please include your child’s full name, classroom teacher, bus/pick up plan, and the full name of the adult dismissing your child.  Reminder – any adults picking up children will need a picture ID.
The Extended Day Program will be closing at 4:00 pm this afternoon.  All families whose children attended Extended Day should have received an email from Maura Rauseo.

Sofia Rossetti Dewing Principal for the Day

Dewing Elementary School‘s Principal for December 18th was Miss Sofia Rossetti.
Thanks to her parents’ donation to the Tewksbury Education Foundation (with a silent auction bid), Sofia led the school’s morning announcements, visited classrooms, invited two friends and her brother to lunch in the office, introduced Ms. Bridgford at the opening of our school music concert (parent concerts are Tuesday), delivered school supplies to teachers, greeted friends, teachers and students in the hallway, and led dismissal. She decided that the principal’s walkie talkie was a bit heavy after a while and gave it to her assistant (me) to hold. She was gracious, kind, and smart.   Nicely done, Miss Sofia!

World Kindness Day – November 13

Kindness Day isn’t just about adopting all the children from your local orphanage – it’s about the little gestures of kindness too. Helping others can restore a sense of humanity, not to mention giving you that warm fuzzy glow inside.

Kindness Day was born when a collection of humanitarian groups came together on November 13, 1997 and made a “Declaration of Kindness”. Likewise, on Kindness Day everyone is encouraged to make a similar declaration. Donating books, food or clothes to your local community is a great way to celebrate. However, pledging to commit just one act of kindness is no less worthwhile: hold the door open for a stranger, compliment your neighbour on their collection of garden gnomes, let your partner have control of the TV remote for the evening.

However you decide to celebrate remember that the best thing about Kindness Day is that it doesn’t cost a thing!
