Bagnall Children's Garden

The Bagnall Children's Garden was featured in the February 2013 edition of MTA Today, a publication of the Massachusetts Teachers' Association. Last year, the MTA awarded the Bagnall School a $5,000 grant to support expansion of the Bagnall Children's Garden as part of the Farm to School program. Soon, our students wil be tilling the soil again! Enjoy the article.

A few highlights from the 1st graders planting bulbs!


Student Halloween Costumes

To help the students have some fun this Halloween, we are allowing students to wear simple costumes. These costumes must adhere to the following:

  • Teachers have the final say if their class is allowed to change into their costumes.
  • No masks or face paint. Nothing that hides the students face or head. 
  • No weapons or accessories (toy knives,toy guns, etc.)
  • Costumes must be worn over normal clothing
  • Students may change into their costumes AFTER their lunch period. We are going to start the day with our usual routines.
  •  Costumes may not demean any race, religion, nationality, handicapped condition or gender. 
  • Shoes must be worn.
  • Costume should not depict gangs or horror characters, or be scary


Parent's please check you child's costume before they come to school.

First Grade Bulb Planting

The first grade students planted some of the 750 donated bulbs today at the school. The students along with 20 parent volunteers helped the Bagnall Beautification Club prepare the school for an amazing show of color next spring. Teachers Cathy Bevelaqua and Nancy Finnegan are the founding members of the Bagnall Beautification Club (BBC) and have created this club to create a beautiful learning space in and around our school. 

Their efforts include painting the safety zone curbs in the circle, purchasing 30 mums for the circle, weeding and pruning trees in and around the school, and decorating the grounds for the seasons.

The bulbs were all donated by the first grade parents, who then came out to help plant them.

We are anxious for spring when the campus will BURST with color!!
