We are so excited to invite all elementary families and friends to our 2017-18 ES Winter Projects Fair and Breakfast on Thursday, March 1 from 8:00am-11:00am, in the elementary wing. The children have been busy getting their projects and checklists ready for you, and are so proud to show you all that they have learned during the winter months in their classrooms.
Elementary School (K-4)
If you are looking for an enriching environment where your child can be guided and encouraged to discover his or her unique social, emotional, and cognitive potential while experiencing the importance of community, then Rectory is the school for YOUR child!
Rectory's safe and nurturing environment enables all children to feel valued and empowered. As a result, they are active thinkers and learners who give their very best by exercising their mind, body, and spirit. Our beautiful new elementary wing was designed to enhance our educational vision. Students can work independently or collaborate with their peers in classrooms, hallways, and gathering spaces--both inside and outside. Families are always welcome and very involved in their children’s experiences, which leads to success and inspires a love of learning—the heart of our philosophy!
~Mrs. Maria Carpenter, Director of Elementary

The Elementary School parents help organize after school activities to enjoy each others company outside the classroom. Building a sense of community is a central part of our vision at Rectory, as we believe that our children will thrive when we behave with understanding, kindness, compassion, and the belief that we share responsibility for one other's well-being.
This Fall, the grade 2-3 classroom studied Habitats as their science theme and to connect to their learning, Ms. Coren and Mr. Williamson planned a field trip to the Harvard Museum of Natural History, in Cambridge, MA.
This year's MLK Day was embraced by the elementary community with the intent to teach our children that although they are little, they have the power to share kindness and make the world a better place.
During the month of December, the children in the grade 2-3 class were honored to share their classroom with eight wonderful mentors from Pomfret School's Project Pomfret. Click to read more about their shared experiences.
