Principal’s Corner!

March 30, 2015







On Friday, March 27, 2015 Latham had the pleasure of sending many members of our Educational Team to the annual MAAPS Conference held in Marlboro MA. Latham has been an attendee of this annual conference for many years. Our staff are always very enthusiastic about the opportunity to attend due to the vast options of topics the conference presents on. Funding for all attendees was provided by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

The day consisted of attending three sessions and networking with other schools in Massachusetts. Our staff enjoyed various sessions pertaining to Mathematics Standards, Yoga Practices for the Classroom, and Transition Strategies. Time was allotted for staff to mingle and check out many vendors that provided free resources and brochures about various educational topics. Some highlights were textbooks from Pearson and school supplies such as highlighters and pens. We were able to enjoy a keynote speech given by Dr. Fabrizio Mancinia aka Dr. Fab, about ways to lead a healthier lifestyle in order to obtain a healthier mind and ways to prioritize all the stressors in our lives. 

Overall our staff had a wonderful time and are looking forward to attending the 38th Annual Conference next year!
