    Virtual Kindergarten Round-Up

    Thank you to our families who attended our Virtual Kindergarten Round-Up. Here’s the Pittsfield Kindergarten Round Up 2021-22 slide deck.


    Usually, when October is upon us we are planning for our school's biggest fundraiser -- the Fun Run. We had intended to kick off the fundraising program the week of October 4, but the pivot to virtual school upended our plans.

    After discussing our options, considering the current state of COVID, and our desire to make sure as many kiddos as possible can participate, we've made the decision to postpone the Fun Run until the spring.

    Our hope is that by spring, a large portion of our student population will be vaccinated, and we will be able to bring back some of the fun energy and activities that we've done in the past to go along with the run itself.

    Our plan now is to kick-off the Fun Run program the week after Spring Break and boot the winter doldrums aside with some outdoor activity, and the reappearance of everyone's favorite (kind of creepy) unicorn, Sprinkles. The run itself will take place the last week of April or first week of May.

    Please reach out to Dawn Keech ( if you have any questions. And if you have a particular passion for fundraising and organizing a group of children running around an outdoor space, let her know -- she could use an extra person or two to help out!


    The PTO strives to meet the needs of our families. We have available funds to provide assistance with groceries and gasoline and feel free to inquire about other necessities. Please contact Melita Alston at for more information.

    The Pittsfield School Garden is ready to offer optional weekly classes to students in grades 1-5 during their recess time. We will explore science, math, art, history, and language concepts in the garden while having fun and learning about food cultivation.

    Our objectives are to:
    -Reinforce classroom learning objectives.
    -Expand student understanding of ecology and food cultivation
    -Celebrate the diverse composition of our school
    -Connect families
    -Increase recognition of fresh foods
    -Promote a sense of pride in what we can do together
