Epping Elementary School would like to say “Thank you!” to veterans by inviting you to a free lunch at our school during Veterans Day week. This is a very informal event with veterans seated at the tables with students. Any veteran who attends will be recognized and introduced to all the students and thanked for his or her service.
Lunch times are:
- 11:20 to 11:45 for grades 4 & 5
- 11:50 to 12:15 for grades 2 & 3
- 12:20 to 12:45 for kindergarten
- 12:25 to 12:50 for grade 1
You don’t have to have children, grandchildren or other relatives currently attending Epping Elementary School. If you are a veteran, you are invited.
If you plan to attend, please call the school at 679-8018 or send in a note with a student relative or by mail, telling us what lunch you plan to attend. Please note that school is closed on November 10th.
Thank you for your service to our country.

The staff and students at the Middle School have been busy! As we move from the end of summer to fall, we are learning our students’ names and understanding new routines and procedures with a new grade level team of teachers. Middle school activities are in gear. Here is a snapshot of what we have been up to.
Penny Wars was a resounding success! Grade 6 was our winner! Our PRIDE Assembly on October 7th was a celebration of effort and healthy competition to support our school. Earnings from this fundraiser were split equally between the grades to become a dedicated source of funds to support Nature’s Classroom, the DC Trip and other grade level specific activities.

Digital Citizenship: Appropriate. Responsible. Safe. During unified arts classes, students are exploring how to handle social media and technology.
Grade 7 was at Nature’s Classroom in Groton, Massachusetts from October 10th to 13th. At Nature’s Classroom, students learned to think “outside of the books.” Throughout their four-day experience, students participated in activities to develop personal responsibility, nurture personal growth and social awareness.
