CULTURE CONNECTION

The Culture Connection is a wonderful program designed to enrich the learning and core
instruction in the classroom. Culture Connection is sponsored by the HEPTSA and artfully
scheduled by Mrs. Nora Oquendo, a previous Placentino parent. We are lucky to have these
wonderful programs come to our school and put learning to life in first hand demonstrations,
music, dancing, and exhibits. This assembly occurs during the school day and is designed for
student audience participation only. You are welcome to connect with Mrs. Nora Oquendo, at
drno@comcast.net , if you are interested in volunteering your time to help support these experiences
for our children. Here are some up and coming events:

will parade twice, and children who are in the PM Kindergarten session will parade in the 
afternoon. Families are asked to remain outside the school house during the parade session for 
photo opportunities. The parade route will be entirely outside this school year!

SCHOOL COUNCIL MEETING

Our second School Council meeting will take place on October 15, 2014 at 3:30 in the 
Placentino Library. 

FOOD PANTRY DAY

This Thursday, October 16th, is Food Pantry Day at Placentino School. The Holliston Pantry 
Shelf (http://www.hollistonpantryshelf.org/index.html) supplies food free of charge to 
Holliston residents in need. The Pantry is different from other food pantries in several aspects. 
First, the Pantry is open five days a week all year. Furthermore, the Pantry allows clients to 
shop for their own food, a completely unique approach. Finally, the Pantry has no paid staff and 
relies on volunteers to run it. Therefore, all money received goes either toward buying food or 
maintaining the space for the Pantry. The Pantry relies entirely on private donations and receives 
no municipal, state, or federal support. Items most needed at the Pantry: Canned Soups, Peanut 
Butter, Canned Meats/Tuna, Snacks, Paper Towels, Toilet Paper. Students may bring 
donations to school which will be collected by the classroom teacher.
