Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 6 Students,

We hope you are having a relaxing and enjoyable summer! Here at Chenery we are busy getting ready for a wonderful school year. We are excited to get started connecting, teaching and learning together!

The Grade 6 teams for this year are as follows:




Ms. Soares, ELA
Mr. Pillone, Science
Mr. Walsh, SS
Ms. Kaushik, Math
Ms. Lanoix, ELA
Ms. Hutchinson, Science
Ms. Panzarella, SS

This year’s placement represents our best effort at creating classes that are well-balanced with groups of children who can work together, educationally, and socially. Creating balanced classes is no easy task. It requires a considerable amount of time, energy, and thought by many staff members to consider hundreds of specific requests. In meetings spread out over months, many factors are considered. We kept our promise to maintain parent input as a central part of the placement process because it is our combined thinking that ultimately results in class lists that benefit all students. Now that assignments have been made, they are considered final.

For any student who is new to the district, you may be receiving your team information in the next several days.

The first day of school for students will be Wednesday, September 7, 2022. When students arrive at school, all 6th grade students should enter either the Washington Street or parking lot entrance and report to the auditorium.

Please take note that school begins at 7:45am. Attendance will be taken at the start of every learning period throughout the school day.

This will be a wonderful year and we are looking forward to welcoming you to the Chenery community! If we can be of any assistance to you or your children please contact either of us at 617-993-5800. Our offices are always open to you.
