The integrated preschool program is open to all children who reside in Haverhill. Classrooms include children with special needs as well as students who are typically developing.
Teams of teachers, assistants and therapists are always providing motivating, developmentally appropriate learning experiences for all students. The curriculum is challenging and based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. We believe that an inclusive education provides all children with the opportunity to learn with and from each other.
Applicants for our preschool classrooms must be at least 3 years old by August 31. Students attend school for 2 ½ hours a day Monday through Thursday. The morning session runs from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. and the afternoon session runs from 12:45 – 3:15 p.m. For more information, please contact the office at (978) 374-3484

OT / PT Home Exercise Programs
Moody School is a unique program in many ways. Our classrooms are staffed with Special Education Teachers who are able to meet the individual needs of the students through curriculum as well as through therapeutic techniques that are initialized and modeled by the therapists. We are staffed with full time Physical and Occupational Therapists who provide direct and consultative services to many students. In an attempt to partner with the teaching staff and the parents of all Moody School students, the therapists will send home as well as post a bi-weekly activity. We hope that you find these activities enjoyable and beneficial to your child’s overall development.

Message from the Principal
September 20, 2017
Greeting Moody preschool families. A warm welcome to you all and I hope that the school year is off to a great start for you and your family. It seems as though everyone has made a smooth transition. Students have been learning the routines and listening to wonderful stories. I have enjoyed getting to know the children and parents. I’m the building Principal for the district’s early childhood schools including Moody Preschool. If you have any questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or myself a call.
You may call the school and leave a message for me with Mrs. Lisa Collins, the Principal Clerk. Mrs. Lynne Murray is the Head Teacher at Moody School and she is working closely with me to support the students and staff. If you are unable to reach me, you may contact Mrs. Murray. Mrs. Heather Azzarito is our building nurse and you may contact her if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s health.
Over the next two months, students will explore a fall/autumn theme on apples and pumpkins including lessons on leaves and trees. Our school goal is to create an educational partnership with you and your child that will foster a passion for learning. It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. We will post classroom activities and announcements on the school web page. Whether you are a classroom volunteer or a member of the PTO, you are encouraged to be involved. Through our partnership, the staff and I will ensure that our common goal is to have your son/daughter reach his/her full potential.

- Check out the 2017-2018 district calendar for school holidays and vacations.
- Mark important dates such as Open House, Parent/Teacher conferences and school holiday/vacations on a family calendar.
- Start a folder for school newsletters/calendars and PTO notices/events.
A student information sheet will be sent home during the first week of school. Please update school emergency contact and health information.
The following is a list of school supplies that your child will need:
- Sturdy lunch box for snack
- 2 pocket folder
Please be sure to label them with your child’s name.
Student drop off: Staff will greet parents in a designated area outside at 8:50 a.m. for the morning session and 12:40 p.m. for the afternoon session. Please make every effort to arrive on time so your child receives a full day of school. Every day counts! Poor attendance can keep children from reaching academic goals.

Science Resource Center
The Moody School is working to create a science resource center for students. This will help enhance our state science curriculum.
If you have a student here at the Moody Preschool and / or work for a company that is involved with science, we are hoping to partner up in order to provide the best education possible for our students now and in the future.
Please contact us at (978) 374-3459 if you are interested in learning more.
As always, we appreciate your continued support!
WE’RE OFF TO A GREAT START!!!!
Many THANKS to all that helped make this possible.
