Douglas Primary School
Did you know that Sunday, Sept. 27th is a SUPER full moon?Supermoon was first coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, in 1979. He defined it as ‘a new or a full Moon that occurs when the Moon is at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in its orbit’. Because it's so close to Earth, a Super Full Moon looks about 7% bigger than an average full Moon.

Douglas Primary School Council
Cindy Socha, Principal
The School Council consists of a group of staff members, parents, and community members who voluntarily serve as members of a team to work collaboratively with the Principal to foster school improvement.
Membership on the School Council is open to any Primary staff member, parent, and/or community resident. If you are interested in serving, we welcome your participation! Please let Mrs. Socha know if you would like to serve.
The purpose of the School Council is to serve as a vehicle to foster strong school/home communication, and to assist the school principal in these four areas:
1. Identifying the educational needs of students attending the school
2. Adopting educational goals for the school that are consistent with local educational policies and statewide student performance standards
3. Formulating a school improvement plan for submission to the school committee
