Practical Strategies to Help Bright Kids Just Get Stuff Done Already!

Dr. Aimee Yermish, a clinical psychologist and educational therapist specializing in giftedness and multiple exceptionality, will be discussing ways to help your student excel.

When: Thu, Feb 8, 2018, 7:00 PM EST

Where: Ephraim Curtis Middle School in the auditorium, 22 Pratts Mill Rd., Sudbury. Please enter the school through the side doors.

This presentation is FREE and open to the public. RSVP is suggested, but not required.
Lots of kids (and adults) seem to spend their lives in a fog of forgotten assignments, lost possessions, and crumpled paper. Most of the interventions suggested for helping these “absent-minded professors” learn to be skilled at the complex work of school and life involve trying to coerce or reward them into compliance. However, they don’t usually like to play those games, and they will often do their best to lawyer, skate, and slippery-fish their way around them. This can be frustrating and exhausting for everyone, and does not set them up to move towards independence in adulthood. So, what does work? I’ll present some basic principles for how to think things through, and then we will move to a live consultation model. Bring your specific struggles, and and we’ll talk about how to apply acollaborative, executive functioning, life-hacking, engineering lens to find effective and durable solutions. Topics to be addressed will likely include keeping track of materials,managing time, remembering tasks and deadlines, creating time and space for homework, getting schoolwork done well and on time, and the like.

Aimee Yermish, Psy.D. ( is a clinical psychologist and educational therapist. She provides consultation, therapy, and neuropsychological assessment, primarily for clients who manifest giftedness or multiple exceptionality. Drawing on her analytical background as a scientist and practical background as a teacher, she focuses on building self-understanding, self-regulation, and range of choice in life. Her book on executive functioning coaching for smart people, “If You’re So Smart…” is in progress with Great Potential Press.

Haunted Haynes Committee Needs Volunteers!

Posted on: January 22nd, 2018 by webmaster
It’s not too early to mark your calendars for the first annual “Haunted Haynes,” coming this October! Loring and Nixon both hold similar events (“Monster Mash”) and Noyes does the “Spooktacular.”  We thought it was time to bring such a fun community event to Haynes, and provide our kids the chance to develop a new tradition and create positive memories.
The Haunted Haynes Committee has been busy gathering information from the other elementary school coordinators to get ideas about how to run this event. So far, we tentatively have the following planned: a dance in the gymnasium (children are encouraged to wear their costumes), storytelling in the library, a craft room, and a “Creepy Cafe” in the cafeteria where pizza and salad will be served.
We will need several parent volunteers to ensure this night runs smoothly. More details to come! Please consider volunteering when the time comes. It’s our hope “Haunted Haynes” becomes an annual event that our kids look forward to year after year!
Thanks and look for sign-ups in the coming months!
Best wishes,
The Haunted Haynes Committee

Classroom Wish Lists

Posted on: December 4th, 2017 by webmaster

Looking to donate to your child’s classroom? Located at the front office is a Teacher Wish List Binder. Teacher’s write down what they need/want (such as pencils, masking tape, dry erase boards, etc). A parent can either stop by Haynes or call Nancy Carbutt to find out what is wished for, then immediately cross off items that will be purchased so duplicates won’t be bought. This is a great way to donate!

‘Tis the Season to Thank our Teachers!

Posted on: November 27th, 2017 by webmaster

ACE Awards (Appreciation of Champions in Education Awards) give you a way to thank an educator that you appreciate, while also encouraging Sudbury and Lincoln-Sudbury teachers to unleash their ingenuity and drive.

 Looking for a meaningful way to appreciate and honor an educator?

  • Are you grateful for the way an educator has connected with your child?
  • Are moved by the way a teacher handled a difficult situation?
  • Did a specialist’s creativity spark inspiration for someone in your family?
  • Did an educator pour his/her time and self into a project that impacted a child in your life?
  • Is your child’s class looking for a unique way to say thank you?
  • Do you simply want to say, “Thank you!” to an educator?

When you give an ACE Award, your star educator will receive a certificate of honor and will be publicly acknowledged at school as well as on SERF’s website.  Your donation will support all Sudbury educators (K-12) seeking funds for innovative and enriching projects.

Donations for ACE Awards are tax deductible and accepted all year.  Those received by December 15th will honor your Champion in Education before the December break.
