Wamsutta Family Update 11/16/2018
Posted on 11/16/2018

 

 

Good morning, Wamsutta families. 

Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  Nothing on paper went home today.  Attached I have information from Attleboro Youth Soccer’s spring program.

  1. Our PTO was pleased to announce a $5,000 profit for WMS from our Fall Cookie Dough Fundraiser.  These monies support all our students directly, and we really rely on these fundraisers to provide things like technology and field trips for all our kids.  On behalf of the PTO and the students, thank you so much for participating.  Pickup begins at 4 PM on Monday in our cafeteria.  Should you be unable to pick up your goodies and can’t get anyone to pick them up for you, please contact me.
  2. We are continuing our annual can drive to benefit the Hebron Food Pantry.  Cans will be collected in homerooms through December 6th.  Mr. Duquette and the student council have arranged prizes for the homerooms that collect the most.  On behalf of the Hebron Food Pantry, we thank you for your participation in advance.  If we get to 1000 cans, the Feinstein foundation will donate $1,000 to our school.  We have achieved this goal in years past and hope to again.
  3. 3.Mr. Runey from AHS will alert 7th and 8th grade families when the new date for Blue Pride Night is chosen.  It will likely be a few months.
  4. Afternoon and evening parent conferences are coming up in December.  On Friday, November 30th, parent conference sign-up sheets will be distributed to all students.
  5. If you are a business owner and want to help promote your business and assist us in lowering the price for all yearbooks, you can buy ad space in the yearbook.  Attached is information about rates and contact people to speak to if you are interested.  This is a first for our yearbook (since my arrival as Principal at least) and we hope it assists us in keeping the yearbook truly affordable for all families.
