Thank you to our students, staff, and families who came out for our Comedy and Magic Night last week. It was our first attempt at this, and we hope to do more things like this in the future – not a fundraiser per se but just a fun night out for families. We are in debt to our PTO volunteers for making it happen.

Good morning, Wamsutta families. I’d like to start by thanking the families who were able to participate in our Potluck Dinner last night. Although a small event, by all accounts it was a wonderful one. We’ll try again in a few months and see if we can’t get a greater percentage of families to participate to continue to build positive relationships within the WMS community.

Good morning, Wamsutta families. Backpack Alert and Digital Notices: Nothing is going home on paper today, but I have attached our sign-up sheet for our Multi-Cultural/Community Potluck Dinner on November 29th. Right now, sign-ups are very slow (in retrospect, we may have picked a bad date) and if we don’t get more participation by Monday, we may have to reschedule and try again. If you are interested in joining us, please get this form back to your child’s homeroom teacher by Monday. I’ll update Monday afternoon to let people know if we are going forward or rescheduling.

Despite moments where we thought we were in the clear, we are still struggling with our phone system. It should be repaired soon, but please bear with us. Any calls for sick/absent students can be emailed to me at jconnor@attleboroschools.com. Any other concerns can be emailed to me as well and I can get the information where it needs to go. We are hoping again that this will be resolved today, and please forgive us for any voicemail messages we may have missed.

Backpack Alert and Digital Notices: Two papers are going home in backpacks. The first is the Picture Day packet with information for the pictures to be taken on Wednesday. You may have received an email from Lifetouch about it already. Ordering can be done online or through the order form distributed today. Also going home is a letter about our Bring Your Own Device program, with a form you need to fill out if you want your child to use their device during the school day. While all the details are in the letter, which is attached here as well, the short story is that if you have a device at home (with a keyboard is strongly preferred) your student can use it at the teacher’s discretion during the school day. Also attached is the agenda for our Curriculum Night and Open House.
