Wamsutta Family Update 01/19/2018
Posted on 01/19/2018
Good afternoon, Wamsutta Families.
Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  A notice for our Blue Steam Ahead event on February 15th and our Bring Your Own Device permission slip went home with all students today.  The BYOD permission slip must be filled out completely for students to use their devices at school.  For your reference, I have attached a letter I sent in December outlining our expectations for the program.  This is a pilot designed to maximize the resources already owned by families to further their access to digital tools while at school.  They should be charged at home, locked in lockers while here, and used only when the teachers call for their use.  I hope to update everyone about the successes and challenges of this pilot in a month or so.  We also have attachments from SAGRA, NE Sports Village, and SMARTS this week.   
  1. Our annual basketball game is next Friday with doors opening at 6 PM.  We still have some tickets available (students can buy them at lunch) for $10.  We will sell them until we sell out.  If prior years are a guide, that would mean closing the box office on Tuesday or Wednesday next week.  The raffle tickets given to students to help fundraise for this event on January 8th should be returned (sold or not) on Wednesday of next week.  I hope to see everyone there.
  2. Midterm Trimester 2 progress reports are viewable in Aspen.
  3. If you are still collecting Box Tops (thank you) you should know they are due to the school on the Friday before February break.
Thank you as always for your time and attention.
