Wamsutta Family Update 01/24/2020
Posted on 01/24/2020

Good afternoon, Wamsutta Families.  A short update this week.  Nothing is going home on paper and we have no digital notices.

 

Other items:

1.       Student Vs. Faculty Basketball Update:  Admission tickets to attend the basketball game on 1.31 will continue to be on sale when lunches resume Monday.  We are pretty close to selling out.  We hope to see you there next Friday.

2.       On Tuesday, the Jr. Conservation Commissioner Program will begin for 5th graders.  We are fortunate to partner with Mass Audubon, Oak Knoll Sanctuary, and the Attleboro Conservation Commission to provide this hands-on learning opportunity for yet another year.  We owe a special thanks to the 5th grade team for pursuing grant funding so we can keep this program going.

3.       As part of the 8th graders beginning of course selection, the AHS Band and Chorus will be by to give the 8th graders a look at the opportunities available to them at AHS.

4.       Welcome Night for the Class of 2024 starts at 6 PM at AHS Thursday and is mandatory.  Blue Pride starts at 6:30 and we hope the 7th graders join us then.  7th and 8th grade families should be receiving notices about this from Mr. Runey.  If you aren’t please let me know.

5.       The PTO, along with the generosity of Bliss Dairy, will be hosting an ice cream sundae celebration on February 7.  If your child has any dietary restrictions that you are concerned about, just let me know.  There are never any nuts, and we have lactose-free options available as well. 

6.       SECOND NOTICE:  8th Grade Yearbook Offer from Mr. Duquette:  8th grade families are offered a chance to show your graduating 8th grader how VERY MUCH you appreciate them & show them how proud you are of them!  Our school is offering 8th grade parents the chance to CREATE & purchase your student’s very own custom yearbook ad to be included in their book this year.  You can create the ads online at the link below:  http://www.jostens.com/apps/jcom/router.mvc?code=YRBK&affiliateId=1324416.  The creation process is very simple and straight-forward.  Just upload your images, choose a template, place the images and type in your copy.  All orders must be submitted by January 31st.
