Wamsutta Family Update 02/01/2019
Posted on 02/01/2019

Good morning, Wamsutta families.

Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  Just one item headed home on paper today, and it is for the 8th grade only.  More on that below.  We have two attachments this week as well:  The first is a notice for spring baseball from the AYBA, and the second is a notice for an Essay Contest sponsored by Sturdy Memorial Hospital.  The teachers will be discussing the essay contest with students over the next few days, but everything you would need for your student to enter the contest is included in the attachment.

1.       8th Grade:  The 9th Grade Course Offerings for next year at AHS will be distributed today.  Please look it over with your child.  If you or your student have any questions about this, please contact me.  The packet, along with the information presented at the mandatory welcome night on February 6 at 6 PM, should provide students and families the information they need to fill out the course request sheet (located at the end of the 9th Grade Course Offerings).  Students are expected to bring the completed course request sheets to school on February 13, when AHS Administration and Guidance staff come to WMS to assist students in putting their requests into Aspen for next year.

2.       Our voicemail went down for a brief time this week.  If you are wondering why a call has not been returned, this is probably why.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

3.       The Yearbook Club will be taking photos of after-school clubs the week of February 11.  If you want to make sure students are included in these pictures, please try to ensure your child's attendance.  I know this is no easy feat with the amounts of illnesses running around of late.
