Wamsutta Family Update 03/08/2019
Posted on 03/08/2019

Good morning, Wamsutta families. 

Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  On paper this week, we have information about our Spring Picture day on March 21 and more information about our Trivia Night on March 27.  All students will be photographed on the 21st, if you wish to purchase any photos, you will need to fill out the form.  I believe our vendor, LifeTouch, has emailed you directly about it as well.  Digital notices include a message from the APL about programs and events coming up, and we also have our After School Schedule for T3 attached.  These activities begin Monday.  We also have very late notice about the Middle School Girls’ Volleyball Program.  Sign ups are this Sunday!  Please see attached for more information. 

  1. Also in the very late notice department, the opening of the SMARTS Show at the Fuller Craft Museum is this Sunday at 11.  This exhibit will showcase many of our WMS students’ work, as well as work from other middle schools from Attleboro and surrounding communities.  More information can be found here:    https://www.facebook.com/events/1925523617555350/ and they do have a blurb in there about weather in case it is bad.  I hope to see you there.
  2. Our PTO meeting will be Wednesday and you are invited.  I also hope you’ll consider joining our Craft Night on the 28th.  More info can be found here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wamsutta-middle-school-pto-fundraiser-tickets-57567337456
  3. Our Curriculum Calendar is up for March and can be found linked to on our website and here: http://bit.ly/2CsjPfc.  Again, our goal in giving you this information is so that you can see some of the big picture things about what your children are learning without getting lost in the nitty-gritty of the Aspen Gradebook, as well as provide you some information you can use to ask questions about students’ learning that will hopefully be conversation starters with them.
