Wamsutta Family Update 03/22/2019
Posted on 03/22/2019

Good morning, Wamsutta families.  I have a brief email for you this week.

Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  On paper this week, we have information going home to all students about fee for service busing.  You should have already received a separate email about it, and please let me know if you haven’t.  For 5th graders, we have information on Camp Invention going home today.  Attached you will also find information about Flag Football, and a last chance at registering for our Girls’ Middle School Volleyball program.

1.       Our Trivia Night is this Wednesday.  We have about 13 or so teams already, but there’s room for more, and the flyer is attached.  The cost of admission is 2 canned good per person, to benefit the National Jr. Honor Society’s community service work.  Please consider joining us.

2.       It will be a busy week for our 5th graders next week.  In addition to preparing for MCAS, they will be having their Step Challenge Rally on Wednesday and the Choose H20 Launch on Thursday.  Both programs are designed to support students in making healthy choices.

3.       At the request of students, Ms. Sarcione has volunteered her time to host a new club here at WMS.  Next Tuesday March 26th, the Interfaith Club will be holding its’ first meeting in Room 106 after school.  The Interfaith Club will provide the opportunity for students to meet with others of different belief systems and to discuss and explore various faith-based topics.  All 7th and 8th graders are welcome.  Questions about the club can be directed to csarcione@attleboroschools.com.
