Posted on 05/07/2018
Good morning, Wamsutta Families.  Our Color Run fundraiser will be after school next Friday May 11, and while the window for T-shirts and prizes has closed, students and families are still welcome to contribute $30 and run.  We will have a dunk tank, concessions, face-painting, and music.  It was a truly fun event over the past two years, and we hope to have good weather and see you there.  We are thankful for our students and families who have already raised funds for our school through this event.
Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  In backpacks today, we have a notice for our Someone Special Dance on June 8th and our rescheduled Diversity Potluck Dinner on June 13th.  Digital copies of both are in the attachments, as well as a notice for field hockey registration from SAGRA.
