Wamsutta Family Update 06/07/2018
Posted on 06/07/2018
Good afternoon, Wamsutta Families.  I am off on the 8th grade field trip tomorrow, so this is a day early this week.  Our time left in the school year is brief, as is this update:
Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  A notice from the Attleboro White Hawks goes home with all students on paper tomorrow.  Our digital attachment concerns the summer Humanities and STEAM programs noted immediately below.
  1. This is second notice for this:  During the summer of 2018, students who are currently in grades 5-7 will have the opportunity to sign up and participate in district Humanities and STEAM programs.  These grant-funded, FREE programs are designed to engage APS students in rich, appealing, project-based learning opportunities.  There is still space available, although it is limited.  Slots will be filled in the order in which the completed permission slips arrive. There is a minimum enrollment needed of 10 students for each program to run and a maximum enrollment of 15 or 20 students, depending on the program.  Please send in the completed and signed permission slip to your child's school no later than Monday, June 11, 2018.  Transportation is not provided. Parents/guardians will need to transport their children to and from the program location. A confirmation letter and student information sheet will be mailed to your house the week of June 18, 2018.  If your child does not receive a confirmation letter, he/she cannot attend the program.
  2. June 29th is the deadline for Fee For Service busing.  There is only one evening session left available on Tuesday, June 19 from 5-7 PM.   Transportation is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-12 AM and 1-3 PM for the whole month of June and also on Friday, June 29 from 9-12 and 1-3 as this is the last day to register. Applications after June 29th will not be processed until after September 17th.
  3. Inhalers and Epi-pens will be sent home with students on June 20th. If you wish to pick these items up instead, please call our nurse, Robin Deshowitz, at 223.1544 before June 20th.
