Wamsutta Family Update 09/13/2019
Posted on 09/13/2019

Good afternoon, Wamsutta Families. 

BACKPACK ALERT AND DIGITAL NOTICES:  All students received notices about our Meadow Farms “Cookie Dough & More” fundraiser, a reminder about picture day, and Dental Services on paper today.  Attached are notices from the Youth Center, the Vietnam “Moving Wall” memorial, the 2nd annual Attleboro Opioid Symposium, and the AYBA.  I will be encouraging our students to make a visit to Highland Park to see the “Moving Wall” memorial over the announcements next week, and please know that Mr. Heal will be one of the panelists at the Opioid Symposium.

A few other items:

1.       PTO Fundraising Update:  Our sneaker drive will continue for another two weeks, and the Meadow Farms Fundraiser starts today and continues until October 8.  While the Meadow Farms stuff can be completed all on paper, you can also go online to https://shop.meadowfarms.com/ParticipantRegistration2016/FRPreRegister.asp and enter our school code – 1030565.  Then you just need to enter the “seller ID number”, which is located on the bottom left corner of the paper order form sent home in the packet today.  We hope those families that can will participate.  We highly recommend doing this online.

2.       As mentioned last week, Ms. Harney met with 5th grade students this week to demonstrate some instruments and see who might be interested in joining the band.  She also invited band members from last year to outline her plans.  5th grade families will hear more from her at Back To School Night about both her general music classes and the band, and we have scheduled our instrument rental night for October 3 at 6 PM.  Any band questions can be sent directly to her at sharney@attleboroschools.com.  We hope to grow our band, and, again, no experience is required.

3.       Planners not yet sold have been returned to the office.  Any student (even grade 8 students) who wish to buy one can get them directly from the office.

4.       Chromebooks will be here in the first few days of October!  At this point, I believe I will be passing out both information about the Chromebooks and getting parents to sign-off on the required paperwork at Back To School Night.  I hope to have this solidified in my next family update.

Dates to Remember:

·         Thursday, September 26th:  Back to School Night for families from 6-8 PM

·         Monday, September 30th:  School Picture Day

·         Thursday, October 3:  Instrument Rental Night at 6 PM

Thank you for your time.
