Wamsutta Family Update 09/27/2019
Posted on 09/30/2019

Good afternoon, Wamsutta Families.

Thank you to the many families who were able to join us last night.  I’d also like to thank the PTO for their assistance in helping make our Open House a successful one.

BACKPACK ALERT AND DIGITAL NOTICES:  Sign ups sheets for our Community Potluck are going home on paper today with all students.  We hope you will join us.  The digital notices are attached and include information from Attleboro Youth Soccer and the APL.

1.       5th Grade:  If we don’t have your Chromebook Sign Off, we can’t give your student a Chromebook on Wednesday.  I received many last night, but still need to collect about 75.  A copy of just the sign off is attached if you wish to print it out at home and send it in Monday, and a paper copy will go home Monday afternoon for any we do not receive by Monday morning.  If we do not have these forms in time for the Wednesday distribution, your student’s Chromebook delivery may be significantly delayed.

2.       If your students are interested in joining our band, Ms. Harney will be hosting our instrument rental night on Thursday at 6 PM.

3.       PTO Update 1:  Our sneaker drive has wrapped up.  Thank you to those who have helped out.  The Meadow Farms Fundraiser has started well and continues until October 8th.  We are over $3000 in sales and hope to do even better over the next weeks.  Again, while the Meadow Farms stuff can be completed all on paper, you can also go online here 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 two weeks ago. 

4.       Eight years ago, Wamsutta was lucky enough to begin an invaluable partnership with Sensata that continues today.  Sensata engineers volunteer their time to provide students with a hands-on, engaging opportunities to design and program robotics. The program will begin October 23rd and takes place on Wednesdays at 1:20 PM.  This program is for 5th and 6th graders only.  Applications will be available in science classes and offered to all 5th and 6th graders beginning October 1st.  Email me with any questions you may have.
