Wamsutta Family Update 10/05/2018
Posted on 10/05/2018
Good afternoon, Wamsutta families.
Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  In backpacks this week, we have a flyer from our PTO Holiday Fair and Bake Sale taking place on Saturday, December 1st.  We are looking for both volunteers and vendors.  All the information on who to contact will be on the flyer.  We also have a digital notice attached for Open Lab Night at BSU on October 24th.  Open Lab Night features hands–on activities and demonstrations in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, geography and astronomy. The new BSU maker space will also be open for tours and demonstrations.  Students who went last year reported it as a wonderful event.  More information is in the attachment.
In other news:
1.       Our next PTO meeting is Tuesday the 9th, and this is the same day that online and paper orders for our Cookie Dough and More fundraiser are due.  Please support this effort if you can
2.       Our After-School Activities and Late Bus service will begin on Tuesday, October 9th.  Please remind your children that they must sign-up for both the activity (even if they had to sign up already for limited enrollment clubs previously) and the bus, should they use it, in homeroom the day of the activity.  The late bus stops are attached.  Please note that they may be different than your child’s regular afternoon stop.
3.       Our Curriculum Calendar is up and running for September and October and can be found here:  http://bit.ly/2CsjPfc.  The idea behind it is to provide a brief breakdown of what is going on in each grade level and content area to give families the big picture of the things our students are working on.  We hope to provide more specifics for our families who wish to ask their students “What did you work on in school today?” and don’t get much of a response.  We always appreciate family support for our curricula and asking your children some of the essential questions from September and October could give you an informal, but important measure of what your child is learning.  We’ll post it on the website and I’ll include a reminder here when the next month is posted.     
UPCOMING DATES:
Monday, October 8th:  No School
Tuesday, October 9th:  PTO Meeting at 6:30
Friday, October 12th:  Mid-Trimester Progress Reports Available in Aspen (more info next week)
 
Thank you as always for your time and attention.
