It’s Spring Break, but the activity at Wareham Public Schools hasn’t slowed down.
Our athletes are competing in tennis, track, softball, and baseball throughout the week. Want to catch a game or a meet? Check out the schedule at SouthCoastConference.org!
Our Office of Beyond School Time, which provides experiences and programming for students and families in the hours and weeks that students are not in school, has also been quite busy: Thanks to grant-funding and generous donations from our neighbors throughout the Wareham community and beyond, we are able to provide free lunches for children from Tuesday through Friday during Spring Break.
Lunches are offered from 12 to 1 p.m. at Wareham Middle School, the Woods at Wareham apartments off of Swifts Beach Road, and at the Onset Band Shell.
In just our first two days, we gave out 207 lunches! I had a wonderful time handing out the bags at the Band Shell in Onset. It was so nice to see so many smiling faces!
Thank you very much to everyone who made this possible for our children.
We are excited to have our students return to school on April 28. The rest of the school year is going to fly by! Here are just a few things that are coming up.
MCAS testing in May: We will provide a full spring MCAS exam schedule on the warehamps.org homepage. Students should make sure to eat a good breakfast and get a full night’s rest before the tests!
May 6 is National Teacher Day: I can’t say it enough: Thank you, our teachers, every day, for all that you do to ensure our Wareham Public Schools students get an excellent, competitive, 21st-Century education.
Kindergarten Information Night: Will you have a kindergartner in Wareham schools next year? An informational meeting will be held Thursday, May 15, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Decas Elementary, located at 760 Main Street.
I hope everyone has a safe, enjoyable remainder of Spring Break. See you on Monday!
