Wareham High School students heard a non-traditional, powerful anti-bullying message on Monday, December 16, that had them nodding along with the beat.
The message was delivered by Fame or Juliet, a Lynn-based hip-hop group headlining the Music Motivates Me tour. The tour encourages students to chase and accomplish their goals.
In addition to bullying, Fame or Juliet’s songs take a stand against violence and emphasize the importance of education. The group encourages students to follow their dreams, to be kind to one another, and to make sure they don’t fall in with the wrong crowd.
The message particularly hit home for students because the members of Fame or Juliet are each just 19 years old — not much older than our high school students!

Did you see our students in the Wareham Village Association’s annual Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 14? We are happy to have been involved in this great community event!
Wareham Middle School students and staff get ready for the parade:
The holiday season tends to prompt us to think about gifts and giving.
We are bombarded with advertisements in newspapers and on television telling us why we need to buy this electronic device, that particular toy, or this expensive piece of jewelry.
It’s easy to get caught in the holiday shuffle. We all know that it’s important to remember the gifts we have already received: our family and friends, adequate shelter and food, access to a great public education.
Wareham Public Schools has received countless gifts this year. We are grateful for each one.
The gift of time. Volunteers – parents, guardians, and members of the community at large – have continued to help our school faculty and staff-members keep their classrooms and buildings running smoothly.
The gift of scholarships. Each year, the community donates hundreds of dollars to enrich our younger students’ learning experiences by sending them on field trips and funding enrollment into educational programs outside of the typical school day. Every year, thousands of dollars are donated to Wareham-based scholarship funds that help our high school graduates attend colleges and universities.
The gift of support and collaboration. Many have attended Town Meeting to support our schools and students this year. Thanks to voters and our town officials, we have been able to purchase much-needed textbooks and technology, complete building repairs, and continue to support our teachers in the classroom.
Many thanks to the Wareham community and to each and every one of our faculty members, staff, and students. Have a wonderful, safe holiday.
We are looking forward to all the great things 2014 is going to bring.

It’s Computer Science Education Week, and many of our teachers are joining the Code.org movement to get students involved in computer science and writing code.
Through free-of-charge tutorials provided by Code.org, even students in elementary school have participated in the organization’s Hour of Code — an hour during which students solely focus on learning about code.
Some Wareham classrooms used an iPad app in which they learned how to make a game with code. Others used programs available for desktop computers.
Here are some photos from the Hour of Code in Wareham Public Schools!
The Wareham Tigers — a Pop Warner team consisting almost entirely of Wareham Middle School Students — arrived in Disney World on Friday for the Pop Warner Super Bowl.
The community rallied — raising $50,000 in less than a week — to ensure the boys could make the trip.
After practice on Saturday morning, the players planned to hydrate and watch game footage. They take the field at 4 p.m. for Game 1.
WCTV will be airing highlights and additional coverage. For more information, visit warehamtv.org.
