SUPERINTENDENT’S BLOG: Behind the Scenes – A Bustling Summer Vacation

Have you ever wondered what happens in a school district after the students leave and summer begins? While it’s certainly a different hustle-and-bustle than during the school year, there is a lot going on here in Wareham Public Schools!

Our faculty and staff began readying for the first day of school nearly as soon as the final school bells rang in June.

We’re tackling scheduling, ensuring we have adequate supplies, and conducting professional development with our teachers. Our custodians are emptying classrooms, scrubbing everything, waxing the floors, and making it all sparkle for incoming students, faculty, and staff.

We are excited to note that our CARE Program, which is made possible through grant-funding, has more than 300 students enrolled this summer. These students are expanding upon the concepts they have learned during the school year through project-based activities such as robotics, engineering, woodworking, and drama.

It is wonderful to have the CARE students — elementary and middle-school-aged, with junior counselors from Wareham High School — filling the Wareham Middle School hallways this summer. They’re also getting *out* of the classrooms, however!

The first day of school is coming quickly! Grades 1 through 12 begin on September 2. Pre-K and Kindergarten begins on September 10. We are looking forward to having our students back!

I hope you enjoy our summer updates and pictures. Keep following WarehamPS.org and the Wareham Public Schools Facebook page as we are winding up for September 2nd.

Stay tuned! We’ll be adding more photos to this post as soon as possible!

Happy birthday, Wareham!

Wareham is celebrating the 275th anniversary of the incorporation of the town. For our latest Community Spotlight, we thought it’d be appropriate to highlight the Summer of Celebration 2014 Committee (www.wareham2014.com).

This committee of volunteers has worked tirelessly throughout the past two years to organize community-wide events and ceremonies both for the anniversary of the incorporation and the 200th anniversary of the British Nimrod warship’s attack on Wareham, which was recognized earlier this summer.

These events — which included parades, re-enactments, historical displays, dances, and more — have provided educational opportunities and family-friendly fun for town residents and visitors alike.

Wareham Public Schools thanks many hard-working individuals on the Summer of Celebration 2014 Committee who have ensured that these important anniversaries do not go unnoticed.
