Dear Wareham Families,
Over the last weeks of school each year, I have the honor of attending different award ceremonies. This week I attended the Athletic Awards at Wareham High School, which celebrated many accomplished athletes in their various sports. Next week, we will be honoring our graduating seniors on June 2nd at our annual Academic Honor Celebration. During this outstanding evening, some our 2016 soon to be graduates will be awarded scholarships with a total accumulation of over a quarter of million dollars! Fantastic!!!!
I, along with many others know our students are wonderful students and over the past few years, I have noticed that there are certain character traits that our award recipients share in common, such as Motivation, Versatility, and Perseverance.
As Motivated students, our award winners realize the importance of education and of doing things to the best of their ability. They recognize that if something is worth doing, then it is worth doing it well and to the best of their ability.
As Versatile students, many have had to juggle many things, such as school work, after school activities and athletics, family life, friends, work, and evening and weekend commitments. They organized their time and energy in such a way that their education always remained a priority.
And they have shown Perseverance through it all. From the beginning of the year until the last school day, they would not be satisfied with anything less than the best. When it was difficult, they sought help and studied harder, but they never gave up.
These outstanding traits will be of great benefit in college and post-secondary pursuits. We applaud their work and congratulate each and every one of our students, their teachers for their tremendous dedication and their families for their continuous support.
Please wish for a sunny day and join us as we celebrate our 2016 Wareham High School Graduation on June 3, 2016, 6:30 at Spillane Field and our Night School Graduation on June 1st beginning at
Have a safe and relaxing Memorial Day weekend.
