Message from the Superintendent | Weekly Events

Dear Wareham Families,
 
Monday marks the 100th Day of school for our teachers and students. I wanted to take a moment and reflect upon many accomplishments throughout Wareham Public Schools in just 100 days. In the past 100 school days, we have had numerous teachers receive awards, honors, and recognition at the state, national and international levels. We have witnessed successful athletic seasons in various sports. Our National Honor Society inducted twenty-two outstanding students into our High School Chapter this week. Our students in the STEAM Academy harvested cranberries from their bog this fall. We have seen our students take top awards in academic and entrepreneurial competitions. We have enjoyed watching our students perform in “Noises Off,” in choral and instrumental performances and in before and after school clubs and activities. We have had over two dozen visitors from China participate in exchange programs to learn from best teaching practices in WPS.
 
We are indeed proud, of all that our students and teachers have achieved in this short time. However, we will not be content to sit idly by, resting on our past accomplishments. Rather, we continually raise the bar for ourselves and our students- always reaching, always striving, always seeking the next victory. On that note, I hope you enjoy this special 100th-day video. https://vimeo.com/153922573 Have a wonderful weekend.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood

Message from the Superintendent | Weekly Events February 1

Greetings Wareham Families,
 
Next Friday evening, February 5th our Wareham Girls Basketball team is teaming up with the Dick Melloni Youth Foundation to raise money for Trey Miranda, a Wareham High School student. Please join us at 6:30 pm at the high school gym for this worthy event.
 
The Class of 2017 has done a wonderful job supporting Trey and his family and has raised $2,000 so far. Trey has a difficult road ahead, so your support will mean so much to Trey and his family.
 
This past Monday, we welcomed nine students and a teacher from Shanghai, China. Our guests will be attending classes to get a flavor of American classroom life. We are very appreciative of the opportunity for our students to meet, and to learn about education in China and about Chinese culture. It is our hope that we will be able to send students and teachers to China next year to continue this exchange program, allowing our students the chance to study in Chinese classrooms, to learn some Mandarin and to experience an opportunity of a lifetime. Expanding global awareness for our students is vital, as we know our students are part of an increasingly fast-pace global environment which impacts virtually everything we do in today’s world.
 
If you have a few minutes, here is a short “Did You Know” video which highlights globalization in the age of “Big Data” and constant connectedness. https://youtu.be/uqZiIO0YI7Y
 
Thank you and enjoy your week.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood
Superintendent
