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.

Community Spotlight: Fence-painting in Onset

IMG_8713

Throughout the summer, Wareham Public Schools will be highlighting the many people who give back to our community through volunteer work. These people strengthen the fabric of our community, and we thank them!

Our first Community Spotlight is a neighborhood effort to paint the fence that runs adjacent to Onset Beach on South Boulevard in Onset Village.

Resident Ed Laffey began the job, and when Joy Clarkson and Louise Mastracchio — you’ll recognize them as the owners of the former Onset icon Kenny’s Salt Water Taffy — took notice, Joy organized a neighborhood-wide painting effort.

On Monday, June 30, a group of volunteers ranging in age from 9 to 81 picked up brushes to help.

“Beautifying Onset, one stroke at a time!” one volunteer shouted.

Inch by inch, the old, chipped paint was removed, and the fence became bright white again.

Joy thanked Municipal Maintenance Director Dave Menard and assistant Mary Healy, who she said have been very helpful in the effort.

Wareham Public Schools thanks Joy, Louise, and the team of volunteers for their hard work!

Volunteers ranged in age from 9 to 81!

Letter to the Community

To the Wareham Community:

The first school year of my tenure in Wareham is officially complete. I wanted to thank the town as a whole — students, parents, teachers and staff, volunteers, town officials, and the community at large — for your partnership. We had a very successful year!

Thank you for your willingness to work with me and my team as we embarked on this new journey. Thank you for participating in our forums, attending our meetings or watching on television, and for sharing your opinions and concerns.

Thank you for attending our various fundraisers, whether for our myriad of school clubs and teams, or for the Foundation for Wareham Education, which directly impacts our teachers and classrooms.

Your support — whether through providing words of encouragement, donating time, or contributing funds — is greatly appreciated. It is paramount in ensuring that we can continue to provide the best possible education and opportunities for the students of Wareham.

Thank you, again. I look forward to our continuing partnership. Here’s to the next year!

Sincerely,

Kimberly Shaver-Hood
Superintendent
