Dear Wareham Families,
Anthony Robbins stated, “To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the ways in which we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” Diversity in thinking is one of the founding principles of our great nation. Diversity in communication is also extremely important. In Wareham Public Schools, we constantly strive to excel in communicating to parents, the community, and the world, about our academic offerings, innovative programming, and upcoming events. Some of our methods of communication utilize technology via our district web page, apps, and social media sites. We work with our local newspapers and television station to produce series of articles and videos that inform families and community members about district news. We also communicate through newsletters, flyers and phone calls. None of this, however, can replace the importance of periodically sitting down and having face to face conversations, both in small focus groups and individually. By meeting in person, we have the ability to actively listen to ideas, concerns, and suggestions that others may have. We believe that having numerous ways to communicate information is extremely important and we will continue to use a variety of methods to do so.
Please check out our web site each Friday for my weekly blog post and information about upcoming events at each school at warehamps.org. We have a very active Facebook page: Wareham Public Schools. We continue to grow our Twitter, @warehamps, and Instagram warehampublicschools, pages as well.
I would also invite you to attend a coffee on February 2, 2017, I will be sharing information about the FY18 budget and would like to hear your thoughts on this topic as well as other points of discussion that you would like to share. The coffee will be held in room 228 in the Multi-Service Building beginning at 9:00 a.m.
As I have said before and will continue to say, I invite you to call me or to sit down in person, as my door is always open.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood
