Dear Wareham Families,
This Wednesday, September 21, we celebrated World Peace Day. Officially recognized in 2001, this day of peace is celebrated internationally, with many countries honoring peace in a variety of ways. In the US, the Peace Bell is rung at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. The bell is made up of coins donated by children worldwide. A gift from Japan, the bell’s inscription reads, “Long live absolute world peace.”
Wareham Middle School celebrated World Peace Day on Wednesday by participating in the peaceoneday.org’s “One Day, One Goal” campaign. With the notion that soccer, known internationally as football, unites people and transcends such barriers and language and economic divides, this campaign encourages people across the world to play 30 minutes of non-competitive soccer on September 21st. And that is precisely what Wareham Middle School teachers and students did.
Last week, teachers used their “Viking Time” periods to discuss concepts of peace with students and to brainstorm ideas that promote peace in the schools and community. And on Wednesday afternoon, everyone at the Middle School headed outdoors for some peaceful and enjoyable exercise with soccer balls. A highlight of the event was when students in Ms. Kim Scott’s class addressed the crowd to present their ideas about peace.
We have posted some pictures of the event on our social media sites. You can search for them using the hashtag #WorldPeaceinWareham.

Our Wareham High School DECA Program will be sponsoring our first annual mattress sale on Saturday, October 22nd.

This has been a very successful fundraiser in local school districts for the past 10 years and we are very excited to be able to sponsor this event here for Wareham High School for the first time.
Three major, national brands will be available: Simmons Beautyrest, Restonic, & Therapedic. They are all brand new with guaranteed manufacturer warranties and will discounted 30% – 50% off retail off retail giving the community an opportunity to purchase the same brand new, name brand mattresses that are found in stores, but at lower prices with full manufacturer warranties. Much higher quality for price than a retail store!
There will be 24 different mattress sets to choose from, available in all sizes, price ranges, delivery and free lay-a-way will be available. Styles include plush sets, pillow-top sets, latex, memory foam, gel beds, and Adjustable Beds. Bed frames, luxury pillows and mattress protectors are also available
Floor models will be on display at Wareham High School Gym from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, October 22.
Every purchase benefits the students, so if you, or anyone you know is in the market for a new mattress or could replace another mattress in your home…check out this fundraiser.
