Message from the Superintendent

Dear Wareham Families,
With spring now in full swing, students, teachers, coaches and administrators are busy in a flurry of exciting activities. Tonight the Wareham High School production of “Rent! School Edition!” opens and runs nightly through Saturday from 7:00-9:00 pm. On Sunday, they will partner with the WHS Culinary Department to offer a Mother’s Day brunch at 10:30 a.m. followed by a matinee at 12:00 p.m.
Elsewhere in the district, students are applying the knowledge they have gained during the year, by completing their MCAS assessments. Parents and guardians of preschoolers are heading to parent conferences and bringing their children to Kindergarten screenings and the Annual CFCE Ice Cream Social, held at Decas School. Field trips are happening at almost every grade level, offering our students an opportunity for experiential learning that ties into their curriculum. Some of the other spring events planned include band and chorus concerts, talent shows, and field day. All of these performances offer chances for our students to showcase the many and varied talents that they possess.
Students across the districts are studying for end of term assessments, final exams, and preparing book reports, projects and portfolios that give others a glimpse into what they have worked so hard towards all year long. Our sports teams are on the fields practicing and participating in games, matches and meets; representing their school and community with pride and dignity. In addition, many students are gearing up for prom night, awards nights and commencement ceremonies.
We are indeed, proud of all of our students and their various areas of accomplishment. I hope they, and you, take time, amidst the flurry of activity that always accompanies this time of year, to pause and reflect on the personal successes that they have experienced this school year.
Best wishes for a wonderful weekend. And to all mothers, grandmothers and those who fulfil a mothering role in our students’ lives, I wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day.
Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood
