Dear Wareham Families,
On Wednesday, we welcomed our Wareham Public Schools faculty and staff back for the start of the 2016/17 school year. We celebrated their many accomplishments over the past year and highlighted exciting new improvements and initiatives that are in store for this coming year.
Wareham students, will be well prepared to meet any challenges they face. In a society that relies on 21st-century technology, our students will have 1:1 technology in Grades 2-12.
Decas Elementary will be in the full implementation of the innovative K2 Focus~ a highly regarded and creative early childhood curriculum from Boston Public Schools.
Both Minot Forest and Wareham Middle School have applied to become PBIS schools, encouraging good citizenship and positive behaviors school-wide.
Wareham Middle School welcomes its new principal, Dr. Peter Steedman, who brings much experience and knowledge to his new role. Monday will mark the beginning of the brand new Humanities Academy at WMS as well.
Wareham High School’s International Baccalaureate Candidacy Programs have expanded to both the Diploma Program and the Middle Years Program, meaning IB for all.
Our Global Education Programs are ever-expanding to include new schools in new countries; preparing our students to participate in a global society.
In addition to innovations in our programming, our facilities are also experiencing improvements. At Minot Forest School we will begin the next steps in the MSBA Building Project this fall, and the new roof for E corridor and boiler project at Decas will be completed by November.
Please enjoy the video in the link below, highlighting these coming attractions for Wareham Public Schools for 2016/17.
We greatly look forward to welcoming your children on Monday.
