Dear Wareham Families,
The clock is ticking down on another outstanding year in Wareham Public Schools. This time of year is filled with the excitement of field trips, field days, awards ceremonies, class presentations, final exams, graduation and end of the year celebrations.
I began the year talking about the many qualities of Vikings that allowed them to be so successful in their quests, such as loyalty, determination, grit, and perseverance. It is these qualities that have led to so many of the stories behind my weekly blog post for families, as well as my monthly Viking Tales newsletter for staff. I am so proud of the many accomplishments of our students and staff. You have broken through barriers, exceeded many goals and worked through any adversity you may have faced. You are Vikings, and that is precisely what Vikings do.
Amidst the joy that accomplishments bring and the excitement of celebrations, there is deep sadness as well. The Wareham Public Schools has lost a beloved member of its family this week, Trey Miranda. Our hearts are broken. We will remember Trey for many things, perhaps most of all, his fighting spirit. A true Viking, indeed.
Although students are bringing closure to the 2015/16 school year, our work for the next school year is already well underway. We will be building upon the strengths in programming that has been put in place to enhance learning opportunities for students. We will continue adding technology and integrating it into all aspects of the curriculum, becoming a 1:1 district. We will continue to add to the unparalleled opportunities that Wareham Public Schools offers for students in this region.
My best wishes to you all for a peaceful, relaxing and well-deserved summer vacation. Please keep an eye on the website and FaceBook pages over the summer for news on our summer programming, as well as reminders for fall activities. Sincerely,
Dr. Kimberly B. Shaver-Hood
