Dear Wareham Families,
Each week, there are a multitude of activities that occur in and around our school campuses, and even far beyond, in which our students truly shine.
On Saturday, April 23rd, Wareham Middle School students participated in the Regional Science Fair at Regis College. I’d like to acknowledge all of the students who worked so diligently to prepare exhibits for this competition, as well as their teacher, Ms. Kim Scott. The following students placed and will be moving on to the State Science Fair in June:
Colton Rasmussen “How Much Gas does your Favorite Beverage Have?”
Tim Halpin, Kyle Vermilya, and Joshua Alpert “Stop the Pop”
Wane Parker Jr., Noah Marriott, and James Fitzgerald “The Turbinator”
Olivia Powers and Chloe Hogan “Smile”
And in first place, we send our congratulations to Jordan DeMedeiros for his “Renewable Energy Complex (REC)” exhibit.
This month, the annual Scotty Awards were held across the district. The Scotty awards are presented to students who demonstrate excellence in kindness, leadership and citizenship. This year the Decas students who best exemplified these ideals in each grade are: Kindergartener, Austin Lassiter, first grade student, Meadow Diede , and second grader, Brendan Spenard. Congratulations to the Scotty Award winners in all of our Wareham schools!
1,100 miles from Wareham, at DECA Nationals last week, WHS student Brett McSherry placed as a medalist in this highly competitive annual exposition held in Nashville, Tennessee this year. We are extremely proud of Brett for his outstanding accomplishment and of all of our DECA students in the work that they do in their entrepreneurial classes and beyond the school day.
Last night I attended the Wareham High School Art show. I was thoroughly inspired by all of the creativity expressed by the students through paintings, drawings, pottery and sculpture. The painter’s tape designs, in particular, really stood out to me. The middle school and high school students who participated in this gallery showing have incredibly superb talent.
These four events are just a handful of examples of the many weekly opportunities in which our students are highlighted for their exemplary achievements. In the last several weeks of school there are many more activities that we hope you will attend. Please check out our web site and social media pages for announcements of coming events.
