Kindergarten Grade Level Meeting

This week, Nurse Larkin visited with the entire Kindergarten and she talked to them about their "COUGHSPOT".

She reminded students that we all want to stay as healthy as possible and by washing our hands and coughing into our elbow (coughspot) we can all make a difference! We are so impressed with how Respectful, Responsible and Safe kindergarteners are during our weekly meetings!

First Grade was lucky to have a visit with Mrs. Scheff, our music teacher- she shared what it would be like if you joined chorus and pretty soon GRADE 1 will have the chance to sign up! Be on the lookout for more information soon.

Thank you to all of you who have sent in items for our EXPLORATION CENTER! We are so excited about getting this space ready for our students! We are still going to need lots of interesting items to keep our young scientists busy so if you want to clear out some treasures and send them in this direction, we would be happy to give them a new home!

There is a FALL FAMILY FUN FESTIVAL coming up on October 20th at the High School from 6-8 PM. They are holding a Trunk or Treat event with Fall Games, Spooky Treats and a Costume Contest. This event is being sponsored by the EWG Class of 2019.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Open House events over the past couple of weeks. We hope you enjoyed the special presentation put on by the teacher of your child, they worked so hard to prepare and are always so proud to share! We have such a great learning community! 

This was the first week of the year for the Grade Level meetings. You would be very proud of your children for the Respectful, Responsible and Safe behavior they demonstrated! Kindergarten students met with Mrs. Curry and I to introduce the Second Step program, we reviewed expected and unexpected behavior and met "Puppy". Grade 1 students were reminded that they are the Role Models for our school being the oldest students and we talked about ways they could help show Kindergarten friends what is expected.

An informational packet came home this week from no pressure-  We know a lot of items come home, this is another opportunity, like Boxtops or Stop and Shop Rewards to support our school.  We are just passing along the opportunity for you to participate if interested.

If you have any items at home that are collecting dust that we could use for recess or for our bee bucks prizes, we are happy to take these off of your hands! Think about jump-ropes, sand toys, chalk, etc. For bee buck prizes, the children love small, trinket type items like little cars, notebooks etc. Sometimes leftover party favors end up on our doorstep and we put these to excellent use!

The Exeter-West Greenwich Regional School District is counting on the attendance of as many students as possible children each day. Below, you will find an interesting fact and a link that will provide more statistics and resources regarding school attendance. We recognize that from time to time children are sick and look forward to working together, hand in hand, to ensure the greatest attendance possible for each child.
  • Almost 10,000 public schools across the United States - or 11 percent of the total - have chronic absence rates that affect 30 percent or more of their students. A new report by Attendance Works and the Everyone Graduates Center provides a national and state analysis of how many schools face these high levels of chronic absence, and shares Portraits of initiatives that show how chronic absence can be turned around, even when it reaches high levels in a school, district or particular student population.

We have some pretty incredible accomplishments happening out there in our EWG community! Please take the time to share these with us, we would love to highlight special activities that are taking place around and about our community! We would love the chance to share some uplifting and positive highlights about Wawaloam students, simply send the information to me via email. We also LOVE to show pictures of interesting places where children are READING- please share.
