Happy Summer!

It is officially here!  Can you believe it?? I am passing along a lot of information today, sorry if you are reading this via phone!

Report Cards went home yesterday for Kindergarten and today for Grades 1 and 2. With your report card, you will find a business card sized magnet with a few important “Save the Date” items.  For example, our Back to School Celebration will be held on Monday, August 25 from 1:30-3:30.  This event is a great opportunity to meet your teacher and find out what friends are in your class. We are excited to have “All Hands Drumming” from 1:30-2:15 and “Toe Jam Puppet Band” from 2:30-3:30 booked for this event!  We will also have many resources available for families, you will find our kitchen, the bus company, scouts, karate etc. and of course PTA!

One consideration for summer time fun is the FREE EWG Summer Track Program. Please visit the District website Announcements page for details. This program is available for children 14 and younger. You can also paste this link into your browser: I plan to go with my daughter it would be great to see you there!

Also, please visit the District website's Community Announcements page for information regarding the "Skills and Drills Youth Basketball Clinic - for Girls ages 7 - 12

As a reminder, our school supports the local food banks, if you are in need of assistance this summer you may contact: Christine Heart Skaggs if you are an Exeter resident  at 294-3176 or Marge Gartleman if you live in West Greenwich at 397-4234. Additionally, you can reach Mrs. Larkin RN if you have any questions at 295-8802.

We are so thankful to those of you who volunteered this year, we could not have done everything that we did without all of you! You have “earned your wings!”

Wawaloam will be a busy place this summer, we are adding new technology and we are so excited about upgrading our mini computer lab!

I did find a pretty cool website called “Wonderopolis”. If you are interested in a summer online learning site, check this out:  I have not explored yet but it looks like it will be worth the while.

Congratulations to Jared Sweet and Cameron Lindberg! They were our year end  Grades 1 and 2 PBIS bike raffle winners today!! They were SO excited . Mrs Briggs even got in on the action!! Check out the photos!
Also Congratulations to our Kindergarten Friends for doing such a fantastic job at their celebration today!!
Best wishes to all Grade 2 students at Metcalf next year! Again, we will miss you.

Hope to see all of our Fall  2014 Grade 1 and 2 students at our back to school celebration on August 25 at 1:30!!!
I will check email all summer for any questions you may have. Thank you for everything!

Bee Safe, Bee Happy, Bee Kind!
