Wawaloam Gives Thanks

As we approach the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, take the time to reflect on our good fortune. I want you all to know that I am thankful everyday that I have the privilege to lead a school in a district full of families that teach children the importance of giving and being kind to each other. We love seeing how happy the children are to add to our food collection.

Thank you to everyone for bringing in so many items for our food drive! We collected over 800 items! Be very proud! This will make a big difference for many local families.

Check out the writing that our Kindergarten friends are producing, every day these early learners are improving on these skills! Mrs. Petrarca's class created success criteria and are all trying their best! 


Be on the lookout for a flyer about bringing a stuffed animal to school. We are happy to help our community friend, Miss Diane from the Exeter Library. Next week will be busy, as short as it it! For a $1.00 donation (optional) we are inviting everyone to help us help others. Her daughter Ella is putting in all of her effort to recover from an injury over the summer and the financial impact has been difficult. Of course, every little bit helps. 

We are also selling raffle tickets to support the basket fundraiser that the library has organized. They have over 35 gift baskets that have been donated to support our community friends. If you are interested, Karen or Claudette in the office can help you out. Please consider purchasing tickets.
