February 3, 2017 Wawaloam News and Updates

Dear Families,

I had the pleasure this week of learning first hand what it feels like to be a Wawaloam School student! First, I had to find a student willing to have a personal shadow for Groundhog Day and then I was able to put this plan into action.

From morning routines to art class and lunch and recess, I can assure you that the students at Wawaloam are non-stop all day long! The learning and enriching experiences that they have to be challenged are endless and I will remember today for a long time to come!

 A very special thank you to Jael and to Mrs. Donnelly for making space and time for me to participate in this professional development exercise.

Thank you for your feedback and input, we have been moving busses forward earlier in the morning and adding 10 minutes to our parent drop off time for four consecutive days and we have heard very positive feedback. These are the kind of situations that make me very proud to be part of a community that is willing to speak up and put our student's safety first in all situations.  We have also noticed the difference in the increase in fresh air time in the morning for students. So far, this is a win-win in all directions. Please continue to let us know what you think so that we can always move in a forward direction.

Today, we were lucky to have our health and PE teachers and school nurse organize a whole school walk after lunch in support of the American Heart Association Go Red Day. This is the 15th year of the organization leading this initiative and we had a healthy, happy time participating. We walked 3 laps around the school from 1:30-1:45 PM. Thank you, Mrs. Breene, Mrs. Guglielmo and Mrs. Larkin for helping to keep everyone healthy at Wawaloam school!

Math night is coming!! Save the date for your family: March 22, 2017 at Metcalf School!

Hoping everyone has a great weekend! Go Patriots!
