March 24

Spring Pictures

At Wawaloam, we are trying a different vendor for Spring pictures in response to feedback we received last year. Spring Pictures are optional and only those who return picture envelopes will have pictures taken. We are hoping to do these outside depending on the weather and we will be photographing a different grade each of the scheduled days.
        Tuesday         April 4th      Kindergarten
Wednesday    April 5th      Grade 1
Thursday       April 6         Grade 2

School Committee Presentation 

We are looking forward to seeing all of the chorus students and the students who are working with their teachers for the school committee presentation. Hope to see you Tuesday at 6:00 AT METCALF.

Grade 2 Move to Metcalf
Mrs. Ratigan and I have just firmed up the days for the transition visits over to Metcalf for all of our Grade 1 and 2 students who will make up next year's Grade 2 and 3 students. We are working hard to make sure everyone is prepared and aware of this plan and are working in tandem every step of the way~ 

Math Night

This one minute video speaks volumes, what an AWESOME night for our students!

We received a shipment of Circus Tickets for the Garden Bros Circus in West Warwick in April which we will send home to you in case you are interested.
The ticket entitles you to a Free Student Ticket with Purchase of Adult Ticket
There is a place to print out coloring pages if you click the Fun and Games tab:

Lego Learning Kits

We are still having so much fun with our Lego Kits and love sharing what we are learning by using these in the classroom! 

Toys at School 
Please make sure your children are not bringing toys to school, this is our policy and your help enforcing this makes a HUGE difference! We end up with friends who are sad because they have lost or broken something special to them. If toys are out, they will be taken away and we will need you to come and pick them up.  Thank you so much for your help with this. 

Have a great weekend to all of you!

Book Fair Week 
BOOK FAIR RESCHEDULED TO MONDAY! Hi everyone. Due to school being closed, all afterschool activities are canceled as well. We have rescheduled all book fair activities that were happening today to Monday. We do not want any of the kids who haven't gotten a chance to come to the fair to be disappointed. All kids who were to visit the book fair today will be able to come to book fair on Monday. The classes that were scheduled today will have a chance on Monday morning as well as any students who were absent and missed their book fair day at school. 
The Family BOOK FAIR Event for K-6 has also been re-scheduled for Monday night from 6-8pm at Metcalf School. Dave Marchetti and his animal exhibit has also been rescheduled for Monday night too~ 

REMINDER:  EARLY RELEASE DAY on Thursday 3/16   (2 hours early)

Feelin' Groovy

Once again grade 2 students will have the chance to participate in the Feelin' Groovy Bookmark Contest, encouraging students to design a bookmark to share emotions, identify their feelings and draw pictures expressing them. 2 lucky students will have their design selected from each school participating and it will be turned into a bookmark for our entire 2nd Grade class.

Students will hear about this in specials in the next week or two. They will need to bring back a signed permission slip for their design to be included in the contest.

Family and Friends Next Community Meeting 4/12/17  9:30-11:00

We are very excited about our K-6 Math Night at Metcalf School on 3/22 from 5:30-7:00 PM
