Wee Deliver
If you'd like to write a letter to your child for the Wee Deliver, please find the addresses posted at the top of the blog.  Seal your letter in an envelope and make sure to attach a "pretend" stamp. There is a mailbox in the main lobby for you to deliver your mail. We know it's tempting, but please refrain from sending any food through our mail system!  If you have any questions, please call the office at 781-270-1701. Thanks!



Mrs. Casey's 5th grade Math class earned a Principal's Pride Award this week by completing over100,000 math facts on Reflex Math.  Congratulations!

Join us for a presentation about Dyslexia, a language-based learning disability.

Dyslexia refers to a cluster of symptoms, which result in people having difficulties with specific language skills, particularly reading.
Students with dyslexia usually experience difficulties with other language skills such as spelling, writing, and pronouncing words.

This presentation will discuss the red flags, steps towards and after diagnosis and what to do when outside evaluations and school evaluations don't align.

FRANCIS WYMAN SCHOOL 
~2/1/2016~

HOORAY!

The entire "crew" of the SS Francis Wyman reached their goal of earning 150 Purple Pirate Coupons for demonstrating positive classroom and school expectations.  Each coupon earned a piece of the puzzle which slowly revealed the school wide reward.  The students worked extremely hard to earn PAJAMA DAY and a special treat during lunch this Friday.  
All students & staff are invited to wear their comfy pajamas to school on Friday, 2/5/2016!

Weekly Bulletin - January 29, 2016

Upcoming Events

February 3 - Practice Code Blue
February 5 -12 - Wee Deliver (What is Wee Deliver?Check below)
February 8 and 9 - Kindergarten Registration from 9am - 11am
February 15 - 19 - Winter Vacation, No School

“Wee Deliver”
Neither rain nor sleet nor dark of night will interrupt Francis Wyman’s “Wee Deliver” mail service.  Students throughout the grades write letters as our third graders deliver them in a small-scale simulation of a postal system. This activity encourages student writing in an authentic setting.   While students learn to properly write and address a letter, “Wee Deliver” encourages a sense of community between the grades.  “Wee Deliver” will begin Friday , February 5 and run through Friday, February 12.  Each room will have its own address so if you would like to mail a letter to your child (no packages or food please), drop it off in the mailbox by the office.  It must be properly addressed and must include a make-believe stamp, such as a sticker or a drawing.  A Classroom Address List will be distributed next week.

Fish Day for Francis Wyman K Students!



All Kindergarten classes participated in "Fish Day" this morning and I was excited to be a part of the fun and quite proud of the octopus I created!  Students crafted sea turtles, jellyfish, rainbow fish, shark hats, and sea stars to name just a few.  The colorful, creative display will transform the K hallway into an ocean extravaganza for the next few weeks.  Please stop by to view all their hard work.  Great Job Kindergarten team! 


Francis Wyman Service Learning Club


With support from Mrs. Casey and Mrs. Schnee, students from multiple grades volunteer their time and gather once a week to complete a project they selected that will improve our school and/or community.  During this session, students are working together to create a special banner for our school.  Stay tuned as we await the finished product!
