We are happy to welcome in Fall with many exciting programs continuing to take place at Francis Wyman School. The Science Center staff has been busy collaborating with classroom teachers and working with 2nd grade students taking "tree walks", cracking geodes in 3rd grade, and sharing some animals and explaining their adaptations with 4th graders. The students got a chance to pet a mighty python and they were all much more enthusiastic than Mrs. McDonald who was careful not to get too close!
Also, 3rd-5th grade students who were interested in taking band lessons received their instruments and began working with Mrs. Gendron this week. Many future flute, trumpet, saxaphone, and even violin players will be able to say they began their illustrious musical careers here at Francis Wyman School!!
Remember to check your child's school folder today as the iReady Reading and Symphony Math reports for grades 1 - 5 were sent home for your review. These reports reflect the student's beginning of the year performance and help us to carefully program to meet each student's individual needs. Assessments will be completed periodically throughout the year to help us monitor student progress at each grade level. Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher if you have questions or academic concerns.
