FW Service Club builds bat houses for our property with the help of a student from Shawsheen Technical High School!

Under the direction of Mrs. Casey & Mrs. Schnee, the Francis Wyman Service Club members selected BAT HOUSES for their project.  They helped design, build, and paint bat houses that will be installed around our school grounds to help minimize the mosquito population and promote greater participation in our Community Garden project located here at Francis Wyman.  Great job!

Benjamin Franklin visits Grade 3

Benjamin Franklin traveled back in time to enlighten our 3rd graders as to what life was like during Colonial times.  Students were able to ask and answer questions regarding Mr. Franklin's life and listened attentively as he shared stories of his childhood.

Francis Wyman Hosts the New England Elementary 1:1 Summit 
"Thank-you" to Mr. Schersten for hosting and coordinating this 1:1 Summit here at Francis Wyman! This morning event allowed teachers from neighboring districts to visit Francis Wyman and witness firsthand the amazing things our students and staff have learned that allows us to integrate technology into our classroom instruction each and every day.

5th grade students set up displays to show off their savvy technology skills!  These students have created a Student Help Desk to assist Mr. Schersten in his support of all teachers and students learning to navigate the IPads that are accessible to all here at school.  Other students show off some projects they have created on their devices using the Notability and Book Creator Apps that are commonly used in many classrooms.  Look out Marshall Simonds MS - we are sending some tech wizards your way!!
