Weekly Bulletin May 1, 2015

Well it's May 1st and we are coming into the home stretch of a very busy and exciting year!  There are many events coming up at Francis Wyman over the next two months so be sure to check for notices, calendar updates, and blog posts for all the latest news.

Members of the after school Coding
Club working together to solve a
programming problem.

Students from grades 3, 4, and 5 join together
after school to develop coding skills allowing
them to create their own computer programs.
The coding club meets once a week and allows
students to work together to develop problem
solving skills.  Following these 6 weeks,
students will have an opportunity to join the Lego
Robotics Club to build and program their own
robot creation.  Thank-you to Mr. Schersten,
Mrs. Lynch, Mrs. D'Amico, Mrs. O'Neill, and
all the high school mentors from the robotics

A great big "Thank-you" to our PTO which continues to generously support all of our educational goals here at Francis Wyman.  The teachers are grateful for the recent Apple Itunes cards that allow them to add educational apps on their IPads which help support and enhance daily instruction.  In addition, students are very appreciative of the variety of new playground equipment that has been added to their recess time with plenty of new equipment to go around for everyone!!  Look for the notices regarding BOOK BINGO coming up May 11 for grades K-2 and May 18 for grades 3-5.  Thanks again for all you do to support our school!

Will you be a chaperone at the BHS Post Graduation (all-night) Party?  Its tradition for the parents of underclassmen to chaperone the party for our graduating seniors.  This year the party is going to be held at Kings in Burlington. We need volunteers for shift 2 (midnight to 3am on Mon June 9), shift 3 (3am - 5am on Mon June 9).  You don't need to have a child in the high school, any adult that does not have a senior at the party is welcome.  This is a great way to "pay it forward."  Help us this year and when your child graduates, the parents of underclassmen will be there for you!  To volunteer, or if you have any questions, please contact Tina Pesiridis at 617-605-4496
