Weekly Bulletin September 25, 2015

Reminder: Monday is PICTURE DAY for all Francis Wyman Students. Forms went home in backpacks this week.  If you need another form, they are available in the office.  

Burlington Public Librarian visits K, 1, and 2 today!

All students were encouraged to visit the local library to check out books and see the many resources that are available there.  Forms are also available at Francis Wyman for families to apply for a library card for each student.

Camp Bournedale
The 5th grade students from Francis Wyman and Pine Glen traveled to Plymouth for an overnight adventure at Camp Bournedale.  The students had the opportunity to study ocean ecology, marine biology, and participate in Project Adventure to put their teamwork skills to the test!  The weather was perfect and a great time was had by all who participated.  Thank-you to the 5th grade staff and all the parents that volunteered to chaperone this highly anticipated adventure.  

BRIDGES:  GROWING OLDER, GROWING TOGETHER is seeking grandparents and adults age 55+ for their intergenerational program.   There is an urgent need for volunteers for the Francis Wyman session beginning on Thursday, October 15th.  Volunteers commit to one hour per week, from 1 to 2 p.m.,  for six consecutive weeks.  Working in pairs they support teacher instruction by engaging a small group of fourth grade students in thoughtful conversations.  The lessons promote mutual understanding, respect, friendship and family ties.  Volunteers do not need to be Burlington residents.   Contact Kathy Lawless by phone at 781-273-4109 or to register.

The $15 for admission gets you 2 strings of bowling, shoe rental, food, beverages, carnival activities, and entry into the door prize (Kings Gift Certificate).
