*On November 9, we will be having our first Veteran's Day Ceremony at Francis Wyman School.  This small ceremony will honor our veterans and active duty soldiers and will expose our students to a more "formal" Veteran's Day service.  In honor of the event, if your child is a scout, they are encouraged to wear their uniform to school on Wednesday.  Thank you to our veterans and active military personnel for their service to our country and for keeping us safe.

Thank you Mr. Moriya & Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
Francis Wyman School was honored to receive a $500 grant from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care last week.  Mr. Arif Moriya (FWS parent)  has nominated us for this award for two years.  Since we are in the beginning stages of updating our library/media center into a learning commons, the funds will be used to supply new materials for all students using this space. Mrs. Ardizzoni and Ms. Carney are seen here proudly accepting the grant.

Continuing our Fall celebration, Mr. Doiron, our new Assistant Principal, engaged these students in an integrated literacy/math activity.  He shared the story Five Little Pumpkins with all our Kindergarten students over the past week.  Thanks Mr. D!

Students who participate will be encouraged to participate in a themed dress up day every Friday from now until Thanksgiving. Thank you in advance for your generosity & support!
