Francis Wyman received a fresh, new layer of snow this week.  Thank you to our DPW, Recreation Department and FW custodial staff who worked hard to clear the roadways, driveways, and sidewalks of our school in a timely manner.  In addition, I would like to add a HUGE thanks to our parents for your understanding and patience as we all continue to endure this cold, snowy season.  Please continue to give yourself a couple extra minutes during drop off and pick up times, in addition to a couple of extra deep breaths, as we are all doing our best to ensure student safety while appreciating the "beauty" of this long winter season.  

Highlights of the week:

Mr. Doiron pitches in during ELA in Mrs. Lynch's class...
Mrs. Ski's first-grade readers are eager to read their space stories to Mrs. McDonald! 

Grade 2 students eagerly explored liquid properties and collected their data displaying their findings in their science journals. Students worked in teams to discuss their observations, apply scientific vocabulary, and record their findings on their data sheets.  

Grade 2 students in Ms. Screnci's class, with support from Ms. Sacco, our district's ELA Coach, worked on a writing lesson demonstrating how they could utilize two-column notes before writing a compare/contrast essay.  

All of our schools in Burlington are committed to student success.  We agree that each student's consistent attendance at school is essential to helping them achieve their highest potential.  Please review the enclosed letter from District Attorney Marian Ryan regarding Truancy and School Attendance guidelines in Massachusetts.
