Principal's Monthly Coffee

The monthly coffees have provided a new opportunity for parents to learn more about what goes on at Francis Wyman School, ask questions and discuss ideas. Although the primary purpose of these meetings is to discuss the RtI initiative, the agenda is open, allowing for many topics to be discussed. There have been discussions on topics such as testing, RtI groupings, criteria for use of video material, ideas for extension activities, technology, the instrumental music program, the Italian program, parent volunteer opportunities, class size, the budgetary process and many more. As a result of the tremendous interest in providing enriching opportunities for our students, an "Extension Group" was formed. This group of parents and school personnel are working together to explore ideas for afterschool and in-school extension activities that will be provided by parent volunteers. The Extention Group's next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 28 at 8:15 AM.The next Principal's Monthly Coffee is Monday, January 11 at 9:00 AM. All are welcome to both meetings!
