Reminder to Parents Regarding Morning Drop-off
From the student handbook-
A.M. Drop-Off  (8:20 – 8:30am) - will occur in the back of the building. All cars entering school grounds to drop off students will go to the back of the building around the parking lot and pull along the sidewalk parallel to the gym and Reading Garden. The students will disembark along the sidewalk and enter the school through the doors at the end of the Reading Garden walkway and gym doors.  Please pull cars all the way up to the corner.  For safety, obey teachers directing you and your child.  The cars will then exit the parking lot the  way they entered into the parking lot, continue down to the second right between the islands in front of the building and exit left to Terrace Hall Ave.
After 8:30am, once duty teachers go inside, parents must park and walk their children to the main office. The back entrance may be used.

Technology Night
Come and explore the vast technology options which support Math and Literacy.  Discover all the mathematic and literacy connections that surround us every day.  All Francis Wyman families are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Please join us from 6:00 – 7:30pm.  See you then!

Massachusetts Parent Involvement Survey 2012-2013
We need your help to make Massachusetts 2012-2013 Parent Involvement Survey a record success!  Each year the Mass Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (MADESE) surveys parents to determine how well your child’s school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child’s education.  All states must collect these data as part of their State Performance Plans required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Make your voice heard!
·        The web-based survey is open through March 29th, 2013.
·         You can complete the survey online at:
Your feedback is important in helping the state and local school systems to continue to improve education programs for children with specialized needs.
