Weekly Bulletin

It has been another exciting week at Francis Wyman School.  The new Kindergarten class, which will graduate in 2027, has settled right in and is already fully engaged in many fun letter and number activities.  We enjoy sharing their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning every day! 

The 1st, 4th and 5th grade classes have received their classroom IPads and here the 4th grade classes, along with many teachers and support staff, assist the students in downloading the essential learning apps that will help support classroom instruction throughout the year.  The 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their new technology tools which will be introduced shortly!

Here's a cute pic...
First graders harvesting beans in the FWS garden.  Last Spring, with the support of Mr. Peter Coppola, the 1st grade classes began planting vegetables in the new Community Garden located behind our school.  It is a wonderful opportunity to build school/community connections while teaching students first hand about science and nutrition.  We are looking to expand our gardening opportunities this year and would love to have additional parent volunteers to help "grow" this project.  Please let Julie know if you would like to help. 

And today at Francis Wyman we celebrated "National Talk Like a Pirate" day with Captain McDonald and Pirate Schultz greeting students with a hearty "Aaaargh" as they entered school this morning.  We invited all students to talk like pirates today as they set sail for an adventurous day of learning!

Back to School Night for Grades 3 - 5
Parents, please join us for an informational evening back to school on September 23rd from 6pm - 8pm. Mrs. McDonald will be available for a Confidentiality Meeting at 7:45 for any parent who would like to volunteer in our school this year.  

Music Notes
A new strings program will be introduced to 3rd graders at Francis Wyman School this fall. Similar to the instrument program in 4th and 5th grade, our third graders will have an opportunity to rent a string instrument, take lessons, and perform in school.  More information will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

Principal's Coffee
All parents are welcome on October 2nd from 8:30am to 9:30am to have coffee with our new Principal, Mrs. Nicole McDonald.  This will be a wonderful opportunity to get your questions answered and enjoy time with other parents.
