Francis Wyman Pride!
This week, Kelly Browne, former FW graduate and daughter to Mrs. Browne Grade 3 teacher, played hockey for the USA women's U18 team in Russia.  Students in third grade donned their red, white, and blue to support Kelly and Team USA.  At the time of this post, the Women's U18 team has won all of their games, making it to the final game on Saturday morning.  Kelly scored in today's game against Canada to tie the game up and bring it to overtime.  USA won the game in a shootout!  The gold medal match is set for Saturday morning.  GO TEAM USA!

Happy New Year!
All of us at Francis Wyman wish you and your families a peaceful, prosperous 2018!

A quick look back at our year end activities . . .

Grade 2 and 3 Learn Engineering Skills

Before the winter break, all 2nd and 3rd grade science classes tested their teamwork and engineering skills.  Here, Ms. Screnci's second grade classroom constructed bridges with some basic materials. They used their creativity and ingenuity to make suspension bridges. Mrs. Browne's third grade class worked hard in their teams to build levitating "railroad" cars that would run on a track. We have engineers in the making!

 Kindergarten Classes Sparkle in the Nutcracker 

All kindergarten classes participated in their annual representation of the Nutcracker ballet.  Thank you to all our guests that joined us for this memorable performance!

First Grade Students Celebrated Pajama Day

Thank you PTO!
The office staff would like to express our appreciation to the PTO and all our families that extended holiday greetings, warm wishes, and tasty treats (including these tasty chocolate covered strawberries) throughout the holiday season!  We are grateful for our thoughtful FW community!

Congrats to Madelyn in Mrs. Scott's 2nd-grade classroom who named the alligator, Elbert. Thank you to Mrs. Pavlicek and the Science Center Team for bringing us fabulous animals, lessons, and experiments. Be watching for a "DIY" snow experiment for the winter break. 

Hour of Code in Action

Mrs. Guanci's kindergarten students work together with a partner to practice new coding skills they are learning in the Library/Learning Commons.  It's never too young to start coding!
