Lunch with 2nd grade Friends

This week I benefited from the company of Miss Keira & Miss Julia who had worked diligently to save 100 tickets for outstanding effort!  As a reward, we dined together and played a competitive game of Jenga!  Great job ladies - keep working hard.

Grade 5 PE Helpers...
Grade 5 students are willing to "stand on their heads" to be helpful with the 
1st grade classes they assist during their intervention block.  These 5th grade
mentors are great role models for our younger students!

Soup for the "Souper Bowl"

Francis Wyman families once again demonstrated their community spirit and amazing support by donating 485 cans of soup to contribute to our local food bank.  These student council members helped to build towers of soup so all students could see how many cans had been donated! Thank you to Student Council for helping to coordinate this effort and to all of you for supporting this worthy community outreach project.

Kindergarten Fish Day

Students in all 5 Kindergarten classes enjoyed rotating around to each class to create multiple projects representing the variety of sea life that lives in our oceans.  There were crabs, octopus, sharks, jellyfish, lobsters, and sea urchins "swimming" all around Francis Wyman for the morning!  A colorful, creative ocean mural adorns the Kindergarten halls as a result of their hard work.

Thank you PTO for sponsoring an enjoyable, successful Paint Night fundraiser! Everyone went home with a big smile and a new work of art to share. 

A Note from the FW Nurse, Mrs. Hazen...
Flu and cold season is in full swing.  I just wanted to send out a gentle reminder that if your child has a fever or has been vomiting, they need to be out of school for 24 hours after the fever or vomiting has resolved.  If your child is not feeling well, please try to keep them home.  Another reminder, hand washing is the single, most effective method of preventing the spread of colds and flu.  Please make sure that you are encouraging your child to perform proper hand washing throughout the day, and we will be doing the same here at school.  Working together, we can help keep all of our students safe and healthy!

Teachers in grades 2 and 3 observed a writing lesson modeled by Kelly Boswell and then helped support students as they tried out this new strategy.
