    Dear Wareham Families,

    Today is one of the biggest days in Wareham Public Schools. This evening, at 6:30 PM, the Wareham High School Class of 2019 will participate in their commencement ceremony. For many, this marks the end of 13 years of education in the Wareham Public School district. For some who may have transferred in, this could signal the close of your first and final year. But for all who will receive their diploma on Spillane Field tonight, regardless of the time you have spent with us, this is indeed, a major milestone. In several hours, they will be graduates of Wareham High School and many will move on to college, career, or military.

    For the past few weeks, our seniors have participated in a number of year-end celebrations, such as Prom, Athletic Awards, Senior Awards, and Senior Week activities such as Senior Breakfast and a cook-out, complete with food trucks and entertainment. All of these festivities have been leading up to tonight’s recognition of their hard work and dedication to academic achievement. And the school district and Wareham community applaud them for their accomplishments.

    As our seniors walk across the field tonight, for the final time as WPS students, I send my heartfelt congratulations on behalf of the entire district. Congratulations Class of 2019, on a job well done, and best wishes as you move forward into the next chapter of your life.

     

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood

    Dear Wareham Families,

    As we head into the last weeks of school, there have been many events that celebrate the accomplishments of our Wareham students and there still are several more to come. As always, I am extremely impressed with the level of effort and achievement that our students put forth. As a community, we recognize and applaud their efforts.

    As well, the outstanding dedication of our Wareham teachers does not go unnoticed. The innovative instructional practices happening in all of our classrooms every day provide a learning environment that is second to none. In particular this week, I’d like to recognize the efforts of Wareham Middle School teacher, Ms. Harriette Sullivan for implementing curriculum which teaches middle school students about the harmful effects of vaping. Ms. Sullivan has been named as an Ambassador for the Catch Your Breath Program. To learn more and to see our students and school highlighted, follow this link: https://catchinfo.org/spotlight/wareham-middle-school/

    This is just one example of the many outstanding opportunities and experiences offered to our Wareham Students!

    Best wishes for a wonderful weekend.

    Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood

    Dear Wareham Families,

    I believe that one of the best features of living and working in Wareham, is how the community embraces diversity. There are clubs, organizations, and events that celebrate cultural diversity throughout the year in our schools and our town. Wareham Public School’s International Exchange Program is a shining example of the district and community celebrating and learning from the culture of others, and sharing our culture with students from around the globe. Wareham Public Schools has been involved in international exchange programs since the 1970s and the program continues to bring new perspectives to students and families in our community each year through the relationships that are formed with our exchange students.

    The following video, https://vimeo.com/337507095/e9dd2bd60b , gives a brief overview of the experiences of three of our international students in Wareham this year. We are currently seeking a host family for one more senior male student for the 2019/20 school year. If you are interested, or would like more information about becoming a short- or long-term host family, please contact Maureen Manning at mmanning@wareham.k12.ma.us.

    Best wishes for a wonderful weekend. May we give pause this Memorial Day to remember those who have served in the US armed forces and who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

     

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood

    Dear Wareham Families,

    It’s hard to believe that this Sunday will be the 40th time that the Wareham High School DECA Club has hosted their annual dinner and auction. For an event to last four decades, is a tremendous accomplishment. This is a testament to the continued commitment of those involved in the organization throughout that long span of time. Although over the past forty years the faculty has changed, and certainly the students, but what has not waivered, is an understanding of the importance of DECA in the Wareham community.

    DECA is a program at WHS that enables students to learn and practically apply key business skills and strategies, such as marketing, negotiation, and making sales pitches. Students compete locally, regionally, state-wide, and at international competitions. Our Wareham students often return home with awards from competitions, but more importantly, they all return home with valuable knowledge, skill sets, and experiences that will serve them well in higher education and in the work force.

    DECA students run several fundraisers throughout the year to help offset the cost of their participation in competitions. The 40th annual DECA Dinner and Auction will be held on Sunday, May 19 in the WHS Cafeteria from 5:00-10:00 PM. Dinner will be baked stuffed chicken with green beans and rice pilaf, catered by Minkle Boys Catering. Tickets are $5 donation pre-sale, and $7 at the door. We hope you consider supporting our DECA students and attending this fun-filled event.

     

    Best wishes for a wonderful weekend.

    Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood

    Dear Wareham Families,

    One of the hallmarks of our community is its diversity. Each year for the past 13 years, Wareham Public Schools has held an International Night that celebrates the rich diversity that our town has to offer. During International Night, students, families, and community members host tables with food, traditional clothing, and artifacts from their home country or country of ancestry. There are musical and dance performances that represent the culture and traditions of many in our community. Each year, the event has grown and this year, we were thrilled to have the travelling globe available from Project EarthView of Bridgewater State University. Students and families were able to climb inside the globe to learn about geography from a BSU instructor.

    Please enjoy this video highlighting this year’s event: https://vimeo.com/333983847.

    Congratulate to Minot Forest Elementary School for receiving this year’s Healthy Start Award!

    Last evening at the School Committee Meeting a number of our staff were honored for years of service or retirement. We are extremely fortunate to have such talented staff working with our students. They make a positive difference in the lives of our students on a daily basis.

    As we head into the remaining weeks of the school year, the calendar is filled with activities that celebrate the accomplishments of Wareham Public Schools students. From awards ceremonies, to the spring musical, to art shows, musical performances and more, it is clear that our students, faculty, and staff all have much Viking Pride. For us, in Wareham, the Viking is more than a drawing on a football helmet or a painting on one of our school’s walls. For us, the Viking symbolizes a great sense of pride in where we come from, who we are, and of great things to come. Please enjoy this Viking Pride video that highlights this theme across all of the schools in the district: https://vimeo.com/327752901

    Dear Wareham Families,

    At the John W. Decas School, our youngest learners begin their academic careers in the Wareham Public Schools. It is at Decas that many essential study and social skills are formed. At Decas, children learn how to be students and here, the seeds of life-long learning are sown.

    A highlight of the educational environment at Decas is the commitment to movement as a teaching strategy. It is essential for young learners to be up and moving throughout their day and there is no shortage of opportunities for that at Decas. As well, the outdoor classroom is a vibrant, creative space for teachers to work with their students on hand-on activities in the fresh air.

    Please enjoy the video about the activities, opportunities, and positive environment at Decas School:  https://vimeo.com/328025491/b39474341c

    Dear Wareham Families,

    At Minot, there is a true sense of community that is apparent in each classroom. Every day, teachers begin with a morning meeting that promotes positive behaviors and sets the tone for the day. Student input is essential in these meetings, and throughout the entire day, as honoring student voice and choice is central to the philosophy of the Wareham Public Schools.

    WPS parent Maritta Milne notes that a building doesn’t make a school, rather it is the people in it. We couldn’t agree more. Please enjoy this video about Minot and the students and educators who are at the core of the community of this great school: https://vimeo.com/328177790/a1d0fe8aa6

    Best wishes to all for a wonderful weekend. As well, I hope that the April vacation week is one of rest and rejuvenation.

    Dear Wareham Families,

    Every day at Wareham Middle School, educators encourage students to be Responsible, Respectful, and Thoughtful. These three key words are part of the value system at WMS and are evident in everything that takes place there. From STEAM classes, to Integrated Arts offerings, to the Drama Club, to athletic events, these three central concepts are the heart and soul of all WMS classes and extracurricular activities.

    Please enjoy this video about how WMS educators set high expectations for students and how being Respectful, Responsible, and Thoughtful are characteristics that our entire middle school community embodies: https://vimeo.com/328996896

    This Wednesday night, members of the Wareham Middle School Drama Club invited friends, family, and community members to "be their guest" at the annual spring musical, which this year, was "Beauty and the Beast." I am always extremely impressed with the talent, motivation, and enthusiasm of the cast and crew of the WMS Drama Club. The club has an enrollment of almost 100 students who have the opportunity to hone their acting, singing, dancing, and set skills each year in order to present the community with a lively musical every spring, and this year was no exception.

    From the opening scene until the curtain closed, these young actors cast a spell over the audience as they performed the Disney musical in front of sold out crowds. Favorite numbers were "Be Our Guest," "Gaston," and "Beauty and the Beast." Seeing the students transform into the beloved characters of this musical was a delight for their family, friends, and educators who filled every seat in the WMS auditorium. There was both laughter and tears from audience members, as the students put their hearts into these performances. Many thanks to the directors and the volunteers who helped make this musical such a success. We wait in great anticipation to hear what next year's musical will be.

     

    Best wishes for a wonderful weekend.

     

    Sincerely, Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood
