    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    Happy New Year! I hope 2019 is a happy and healthy year for all our middle school families. Term 2 is quickly coming to an end. Please make sure you are checking your child’s progress on PowerSchool. The term ends January 23rd.

    Just a reminder that the power of sleep is amazing! Your child needs 9-10 hours of sleep daily. Try to take away the electronics and help your child focus on sleep at night. We see a difference with well rested children at school. If you need help or suggestions, please contact your child’s guidance counselor.

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    We can feel the excitement in the air at WMS. Progress reports for term 2 went home this week. Please review with your child. 

    As we start the new year, please remember that regular attendance in all classes is critical to your child’s academic achievement and future success. Our goal is for your child to gain the maximum benefit from the lessons presented to them on a daily basis by their teachers. It is very difficult for students to make up work when they are frequently absent from school, therefore, regular attendance is essential to success in school. If you are having difficulty getting your child to school, we can support you with this. Please give us a call.

    Upcoming Events:

    • 12/15 Trans Siberian Orchestra cover band Ornament at WHS tickets available
    • 12/21 Half Day for all student. WMS dismissal is at 10:02 AM
    • 1/2/19 Back to School
