    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    I hope this finds you and your family healthy and safe.

    Reports cards will be mailed home at the end of this week. We will also include end of the year awards.

    If you were unable to return Chromebooks, hotspots, and/or books, you will receive a bill in the mail for all items not returned. If you have any items that belong to WMS, please drop them off this week at the main office and make sure your child’s name is on the items.

    Yearbooks will be mailed to WMS when they are finished. The company was closed for a bit and is behind. Once we receive them, we will call you if you have purchased one.

    We have a special meeting with grade 7 students, Monday, June 15th at 1:00 P.M. Please have your 7th grade child log in to the Google Meet site that teachers have given them.

    This certainly was not the ending that we had hoped for. We miss our students so very much! We appreciate all the support that families have provided children during remote learning. I do not know the full requirements or guidelines for reopening school in September. Once the district has finalized plans, I will communicate those plans with you. I know we will be able to work through this and make the best possible environment for teaching and learning given the circumstances.

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    I hope this finds you and your family healthy and safe.

    Most of our students are doing a great job with remote learning. Thank you for all of your support!

    We are almost at the middle of term 4. Progress reports for term 4 will NOT be mailed home. Please look at your child’s PowerSchool to view their current grades for term 4 on Tuesday, May 19th. This will give you a good indication of how often your child is signing in and completing weekly assignments. If you need your PowerSchool access, please email Mrs. Parsons at bparsons@wareham.k12.ma.us.

    Please remember that teachers are grading attendance and assignments turned in and you can see the grades in PowerSchool under term 4 for all classes. Teachers take attendance in every class Monday through Thursday. Teachers are posting assignments and available to students Monday-Thursday, unless there is a holiday. Fridays are a catch-up day for students to finish any work they were unable to get to throughout the week.

    Many teachers are posting a Do Now or question from which they are taking attendance. If your child does not complete the attendance requirement for a class, they will receive a 60% (F) in PowerSchool. If your child does the required attendance in each class, they will receive a 100% (A+). Up to two weekly assignments will be graded in each class. If no assignment is turned in, in PowerSchool you will see a 60% (F). All attendance and assignments are due at the end of each week by Friday at 2 PM. Some teachers may accept late work, but we are not requiring this from our staff after Friday at 2 PM.

    Term 3 did not close out for WMS students. Half of term 3 was completed and graded at progress report time. Thus moving forward this is our plan. All students’ final term 3 grade in every class will be the average of term 1, term 2, and term 4 or the term 3 grade at progress report time, whichever is higher.

    Final grades for term 3 and term 4 will end on June 16th, the last day of school. Report cards will be mailed home with term grades and year long grades after the last day of school.

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    Thank you so much for your support with remote learning. It certainly has been a new adventure for all of us!

    For grades 5-7 at Wareham Middle School starting April 21st, we will be grading attendance and assignments turned in and you will see the grades in PowerSchool under term 4 for all classes. Teachers will be taking attendance in every class Monday through Thursday. Teachers will be posting assignments and available to students Monday-Thursday, unless there is a holiday. Fridays will now be a catch-up day for students to finish any work they were unable to get to throughout the week. We understand that some of our families are struggling to balance everything during this time. We hope that this will allow for some breathing room for our families and students. Our teachers will be working on professional development and lesson plans on Fridays. On Fridays, attendance will not be taken. However, some assignments may be due on Fridays. Fridays can be used as a catch-up day or enrichment day. 

    Many teachers are posting a Do Now or question from which they are taking attendance. Teachers will make it clear to all students what is required in their classes for attendance M-Th. If your child does not complete the attendance requirement for a class, they will receive a 60% (F) in PowerSchool. If your child does the required attendance in each class, they will receive a 100% (A+). Up to two weekly assignments will be graded in each class. If no assignment is turned in, in PowerSchool you will see a 60% (F). All attendance and assignments are due at the end of each week by Friday at 2 PM. Some teachers may accept late work, but we are not requiring this from our staff after Friday at 2 PM.

    Term 3 did not close out for WMS students. Half of term 3 was completed and graded at progress report time. Thus moving forward this is our plan. ALL students will remain in their unified arts term 3 classes for the duration of remote learning. However, students will see their grades for these unified arts classes in PowerSchool under term 4. If we return to school, unified arts classes will change one week after we return to their original term 4 classes. All students’ final term 3 grade in every class will be the average of term 1, term 2, and term 4 or the term 3 grade at progress report time, whichever is higher.

    Final grades for term 3 and term 4 will end on June 16th, the last day of school. Report cards will be mailed home with term grades and year long grades after the last day of school.

    I understand that this is a lot of information. Please feel free to contact me via email with your questions or concerns. Our counselors are also available for support as needed. We are in this together and I want to support you and your child.

    Sincerely,

    Tracie Cote

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    I hope this finds you and your family healthy and safe. We at Wareham Middle School miss our students so very much. Please know that we are here to support your family in any way that we can. We truly understand this is a difficult time for all.

    Starting today, teachers will be posting assignments and available to students Mondays-Thursdays. Fridays will now be a catch-up day for students to finish any work they were unable to get to throughout the week. We understand that some of our families are struggling to balance everything during this time. We hope that this will allow for some breathing room for our students. Our teachers will be working on professional development and lesson plans on Fridays.

    April vacation has been canceled for Wareham Public Schools. April 20th will be a day off for staff and students, it is Patriot's Day. April 21st -April 24th will be remote learning days with the new plan. Students will be engaged in remote learning April 21st-April 23rd. April 24th, students will use to catch-up on work that was assigned. Since we are not using 4 vacation days, we do NOT have to make up those 4 days in June that we originally missed the first week we were out of school for Corona. Thus the last day of school in June will be Tuesday, June 16th, this includes the 1 make-up day we missed the first week for Corona.

    We have limited staff at Wareham Middle School due to safety reasons. Please email me if you need anything at all. We can do this! We can work together and do the best that we can do.

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    A very big thank you for everyone’s support of the PTA fundraiser! Our students had a blast at the Dance Fit on Thursday.

    Progress reports for term 3 went home on Wednesday this week with students. If you have not seen your child’s progress report, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.

    I want to assure everyone that WMS does have soap available to all students in all bathrooms as well as all classrooms have sinks and soap. Additionally, we have hand sanitizer available. Soap washes away germs and hand sanitizer kills germs. Probably best for all our students to use both.

    Wareham High School will have a parent presentation on the Dual Enrollment program at Wareham High School for all 7th grade students who are interested. It will be held on March 12th at 6:00 PM in the high school auditorium.

    Yearbooks for sale! Order forms went home with students this week. Prices start at just $15. Yearbooks can also be ordered online at https://ybpay.lifetouch.com/Order/SelectJob. Limited supply available, so order yours today!

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    Students enjoyed a jazz concert today. Please ask them about it.

    Students at WMS participate in NWEA Map Growth. This assessment has replaced FAST at WMS. "MAP Growth is a computer adaptive test created by NWEA that children at WMS take two to three times per school year. The results provide teachers with information to help them deliver appropriate content for each student and determine each student’s academic growth over time. MAP Growth measures what students know, regardless of their grade level. It also measures growth over time, allowing you to track your child’s progress throughout the school year and across multiple years." https://www.nwea.org/parent-toolkit/

    A family report with NWEA MAP Growth for Language, Math and Science has been sent home with your child today. This report was given to them by their homeroom teacher. Please make sure to ask them for it. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child's academic teacher.

    We hope that you and your family enjoy next week together. Family time is precious and means a great deal to children. Read a book together, go for a walk or play a game. Those are the things they will remember!

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    It is flu season. “The flu viruses are thought to spread mainly by droplets made when someone with the flu coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people nearby. A person also can get the flu by touching something that has the flu virus on it and touching their mouths, eyes, or nose.” (The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services). Our custodians have been extra vigilant at disinfecting door handles, desks, and handrails. We have had one medically diagnosed case of the flu that we are aware of at the middle school. If your child has a high fever or is throwing up, please keep your child home and go to your doctor.

    Boosterthon is back! This year’s main fundraiser is the Wareham Middle School DanceFit! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on February 25th. Families will then gather pledges for every dance move during Wareham Middle School DanceFit, which will happen on March 5th. This year our goal is to raise $15,000 for our schools and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    In many communities across the country, ALICE is being implemented. ALICE stands for Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate. Following ALICE will help our students and staff feel more confident and better equipped in the event of a real threat at school. We had assemblies with all grades on January 8th. They watched an ALICE video. Administration and Officer Baptiste answered any questions students had. We congratulate our students for being so mature and taking this information so seriously.

    WMS will hold a lock down practice drill next week.

    Winter Concert: Come check out what our awesome band and chorus students have been working on this year! The concert begins promptly at 6 PM in the middle school auditorium and will feature students in grades 5, 6, and 7. Hope to see you there!

    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    I cannot believe we are almost half way through this school year! Term 2 closes on January 23rd. Please review grades with your child. Term 2 is a difficult term with the holidays and break. There are about 3 more weeks in term 2 for all children to be focused on learning and growing.

    In many communities across the country, ALICE is being implemented. ALICE stands for Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate. Following ALICE will help our students and staff feel more confident and better equipped in the event of a real threat at school. We will have assemblies on January 8th for all students.
