    Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

    We have so many responsible, respectful and thoughtful students at Wareham Middle School! Students of the month were awarded this week as well as the Scotty Monteiro Award. We also called many guardians with our reverse referrals. Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us!

    The Halloween Dance was so much fun. We want to thank our PTA and the many parent volunteers. Our next PTA event is the Gaming Tournament. We have many excited children wanting to participate. The entry fee is $5 to participate. Spectators are free at this event. It is November 8th 5-7.

    We are trying to limit classroom disruptions. Many lunches, permission slips, homework and information about pick-ups are coming through the main office daily. Middle school is a great time to teach children about responsibility and being prepared. We appreciate your support with this! We will NOT be interrupting classrooms after homeroom.
