Dear Minot Forest Families,
Hi, this is Principal Joan Seamans. I hope your family is doing well. We completed our first week of online learning. There is a dedicated page under Students and Parents with all our information for Distance Learning. If your child has his/her Chromebook and you have an internet connection, they should have logged into Google classroom. There is an activity to do which when completed, allows us to note attendance. Then teachers have included lessons each day to be completed. If they have not logged on, please have them do so to complete work they have missed. If you have any technical difficulties connecting or navigating any distance learning sites, please use the Technology Department’s ticket system on the WPS website and someone will assist you. You can find it by clicking on the Student and Parents tab, then Student Help Desk link. The link is http://helpdesk.warehamps.org/open.php. Some families picked up textbooks and packets if they did not have internet access at all. Please email me if you are still in need of Chromebooks or materials. I can make an arranged time for you to pick it up this week or we can try to make different arrangements if this is not possible. We do not want anyone coming to the school if there is anyone sick at home or anyone being quarantined.
Please remember to stop at any of the several locations to get your grab and go breakfasts and lunches. Locations can be found on the district website.
April 1st is Paraprofessional Appreciation Day! We would like to surprise them with a series of videos using FlipGrid. We are asking students to use the link below to record a short video about a Paraprofessional they are thankful for. In the event they are unsure of the Para's name, they can email their teacher to inquire.
To use FlipGrid, they have to be logged in with their Wareham Public Schools email. Simply click the link and then the Green Plus Sign Button to record.
Each video submitted will be moderated prior to posting.
Thanks for your help with this surprise project.
