Dear Wareham Families,

Happy New Year to each of you. As we end this first, brief week of school of 2019, it is a good opportunity for students to reflect upon the first four months of school and to look ahead to what the remainder of the school year has to bring. Encourage your children to consider the areas in which they have excelled so far this academic year. What do they perceive as some of their best strengths? In which areas might they improve?

January is a great time for students to set goals for themselves for what they would like to accomplish from now until the end of June. Perhaps it’s reading a certain number of pages, or chapters, or books each month, or improving organizational skills so as to be better prepared for upcoming tests and projects. Breaking down overarching goals into shorter manageable mini-goals or tasks may be a good strategy for many students. Help your children celebrate the progress they are making along the way.

Whatever goals, or resolutions, or intentions you and your children have set for 2019, I wish all of you great success. All of us here in Wareham Public Schools want to help our students achieve each of their goals and reach their full potential.

Best wishes for a wonderful weekend.


Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood
