Hello Wareham Middle School Families,

Thank you to the families that were able to attend our Open House and PTA meeting this week! We have an exciting week next week with the start of some clubs and intramurals. Please get your students involved! Club brochures were handed out at Open House and it is posted on our website.

After school late buses: Two Late buses will run for grades 5-12. In order for students to ride these buses, they must arrange to stay after school with a teacher or club ahead of time. Students that are not with a teacher after school, will not be allowed to ride the late buses. After school monitors will monitor students from 2:45-3:45. Late buses will not leave WMS until at least 3:45. Thus, please do not expect your child home until after 4 PM. It could take until 5:00 PM for them to get dropped off.

Parent pick on Thursdays: All students will be dismissed from door #9 which is by town hall and the football field.

Upcoming Events:

  • Past Due Forms and Signatures Please make sure all forms with signatures are turned in to your child’s homeroom teacher.
  • 9/17/19 Early Release Day Please make arrangements ahead of time. Your child needs to know where they are going on Early Release Days and how they are getting there. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Dismissal for grades 5-7 will be at 12:02.
  • 9/19/19 Clubs and Intramurals 2-3 P.M. Most clubs and intramurals begin. An informational brochure is posted on our website and was sent home this week.
