Thank you to the Student Council members who volunteered their time to help with the games. Thank you to Mrs. Carrie Fortunato, Math Coach, for organizing this wonderful event and sharing this video.

One Thousand Paper Cranes

In response to the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the Francis Wyman Community has created a display of 1,000 Paper Cranes. In Japanese culture, the crane is considered to be a mystical creature said to live for 1,000 years. A Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds 1,000 Paper Cranes will be granted a wish such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.

The cranes on display have been created by students in all of the classes at Francis Wyman with the assistance of the Student Council and other 4th and 5th grade experts. The children have done a phenomenal job driving this process. Many of the cranes have been sponsored by students or families for $.50 each. Proceeds have been donated to Hearts N Hands for Japan to aid in the relief efforts.

Urgent Reminder for Family Math Night

Tomorrow night is our Family Math Night... all are encouraged to come!  Please note that we have had some confusion over the time of this event.  The time is 6:30pm to 8:00pm.  See you then!
